The REPUBLICANS refuse to honor the metal detectors that are outside the chamber doors at Capitol. We all know how special the republicans are and how the rules don’t apply to them. They have been called cowards over the last few days but it seems they have courage when it comes to pushing people around and not following the rules. Wow. How fearless they can be…when it doesn’t count.

  1. They’ll following their leader. Rules don’t apply even if it’s spreading COVID.

    • So true. They truly believe they are the “chosen” ones. Amazing. They are so terrible. They don’t care about spreading covid, they only care about themselves.The poor guards don’t know what to do when they start fighting because their bags set off the alarms, etc. So uncooperative and nasty. Spoiled brats, just like their boss. You’re right about that.

    Gigi, that would be Congresswomen Boebert from my state. Unbelievable. She’s a gun toting, right wing radical.

    • I think she walked away, after harassing the poor guard. These people who feel so privileged, never thinking of anyone but themselves and THEIR rights ONLY. People keep saying what cowards the republicans and it’s very clear to see. Bullies, right wing extremists, hateful, liars. Wow. Amazing. Trying to overthrow their own country.

  3. Assholes, one and all. And, frankly, any general citizen that continues to attempt to justify their nonsense is an asshole too. I feel like a civil war is brewing.

    • I agree. They are fighting on airplanes now. one trump supporter went after a flight attendant and they are fighting with passengers and showing trump signs on the ceiling. There’s no second chance, said the airlines. One guy actually had to be restrained. Horrible people. A civil war would give the rest of the world just what they’ve been waiting for, which is why I think trump and putin are doing this together.

      • The whole Putin/Russia thing is a whole other issue. Wtf? Our mortal enemy, yet he glows when talking about him/them, blew off the hacking they did and tries to blame China instead? It’s all just too bizarre. 6 more days. 6 more days.

      • SIX MORE DAYS and his life is going to be MISERABLE, for so MANY reasons.

      • Screw him and his entire family. They are now irrelevant. However, the mess they left behind is the priority. History will not be kind.

      • He won’t care about history. And he’s not finished yet. A lot of his power is gone but some of the republicans are still hoping that because of his large following of right wing extremists, he could still run again and win. That’s all republicans care about. They are empty, hateful, people who only think of themselves. That’s why this was an inside job. They were hysterical that they lost power and wanted to take it back by any means necessary.

      • I believe that to be true myself. But again Congressmen leading “tours” of Congress a week or so ahead of the rally? Looks and sounds like recon of the site was facilitated. They should be held accountable themselves. Wouldn’t surprise me if requests for additional police presence were squelched by the White House, knowing exactly was coming that day. Nonetheless, these freaks can kick and scream like toddlers all they want. It’s over. And, after tomorrow, their messiah can be charged with crimes again.

      • The tours were conducted the day BEFORE the riot. The republicans who did it took the soon to be rioters down hall ways and into places no one was allowed to go. They laid out the entire plan in plain sight. It can’t be over soon enough. And according to NPR 70% of republicans still believe the election was stolen. Three of the House republicans, Paul Gosar, Mo Brooks and Andy Briggs were in on it. Andy Briggs was working with Ali Alexander, organizing the riot since Nov 2. Paul Gosar’s family has been making videos for years telling the government how dangerous he is, saying that he should be removed from power immediately. These men were part of it and yes, there doesn’t seem to be any question that the police were not prepared on purpose. It was a set up and some of the police were part of the group, on top of that.

      • Oh, I’m aware of the ones whom led the “tour”, and when it occurred. They really do think we’re stupid, don’t they? There’ll be a reckoning for them as well.

      • The orange one did not pardon them, or his children. Insiders are saying he’s terrified of the law suits waiting for him and the trial for impeachment. He invited the big republicans to come to his departure deal and they all said no and that scared him. It’s over and his last recorded speech had to be written by someone else and he looked and sounded stupid.

      • Went off the rails…as usual. Good riddance!

      • Good riddance is right. Let’s not give him the pleasure of mentioning him again unless it’s to talk about his term in prison or his obit.

  4. When the day is over, and the doors are locked, and the shades are are drawn to a close, they are still fucking assholes. That is a given, and they will not change.

    Unbelievable!
    I don’t understand Republicans. Lincoln must be spinning in his grave.
