    1. @Billy Thomas Another failed career Democrat? President Joe Biden is NOT a failed career Democrat! President Joe Biden is a successful politician that America needs! You are always assumed that the Democrats are socialist because of lies that come from the pro-Trump media, the QAnon conspiracy theorists, and those bad actors with Facebook accounts!

    2. Trump would have been straightjacketed and thrown in Eloise, read the Children’s book where she lives in “the Trump Hotel”. He’s so FEARFUL in his Sociopathic heart. Military school, mama neglect? To old for therapy diagnosis, Guantanamo isn’t being used, he is a True American SECURITY DANGER!

    3. Bad humans, most people are not like that and it’s easy to see those that are, look at the Az rally videos, there you have 3000 of them. Well, will be about 2000 in a few weeks after COVID gets a third of them.

    4. How do you like the America we live in right now under the Biden Administration ? It’s going to get a lot worse you are not exempt because you are a democratic voter! You have to suffer with the rest of us!

  1. As I watch this happen live on TV all I could think was Trump is sitting in the White House giddy as a school girl this is happening right now

    1. you thought,, thats all your hate , dont throw your sensitive feelings into reality,, no one cares,, if your lgbtq, do your job state the facts,,

    2. There isnt a single comment including the original comment here the hold a single slice of intelligence

    3. @Judy Chandler Yes, he probably wanted to be near the bunker. God knows what he had planned after the insurrection.

  2. Dead democracy or dead fascists, which do we want? There is no compromise. Ask anyone who fought in WW 2.

    1. the problem, they get fewer and fewer, we here in germany at least get a good amount of history lessons about it in school, and almost every day on some tv channel

    2. Dear fascists serve other purposes too. They can help hold shipping containers on the floor of the ocean, providing the starter for a new reef. And before then, competing squads/units can stack them up for keeping score.

    3. Please excuse me, BUT, do you know, without a few Google search’s, the what where when and who about Fascism?
      I don’t mean to offend but I find far too many people throw the word around without know those 4 W’s.

      Yes I’ve known since I was 8yo, it was 1964. It was a time when they actually taught students how to think critically, and I was a very precocious child;)
      I’m a very precocious 65yo also;)lol

  3. Maybe electing a reality TV host who dodged the draft,
    is a compulsive liar,
    and cheats at golf
    was a bad idea.

    1. @LLL Don’t forget they also think he is the chosen one! God wouldn’t know him and vice versa he wouldn’t know God!

    2. @dedrick cutrer you don’t think his pardons were politically motivated? I’m pretty little Wayne was pardoned just to get votes. Wake up !

    3. @dedrick cutrer I don’t understand the loosing wealth part either. Did he close his businesses while in office? Easily fooled

  4. Only other time when Trump is happier than watching the insurrection is…..when he’s contemplating dating his own daughter!

    1. @Brenda Byars Oh sure and the pope too right? It’s not Joe as president it’s a life model decoy.

    1. Through the wonders of television we watched as that TRAITOR looked on while his rag tag domestic enemy combatants attacked the Capitol.
      President Biden, as Commander in Chief, needs to order a military commission to investigate this matter so that he too complies with his duty in the Uniform Code of Military Justice. This was High Treason and the military would have no problem establishing jurisdiction.

    2. @perry roberts
      Perry, you are on the wrong side of the argument.
      Come to your senses dude, and do what is right to unite our country. Stop opposing what is fair and just, and live your life intelligently.
      We all need to stop treating politics as a sport competition and use common sense so we can all live in tranquility as an indivisible nation.

    3. The Insurrection all-points at Pelosi but since the Democrats have all the power she pick and chose who was going to be at the hearing and she chose traitor Republicans cuz she has something to hide

    1. @Richie Tattersall agreed!  GOP numbers will continue to drop because they’re dying from COVID at record numbers because they listen to Tucker Carlson and OAN rather than trusting the science.

    2. We watched democrats destroy over 150 federal buildings rioting for 2 years straight. Nobody charged. Whats wrong with this picture ??

