What Is Going on at Fox News?
"What is going on at Fox News? The first day, Monday, you had Tucker Carlson come right out the gate with several really bombshell glimpse and revelations about January 6th. He showed, for example, that ray apps was lying when he said he told the House select committee. That he was heading back to his hotel, but he couldn't have been doing that because there he is on videotape. So ray Epstein was caught, you may say, with his pants down. We saw a really touching scene with the shaman guy being escorted by two capital police officers through the corridors. And then into the Senate chamber. And so here is a guy serving what, 41 months in prison for what? Being escorted by two police officers who could easily have told him to leave, pointed him to the door, ushered him out. They didn't do that. And the reason for not doing that, which is that they wanted to tamper down the situation. It makes no sense because not only did you have the two cops and this one, you know, shaman guy, but they go walking by a whole bunch of police officers who don't even don't even really bat an eyelid. Don't even look up at him. Everything is fully under control. And yet they, so here you got this guy, and he's not well. I mean, he's mentally unwell. And he's serving 41 months in prison. Why? Basically to serve a duplicitous ideological narrative about January 6th. So these are the kind of almost chilling facts brought forward by Tucker on Monday. And then on Tuesday, nothing. A dud.

Tucker Carlson: The Real Story of Jacob Chansley
"Here's the man you've heard referred to as the QAnon shaman outside the Senate chamber. These are not rioters. These are people who wandered over from a political rally. We will not let them silence your voices. After the rally, they walk down Pennsylvania avenue where organizers had secured a federal permit to hold a legal rally on the grounds of the capitol. I know that everyone here will soon be marching over to the capitol building. To peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard. Once at the capitol building, things began to get chaotic, capitol police officers fired tear gas into the crowd, a few at the front of the herd broke windows. Someone opened the doors and many hundreds of others just walked in. Of course, they did make it the story, and at the center of it, the single most famous person arrested that day was a navy veteran from Arizona called Jacob chansley, often referred to as the QAnon shaman. The so called QAnon shaman. QAnon shaman, someone named Q shaman. Jacob chansley became the face of January 6th, a dangerous conspiracy theorist dressed in outlandish costume who led the violent insurrection to overthrow American democracy. For these crimes, chansley was sentenced to nearly four years in prison, far more time than many violent criminals now receive. What did Jacob chansley do to receive this punishment? To this day, there is dispute over how chansley got into the capitol building. But according to our review of the internal surveillance video, it is very clear what happened once he got inside. Virtually every moment of his time inside the capitol was caught on tape. The tape show that capitol police never stopped Jacob chansley. They helped him. They acted as his tour guides. Here's video of chansley in the Senate chamber. Capitol police officers take him to multiple entrances and even try to open locked doors for him.

But we were together in Pennsylvania and Harrisburg. And we visited the state capitol Doug must Rihanna gave us a tour of the state capitol and anybody who goes into the state to these state capitols. It's very moving. It's very patriotic, very beautiful. It's really educational. It's edifying. I'm not just saying this folks. You need to take your kids to these places.

