I am so upset and cannot turn the TV off, maybe, I am a news

glutton! I just want to share with you that the more I look at the footage of the invasion of the Capitol, the more I am getting angry that the loser encouraged his goons (they are not supporters, they are domestic terrorists) to march to Washington to defy President Elect Biden's win certification. That building is a sacrosanct to democracy and to see people invading offices, destroying furniture, looting and vandalising offices was hard to look at. To see a man put his shoed foot on the Speakers desk made me cry. This is the home of both Democrats and Republicans, where important decisions are made that affect home and abroad and to see the blatant infiltration by yahoos was sad,

Morning Joe is right on the mark now. He and Mica are not flawless but I like them at times. Someone dropped the ball with security as they knew the magas boss asked them to march to Washington to protest the certification of a Biden/Harris win. There are photos of the Capitol Hill cops posing for selfies with these goons. The Hill is armed to the teeth when people of colour has a peaceful protest and the liar's goons were able to go beyond the perimeter of the Capitol. There needs to be an investigation to find out why security was so lax when most people knew ahead of time that violence would ensue. I hope that photos of Hawley giving the goons a high five will surface and his political career will come to an abrupt end. He started the objections and the other assholes followed.

I am just sick to my stomach and never thought trump goons would dare to pillage an iconic building so sacred to democracy. The night before, I posted on FB that Rev Warnock won and was hoping that Oosoff would win after the mail in ballots were counted. I also said that I hope no violence would occur the next day. Started looking at the count, got tired of the interruptions and changed the channel. When I went back to MSNBC, I could not believe my eyes at the chaos that was happening. Been looking since then.

End of rant. Happy New Year fellow DUers,

1. I am so hooked that I used my stationary bike this morning

rather than go for our regular walk.

Now we have evidence of what some of us knew was going to happen under this fascist lunatic.
Lock them all up

2. Exactly. Joy Reid said it best if it were a protest by people of colour.

Her take brought tears to my eyes. The lack of security at the Capitol says a lot. There needs to be an investigation and heads should roll.

4. I too hope the murderer-in-chief will face the consequences of his actions.

When Nixon fucked up, both republicans and democrats turned against him. I keep wondering why the turtle, graham, cruz. etc. are so scared that they support him.
