The rioting crowd who stormed the Capitol Building smeared excrement on the walls and left brown footprints down the hallways of Congress to show their support for Trump. While some Trump supporters fought police and committed violence that led to the death of five people, others expressed their “patriotism” by defecating on the floor.
Egged on by President Trump, the throngs of far-right rioters smashed windows, fought police officers and vandalized offices of lawmakers.Trump, seemingly oblivious to the stain his presidency is leaving on U.S. history, cheered on his extremist supporters in a since-removed Twitter video. “We love you,” he told them.
BS: As this was unfolding on television, Donald Trump was walking around the White House confused about why other people on his team weren’t as excited as he was as you had rioters pushing against Capitol Police trying to get into the building.
