Bill Press: Tear down this fence!

Certain events stay with us forever. Well never forget where we were on Sept. 11, 2001, when we first learned of the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center. Nor will we ever forget where we were on Jan. 6, 2021, barely a month ago, when we first learned of the terrorist attack on the United States Capitol.

We all watched in horror as a mob of Trump supporters stormed the Capitol, easily overran understaffed and unprepared Capitol Police, smashed doors and windows, pummeled police officers with the staffs of their MAGA flags, penetrated the sacred Rotunda and House and Senate chambers, forced the vice president and all members of Congress to flee for their lives and killed officer Brian Sicknick.

It was an unbelievable, gut-wrenching moment to witness the desecration of our revered shrine of democracy, the first occupation of the Capitol by an enemy force since the British seized the building in the War of 1812. But a profound relief four hours later to know that the Capitol Building was once again secure and Congress could resume its constitutional duty of certifying the results of the Nov. 3 election.

The mob was chased out of the Capitol. The insurrection was crushed. And the Proud Boys lost. Right? Wrong!

1. That's an interesting take.

It we try to protect the Capitol while Trump's impeachment trial is going on, the terrorists win?

Uh, sure.
