WASHINGTON DC; Congress had officially declared that Joe Biden was the 46th President of the United States. You think that this would be a day of celebration, but no. People are stupid.
Shortly after noon, hundreds of pro-Trump protesters pushed through barriers set up along the perimeter of the Capitol, where they fought with officers in full riot gear, some calling the officers “traitors” for doing their jobs. About 90 minutes later, police said demonstrators got into the building and the doors to the House and Senate were being locked. Shortly after, the House floor was evacuated by police. Imagine sitting there just doing your job, then someone barges in and calls you a traitor because their views do not align with yours. Boy, how volatile!
An armed standoff took place at the House front door as of 3 p.m, and police officers had their guns drawn at someone who was trying to breach it. A woman is in critical condition after being shot in the chest on the Capitol grounds, according to two sources familiar with the matter.
