Insurrection at the Capital

Lock the door!!!

This is the moment when Congress (preparing to count the electoral college votes) first heard that the Capitol building had been invaded by an angry mob. Disbelief was the immediate reaction. The last time the US Capitol had been breached was in 1812 when America was at war with the Brits. However, the 2021 mob were frenzied, radical Americans out to overthrow their own government. Today was an attempted coup.

Definitely a coup, encouraged and promoted by the sitting President... bizarre, and disgraceful.

Yes, it definitely was an attempted coup. Disgraceful.
