Shortly after a woman was shot in the United States Capitol, Trump supporter Valerie Muldez of New Braunfels, Texas ran away from the Capitol to take a bus with her two children and her husband ” They gassed our children in tears, “she said.” It’s still in my throat, “coughed her 11-year-old Elisha

Perhaps Muldez had concerns about bringing her brood for today’s hand-to-hand combat. “No,” she insisted, “I have to teach the next generation how to stand up for justice, and I want them to see that these are wonderful patriots” she said, pointing to the amoeba that swarmed and devastated the nearby Capitol

Like so much in the Trump era, what happened here today was shocking, but not surprising. It was the unstoppable conclusion of Trumpism. It was the continuation of the “Millions MAGA March” in November that attracted many followers The President promised to return and raise hell unless the election results were reversed

“Something had to be done,” said Marilyn Bittner, who works as a “house pinball” in Maine. “They don’t listen to us in court or in the legislature, so it has reached a point where people will break in” she said

On the muddy lawn, a Philly contractor named Dave told me, “This is just the beginning. People are pissed off” Why wasn’t breaking into the U an act of domestic terrorism? ” Capitol? “This is our house,” he said. “We own it You don’t own it” Inside the building, Trump loyalists ran wildly through the halls, posing for pictures in Nancy Pelosi’s office and scribbling “MURDER THE MEDIA” on the walls while he tweeted her

“The building is ours,” said Dave Hall, an unemployed man from Middlebury, Vermont, who waved a QAnon flag on the marble stairs. He said his favorite news sources are The Epoch Times and One America News Network. Like everyone with whom I’ve spoken, he had nothing but contempt for the Vice President

“This pretty much solidifies what we already knew about pence,” Hall said. “He’s not freedom-focused, he’s not Trump-focused”

In various interviews, Vice President Pence has been described as: “Very disappointing,” “A traitor,” and “Not a Christian A man bit into a megaphone that Pence was” the devil “”

Groups of women posed for photos with their friends in front of the beleaguered dome, a perverse kind of “get one of me” tourism. said one person who was hanging on the stands and was supposed to be holding Joe Biden’s inauguration guests in two weeks’ time “This is what Trump wanted,” said another, not inappropriately

“YMCA” and “Macho Man” and Elton John could be heard over the roar of the crowd as the sharp smell of tear gas lashed the Washington winds

Oddly enough, I met Darinna Thompson, a 49-year-old housewife whom I interviewed in a Pennsylvania parking lot two weeks before the election, “You took it from Trump!” she accused me. What about the fact that Trump appointed judges and his own attorney general said there wasn’t a big electoral conspiracy? “Bill Barr is a fat, bloated, laden swamp creature,” she said with a shrug. How was your trip to the Capitol? “A bit of pepper,” she allowed, “But you should go in there, it’s beautiful. I thanked them for their hospitality – most of them are on our side, the Capitol Police”

In fact, there was only one person who told me he was troubled by the anarchy beneath the feet of the burglary “wouldn’t solve anything, and then seeing the police being treated the way they were treated is ridiculous” said David Ellis, a 60-year-old New Hampshire man who admitted he works as – you guessed it – a police chief.Nevertheless, as with Muldez, the anarchy did not lead Ellis to his decision to attend today rethink

The US. could soon give at least a million COVID-19 vaccinations per day despite the slow start, Dr Anthony Fauci said Tuesday despite warning of a dangerous week ahead as the coronavirus spiked

… “Every time you start a big program, there are always glitches I think the glitches have been fixed,” the nation’s leading infectious disease expert told The Associated Press
