Thanks for your take

on trump's Deadly Terrorist Attack on the Capitol Building. Another failed coup.

It's so bizarre to even be typing those words.

I know how serious this is but you still made me laugh. It's been so grim since Wednesday.

I made a post about it last night.. I wanted

to know, too.

A Capitol Police Officer Has Died Of Injuries From Trump Supporters' Riot


Police said earlier on Thursday that the mob "actively attacked" officers using metal pipes and chemical irritants such as tear gas. More than 50 Capitol and DC police officers were injured in the riot, and several were hospitalized with serious injuries, authorities said.


Four Trump supporters also died in the violence. Ashli Babbitt, a 35-year-old Air Force veteran and believer in the QAnon mass delusion, was shot in the neck by police as the insurrectionists were forcing their way toward the House Chamber, authorities said.

Three others — Benjamin Philips, 50, Roseanne Boyland, 34, and Kevin Greeson, 55 — died after suffering medical emergencies during the mayhem.


All this is on trump..

The three Trump fanatics who died during Wednesday's mob attack on the Capitol died from a heart attack, a stroke and being trampled in the Rotunda.

Roseanne Boyland, 34, from Georgia, Kevin Greeson, 55, from Alabama and Benjamin Phillips, 50, from Pennsylvania, all died on Wednesday.

Phillips, a computer programmer who traveled to DC with dozens of other Trump fans from Pennsylvania, suffered a stroke.

Greeson, who had high blood pressure, suffered a heart attack 'in the midst of the excitement', his family said

Yeah, that's really too bad.. lots of

necessary changes now for real security for our Congressional leaders because they sure didn't have it yesterday.

It just registered that Rep Jason Crow is from the 6th District in Colorado. My home state!

Yes, I was thinking that, too, when

I read their stories That they would be excellent witnesses in court.

Which it will come to. This will not stand.

And, omg.. I read they've already put up a 7ft fence around the Capitol building.

A New 7-Foot Tall Fence Will Surround The Capitol For At Least 30 Days

A non-scalable 7-foot fence is going up around the U.S. Capitol on Thursday, one day after insurrectionists broke into the building.

Here's the tweet if anyone wants to Rt..OMG.. I love her! I never saw her

Xena shows but I've seen her in other tv shows and she's good!

And, she sure knows a hellava lot about American brainwashed Fascists.

Wonder how Sorbo took the getting knocked off his Stupid Perch by Lucy!!

TY, catbyte.. glad they had Rep Spier

on to give her perspective.

And, this!.. More parts of the puzzle to investigate thoroughly! I hadn't heard about the repubs being ushered out before.. How Would they Explain That?!

It's disturbing that Rep. Speier said that all of the Republican reps had been ushered out of the gallery before the siege began and that there were only Democrats in the room when things started to go down. How and why were Republicans ushered out and Democrats were left there? Something is not right. I wish they'd gone into more detail about that.