It's so important for us to engage as believers of Christians and I think a lot of times we focus so much on the federal level, not realizing that it's the state level that really impacts our life the most is

Brit Hume: Never Seen Anything Like John Fetterman's Performance
"Brit humes take Britt Hume over at Fox News has been around a long time and he was on TV last night. Telling Brett bear, he's never seen anything like it. Well, I have been watching this and covering this stuff for more than a half a century, and I've never seen anything like that performance by fetterman last night. I'm hearing some commentary and his defense that says, look, you know, he's just going to be elected to the Senate and the only thing that matters in the Senate is whether you consider the Senate floor and vote I, yay or nay. But anybody who's ever covered the place knows there's a lot more to it than that. You have to be able to debate on the Senate floor to venture points to defend them. The same is true if you're called upon to offer amendments that you have an amendment to a bill that's very important to your constituents. You've got to be able to make the case for it in committee. You got to build a defendant. You got to do the same thing on the Senate floor. You have to be able to engage your colleagues outside the Senate chambers and outside the hallways of the outside in the hallways and in their offices to round up support for what you're doing. All of those things are things that John fetterman, based on what we saw last night is not now capable of doing. It's pretty striking. Beyond striking, okay? Now, if that wasn't bad enough, how about leftists and people so desperate and afraid that there's going to be a big red wave in 12 days? That they went into overdrive, attacking Doctor Oz, who again, if you watch the debate, was an absolute gentleman was gracious, not one time did he mock or denigrate fetterman's clearly impaired condition,

Charlie Unpacks the Most Dangerous Provisions of the New Democrat Bill
"I want to start this program by going into what happened over this last weekend. According to NPR dot org, the propagandist publication funded by our taxpayer dollars, Democrats passed a major climate health and tax bill. Here is what is in it. Senate majority leader Chuck Schumer gives the thumbs up as he leaves the Senate chamber after passage of the inflation reduction act. Senate Democrats after weeks of negotiations to revive the core of their election year agenda passed a spending bill, which would attempt to tackle climate change. The high cost of prescription drugs and lower the deficit by roughly $300 billion. So let's go through actually what's in the Bill. This NPR does a pretty poor job of detailing it, but we'll dance around with this, but let's start with this idea of climate change. I have to say, whoever came up with the branding around climate change is brilliant. It's an unbelievably brilliant strategy. You can call it a Trojan horse. You could call it a wolf in sheep's clothing. What's so brilliant about climate change is that you don't have to define it. Is that you have a unspecified fear that you could spend an unlimited amount of money on. Like AOC a $100 trillion. Why stop there? Why not a 130 trillion? You see, climate change is so brilliantly duplicitous. And it's a scheme to make people afraid, but they'll never actually get to the end point. That's what's so brilliant about it. So no matter how much you spend, there might be somebody with a fossil fuel somewhere in Midland, Texas, we need to spend another $100 billion to go find them. You see, if they completely change the economy into a green economy, destroying our energy supremacy, by the way, which is one of the most civilizational suicidal things that we could possibly do, they'll just then create a surveillance state to find out if someone still is using fossil fuels or natural gas, even

House speaker Nancy Pelosi's current visit to Taiwan has sparked controversy and raised tensions with China.

Ahead of the congressional delegation touching down, Taiwan's presidential office reported its website was hit by a cyberattack. Isaac stonefish is an expert on the region. We don't believe that Beijing wants to start World War three over Pelosi's visit. I think what we'll see is increased hacking against Taiwanese and potentially American assets, increased pressure against time we need and potentially American businesses.

"senate chamber" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"Hearings for judge ketanji Brown Jackson to become the next justice on the Supreme Court are over after four days Joining me to discuss the hearings and their import is Jessica Levinson a professor at Loyola law school The Republicans said that wasn't going to be a circus I don't know what happened to their promises What did you think about the whole atmosphere of the hearings Well I don't think it was a circus I think in some ways it was a horror show I mean the idea that she was questioned over and over again on this baseless allegation that she soft on people who violate child pornography laws was astonishing to me This is something that began as a fringe theory about a week ago And it really garnered a number of senators attention and time in the questioning and judge Jackson said over and over and explained in so many different ways that there is no there there to those allegations So yes it was different from the