Joe Scarborough Drops F-Bomb In Fiery On-Air Takedown Of Donald Trump, Capitol Police

Joe Scarborough Drops F-Bomb In Fiery On-Air Takedown Of Donald Trump, Capitol Police

Huffington Post

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough barely concealed his rage Thursday during his blistering rebuke of pro-Trump rioters who stormed the U.S. Capitol.

The “Morning Joe” co-host dropped the F-bomb live on air as he slammed President Donald Trump’s incitement of the violence and the soft response from U.S. Capitol Police.

Scarborough also demanded the immediate arrest of the president, his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani and his son Donald Trump Jr. for insurrection against the United States ― citing their outrageous rhetoric that stirred rioters.

“So I wanna know from the Capitol Hill police, what is it? Is it just white people? Or is it Donald Trump supporters? Why do you scream at people for walking across the street, three blocks away from the Capitol? Why are you not as badasses around the Capitol, but then Trump supporters come in and you open the fucking doors for them, you open the doors for them and let them breach the people’s house?” asked the indignant anchor.

“What is wrong with you? I also wanna know. Are we a nation of laws? Are we a nation of one man? Donald J. Trump called for the insurrection against the United States of America,” he continued.

Scarborough laid the same charge against Giuliani and Trump Jr.

“That’s insurrection against the United States of America. and if Donald Trump Jr., Rudy Giuliani and Donald Trump are not arrested today for insurrection and taken to jail and booked, and if the Capitol Hill Police do not go through every video, and look at the face of every person that invaded our Capitol, and if they are not arrested and brought to justice today, then we are no longer a nation of laws and we only tell people they can do this again,” he declared.

A day after the Capitol riot, Trump's schedule includes giving the Medal of Freedom to golfers

From CNN's Betsy Klein

President Trump on Thursday will return his focus to the trappings of office on Thursday, one day after a mob of his supporters breached the US Capitol and the 2020 presidential election has been certified for Joe Biden.

He is expected to award the Presidential Medal of Freedom to golfers Annika Sorenstam and Gary Player, as well as Olympic athlete Babe Zaharias, a White House official told CNN.

With 13 days left in office, the White House has been inundated with requests for the Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian honor. Thursday’s presentation was not listed on Trump’s public schedule, which instead said Trump would have “many meetings” and “many calls.”

Earlier this week, Trump bestowed the Medal of Freedom upon Rep. Devin Nunes, and is expected to honor Rep. Jim Jordan. Trump is also considering granting the Medal of Freedom to Bobby Bowden, the retired Florida State University football coach.


House representative: I haven't felt like this "since I was a ranger in Iraq and Afghanistan"

As rioters breached the US Capitol, House Rep. Jason Crow said there was a 15- to 20-minute period “where we were surrounded and had no way out.”

In the moment, he said he reverted to ranger mode and ensured the doors were locked, moved other lawmakers away from the door and “directed the other members to remove their pins so they weren't identifiable in case the mob did break through.”

He was also ready to fight.

“I had a pen in my pocket that I could use as a weapon, I was looking for other weapons as well. And then I was coordinating with the Capitol police to try to find a way out to for us.”

White House press office was unaware of Trump's overnight statement promising "orderly transition"

From CNN's Jeremy Diamond

President Trump's statement overnight acknowledging that there will be an "orderly transition" was released on Twitter by the President's aide Dan Scavino without the knowledge of the White House press office, a White House official said.

Nearly six hours after Scavino posted the statement on Twitter, the White House has yet to release the statement on official White House letterhead. It has so far only been posted on Scavino's personal Twitter page.

White House press officials woke up Thursday morning to find out about the statement via the news, just like everyone else, the official said.

It remains unclear whether the White House will release the statement via official channels.

Twitter says Trump has deleted tweets needed to unlock account — but unclear when he'll be able to tweet again

From CNN’s Brian Fung

President Trump has removed the three tweets from his profile that prompted a temporary lock of his account on Wednesday, a Twitter spokesperson told CNN. The move clears the way for Trump to regain control of his tweeting privileges as early as today.

The official confirmation comes after Trump appeared to comply Wednesday evening with Twitter’s requirement that he delete the tweets or face a continued lock on his account.

Earlier on Wednesday, Twitter said Trump’s account would be placed in a temporary time out for policy violations, lasting for 12 hours from the moment he deleted the tweets. Twitter also threatened Trump with a permanent ban from the platform for further violations. No sitting president has ever been banned from Twitter.

Asked what time Trump will be able to tweet again, Twitter declined to comment.


I'm giving up for the night. Been posting news updates for hours.

Old newspaper reporter instincts kicked in and I felt compelled to keep DU updated. I hope the info was helpful for you all.

I profoundly hope nothing else evil happens tonight.

I wish they would find a way to muzzle this traitorous president and keep him out of trouble between now and January 20.

WUSA: 52 arrested, 4 dead, 14 DC police officers injured amid pro-Trump riots at the U.S. Capitol nt

Dozens of curfew-related arrests made in DC as police reinforcements flood into city

WASHINGTON (WJLA) – There have been more than 52 arrests Wednesday night, D.C. police say, as authorities patrol the city in the wake of a breach of the U.S. Capitol building.

According to the Metropolitan Police Department, 47 of those arrests are curfew related. The other arrests include weapons and ammunition charges.

Mayor Muriel Bowser put a 6 p.m. curfew in place after the unrest at the Capitol.


Washington Post: D.C. police removed crowds after Capitol police were overwhelmed

After the first group of protesters breached the Capitol on Wednesday, D.C. Metropolitan Police took over handling the removal of crowds from the U.S. Capitol grounds, according to two people familiar with the response.

Two District officials familiar with the deployment said D.C. police Inspector Robert Glover, who heads the special event branch in the department’s Homeland Security Bureau, took over coordinating the response from various agencies and directing staff and resources to execute the plan for their removal.

The Capitol police officers, overwhelmed by the crowds who broke into the Capitol building, took responsibility for leading lawmakers to safety and ejecting the relatively small groups of protesters who had gotten inside, the two people said. Once those protesters were forced outside, D.C. police oversaw their removal from the external stairs, porticos and balconies of the Capitol.

Very few people who breached the Capitol were arrested, and one law enforcement official said the reason was simply limited manpower. Officers didn’t have enough backup to take the time to arrest and detain those who had broken in to what lawmakers Wednesday called “The People’s House.”


CNN: 3 people died from medical emergencies near Capitol grounds during riots

3 people died from medical emergencies near Capitol grounds during riots

From CNN's Adrienne Winston

DC Police Chief Robert Contee announced this evening that three people died from medical emergencies during today’s insurrection at the Capitol.

Contee did not specify if these people were involved in any way with the overtaking of the Capitol building.

“One adult female and two adult males appear to have suffered from separate medical emergencies, which resulted in their deaths. Any loss of life in the District is tragic and our thoughts are with anyone impacted by their loss," he said.

DC Fire and Emergency Medical services transported people to area hospitals with injuries ranging from cardiac arrest to multiple fractures after falling from scaffolding on the West front of the Capitol building. However, city officials did not say whether any of these people are the ones now deceased.
