    send the bill directly to Trump (though we all know he won’t pay it, as is his habit). His rhetoric and baseless conspiracy mongering were the direct cause of this. THIS is his legacy.

    Where are all the op-eds and bleating in the Trumpist media about property damage after a riot?

    And who can forget this gem from Charlie Kirk?

    “Hey liberals, do you notice that when conservatives lose races and we don’t riot, scream, smash windows, burn cars, assault people or need days off of work?
    It’s amazing how mature and civil conservatives are.
    Please remember this and take notes when we get Trump re-elected in 2020.”

    Yeah, cool story, bro.

      The businesses that boarded up prior to November 3rd were not worried about a Biden win. They were worried about the violence that would follow a Trump win. Everyone with a brain knows that and the facts show they had nothing to worry about if Biden won. It was the Left they were rightly afraid of.

      Now, a few hundred idiots prompted by dumb comments by Trump on a single day are supposed to equate to months of violence in multiple cities where THOUSANDS of small businesses were destroyed, many owned by minorities.

      Got it.

        “Everyone with a brain knows that and the facts show they had nothing to worry about if Biden won”

        Yup. Everyone knew there’s nothing to worry about with a Biden win. That’s why nobody stormed the Capitol trying to stop the legal counting certified electoral college votes with guns, bullet proof vests and fire extinguishers that killed a cop.

        Please tell your Congressmen they were overreacting by hiding from the usurpers who attacked the Capitol. Didn’t they know they had nothing to worry about?

    Who is paying for the ‘protest’ damage done this summer across this land?

      it’s pretty entertaining to see all the “Whataboutism” instead of the actual condemnation of the conspiracy nuts who perpetuated these disgusting crimes at the will of Dear Leader. “They were infiltrated by Antifa and BLM!” Even the QAnon guy dressed up life a buffalo is now having to swear up and down that he’s actually a Q supporter because he’s being accused of being Antifa BY HIS OWN SUPPORTERS!

      Trump needs to either resign or be removed ASAP for the good of our country. He has been a disgrace to the office and the Republican party.

        Wait, WHAT? You mean confrontation and violence advocated by Democrats like Maxine Waters and Tim Kaine and Kamala Harris (“riots will not stop and should not stop”) is somehow not okay to talk about?

        Should Kamala Harris resign or be removed from office? And how is applying the same standard to ALL politicians “whataboutism”?

          Just because you put something in quotes doesn’t mean they actually said it. I challenge you to find the full quote where Kamala said she was pro-riots. All I could find was

          “It’s no wonder people are taking to the streets and I support them. We must always defend peaceful protest and peaceful protestors. We should not confuse them with those looting and committing acts of violence, including the shooter who was arrested for murder. And make no mistake, we will not let these vigilantes and extremists derail the path to justice.”