  5. *I think “I ALONE CAN FIX IT” is what Trump said to Putin when the Russian leader wanted a puppet to undermine trust in America’s democracy and sow chaos including mounting deaths from Trump’s disastrous response to the pandemic. Although Putin definitely LOVES Trump’s response.*

    1. Trumps response to the Pandemic was right. Once the Pandemic started the monster was out of the box. Democrats couldn’t have done better. Trump placed a ban on China travel as soon as possible and was called a bigot by Niden. He got the WARP speed program running and made sure they had the funding. Vaccine was ready as Trump left office. Our economy took a big hit but did great compared to other countries. He did a good job with Covid. What has Biden done? Nothing. The table was set. All he can do now is scare people into wearing masks again. But the unvaccinated aren’t listening to him. He’s just not convincing enough.

    2. Russia is number 5 in Covid19 deaths number 4 is Mexico with India number 3 Brazil number 2 and USA number one 1

  6. Raise your hand if you didn’t need a news segment to know DT was reveling in the violence as it unfolded

    1. @Dave Gilmour it was after he told his cultists that he would walk with them. they were all standing in front of 3 large tv screens and were very happy, jr’s girlfriend was pumping her fists in the with glee!

    1. What’s the difference between Biden and Trump? One loved our country and what it stood for, built the greatest economy ever, and made us proud to be an American. The other has sold us out, made our country weak, and turned his back on our people. One is stroked daily by the media, while the other is censored because they are afraid of the truth coming out……

    2. So tell us what Trump has to confess to anti-American. Once again your arrogant ignorance of ”history” is showing. If you’d bothered to ”research” your ”chosen ideology” of anti-American, German/Eastern European created ”Marxism”, you’d know the ideology has an undeniable history of using lies, coercion, projections, fear tactics, election fraud and force, the reason for its repeated epic FAILURE and MURDER of those it governs. Therefore if you’d bothered to study it, you’d know you’re being ”propagandized”, so let’s have an example and an explanation-

      ”We’re trained Marxists”-Patrisse Cullors BLM Founder, vs.,
      ”I have learned a great deal from Marxism as I do not hesitate to admit”-Adolf Hitler.
      Ignoring ”historical parallels” is how ”history repeats”.

      Marxism and it’s ugly twin sister Fascism have identical economic/governmental ”goals” if one takes the time to READ and compare them in the Communist Manifesto and the NAZI 25 Point Political Platform of the NSDAP. Each ideology is all about government CONTROL of every aspect of a citizens existence. This makes it very clear that Fabian Socialist academia has been using the Hegelian Dialectic against us as a ”divide and conquer” strategy for the past 70 years by telling lies about true ”left vs. right” ideology and Hitler/the NAZI’s. These lies were designed to REMOVE the NAZI’s FROM Marxist ideology thereby making indoctrination TO the ideology easier, and you and many others have fallen for it easily due to a severe LACK of historical reference and common sense. Hitler was a PROUD Socialist/Marxist as his many quotes prove, and true ”far right” ideology is and has always been Anarchy due to the steady progression to the ”right” of political ”center” being for LESS/SMALLER government until you arrive at Anarchy.

      There never has been any such thing as ”far right Fascism” and in reality true ”right” ideology is nothing more than American Patriotism as it champions our Founding Principles of LIMITED GOVERNMENT and Classic Liberalism/”equality of individuals/opportunity”.

      So your Marxist/Fascist NAZI media is lying about the true ”Patriots” and about American Patriotism in general and you believe them. This is EXACTLY ”how” Hitler was able to murder the Jews. He told lies about them and portrayed them as being less than human. Let that sink in NAZI.

    1. @Compost Happens ‘the Democrats this, the Democrats that.’ ENOUGH ALREADY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    2. @John Beavin I’m sorry, I don’t have an answer to that, but I think it’s safe to say that ground is starting to be gained; I too want these people brought to justice fast, the more democrats press, the more Trump supporters will be exposed, be they capital building rioters, republican party members, Trump’s former white house staff or Trump himself; either way, all of them will be locked up.

  7. I guess his Bone Spurs started acting up and couldn’t be with the traitors as he said he would

    1. @bombastic attitude I just LOVE that he was absolutely mortified when it made international headlines!!

