I find it hilariously broken and ironic that BLM and “democratic” protestors were brutalized by police and assaulted with weaponry all summer long and these idiotic fools can breach a governmental building almost 100% unscathed.

Omg. I can’t believe it’s taking the National Guard so long to get there to PROTECT MEMBERS OF CONGRESS WHO ARE HIDING UNDER THEIR DESKS!

G and I started watching all of this when it started and it was CLEAR that the D.C. cops were overwhelmed LAST NIGHT. No riot gear, just pepper spray, trying to hold back tons of these MAGA and Proud Boy TERRORISTS who were attacking. Bloodied people are now being carried out on stretchers from the Capitol, and people are being held hostage. This is a coup.

TRUMP MUST BE IMMEDIATELY IMPEACHED AND PREVENTED FROM EVER HOLDING OFFICE AGAIN.

My wife texted me to say my son wanted to take the rest of the day off because of the protests in DC. This was around 1030, I think? Before shit got real.

Absolutely nauseating scene. The way these scumbags are coddled and essentially left to have their run of the place, versus the brutal excessive force we have seen exerted time and time again against left wing protests...a lot of the horrible truths that we already knew are being laid out undeniably, in broad daylight. Don't know what else to say. To quote Trent back when Bush was reelected in 2004, "it's a sad and shameful day to be an American."

To tell you the truth, I was expecting similar shit to happen during your elections and was pleasantly surprised to see nothing of the sort happened. I guess they were still "standing back and standing by". This looks horrible and all responsibility lies with Trump and his supporters/enablers in office. Absolutely crazy.

My husband used to work near the White House, on K Street. We had an apartment in DuPont Circle.

And of course, my love of law ... this is all just sickening. Sickening.

There are flyers circulating from these people, they're calling themselves a "Militia." Mo Brooks was calling for a "Trial by Combat."

These rednecks are sitting in the seats where the Inauguration is to take place. There's barely any law enforcement anywhere. This is Capital law enforcement jurisdiction, which is Congress' police but it's not big police force.

I kept saying that there was an ensuing coup, but people laugh, hahaha yeah right, but Trump's "military" is this militia.

It looks like the loads of tear gas finally cleared the Capitol steps near the Inauguration area.

All of our friends from around the world, how are you guys perceiving this? I think all of us here in America would genuinely love to hear how the rest of the world is viewing this right now. I feel so utterly fucking ashamed right now.


I'm in the UK. Please don't be ashamed. I know Trump and his morons do not represent the nation as a whole. The world also saw the quiet dignity of Obama. My country and yours both need to do better and as long as we recognise that there is hope.

It was a terrible thing to see. Like many I was not surprised though. I'm incredibly sad for you, I can't imagine how tired people there must be with...everything. Hold on, hopefully it will bring the one thing you all need, a new president, a bit sooner.

Of course, that's how I read your first post also. It feels weird to me as well. The statements they made are, for once, factual and so I agree. I also found it strange to agree with Trump a few days ago when he wanted to increase stimulus from 600 to 2000. And while I agree with their statements whenever they are in line with facts I just also think it's important to remember why they are making those statements. Trump doesn't care if families hurting get more money he just thinks it's good optics for him. These senators don't all of a sudden care about democracy. They just had their workplace bombarded by terrorists and so they finally did the right thing.

It's like South Park. They're finally right. But it's for the wrong reason.

Anyone who storms the Capitol with the intent of insurrection and taking hostages and doing harm DESERVES TO BE IN PRISON. That's not protest. That's CRIMINAL INSURRECTION. THAT'S DOMESTIC TERRORISM.

That woman who was killed? I saw her face on the stretcher when she was wheeled out, bleeding. She looked scared. But, it was her fault it happened to her. She volunteered to do something DANGEROUS AND STUPID. That's criminal liability.

What still pisses me off is the knowledge that if those were all black people storming that building, they'd all be dead.

And we KNOW that's the truth.

We know that Trump was asked by the Secretary of the Department of Defense to call in the National Guard, and Trump DENIED this request because those people storming the building were "his people" and he didn't want to upset them.

So he put the lives and safety of his QAnon assholes above the lives and safety of MEMBERS OF CONGRESS AND THEIR STAFF. And these goons were trying to get into the SUPREME COURT BUILDING, TOO!

But Trump had the National Guard shoot tear gas at peaceful protesters - including NUNS AND PRIESTS - outside the White House (when Trump did that stunt with the Bible).

The good thing out of this (if there is one) is that Trump's political career is totally dead. Forever.

it’s weird to think that call was barely week ago. this week has been so strange. we flipped the senate! but the capital riot was just too ugly. i can’t get over that his base still supports trump after he led a few of them to their deaths.

the shock has worn off and it has become bewilderment. How is he still holding office? the house may impeach him but how long will that take? what damage will he do?

Doesn't he need a specific crime of which to be pardoned? He hasn't been charged with anything. Pardoning also implies, if not outright confirms, that he did commit a crime; that seems to be lost on him.

