President Donald Trump, we were told, understood that he bore some blame for the storming of the US Capitol.

(CNN)President Donald Trump, we were told, understood that he bore some blame for the storming of the US Capitol.

And Trump, we were told, had learned his lesson from his incitement of a violent riot -- and wouldn't do anything like that again.

Except that when Trump actually spoke publicly for the first time since the riot last Wednesday, he was neither remorseful nor reflective.

"So if you read my speech -- and many people have done it, and I've seen it both in the papers and in the media, on television -- it's been analyzed, and people thought that what I said was totally appropriate," Trump said Tuesday before leaving for a visit to the Texas border.

Then he added: "They've analyzed my speech and words and my final paragraph, my final sentence, and everybody, to the 'T', thought it was totally appropriate. "

Trump also veered into his favorite subject -- how he was right.

"They're dividing and divisive, and they're showing something that I've been predicting for a long time," he said.

"I've been predicting it for a long time, and people didn't act on it. "

Trump's comments should function as your now almost daily reminder that there is absolutely no bottom when it comes to this President and how low he will go.

He is not remorseful.
