Default DC Capitol Riot & Subsequent Fallout Thread (Jan 2021)

There is a lot that's happened/going to happen around this so I figured it might be better to separate this from the Politics thread.

A few things that happened yesterday:

And this morning:

Will Sommer is boots on the ground in DC today, probably will be the best thread to follow:

That looks like more people than Trump's inauguration. This will not end well.

It’s beyond criminal how they are stirring all these people up with Bs claims of fraud. This isn’t something I ever imagined witnessing in Canada or the US.

We thought America's downfall would be another Trump term...little did we know that he'd get it done whether he won or lost...

This ####er and his family are a cancer to the nation and the entire world.

This was all going to come to a head this month.

This is a huge turning point for the US. Where we see if their democracy is for real. Will the checks and balances ensure that the democratically elected President move forward? Or will something insane happen and erode the institutions further.

People can protest, that's their right. If they want to get violent, that is also their right. It is also the right of law enforcement to put these ignorant #######s in jail for the rest of their lives.

Sometimes violence, for right or wrong, is the ONLY way change will occur.

All this hype and I still think Trump will slink away like he sharted. He will gather up his grift money from the "Stop the Steal" campaign, grab whichever crappy spawns want to come with him and slink off to one of his properties to focus on starting his career as a broadcaster who lies and cons people of their money. He will leave the sweaty throngs of believers to gather their para-military gear and head home to the crap shacks they live in.

So at what point do we see threats or actual charges of sedition? Would be something if those charges were brought against Trump after today.

I dunno, I think he's had so much success grifting his morons, he'll just keep that train rolling as long as he possibly can. It's probably been his most successful business venture. Why quit?

Because as a narcissist, money doesn't completely turn his crank anymore. He needs the cheer of the base to fill the black hole in his heart. He doesn't have the lasting power to be directly involved in politics and strategize, rally, talk to the electorate. He wants to get on his own soapbox on his own network and roll around in the adulation of the far right who worship him. Kinda like C3P0 and the Ewoks.

If you're wondering why things are quiet (for now), it's because the Trump children have been ranting on a stage for over an hour.

Wait... why are these folks threatening the police? I thought they were all about #BlueLivesMatter and Law & Order.

So much Covid in the near future for these rubes.

On the bright side, it'll be difficult for any Inauguration Day shenanigans from these clowns when so many have covid.