He could issue a blanket pardon for "any and all offenses". Whether that holds up seems to be yet another unanswered question. He's surely going to try this with his kids, Kush, Rudy...even if it only applies to federal crimes. Their legal exposure is considerable.

Yeah, more or less, that's it.

I was at Home Depot once, and was waiting in line to buy whatever crap I was buying, I don't even remember what it was. This older white dude and his wife (presumably) were in front of me in the check out line. The dude couldn't help himself, and started telling the white guy behind the counter about his Obama-Kenya conspiracy theories. This did not turn out to be a short moment. He started telling the guy all about how Hawaii has been complicit in covering this up, recited what he claimed was Obama's real social security number, then recited some other social security number that he claimed was Obama's "fake social security number." This went on and on and on...

The guy's wife, meanwhile, is standing there with a vacant expression, saying nothing the whole time, just looking sort of defeated and miserable. The clerk behind the counter smiled and nodded his head repeatedly, and tried to not make eye-contact with me as I grew increasingly pissed off...

And in hindsight, I totally screwed up there. I should have said something. Not because this guy was wasting my time, but because he's a racist piece of self-indulgent shit who gets away with spouting insanity at people to validate his world-view. At the time, I was just so exhausted with the whole "birther" thing that it wasn't even shocking. I was just annoyed that I couldn't just buy the shit I was trying to buy, whatever that was... because like I said, I don't even remember what the hell I was buying at the time.

But later it really nagged at me. I should have said "Hey, asshole, nobody gives a shit about your insane racist bullshit. This poor woman standing next to you is locked into an insufferable position where she has to hear you go on about bullshit all the time, and maybe she agrees, or says she does, but YOU do not believe the shit you're saying. You know you don't really know what Obama's social security number is. At least, god I hope you don't. You KNOW this poor guy behind the counter is incapable of offering an earnest response or opinion, because it might mean he gets fired; so you're exploiting that. You're forcing him to stand here and listen to your bullshit, that you don't even really believe."

But y'know, I guess at the time, I just wanted to buy whatever the hell it was I wanted to buy and get out of there

Auto-correct. Point I was making is neither lets the other do anything they want and brick walls everything the other does, good or bad, no matter what the angle. Obama enacted his health plan, Trump got rid of it, Biden will reinstate it. 3 terms involving the same thing isn't progress.

Anyways, I'll see myself out.

I just want to say that I didn't mean to insult or belittle your opinion, for the record (I hope you didn't take it that way). I do agree that politics in the US have become very much like sports, in that many people will double-down and remain loyal to their side/candidate (or "team") no matter what, through thick & thin, win or lose (and in Trump's case, right or wrong). And no, it doesn't bode well for our country making any long-term progress if we just keep taking turns taking control of the country every 4/8 years and each side pushes their shit through while repealing and rolling back all of the policies of the previous administration like you said. It's beginning to feel like a power-shifting pendulum, swinging back & forth in an eternal tug-of-war.

Trump's now-unavailable tweets hinted at plans for "our own platform"From CNN's Brian Fung
The four-tweet thread that President Trump sent from @POTUS, which quickly vanished from Twitter, included hints of Trump's involvement with a potential alternative platform to Twitter and other social media.
"We have been negotiating with various other sites, and we will have a big announcement soon ... while we also look at the possibilities of building out our own platform in the near future. We will not be SILENCED!" Trump said in the now-unavailable tweets.
Earlier Friday, Twitter announced it had permanently suspended Trump from its platform.
The company also told CNN it will enforce its policy against ban evasions to ensure that Trump does not circumvent his personal account's suspension.
"If it is clear that another account is being used for the purposes of evading a ban, it is also subject to suspension," Twitter said in a statement. "For government accounts, such as @POTUS and @WhiteHouse, we will not suspend those accounts but will take action to limit their use. However, these accounts will be transitioned over to the new administration in due course and will not be suspended by Twitter unless absolutely necessary to alleviate real-world harm."

This is just sad to watch....he's like some immature little edgelord sitting in his mom's basement with nothing better to do than troll ETS.....except he's in the white house, and he's supposed to be busy being president.

it’s definitely hard not to laugh. the georgia woman that was trampled was carrying a “don’t tread on me flag”.
Bwaaaaaaaaaahahahahaaaaaaaaa!

Wha....wha... I shouldn’t laugh but....

If you look at that semiautomatic handgun stupidly stuffed down his pants, it’s no wonder what happened to him.

It’s okay to laugh.

Is "The Bannedstentorian" too highbrow of a joke?

The only person I have sympathy for here is the police officer who apparently was bludgeoned to death with a fire extinguisher, and I've decided I should stop pretending that I'm not laughing my ass off about the guy who zapped himself in the balls or the "don't tread on me" person getting trampled to death. I'm sorry, I can't help it, and I've needed a good laugh. Call me twisted and fucked up, but that's just hilarious. It's not like I'm glad it happened, but, y'know, that's some Darwin award stuff.

I feel sorry for Trump right now in one way: Biden has way more Twitter followers than him... by a landslide.
