    28 Tweets About Trump's Mob Storming The Capitol That Really Sum Everything Up

    "Well, that escalated steadily for four years."

    Today, thousands of MAGA rioters stormed the Capitol in Washington, DC. A mob forced entry into the building while Congress was meeting, in an attempt to stage a coup and install Donald Trump as president for a second term, despite his election loss.

    The scene in DC is incredibly grim right now. A woman was shot, the city is in chaos, and Trump has declined to take any decisive action against the mob working on his behalf. And many people have noticed how muted the police response has been when compared to the way police handled Black Lives Matter protests this summer.

    Here’s the scary moment when protesters initially got into the building from the first floor and made their way outside Senate chamber.

    They’re in the chamber. One is up on the dais yelling “Trump won that election!” This is insane

    A reporter is having a panic attack because we’re locked in the Capitol without any police protection, and we hear and feel rumblings underneath us. This is scary folks, especially after being labeled “the enemy” for some 4 years

    Switched to Fox News to see what the conversation for that half of America and the first thing I heard was “Unlike the BLM protests there’s no vandalism other than the breaking into the Capitol” and I confess to screaming out loud.

    Just so you know, these are the same people who believe KNEELING as a form of protest is unpatriotic and that organized protests in the streets are violent. So what is this?

    Per people close to the White House, several official and unofficial aides are trying - without success - to get the president to issue a stronger statement. He simply won't do it. He's been furious at Pence for refusing to do something he doesn't have power to do and that's that
