Let's await UK Tory ministers and sycophants on Newsnight, and tomorrow on R4Today refusing unequivocal condemnation.

You're looking at the Vice President Mike Pence twitter page. The Mike Pence twitter page has Biden and Harris as a cover photo.

Yeah, and I'm seeing where some of those folks posted on social media that they were carrying guns into the building. But I'm also guessing the few that did had to sneak them in. So I guess what I'm asking is what people who oppose any gun control think would have been the result if they hadn't had to sneak them in- if there had been more than just a few furtively-armed protesters, if being armed had been the rule for the rioters rather than the exception, would the resolution have been as (relatively) peaceful? I think it would have been a bloodbath- outnumbered police seeing themselves surrounded and shoved around by protesters with guns might have gotten a tad nervous and itchy-fingered, and the thing would have mushroomed from there.

These are the things and events that happen when a sacred landslide election victory is so unceremoniously & viciously stripped away from great patriots who have been badly & unfairly treated for so long. Go home with love & in peace. Remember this day forever!

There are rumors that the head of the JCS had phone conversations today with Pelosi and McConnell directly, without Trump's involvment.

Twitter deleted Trump's last tweet, then froze his account for twelve hours.

Too little, too late, but better than nothing.

Ninja'd but still worth repeating.

Who was it the other day posting about the Georgia phone call (remember that ) and was wondering what Trump could do to top that before he left office.

Well it seems just when you are sure he can’t top his performance he pulls another rabbit out of the bag.

No one can say they aren’t throwing everything into this season’s last few episodes, OK they’ve totally left the realms of “reality” in reality TV but goodness what imaginations they have.

I can't recall another politician who has committed so many disasters to himself or his party in such a short time. The phone call, stumping for 2 Georgia politicians after condemning their colleagues, and then, being the Seditionist-in-Chief, urging the redhatted mob to go to the Capitol after placing a target on Pence - he's a busy man.

Since he's Twit-blocked for 12 hours I might even have to check out Fox & Friends tomorrow to see if he calls in. He's going to have to vent somewhere.

I imagine him pounding at his phone wondering what's wrong with the stupid thing, then throwing it across the room.

Pence has unfollowed Trump and put Biden-Harris as his banner on Twitter.
Apparently that is a false rumor.

From: Buzzfeed News
On Wednesday, a rumor started flying on social media that Vice President Mike Pence had unfollowed President Donald Trump on Twitter. But that is definitely false. Pence's personal account, @Mike_Pence, in fact only follows 48 people on Twitter, the first of which to be listed is Trump.

His twitter feed also has a linking to Trump's web site (not exactly the type of thin you would have if you had unfollowed someone)

This is the picture he currently has on his twitter feed. The picture is taken from the back (so I can't tell who exactly it is), but given the size of the crowd and the absence of masks, I doubt it is Biden/Harris.

We are hearing stories about Trump's behavior in the White House today, and it is scary, scary, stuff.
Man, I hope the Pentagon has orders to ignore all orders from the White House until confirmed by the JCS.

The only area where Trump has not lit a dumpster fire is foreign affairs...and I have a sick feeling an attack on Iran might be in the offing.
