What happened Wednesday in our nation's capital was a complete and utter disgrace, fomented by years of poor republican leadership and cowardice in the face of repeated lies and dangerous rhetoric spouted from President Trump and his sycophants.
The people who rushed into the Capital building are not patriots — they are criminals and terrorists who used violence to disrupt the lawful proceedings of our government. They should be arrested and prosecuted to the fullest extent. Further, President Trump should resign immediately or be removed through the 25th Amendment or impeachment.
Failure to remove the President and hold accountable those responsible for this atrocious day will give implicit permission for future leaders and criminals to act in the same dangerous ways. Shame on President Trump and anyone who continues to support him.
