Trump and his supporters encouraged riots knowing it would result in covid illness AND death.

I have no idea if this has been discussed in the media or on here. I have been so busy with family, work and trying to keep up with the current situation. It's possible I missed this but I feel that I must post this.

It is INARGUABLE that Trump and his enablers knowingly risked lives by encouraging yesterday. The Republicans today who weaved lies about antifa and democrat conspiracy are just as complicit.

I am talking about covid people.

Statistically speaking, there were some people present yesterday who already were infected and there are many who became infected. They will spread the virus to innocent family members, friends and acquaintances. Some of those involved yesterday will die. Some of their cherished loved ones will die. Some of those faceless (and some we now know) people who dared to attack our democracy will die.

I am not being hyperbolic or histrionic. The covid transmission and mortality rates are clear. People WILL die as a result of yesterday. It was after all the ultimate super spreader event where emotions were so high that logic and reason was non-existent.

Sure we can blame the people who participated in the actual assault but there is a much larger and more tragic reality: it was encouraged and promoted by elected government officials. They ALL knew this would happen but their personal agenda meant more. Their political future meant more than the stability of our nation and the lives of their own supporters. They were treated like cannon fodder in a meaningless war meant to save face and nothing more.

For this reason alone they should be removed from office and prosecuted. Toss them into a disgusting cell. Feed them the slop that prisoners experience every single day. I include Cruz and Hawley in this. I include all of the Republicans who attempted to sabotage this election.

Insurrection is Undemocratic, Anti American and Illegal. Encouraging death and disease? That is PSYCOPATHIC.

1. Not a bit of exaggeration - they tried to infect Biden and Harris

during the campaign, and they tried to infect Pelosi and Schumer yesterday. Total thugs.

repuke congress members were begged to put masks on while under siege in small areas....and refused.

I am not surprised really but how stupid can you possibly be?

I feel like an asshole because my initial thought was I hope it was democrats who were smart enough to wear masks. I know there are republicans who were horrified by yesterday. I commented last night about Romney and how I believed there was no question that his eyes told how he truly horrified and disgusted he felt. Sure, we agree on little but he represents the loyal opposition our country and our party needs.

Still, we need a stable Democrat led government. We need to stabilize this country. It doesn't make me feel great thinking that way.
