Trump was the hill the GOP all went to die on. I will never understand it as long as I live.

But now after this, we're going to see a severely fractured republican party going forward. The MAGA nuts (who are the real RINOs) vs the old school conservatives. My hope is some sort of true conservative party is born from this disaster of nutjobs, sycophants and traitors.

Yeah, surprised the Dems didn't win more in Nov, but it definitely collapsed in GA.  I thought the pubs would win it, at least one. I think the guy who came down with Covid hurt, he seemed like the one to win. Loeffler seemed fake, and was previous appointed so no history of winning over voters. Selling her stocks lol, who'd vote for that.

Personally I felt the country might've been better off split chambers, although, doesn't think get rid of moscow mitch as Senate Majority Leader?  nice... Also no more stallmates, although that could become a bad thing in pushing things thru.

Today should be interesting.

Mitch being out of power is a bigger win than Trump's defeat IMO. He's much more destructive and calculating.

Today and the next few weeks are probably going to be ugly.

This is sad. We should be embarrassed about this shit.  Do these idiots even know what the hell they are protesting?  I don't usually advocate this AT ALL.  But the Capitol/DC police need to respond with force.

These idiots are protesting a LIE brought forth by a SORE LOSER.  If you're any American at all, you can't condone this shit, period.

Yeah, it's because the federal government didn't order enough and fucked it up as usual.  Pfizer the manufacturer says they have lots of vaccines available and the US hasn't requested more.  Unless you are a total partisan that falls on Trump bungling this AGAIN.

Correct. Pfizer came to trump to give him the opportunity to lock in more doses of their vaccine in November before the roll out...and he declined their offer.

Apparently Mitch McConnell is giving a great speech about the importance of upholding the COTUS. I have not heard it yet.

In the meantime, the seditious traitors in the GOP are trying to block the electoral votes for Arizona. Which is just the start I imagine.

We side with democracy today or an autocrat who lost the election. There are no other choices. It's democracy and the rule of law, or game over for America. This is fucking nuts.

It's it.  Parts of the Capitol are on lockdown now.  A real leader would give a speech or tweet about how this is wrong and Joe Biden has been fairly elected as the next US President and we should all come together as a nation etc...but we know that Trump won't be making that statement.   More likely to come from George Bush or Colin Powell.

These people have gotten inside the building now.  They need to use tear gas, force, whatever.  These nuts are dangerous.

Edit:  also left out that these clowns may destroy a building that's been around since 1793 and is one of the symbols of our government.  Not that those people would give a shit about that.

Can’t blame this on antifa or BLM.

No, this is the real terrorist threat in America. The FBI has been warning us.

Trump should be charged with sedition. Why have the law if we’re not gonna use it?

The president of the United States has incited a violent mob to invade our nation's capital, which is now on lockdown for their safety.

Absolutely he should be charged with sedition and dragged out of office today. All the Republicans who are currently fighting against a fair and free election should also be charged.

Just got home and turned on the TV. Blown away. It's surreal.

This is verging on a terrorist attack. Lethal force needs to be used to remove them from the building.

I was perfectly fine letting Trump ride out the next two weeks. Not anymore. Get him out of there.

His comments towards Pence bizarre.

I also think he should be forcibly escorted to the Capitol. Want to rile up the imbeciles storming the Capitol? Get your pansy ass in the thick of it and see how much you like it.

I bet my life he'd start crying.