    2. @S Dot Your ignorance is grand.
      The distance between the ellipse and the capitol is a bit less than 2 miles and takes less than 13 minutes to walk to using Pensilvania ave.
      Nice try.

    1. I don’t know if anyone should take credit for being an extreme racists leading the lowest of low life’s who are themselves extreme RACISTS and the dumbest of the dumb with NO humanity themselves, all he did was show America that there are far more disgusting racists I’m America still, and Trump embraced and normalized it. Trump is STILL to this very day using HATE money to have HATE speeches and racists attending these things, he just did it here in Florida where Governor Desantis made a law against protesting, meant apparently just for black lives matter and not for his beloved Trump and the lowest form of people the extreme racists that should have been arrested by his law but no one was charged. I’m just saying while he exposed about %20 of America are racists %80 aren’t and WE WILL REMEMBER how Desantis acted in this matter as well as all his coconspirators, I don’t think he’ll be able to get back into a place of power seeing as he’s going to prison eventually and about %75 of Americans now finally see him for who he is and would NEVER vote for him!!!!

    2. @Paul Tierney lol trump supporters make fun of biden for a stutter but trump makes up words, can’t remember where he is, fouls up peoples names, doesn’t understand the different branches of government, tried to change a weather map with a marker and….it’s all good. 4 dimensional chess lmao

    3. @Joey Some say history repeats itself….we have so many parallels to Western European History in the early 1930’s.

    4. @Nicole Powers Biden does not have a stutter. What he has is a demented brain which has been oxygen deprived since 1854 when he entered the Senate

  8. Pence refused to get in the car with the secret service agents because he didn’t trust them.
    He thought they would execute him for tRump.

    1. Yep, I read the conversation he had with his body guard who was ushering him and his family to the car, I trust you he said, but I do not trust these secret service agents.
      That shows a completely different level of fear. Pence sensed trump had his own loyal minions within the secret service (SS).

    1. Well, the Manson family was heavily involved with CIA experiments so they probably would have rushed the Capitol if the FBI were asking them to do it.

  9. I expect NOTHING less from a grandiose Narcissistic man with minimal intelligence who will do ANYTHING to regain his power & authority.
    He will destroy anyone who gets in his way.
    Australia

  10. And this after promising them he would walk with them to the Capitol. They should have known that the guy who needs a cart to complete a round of golf and who walks down a ramp like a penguin was lying.

    1. Yeah and told them fools he would standby if they got arrested. Now that’s sad, cuz he trying to stay out of jail himself
      Them dummies following him,.got the brains of smoked roach

  11. Vegas is giving odds that more than a few members of GOP in the House of Representatives will be found guilty of coordinating with the rioters on January 6, 2021 including tRump.

    1. @larry5200 You win today’s “Most Deflection in a Single Comment” prize today. So, Larry, tell us. Did you gone your skill from watching Trump, the King of the Deflection, or was it through osmosis?

  12. Basically what Pence was afraid of was “the car” might drive him to some “dubious” destination and his own security details were not going with him…

    1. McCarthy will sneer and say nothing,congress people are sure they are above the law. They make the laws why should they have to respect such laws?

    2. Funny thing how you’re watching MSNBC and talking about ”liars”. Turns out not only has your media lied to you, but the FBI lied as well and as we suspected it was BLM/ANTIFA NAZI infiltrators who caused all the problems all along. You sit and listen to these Leftist propagandists and believe they’re telling you the truth when their outright lies and lies by omission are proven time and time again. ”History” shows that Leftists/Marxists/Fascists use lies, coercion, projections, fear tactics, election fraud and force, the reason these anti-American, German/Eastern European ideologies repeatedly FAIL and MURDER those they govern. That’s a fact you’d know if you’d ever bothered to RESEARCH your ”chosen ideology” of ”Marxism” PRIOR TO choosing it. And these facts are easily illustrated by the ”historical parallel” the following two quotes represent that your MSM has completely IGNORED-

      ”We’re trained Marxists”-Patrisse Cullors BLM Founder, vs.,
      ”I have learned a great deal from Marxism as I do not hesitate to admit”-Adolf Hitler.
      Ignoring ”historical parallels” is how ”history repeats”.
