GOP Congressman Refuses To Shake Hands With Officer Beaten In Jan. 6 Attack

91 comments

  1. Clyde was not worthy to shake his hand. The truth was looking him in the eyes and he couldn’t deal with it.

    1. @T. Mont I’m a progressive, not a trump clone. I said it would be nice to believe that the POS that wouldn’t shake Officer Fanone’s hand didn’t because he knew he was a POS.

    2. @S C Supporting cops? Why? Did you forget George Floyd? Did you forget defund the police? Black lives matter. It is pure Racism to support cops. It is a campaign promise. Did the black community just get lied to?

    3. @S C I’m definitely calling I don’t have a problem with calling my own representatives for information or to state my concern

  2. Fanone’s statement to the insurrectionists “…F*** you for being there!” seams to apply to some politicians.

    1. @Chris Corbin If you don’t even know the difference between are and our, you sure as heck don’t know what a commie is.

    2. @Chris Corbin Straight propaganda from a right wing twit (probably) or a paid agent provocateur (possible). If the former, I’ll wager you wouldn’t know a communist from a coconut. If the latter it doesn’t matter, because you’re typing what you’re told and tomorrow you’ll be typing in something else that you’ve been told to type.

      Either way – utterly worthless in every sense of the word.

    3. @Chris Corbin
      Let me get this straight – you think attacking the Capitol to try to stop the constitutional duty of members of Congress to certify the results of the election of the President of the United States is less offensive than a bunch of people protesting in the street? You think overrunning and beating cops nearly to death to stop the Vice President from doing his constitutional duty is less offensive than somebody stealing a pair of tennis shoes? You think hunting down congressmen and congresswomen and the sitting Vice President of the United States is less offensive than someone saying black lives matter?

      Are you the one who smeared human feces on the wall of the Capitol Building? Because you seem like the type of person who would.

    1. They have no shame as long as they are able to sit in Washington and pontificate nonsense to the idiots who continue to vote them into office!

    2. @dennis rideout
      I’m never surprised the shape pretzel you idiots are able to twist yourself. Hopefully, this is only the beginning of the end of your irrational & sick era!

    1. @dennis rideout oh Dennis, you are so lost. You seem to have an answer for everything. Typical Trumper. Just like him, you think you know everything. But there’s never been anybody smarter than you ever in the history of the world, right? You poor thing

    2. He doesn’t deserve to be protected.
      He looked like a scared slimeball in his Jan. 6th photos. Makes me sick.

    3. @dennis rideout to see if he had conscience or any guts, rather than just be a hypocritical coward.

    4. @dennis rideout Because the congressman is a coward he denied the riot-insurrection-mob-attack on the Capitol even happened he wanted to raise awareness.

    1. @David Alexander you’re living in a deep,all encompassing propaganda state. You will know reality until your start telling the truth to yourself. BLM, ANTIFA, proud boys all these are CIA created groups. Seriously.

    2. @adat smith Yeah thats not what unindicted co-conspirator means at all. And Boogaloo are far right wing I dont even know how you can be this misinformed.

    3. “all these are CIA created groups”

      And heres where the conspiracy nut comes out and I realize Im not talking to someone playing with a full deck who will actually listen to reason so Im out.

    4. @David Alexander you were never in
      You think boogalo is “far right”. You live in hyper media shitlib world. We live on the ground, in the midst.

    1. @adat smith Liar. Officer Dave Patrick Underwood was killed by a far right extremest. A member of the Boogaloo boys!

    2. @ARB mmm no. That’s what the media in the early days of the riots tried to say. And the booger glue dorks side with BLM anyway.

    1. @Tinah Schwenke Everyone, PLEASE CALL Andrew Clyde, GA Office on Capitol Hill, where he was PROTECTED BY CAPITOL POLICE DURING Jan 6, 2021 INSURRECTION…Rep. Clyde would NOT shake the hand of of Officer Michael Fanone, who was nearly MURDERED by a MOB of trump supporters…. this is DEPLORABLE. Please let his staff know that this is UNACCEPTABLE BEHAVIOR for a Rep. who Took and OATH to PROTECT AND DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION {FROM ALL ENEMIES FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC…Like the INSURRECTIONISTS of Jan 6, 2021 WHO BREACHED THE CAPITOL, first time OUR Capitol was stormed, since The War of 1812….Rep. Andrew Clyde is getting paid by TAXPAYERS DOLLARS, yet REFUSES to RESPECT the CONSTITUTION and Captiol Police Officers . Here is Clyde’s number…I left a message with his receptionist 202 225-9893

  3. How ungrateful can you get, somebody is sacrificing their life to save yours and you can’t say thank you or even acknowledge the good deed.

    1. @GeminII* so 3 of those 42 listed weren’t successful murders by BLM? Remind us again about the horrors of Jan 6th….a cop had a stroke. And a cop murdered a girl veteran trump supporter?

  4. Clyde will be voted out of congress and I can’t imagine how much Shame his family must endure
    Remember just because your father is a coward does not reflect on you or your family Its all on him

    1. @Carol Pitcher Everyone, PLEASE CALL Andrew Clyde, GA Office on Capitol Hill, where he was PROTECTED BY CAPITOL POLICE DURING Jan 6, 2021 INSURRECTION…Rep. Clyde would NOT shake the hand of of Officer Michael Fanone, who was nearly MURDERED by a MOB of trump supporters…. this is DEPLORABLE. Please let his staff know that this is UNACCEPTABLE BEHAVIOR for a Rep. who Took an OATH to PROTECT AND DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION {FROM ALL ENEMIES FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC…Like the INSURRECTIONISTS of Jan 6, 2021 WHO BREACHED THE CAPITOL, first time OUR Capitol was stormed, since The War of 1812….Rep. Andrew Clyde is getting paid by TAXPAYERS DOLLARS, yet REFUSES to RESPECT the CONSTITUTION and Captiol Police Officers . Here is Clyde’s number…I left a message with his receptionist 202 225-9893

    2. Carol Pitcher @ I don’t know about that. donald tromp’s entire family is corrupt including his son in law.

  5. Ran like a coward just because a police officer introduced himself and wanted to shake hands. Hate to think what he’d do on a battle field

    1. @m karas we have a saying here in Australia for people like that.
      (Clean version) *_”He’s a slimy little grub.”_* Meaning he eats the roots of your lawn and makes everything just wither and die. Undermines decency, etc.

    2. The coward assisted with the barricade only when he felt he was in danger; however, after discovering it was fellow Klan members he felt emboldened!

  6. “The only thing worse than a liar is a liar that’s also a hypocrite!” -Tennessee (Thomas Lanier) Williams

    1. @Gregory UK Yeah, because tresspassing is “overthrowing the government” isn’t it drama queen. You marxists are soooooo desperate.

    2. @Leonie Romanes You fail at any logical discussion, so, you just default to character assassination. Weak mind lad, weak mind.

    3. @Polar Opposite did I say ALL police? NO, I did not, don’t have any common sense in your head

    4. @Seamus Mcinnes typical of your kind to go off topic when you have NOTHING to back up your claims

    1. @dennis rideout Supports Federal Crimes and attempts to justify felony activity against the United States of America .

    1. He was just showing his anger and fury at the policeman by running away because he thinks that the policeman made a mockery of his beloved idol Trump!

  7. This is a new low for Clyde. He should have stayed at his desk when the capital was breached. He could have helped with the mob tour.

  8. Clyde didn’t want to shake his hand, he wanted to stab him in the back with a Blue Lives Matter flag.
