"Peaceful protesters" just stormed the Capital. This getting real....Lawmakers evacuated. How long will it take to get it under control?

No what I was wanting.  I was looking forward to debates and perhaps some evidence being presented.   Hopefully resulting in the returning of electors to states to do a real audit. 

No one reported as harmed so far. Thankfully.

    Not true. Someone has been shot on the Capitol grounds and glass has been broken. This was caused by Trump, his supporters, and their ridiculous claims about the election. And he and senators like Cruz and Hawley have done nothing to discourage it. Trump instigated this by refusing to concede and support a peaceful transition of power. And this isn't BLM people rioting, it's white Trump supporters. Your president has invited violence. Thank you very much.

    It was true at the time I posted this question. 

    My President just told them not to be violent that that is not who we are. That we are to respect the law and order. To be peaceful and respect the Blue.

    He needs to stand up and concede the election and tell them to stand down and disperse. He and all these rioters are proving themselves to be despicable human beings with no respect for our Capitol, Congress, and national institutions.

    He tells them to be non-violent AFTER he foments unrest.  What a guy, what a guy.  He is disgusting and he should be physically removed from office immediately.

    He has always told us to be peaceful.

    Yes, right after he says something to inflame their violence.  Who are you kidding?

    And he just came on TV and told them to go home but continued to lie about the election having been stolen. He should be removed from office immediately.

    The election was stolen.   Not a lie.

    It has been proven.  Over and over.  More than enough votes to flip several states.   No one wants to have the courage to look at it.

    I was just on the phone with my boss and he told me that.  I'm appalled that anyone would think that he isn't encouraging them on one hand and discouraging with the other and when you have a bunch of unevolved Neanderthals with guns being egged on, you know which path they are likely to follow.  Trump should be more than removed from office - he should be hung.

    Should the Media report this as a peaceful protest, or a riot?

    It is certainly not peaceful.

    YOUR president has been encouraging this since Biden was elected.  He has done everything but lead the charge himself.  After whipping up this violent group of people, he then stands back and asks them to behave.  What did you think he meant when he asked the Proud Boys to stand by?  EXACTLY THIS.

    And m2c is suddenly silent. What can she possibly say in defense of having supported a POS like this?

    She is still defending him.  I want to explode every time I hear another excuse.

    If I am silent it is because  I am elsewhere.

    Yet, I listen to Trump all the time.  And have never heard him encourage violence.  Of course he would have to discourage it over and over again and the media would still claim he never said it.

    The media should report this as a coup.  It is long past a riot.