hearings for now justice Kavanaugh in so many ways But I also think it's curious that Senate Republicans kept reminding us of the Kavanaugh hearings because it makes us remember that he was in fact accused of sexual assault I don't think that's helping their argument here We'll also as I recall the hearings for justice Amy Coney Barrett were pretty tame Exactly I mean every hearing obviously is so much a product of what's happening outside the Senate chambers But the hearings for now justice Barrett were in comparison I think quite tame Obviously she had a different Senate Obviously we were in a different moment but in some ways I think this snake felt higher in that confirmation hearing because she was replacing a justice justice Ginsburg who had an ideology very different from hers and time was really of the essence in that case because people were already voting I think they were already sending back early voting ballots when now justice Barrett was going through her confirmation process As you mentioned crime seemed to be the focus of the Republicans attacks The last time a Supreme Court Justice was subjected to so many questions about crime was the late thurgood Marshall So was it a dog whistle I think it was two things One it hard to escape the reality that judge Jackson likely future justice Jackson and the late justice thurgood Marshall both faced intense questioning with respect to whether or not they're soft on crime Now they also both practice law in different ways And we've seen before for instance justice Jackson would be the first former federal public defender So to that extent I understand some of the questions about her views on the criminal justice system and criminal definitive Having said that I think many of the questions were frankly disingenuous and yes I think not certain elements of the party in harping on this idea that she's comfortable letting people out of federal prison and frankly trying to tie her to her clients both when she was a federal public defender and when she was in private practice people understand well the senators who were questioning her very well understand the role of lawyer and why they're important in an adversarial system and that lawyers do not have the same views as their clients in so many different situations So it did feel that some of the questioning is to be expected when you have the first former federal public defender who's going to be on the Supreme Court Some of the questions I thought were outside the bounds What about the questions on critical race theory Would senator Cruz have asked that of a white candidate Well it's hard to get into senator Cruz's head and his strategy but no I think all of the questions that you heard particularly from senator Cruz about critical race theory would not have been asked of a non minority Canada of a Caucasian nominee And I think that really brings to bear the fact that she had this very difficult role where she had to not just do what every other nominee does which is she had to answer the questions but not commit herself to any particular position But answer in a way that demonstrates that she's showing us she has a command of all of the issues But she also doesn't want to look to upset or like she's too easily thrown off of her game Like she doesn't have a proper judicial temperament And I frankly think that the bar for her when it comes to judicial temperament is very different Let's imagine that she had done anything close to which is this Kavanaugh did in his confirmation hearings I think we would have a very different discussion And yes I think we can't escape the conclusion that questions about critical race theory are very much targeted almost exclusively to nominees and candidates who are minority The only real news I saw coming out of this was that she said she was going to recuse herself on the upcoming Supreme Court case involving Harvard Is that a good decision What does that show I think judge Jackson's statement that she would recuse herself from the affirmative action cases that are going to come before the court at least with respect to the one coming out of Harvard shows that she has respect for the process respects for appearances We know that when it comes to a judicial code of conduct and a code of ethics that it is suggestive but not mandatory when it comes to Supreme Court Justices So if she really can decide whether or not to accuse herself I think that her decision to say yes I would because of my connections is the type of decision that helps bolsters people's confidence in the decisions that Supreme Court Justices make We don't know if she will similarly recuse herself from the companion case dealing with the university of North Carolina I heard some Republican senators flat out say that she was lying that they didn't believe what she was saying They said that her decisions were wrong Some of them almost yelled and they interrupted her repeatedly It seemed like they weren't giving her the respect the proper respect that she's due I think in so many overt and less overt ways and more implicit ways there were a number of senators who as senator dick Durbin said conducted themselves in a way that's beneath the Senate or maybe this is the new Senate Maybe this is now how senators conduct themselves But there were so many ways in which either the questions that were posed to her which weren't really questions were just features that misstated her record or baseless accusations the constant interruption or even in some cases referring to judge Jackson as her as opposed to a more respectful the witness or judge Jackson I think even in the way that some of the senators hold themselves when they were asking her questions in the tone that they use it there were so many ways big and small that I think some of the senators did conducted themselves in a way that I think we could conclude is degrading Thanks for being on the show Jessica That's professor Jessica Levinson of Loyola law school

