Today is a day that will live in infamy.
I thought I was going to watch Judge Judy; instead there’s coverage of a coup in DC, our seat of democracy–on the day we were to join both Houses and formally count the results of our election, another step in the process to January 20 where we inaugurate Joe Biden as President.
On the steps of the Capitol, on the Senate floor; shots fired, vandalism, violence. Nothing less than domestic terrorism.
It seems as if Capitol Police were apparently complicit in allowing these activities, taking selfies with the criminals, allowing them access to the Capitol.
This piece of shit president and his attempted coup will go down in history as the darkest hour in America’s 250 years of democracy. He called for a rally of his idiotic followers on this day, he stoked the fires of hatred and violence, he told the crowd to use force to change election results.
Today’s attempted coup began with Trump saying to the crowd: “If you don’t fight like hell, you’re not going to have a country anymore,” and then telling them to head to the Capitol to give Republican lawmakers the message.
Like President Biden said, “This is sedition. This is insurrection. Enough is enough is enough.”
Senator Duckworth said they are planning to resume the symbolic vote count as soon as Capitol is secured. Democracy will not be bullied!
Trump needs to be immediately removed from office and arrested for sedition and insurrection.
This is the day after Georgia saved our country by electing Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock. Thank goodness for Stacey Abrams. She is truly a national treasure.
