Trump continues to speak at rally as Congressional joint session begins. Trumpists storm Capitol.

3 min read

Two hours after the Trump speech was scheduled, the joint session begins, leaving us to wonder what Trump said to excite the crowd. The big banana wants his republic back. Congress is in a session recess as the building has been “locked down”.

UPDATE: march protesters are now on the Capitol’s steps, and there have been bomb threats. Trumpists are now inside the Capitol building. A 6pm DC curfew has been announced. Gas masks have been issued to legislators trying to exercise their Constitutional duty.