Impeachment Managers Show New Graphic Security Footage Of Capitol Riot
"Note as the video begins. We are seeing the inside view as the mob approaches from outside and beats the windows. Endorse the images were riveting. Some senators leaned forward to get a better look identifying themselves in graphic videos of legislators sprinting down capitol hallways and members narrowly escaping out. Back doors. others looked away. One senator was so shaken that he appeared to tear up. That was the scene on wednesday as house. Impeachment managers kicked off their case against former president. Donald trump by making senators relive their worst nightmare. The january sixth insurrection at the very place they were sitting the. Us capitol waves were made when this never before seen footage was presented officer. Goodman passes senator mitt romney and direct him to turn around in order to get to safety on the first floor. Just be meet them. The mob had already started to search for the senate chamber minutes. After seeing that video mitt. Romney told reporters quote that was overwhelmingly distressing and emotional politically speaking. No one appears to be struggling more with the trial. Then bill cassidy who switched his vote. Tuesday declaring the impeachment trial as constitutional on wednesday the louisiana republican spent most of his time either furiously taking notes or pacing in the back of the room occasionally letting allowed size slip and when house impeachment managers played that video. He was seen shaking his head often and crossing his arms clearly disturbed by the footage. Later that night he told the press pool quote. I'm here to uphold the constitution. i'm upholding it. i'm doing. My job was his reaction surprising. Our own burgess everett reports. Not really he writes. That's par for the course for cassidy who's made a reputation. As an outlier. He's not a trump loyalist. Like lindsey graham or rand. Paul now cassidy is torn between what many of his constituents want critics everett notes have dumped him quote psycho bill and what he feels is his duty and the white house breaks its silence on the impeachment. Trial finally a word from camp biden until now biden and his senior advisors have avoided commenting on trial but cedric richmond. The president's senior adviser told the new york times yesterday that cassidy's vote to declare the trial. Constitutional was a quote profile in courage. Remember richmond is the same guy who famously said of cassidy. Quote dude is weird. Oh how the tables have turned because richmond is now adjusting his opinion telling the times. That cassidy has quote always been independent. A little insight into why biden is keeping his lips. Shut on you know one of the biggest stories in the nation right now. The associated press reports that white house. Aides say that behind closed doors weighing in on the trial would be a lose lose for biden that. Ap story says biden's aides think throwing his hat in the ring would just draw the focus away from trump's alleged misconduct and onto biden's own views but that strategy could change because the reports that no one is expecting biden silence to last forever especially if there is an acquittal a move that could push trump back into the spotlight and on cable interviews and inflame the country deeper.

Senate. Call the former president on insider in chief who reveled in the chaos of his supporters of the capital on January 6th joining us now to talk about the day or NPR congressional reporter Claudia Chrysalis and NPR's senior political editor and correspondent. Domenico Montanaro. Could have you both. Here. Thanks. Thanks. Claudia, you were actually in the Senate chamber today, where the 100 senators as jury members sit silently listening to the House. Impeachment managers make their case describe the mood for us. It was clear much of the time that I was in the chamber that the members were very engaged. For example, they were watching lead manager Jamie Raskin, in his presentation very intently reminded me of the chamber yesterday when Raskin was giving his emotional remarks. About the day he and his family experienced here. During the insurrection. I was seated on the Republican side of the chamber. Republicans were intently watching him and the other managers and that includes those who say they won't be voting to convict Trump like Mike Rounds of South Dakota, Republican member of the Senate. Also, Senate Minority leader Mitch McConnell was also watching. Very closely even watch some of these videos of the president's past statements on a television screen on the chamber floor. Many members were taking notes, and this includes those who have voted for the constitutionality of the trial, among them, Ben Sasse of Nebraska had a pile of no cards on his desk. Domenico. The Democrats were making the arguments today. I know you've been watching since the beginning of these proceedings yesterday what stood out to you compared to yesterday's testimony. Well, only later in the day here, have we gotten some of the personal passion and emotion that we had yesterday about the violence on January? 