Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer condemned patriots on the Senate floor Wednesday evening. He attacked President Donald Trump and “the people who follow him” after the chaos in the Capitol.
“Make no mistake, make no mistake, my friends, today’s event did not happen spontaneously,” he said. “The president, who promoted conspiracy theories and motivated these thugs, the president, who extorted them to come to our nation’s capital, egged them on. He hardly ever discourages violence, and more often encourages it.”
Schumer continued, “This president bears a great deal of the blame. This mob was in good part president trump’s doing, incited by his words, his lies. This violence, in good part, his responsibility, his everlasting shame.Today’s events certainly, certainly would not have happened without him.”
He said, “Now, January 6 will go down as one of the darkest days in recent American history, a final warning to our nation about the consequences of a demagoguic president, the people who enable him, the captive media that parrots his lies, and the people who follow him, as he attempts to push America to the brink of ruin. As we reconvene tonight, let us remember, in the end, all this mob has really accomplished his delay our work for a few hours.”
I think Schumer forgets that President Donald Trump won 75 million votes in the 2o2o presidential election. Of course it was not spontaneous. People are angry about the corruption and fraud happening in broad daylight. People are angry that the election was stolen from us. What happened in the Capitol on Wednesday is NOTHING compared to what would happen if every Trump supporter stood up and fought.
This is not over. There are still two more weeks until inauguration and a lot can happen during that time.
