No matter who it is busting through windows to get inside, they are WRONG. I don’t know if it’s really Trump supporters, or if it’s Antifa wackjobs pretending to be Trump supporters. It doesn’t matter. This is freaking insane.

Pence has apparently been escorted out to safety. Members have been instructed to put on tear gas masks. Capitol building is on “lockdown” but you can see how much good that’s doing. Security today has been a complete failure.
This is a quickly evolving situation, but suffice it to say, this is a dark day in America.
Please support our Capitol Police and Law Enforcement. They are truly on the side of our Country. Stay peaceful!
