January 6, 2021 will go down as one of the darkest days in U.S. history, as thousands of pro-Trump protesters stormed the Capitol building, egged on by their lord and savior, Donald Trump.
As NPR reports:
As you’d expect, Donald Trump posted a mealy-mouthed tweet hours after the riots began by his supporters:
That’s bad enough, but it’s not nearly as bad as what his daughter — who just so happens to be a senior White House adviser — had to say to the thugs who attempted a coup Wednesday afternoon.
Ivanka Trump called the rioters “American Patriots,” later realized she had made a huge mistake, and deleted her tweet. But the internet is forever, and so her tweet will live in infamy:
Ivanka and her father have set off this orgy of lawlessness, but now they want the un-American traitors who are acting on their behalf to be peaceful. That genie does not go back into the bottle so easily.
And how are these people “patriots”? Patriots don’t behave in such a way.
Ivanka got an earful from others in Twitter:
Exactly! Fuck the Trumps. And while we’re at it, arrest them, charge them, try them, and if they’re found guilty, put them away for the rest of their lives.