6th? Mostly today, Democrats had been methodically mounting, pretty dispassionate case to show Trump is the reason for why all of this happened. They claim that it's not just isolated to January 6th and tick through numerous things for months and months. That this was months and months in the making that Trump laid the groundwork before the election and drove it home after after that election and was aware of what was being planned. Um, it kind of really makes me wonder how and what the trump lawyers they're going to say in rebuttal, aside from saying that Democrats are being selective and use the word on that they didn't say that he used the word peaceful. In his speech on January 6th. Claudia tell us more about how the Democrats are actually building their case here. Yes, they're focused on showing the timeline of how Trump built a crowd of people who distrusted the election and believed they were following his orders. Jonah Goose, one of the managers of he's, a House member of Colorado. He also talked about this. Let's take a listen. Senators is clearly was not just one speech. Didn't just happen. It was part of a carefully planned months long effort. With very specific instruction. Show up on January 6th. Get your people to fight the certification. So from manager to manager they're building this case each piece building on the next the beginning, middle and end and today mark the beginning of that story. He made a point of connecting directly to their share terror that day, and this was especially apparent is, Domenico noted in the late afternoon when managers have shared dramatic sounds. And footage video footage from the day of the insurrection that the public has not seen before. This was sounds from police scanners of officers pleading for assistance. Pleading for their lives. It's seen as they were being assaulted by the mob. There's video footage from Capitol security cameras showing the mob breaking into the capital and another stunning moment where we see Senator Mitt Romney of Utah, walking outside of the chamber, running into an officer being told they need to clear out quickly and he is running. Behind this officer to escape the mob. Wow well yesterday, Trump's lawyers dismissed the House managers arguments, calling Democrats accusing Democrats of trying to cancel the former president by stifling his freedom of speech. Medical. What did the impeachment managers say about that claim right? Trump's lawyers yesterday said his speech was protected by the First Amendment. But Jamie Raskin, the lead impeachment manager, who we heard from earlier You know, he's a constitutional law professor, And he argued that the quote factual premise and the legal underpinnings of that claim are all wrong, He said. Incitement to violence is not protected speech, and here's how he put it with a familiar phrase. It's more like a case where the town fire chief Who's paid to put out fires sends a mob not to yell fire in a crowded theater, but to actually set the theater on fire. And who then, when the fire alarms go off in the calls, start flooding into the fire department asking for help does nothing but sit back, encourage the mob to continue its rampage and watch the fire spread on TV. Clea and delight. You know,

"Ransacking the House and Senate chambers and the offices of some lawmakers, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. The siege left four people dead and more than 50 Capital and D. C. Metro police officers injured around 70 people have been arrested. So far, the Justice Department is pledging to criminally charged Maura of the rioters, and the FBI is asking the public for help in identifying them. The big question is why the violence was able to get so out of hand in the first place. The signs were all there weeks ago. In some cases, a December tweet from Donald Trump invited supporters to D. C for a big protest on January, 6 telling them to be there and that it would will be wild. That's a quote leaders of far right groups like the proud Boys urge their followers to go. Trump supporters have clashed with police Monday night, and they were openly planning violence on far right social media sites. Joining us to talk about who these insurrectionists are and how they managed to plan this attack. Is sure Frankel she covers cybersecurity for The New York Times. Welcome back, Shira. Thanks for having me. And Elaine Godfrey's staff writer of the Atlantic, and she was there among the crowds in DC yesterday and she joins us from the capital now. Hi, Elaine. Hi there. Thanks for having me great to have you both. Sure. Let's begin with you. What kind of language was out there on on line ahead of yesterday's events. The language on these forms that people who were gathering in the capital on January 6th. They were incredibly clear that they had an intention to occupy the capital. We saw them using words like storm the Capitol occupied the capital occupy Washington. They were using militaristic language and talking about bringing weapons that I think left little in new on in the way of nuance of what they wanted to do when they arrived in Washington. Right, And so how many people you could you determine how many people were participating in these talks and how many people they