Rep. Eric Swalwell, a California Democrat, on Monday tweeted a claim that Rep. Pete Sessions, a Republican from Texas, had "met with terrorists who attacked Capitol and killed an officer. He told them to 'keep fighting.' They listened."
Not really an ideal person to be quoting given his past.

You are absolutely right- 25 dead, billions of dollars in damage and lost livelihoods. BLM riots were worst.

Mark my words, nobody will care about this inauguration and instead be focused on Trump's whereabouts. Then all talk the next day will be about Trump on social media. Trump=ratings=more money

$51.2 Billion lost cap between Twitter and Facebook combined since the ban. Trump was in the top 10 of most followers and number one of active politicians. Twitter had a hate/hate relationship with Trump but continued to let him post. No doubt they will reluctantly let Trump back on for financial concerns but by that time Trump will have made his own platform.

Add in the over 340K Americans killed due to his incompetence
If he single-handedly killed 340K, shouldn't every single death of every single person around the World be blamed on their country's president/leaders? Even MSM covered China's lying about the severity of the virus and silencing doctors who wanted to warn everyone.

And then back in reality, Pence was the one who deployed the national guard
"While Trump was less involved in giving orders Wednesday, he gave Miller the green light earlier in the week." Read to the end of the article not what NBC and CNN says.

No he didn't. That was Pence. Arsonists don't get credit for putting out fires they started
Nope, POTUS is in charge of National Guard and they aren't deployed unless he gives the green light.

President Trump needs to speak to the nation on TV demanding a peaceful handover of power. He need to man up.
He already conceded and said he would have a smooth transition of power. Why do you choose to ignore this? He also condemned the riots and he called the National Guard. You hate him that you only choose to comment negativity I guess and ignore evidence.

Of course. Most sane people are friends/colleagues/neighbors etc. Despite their political outlook. But the emboldened, the bizarre, the fantasists, bigots and echo chamber fascists are not most people. Thankfully.
If you say this, how about stopping to generalize 74 million people as far right extremists just because they filled in a bubble on a ballot? People have reasons for choosing candidates even if they don't agree with everything.

I talked to my buddy in the US the other day. He said there's been a tension simmering under the air for a few years now.
Glad to know your buddy represents 330 million people. My entire family, friends, colleagues, classmates live there and nobody gives a care. In fact, they live a Democrat run State and both Republicans and Democrats are signing a petition to remove the governor.

Basically Trump's fan base is white supremacist, anti-Semite, neoo-Nazi, neo-Confederate, white power trash, etc. So why not just come out and say it?
You do realize that most voters in the U.S. don't sit at home dwelling on politics all day? People vote, election result was whatever and are back to trying to live their lives. Oh and those who voted for Biden and Trump actually live under the same roof, work together, live in the same neighborhood, etc. and relationship has remained the same. Less than half of the U.S. voted for Trump or Biden. Those people are either minors, unregistered voters, don't care to vote or voted for other party candidates. So you are generalizing tens of millions of people by filling in a bubble on a ballot sheet.

Yet China, which has broadly controlled the pandemic on its soil

To say precisely, designated hospitals for covid care. The large majority hospitals, mostly private and smaller sized, are not yet involved. Many beds, or about 80% of total numbers have still remained unused
Talked to a doctor yesterday that works in one of the main hospitals in Tennoji, Osaka. She said the same exact thing. Her hospital has been dead since the pandemic started as people are either told to go to the Covid hospital if showing signs or people are nervous to go to the hospital even for general check-ups.

For all those who conveniently ignore history-
1801 - John Adams, unhappy at the outcome of the election of 1800, did not remain in Washington to witness the inauguration of Thomas Jefferson, his successor.
1829 - John Quincy Adams left town, unwilling to be present for Andrew Jackson's inauguration.
1869 - Andrew Johnson was “angrily conducting a cabinet meeting” as his successor, Ulysses S. Grant, was being inaugurated.
1921 - Woodrow Wilson did not attend Warren G. Harding's inauguration, saying he was sick.

Celebrating failure is becoming routine for Trump supporters. A drowning man will clutch at any straw. I suppose there isn't anything else left to celebrate after 4 years of abject incompetence, corruption and failure.
But fear not, he loves you. You're special.

I spent the day watching it on the news. I don't recall any people of color. I'm sure there were a few there. But the idea that they were there in any kind of numbers at all is as silly as taking Trump's claims of his inauguration numbers as reality.
"11% of African Americans, 31% of Hispanics and 30% of Asian Americans voted for Trump, up 3 percentage points from 2016 among all three groups." From Reuters. Still can't find the link though of Trump being best friends with a KKK leader though. Oh wait, it was that other guy.

Trump's thugs = WLM White Lives Matter and were given a free hand by the law enforcement agencies.
Sorry to disturb you as you post the same message over and over. Please go ahead and watch all of the protesters from yesterday then come back and tell me about how the entire crowd was white. You dismissing Trump supporters as all white is in itself racist.

This is no joke and may cause some suicides. There have already been suicides in Japan due to Covid patients being shunned by their neighbors and companies. In a different country, a lawsuit would be filed.

Scary, I often take the Nishi-Meihan and get off at Yamato Koriyama IC. I have seen an old person driving the wrong way on the Nishi Meihan a few times actually as there are exits without toll gates so a car can easily go the wrong way without being stopped.

That mask....everyone thinks it will stop it.......IT DOES NOT!
Funny thing is that during the BLM riots where people were walking in large groups shoulder to shoulder, people on here were saying it was no problem because people were wearing masks. The Japanese do it and all people do is hate for basically congregating in a group the same exact way. I guess people get a pass if you agree with the cause.
