Local elected officials and party chairs denounced the chaos that broke out at the United States Capitol on Wednesday after supporters of President Donald Trump stormed the halls of Congress.

In social media posts, Congressman Michael Cloud called the events “senseless violence” and State Rep. Geanie Morrison said the actions of the President’s supporters were “beyond the pale and not the actions of patriots or those who truly love our country.”

Maybe they need to find out more about the ones that were a arrested . They might not have been Trump supporters at all. My money is on they were part of the Antifa movement and were made to look like Trump supporter.

And that's why Trump, Giuliani and so many other Republicans were aiding, abetting and encouraging them, Billy? Right.