were recruiting Way knew that there were hundreds and potentially thousands of people that were openly posting on these on some of these social media platforms that they were going to be attending in Washington, and we assumed that the numbers were going to be bigger because in conversation, many of them said, I'm bringing a car of my friends or I'm bringing my family or picking up other people along the way. So whatever we saw online, we assumed that it was going to be larger. And they specifically said that they wanted to storm the capital, or were they saying they wanted to attend this rally and then just see what kind of you know action they could stir up later. Um, I would say that there was a good number of them that used language like storm the capital's storm. Congress occupy Washington. Um, I wouldn't. I wouldn't characterize it as all of them. Some of them did, in fact, just speak about going to the rally and listening to trump speak. But there was this sense among them that there had been widespread voter fraud and that the election of unfortunately taken away from the president, and they wanted to see him serve a second term. And that they were going to Washington to try and make sure that happened. And these people were organizing, not on places like Facebook and Twitter, necessarily because of a lot of these groups have been banned from Facebook and Twitter, but from places like parlor and other Sites. There's one called the Donald. What Can you tell us about those sites? So we've seen them slowly Move also Facebook and Twitter as those platforms really cracked down on the far right movements, and they've migrated over to places like parlor and jab. Which of these friends, social media sites where people can really stay or do whatever they want, and in real time, they were becoming more more radicalized as they spent time on those sites. They served as somewhat of an echo chamber Echo chamber. Sorry where they could say anything they wanted, and with no one to contradict them. They could amp up their rhetoric. And so you know, in November, there was lots of talk of stock to steal. The vote was fraudulent. Let's try and make it right. And by December has progressed into let's go to Washington and occupy the capital. And I'm going to even post photographs online of the guns and other weapons that their plan to bring with me to D. C. Well and Elaine what was happening on the more mainstream sites like Twitter and Facebook in terms of people gathering there to come to Washington, at least To see Donald Trump and attend that rally, not necessarily maybe to storm the capital. Yeah, it's it's really interesting. I think you know, I started the day on the Ellipse. And it was. It was a typical sort of Trump rally vibe. Everyone had their flags. I talked to people who had met each other on Twitter or on Facebook and in certain Facebook groups on these weren't necessarily the kind of people Um uh, that are on on parlor or gabble. Lot of them are older. They just wanted to support the president. And they sort of they came out. They thought, Oh, I guess we're marching on the capital. They marched on the capital on Ben. They sort of thought so People are going in will go in. So it was kind of like these more mainstream folks. We're just following They weren't you know they hadn't brought gas masks with them necessarily, or or weapons of any kind, but they were participating nonetheless, and they had organized to be there. Similarly on social media. Right? Because Trump is the one who suggested that they marched down to the Capitol during the rally, so In that sense, Maybe those supporters that you're talking about hadn't planned to do that. But they were perhaps encouraged to do so when the president suggested they do so. Yeah, exactly. I mean, I talked to several people, and I said, What's your plan? I mean, Trump will be done speaking soon and what will you do? And several people said, Um, I guess we're going to the capital. I'm not sure. So it's so they just they they did what the president told them to do. They did. What? Um The folks who were a little bit more organized, were shouting through their megaphones. They sort of just followed along. He did with the president told them to do well, so once they were there. Did they have second thoughts? I think. Oh, maybe we're part of something. We don't want to be a part of So as I was approaching the capital, I hadn't realized things have gone south there because I didn't have service on my phone. I realized we were walking over barricades. I realized there were no police. Insight. Really. We started to get towards the West Lauren, which is which is overlooking the reflecting pool on bond. People started shouting, Get as close as you can get as close as you can, and people I was with, Um, who were these sort of regular regular folks said Okay, We will, um And you know, with the exception of people who had come with kids People just approach they got as close as they could. And the people who I think were worried about getting pepper sprayed, stayed back a little bit, but they were. They were really entertained and eager to watch what would happen there Watching people climbing scaffolding, people breaking in through the back way and fighting with the cops. They were. They were all sort of Varying degrees of interested and watching. So more entertained than shocked and horrified. That's what you're saying. Oh, yeah, definitely. So sure.

