From great patriots

There’s more:

Twitter has now, belatedly, taken it down.

I’ll just keep updating this for awhile.

Guardian Live:

Ivanka Trump was fiercely criticized after she described the rioters who stormed the US Capitol as “American patriots.”

The president’s daughter said in the now-deleted tweet, “American patriots – any security breach or disrespect to our law enforcement is unacceptable.”

It was Pence who sent in the National Guard.

The acting secretary of defense, Christopher Miller, said in a statement that he discussed the deployment of national guard troops to the Capitol with Mike Pence, not Donald Trump.

“Chairman Milley and I just spoke separately with the Vice President and with Speaker Pelosi, Leader McConnell, Senator Schumer and Representative Hoyer about the situation at the US Capitol,” Miller said in the statement.

“We have fully activated the DC National Guard to assist federal and local law enforcement as they work to peacefully address the situation. We are prepared to provide additional support as necessary and appropriate as requested by local authorities.”

Just Pence, not Trump. Trump was busy cheering the insurrectionists on.

Staffers saved the electoral college ballots.

Give that staffer a medal. First, though, remove Trump from office.

Ilhan Omar is drawing up articles of impeachment.

There had been some rumblings among Democrats about impeachment after Trump’s call with the Georgia secretary of state was made public, but some Democratic lawmakers said they did not think impeachment was necessary because Trump’s term will end in two weeks.

So that turns out to be a big mistake.
