National correspondent for Politico Betsy Woodruff Swan and former Senator Claire McCaskill react to Rep. Andrew Clyde’s (R-GA) efforts to downplay the insurrection and how he is emblematic of the rest of his party.

  1. He the congressman is nuts they have no sense of honor no integrity it’s shameful they need to be removed out of office

    1. @DrumWild that is what one would say without a logical response…..

  2. I always take pepper spray, mace, and confederate flag poles whenever I can go to the museum or the zoo. I don’t trust those giraffes, looking down on us like we’re scum.

    1. I remember when my grandparents took me as a child to DC in 1990. My favorite part of the capitol tour was when the guide said “First one to crawl through a broken window gets a free snow globe from the gift shop!” Fun times

  3. As soon as I saw the Jan 6th Hangman’s Noose upon the gallows, my first thought was: “That looks like a normal tourist visit”

    1. @Maggie Mims The funny thing about the Borat film is he went to a big conference where Pence was speaking and was wearing a KKK robe and hood and the people at the door didn’t even stop him to find out who it was! They didn’t really even look surprised!

    2. I’ve only toured the Capitol building 3 times but I never saw anyone beating the nice police officers with American flags or spreading their own feces on the walls. But that moron says it’s just a normal tour day? I distinctly remember feeling awed by the size, the beauty and the power of the Capitol. I just don’t understand how anyone would think to behave in such a dangerous and disrespectful manner in the most cherished symbol of our government.

  4. So rude, homie shutting the door on his tourist guests!! Hope this gives Clyde a big dose of STU up!!

    1. Wham wham wham !!!
      HERE FOR THE TOUR !!!
      Does anybody have any grey poop on…
      …The walls …
      Yet ?…
      …Because we have lots !!

    2. @Peters Peters That’s what they’ve done. They’re owned by the Russian mob and Kochs who are also owned by Russia.

    1. @Jim River I’m not the one blaming jewish space lasers and looking for bamboo fibers under UV light. Grasping for straws, try again.

    2. What does science say? The older you get, you revert back to being a baby. Is this possibly the issue with some of them? Just the thought…

    3. That also means jail Pelosi for not getting the security they needed it was a set up by the Democrats and some fell for it.

    4. @G Riley What about those people who broke and entered into businesses during the 2020 summer riots? Do the owners of those businesses have a right to shoot? When BLM & Antifa thugs break into a liquor store for example. Does the owner have a right to open fire on them? If business owners did that, the liberal media would go after them, not the criminals.

  5. The guy looks like Boris Karloff character. Credit where credit is due, he did try to barricade the chamber, but to then deny what he was involved in,in a positive way,as a tour,is mind boggling.

    1. I liked Boris Karloff, he was acting as in theatrics. Clyde is real, his evil lying is real. Another open white supremacist disguised as a GOP legislators.

    2. I think he was at the door looking for an opportunity to let them in. Like the state congressman that was just charged for opening the door for the rioters to enter the building.

    1. @Sasha Lyn who thought lies and lying can be a political party’s official mode of operation in a political discourse.

    2. @humanforotherhumans They seen their leader do it to thunderous applause. The figure why not me.

    1. Republicans have forever beaten the drum that government isn’t the answer, then set out to prove it by being as useless as humanly possible.

      The GOP playbook, since Reagan:
      1. Run up the debt with tax cuts.
      2. Blame socialism for the debt.
      3. Wait for a Democratic President.
      4. Block their attempts to fix it.
      5. Call them failures.
      6. Use it to win next election.
      7. Repeat.

    1. Dems pass laws that help like aca, voting rights and anti discrimination. Republicans fight against these. Republicans have been passing laws restricting voter rights, defunding aca with no back up.

      Who is the freedom party again?

    2. Republicans have forever beaten the drum that government isn’t the answer, then set out to prove it by being as useless as humanly possible.

      5. Call them failures.
      6. Use it to win next election.
      7. Repeat.

    3. These GQP are the worst criminals. Much worse than the mob, thieves, murderers, abusers, highjackers, and terrorists to be honest! PUBLIC TRUST WAS GONE. Once you continually LYING, BYE BYE!

  6. So they are saying that Officer Sidnick who died as a result of the riot didn’t matter? Over a hundred injured Officer’s are just making up stories? Or the woman who was shot in the neck really didn’t happen.

    1. @Bryan she should not have tried to climb through that window to get to the main chamber her death was her fault.

    2. @Polar Opposite, and MO – They did not exactly lie. Investigators initially believed he was hit in the head with a fire extinguisher, based on statements collected early in the investigation, according to two people familiar with the case. And they later thought perhaps Sicknick may have ingested a chemical substance — possibly bear spray — that may have contributed to his death.
      The media changed the information when the real facts were known, that he died of a stroke.
      It would be interesting to know what may cause a stroke

    3. @Bryan They did not try to fool anyone. That was the first information the press was given. Investigators initially believed he was hit in the head with a fire extinguisher, based on statements collected early in the investigation, according to two people familiar with the case. And they later thought perhaps Sicknick may have ingested a chemical substance — possibly bear spray — that may have contributed to his death.
      Only later the real facts were known, that he died of a stroke.

    4. @Polar Opposite But surely those “natural causes” were exacerbated by gas sprays and extreme trauma.

  7. I would not like to go to clydes house for dinner,impossible to get in with him barricading the doors.what a dope.

  8. Yes, the tourists with their combat gear and breaking the windows and doors down to get into the tour of the capital building when there’s was none.

    1. Let’s not forget the execution of a traitor in the halls of Congress.
      Its everyone’s favorite part of the tour.

    2. I visited Buckingham Palace and Tokyo Imperial Palace as tourist and NOBODY DIED. Never seen nor heard of any violent disturbance, crowd assaulting securities or destructive rioters with zipties during that tour

  9. The so called congressman has that same look in his eyes that ‘My pillow Guy’ has.. You know, that sort of angry, crazy look.

    1. @Random Internet User projection at its finest. Im not the fake account who hides and knowingly decieves.

    2. @kazolar whats color got to do with it? Oh thats right, thats how the racist left works. Always using skin color. Only a racist like you would call it a black guy.

    1. And he’s lied so much it’s hard for a normal person to fathom that someone could lie like breathing.

  10. In his next interview, Clyde will say he was trying to REMOVE the barricade so he could help give those friendly chaps with the stun guns and zip ties a guided tour.

  11. not only is he helping to barricade the door, he’s the ONLY ONE in the pic not wearing a mask!!

    1. Mask Off – That’s how the insurrectionists knew who was on their side.
      Mask On – Fair game in an insane situation

    2. FYI: This Clyde is a GUN DEALER in Georgia. Perhaps he colluded and gained from the insurrection which explains his motives of denial. Perhaps, ammo supplier?
