    1. Yeah definitely scarier than the Democrat with all their guns. And that’s great, because they’re not lunatics like the Democrats. They’re much better. Trump will definitely get reelected. Lol

    1. Are there investigations about collaboration from insiders? There were those clips of people who knew details like secret passages and whatnot. Also talks about reconnaissance visits somewhat prior to the attack.

    1. Yet CNN literally had a reporter at the BLM riots stand in front of a burning building and calling it a mostly peaceful protest.

    2. @Leonard Akers sorry let me move that mirror out of the way of your accusations, what was it you were trying to say again?

    3. How he can be ashamed, if he don’t have a shame and any respect for decent voters, thinking that we are total idiots!

  1. When you predicted YEARS AGO that Trump would destroy his Presidency while taking the Republican party down with him. Prophecy fulfilled.

    1. @TheBestWayOne: This highlighting of his alleged achievements for the economy resembles another similarity between 1930s Germany and Donald Trump. The NSDAP was praised for economic recovery, partially driven by massively increased weapons production and the construction of the Autobahns. But were did this money come from? It was all financed on credits with a fraudulent scheme called “Mefo Bills” and vastly increased Germany’s deficit. These criminal “Mefo Bills” made it possible to hide the national debt, neither the population nor the world did know that by 1939 Germany was practically bancrupt!!! And Donald Trump? He also praises himself for a booming economy and at the same time America’s deficit exploded like never before.

    2. @Cliff Medina So it doesn’t bother you that the supporters of Trump are waving the Flag of the Confederacy in the Capitol, calling for the lynching of the VP for carrying out his Constitutionally mandated duties or the use of the American flag to assault law enforcement ( which by the way is a federal offense)? Must have failed civics class.

    1. HAHAHAHA! Can’t say it any better than that! I thought they were just morons, but yes, they are sick and they need HELP. Perhaps their constituents should come and help them by relieving them with those who are not insane.

    2. why infer that the GOP are mentally ill when in fact they are just lying hypocrites, only care about themselves and are pretty much complicit corrupt criminals.

    1. @shade38211 An officer died because of what happened to him at the riots. Why does it matter what it was? Your the only one implying it never happened or that it was okay .

    2. @Jacoba Smith Nice try saying I don’t care. Some are using it as political leverage. Any and all looters and rioters should feel full force of law. Making up stories by a large media outlet is not OK. Watched cites burn , police stations taken over, and courthouses assaulted for months. Sending guard was trump being a dictator then, now dems love police? Hypocrisy is ridiculous. Cops died in those riots and no outrage.

    3. @shade38211 If you can equate a protest (which you yourself said were mostly peaceful) with 1000’s storming the Capitol then yes you don’t care what happened there. You pivot right back to the whataboutism. As far as damage to the Capitol there hasn’t been an estimate put out yet so It could very well also total in the millions or billions. There are things at the capitol that are 200 yrs old. Irreplaceable. At the BLM protest in Washington they weren’t rioting, they weren’t looting but Trump sent the National Guard out anyway to beat them, shoot them with rubber bullets and teargas, All so he could have his picture taken at a church. Did you see any of that at the Capitol?

    4. The problem is it never sounds right. A coup is still the goal of all who signed on and voted to acquit. No matter how long it takes.

    1. Many police officers are complicit with them since blm movement thousands of police officers were radicalized because they were victims themselves with edited videos

    1. @Heidi Hogshire To humanity. Trump and his supporters are fundamentally bad people and should be kept away from children.

    2. Work to publicly shame all republican doners, pressure & boycott them all to choke off their $$$, work to see they wear their party over country seditous stain forever, & start work now to see they are NEVER elected to ANY public office ever again!
      Coup attempts & sedition must have consequences or they are only dress rehearsals!

    1. @Bradyn Lotterman
      Republican pols care so much about unity, they were willing to quietly allow Marolago Stump to let Covid raze thru the country.
      Real heroes all.

    2. @Bradyn Lotterman You say Biden has ruined people who need jobs but you want people to have jobs at minimum wage? How many more years should the lower class have to wait for decent pay?

    3. @Bradyn Lotterman
      See, this is where we know you’re full of Guano.
      Black Lives Matter is not the Proud Boys. Police bias against Brown people is real. And you want digital attention so, include me out. Peace.

    1. @Joseph Jucker I know. Joe Biden’s base are totally brainwashed too bad they don’t think for them selves.

    2. Agree with you. Wonder if Johnson finished high school? Like the 42 other GOP Senators, he sold his soul to Trump.

    1. @Lerian V that’s because you’re delusional and don’t live in reality. Go ahead, spew your whataboutism and deflect the fact that republicans invaded the capitol.

    2. @Lerian V these trumpists invaded the Capitol, threatened the Vice President, and attacked police. Until the left does what these kooks did, keep your stupid view to yourself.

    3. Agree, very much Johnson sold his soul to Trump (whose a personification of the devil, by no stretch of the imagination; look at Trump’s 20,000+ lies to us over four years.)

  2. This GOP Senator can find a way to excuse or Justify the capital Insurrection as not being a true insurrection, but can’t find a way to understand Colin Kaepernick taking a peaceful me in protest? Let that sink in!

    1. What has sunk in is how irrational your opinion is.
      .
      None of these people who breached the security of the Capitol Building will be charged much less convicted of ‘insurrection’. That is a specific charge and attempting to interfere with the certification of the electoral college ballots is not an ‘insurrection’.

      Rampant and flagrant voter fraud facilitated by federal, state and local officials to overturn the presidential election result is much more closer to the definitions of sedition and insurrection.

    2. kbhvac – CISA, DOJ, the Supreme Court, 60 lower courts, multiple ballot audits, recounts in every battleground state, an extremely detailed debunk of every fraud allegation by the top Georgia election official, virtually all polls showing Trump behind Biden, an approval rating that never hit 50% in four years, a phone call in which Trump clearly attempted to commit fraud himself…and the MAGA crowd still thinks he was cheated??

    3. “Let’s have trial by combat!” – Rudy Giuliani, at the rally right before the riot.

      “These are the things and events that happen when a sacred landslide election victory is so unceremoniously & viciously stripped away from great patriots who have been badly & unfairly treated for so long. Go home with love & in peace. Remember this day forever.” – Donald Trump, following the riot.

      “If she gets to pick her judges…There’s nothing you can do, folks…Well, I don’t know. Maybe you 2nd Amendment people…” – Donald Trump, 2016. (That statement got him questioned by the Secret Service).

      “Knock the hell out of ’em. I’ll pay your legal bills.” – Donald Trump, referring to opponents at a rally.

      Trump expressed support for extremists who surrounded a Biden/Harris bus on the highway.

      He echoed the demands of the terrorists after they were caught plotting to kidnap and kill the Governor of Michigan.

      He stirred-up a mob to go after Mike Pence for not doing what he literally could not do under any circumstances.

      Hey, Trump supporters, how would you have felt about that if it was Obama and his lawyer? You know damn well how you’d feel.

  3. Is Ron giving people the green light to break into his house and ransack it as long as they don’t bring any firearm? Oh, and also ok to kill one of his kids as long as they don’t use firearm to do it?

  4. He doesn’t care, he’s on the gravy train and milking the system. The Grifters is a republican documentary.

  5. Of all the sycophants, this guy’s smugness and stupidity reighns supreme as he summons his people, “Lunatic Fringe, I know you’re out there”. The GOPs new anthem courtesy of Red Rider’s Tom Cochrane, truly a visionary songwriter.