We know that the president held a rally early earlier yesterday as the congressional hearings were getting under way. He urged his followers to walk to the nation's capital while they walked there and then We saw the this quickly descend into chaos on I mentioned at the top. Four people killed 14 members of law enforcement. We're now injured as a result of this activity, so I know there's people out there who cheered on these writers and I used the word on purpose. I can also use the words domestic terrorism. This is this wasn't protest. May indeed have been some protesters out there who didn't Storm, the nation's capital, Our capital. But there was also some very violent members of this group. And I'm gonna go through the list limit later, the nine o'clock hour some of the people some of the groups that were involved because there's new narrative that's being woven. That suggests these were members of anti final and all of that nonsense. He always here on this on this walkers with this radio and TV. Well, that that's not. It's not our people. It's It's those guys. And we're just going to run through the list of some of the groups that were represented yesterday yesterday, and I thought it was intriguing, Mike that I saw on social media this morning, a tweet from the FBI. Looking for information, the the ideas of the people involved. I'm thinking to myself and I'm a huge support of the FBI. Just pull the video. Just look at the pictures. Clearly I'm doing I'm watching New York Times reporting this morning. And reading the names of the individuals captured in the pictures. How hard can that be? Again. Their affiliations are not the ones that are being talked about today. As I said, I'm gonna I'm gonna be a little charged up today. I can tell you that right now, and I've got a 3.5 hours to talk about it, But you will join that conversation as well. But for a moment yesterday there was a real danger here for some of our elected leaders. And at one point, Mike, one of our congressman actually took the time to talk about it. Yeah, absolutely. That being a Republican Mike Gallagher, he was able to call in the Wisconsin to afternoon news. He also made a video of himself saying is barricaded inside Vice President United States would just rushed Off the floor of the house by Secret Service. This is Banana Republic crap that we're watching happen right now. That's my Gallagher, Democrat Ron Kind, also able to walk through moments. The Capitol police told them to pull out the gas mask the situation. You just don't know what to expect. On. I think that's why Capitol Security had the actual quickly, at least in securing the leadership of our country the way they did that also extended to the U. S Senate, where around Johnson, who was we know has been a staunch supporter of President Trump also condemn the writer never should have happened. Peaceful protester one thing. This is not a particularly peaceful protest or lawful protests we mentioned at the time Steve Vice President Mike Pence was in the Senate chamber. At the time, people actually were inside of the capital. He was quickly rushed away. President. Trump, meanwhile, has been isolated to the White House and see appeared at the rally that preceded this event at the state Capitol. He did make a video yesterday. Well, Gettinto What That wasn't with the fall out from that was, but you had some high ranking almost the highest ranking elected officials, seemingly in some real danger here for a while. Yeah. I don't think we can understate this. This was a situation where the vice president was on scene. We have a speaker of the House. We had many high ranking members of Congress. Who were exposed to these idiots, and we're and at some point were in danger to the point where people were actually engaging. The police, and, unfortunately, ah young woman, an Air Force veteran, ironically, was shot and killed. That's how bad it God's. Now we're gonna talk about some of these elements today on the show. It is a fascinating look at the consequences of a president not accepting the results of an election. And it goes beyond that, because, of course, the president has been pushing this conspiracy theory for months now. Unfortunately, a lot of Decent, some decent sum. Not decent followers of the president have bought into this conspiracy theory. And as as a result of that we see what we saw in Washington, D. C Yesterday. I'm not condemning people who voted for the president. You've heard me talk about this before. Lots of good, decent, honest people Vote Republican. That's how they cast their votes. They don't buy into this nonsense, and thankfully, that's that's the reality for most of those voters. What if you were buying into this conspiracy nonsense, and that's what it is.
