      Very sorry to hear that - it was reported earlier that she was a Trump supporter.

        Sad whoever she supported. Looks like Trump is being condemned by his own party now:

        National Republican Party communications director Michael Ahrens wrote on Twitter that the attack amounted to "domestic terrorism".

        "Our soldiers have died carrying the American flag into battle for our freedom. To see that flag used in the name of unfounded conspiracy theories is a disgrace to the nation, and every decent American should be disgusted by it."

        Let's hope they are disgusted.

          Checked the news this morning to hear that four people have now died.

          Trump is so more than a petulant bad loser. How much does it take for his supporters to see that this day has come after he has spent years peddling fake news and fuelling prejudice and hate?

          Shame on his unprincipled enablers who cowtowed to him and fed his ego, not just in the USA but around the world. Such as...

            So sad - as if America doesn't have enough to contend with, regarding Covid and the economy.

              If there was any doubt before there is no doubt now that he will surely go down in history as the worst US president ever.

                I'm hearing that Trump has now agreed to an orderly transfer of power. Call me sceptical but I wonder if the back story runs like this. I wonder if the cabinet and VP have finally found a spine and told him that either he agrees to an orderly transfer or they invoke the 25th Amendment and boot him out? Just a thought.

                  He has just issued a statement to say that his term as President has been the greatest first term in American history.

                    Doubt it!

                    Melania Trump's Chief of Staff resigned with immediate effect last night - they should do the same - JMO.

                      Why should he agree?,,it’s not up to him.
                      By him saying he agrees means it is somehow in his power to have a disorderly transfer of power.

                      He is gone,finished,personal legacy in tatters.
                      Trump and his enablers Guliani,Cruz and all his other co-conspirators are dead men walking,as in no futures.
                      Just another failed rightwing coup.

                        As well as those mentioned above by JC, longer TV footage of the incitement speeches yesterday afternoon included Trumps son Donald Jnr also very vocally doing his share of inciting. That one is a loose cannon and chip off the old block and needs serious watching!

                          They all need throwing into jail. There had to be a great deal of collusion to have allowed these so called protestors to enter the building so easily. Pictures show that they used police riot shields to batter the windows in. How on earth did they wrest them from supposedly armed police officers? Pence needs to grow a pair and invoke the 25th amendment.

                            I get that JC. No president should ever have to 'agree' to that. It should be a given. But it hasn't stopped him being as obstructive as possible since losing the election. Watching CNN this morning they are reporting that use of the 25th Amendment is being discussed. I hope it is and also hope it doesn't stop there. His enablers need to face the music too.

                              Think this video from Morning Joe on MSNBC says it all.

                                Yesterday a reporter was explaining that she had interviewed Trump supporters lately, and many had never even heard the story of his phone call attempting to get those extra votes to swing the election - and when told about it, didn't believe it.

                                It seems that many of his supporters live in their own alternative world, where the stories they hear are solely from Facebook conspiracy theories, Trump's tweets, Fox News and the like.

                                It highlights the danger of fake news and lies perpetuated by populist governments and should be a lesson to supposed democracies everywhere.
