The thugs have gone home - shamefully, mostly unmolested - while the country sifts through the rubble. Many remain stunned by the racism and incompetence of Capitol police who sat back and did nothing - "It's like watching a real-life horror movie - we train and plan and budget every day, basically, to have this not happen” - amidst firings, resignations and calls for investigations. Videos of rampaging yahoos surface: Unruly crowds chasing a black officer; entitled neo-Nazis hurling f-bombs around the People's House; the Arkansas guy who put his feet on Nancy Pelosi's desk and took a letter from it - and, it seems, earlier got a PPP loan from the government he was rioting against - bragging, "I put a quarter on her desk, even though she ain't fucking worth it, and left her a note that says 'Nancy, Bigo was here you bitch.'" Pelosi herself focused on the madman who poked and prodded and incited it all, calling for Trump's removal and declaring, "This man is deadly, to our democracy and our people." Unsurprisingly, he kept proving it: As the mobs surged, he was still railing: "These are the things and events that happen when a sacred landslide election victory is so unceremoniously & viciously stripped away from great patriots." On Thursday, reports surfaced he had "lost it," was "out of his mind," was “unstable, ranting and raving” and “bent on destruction in his final days.” Meanwhile, as far as anyone knew, the guy deemed too dangerous to be allowed on social media still had the nuclear codes.
Class act: "Nancy, Bigo was here you bitch."
