On Wednesday, January 6, 2021, the ugly face of fascism in action was seen in Washington D.C., when an unruly pro-Trump mob, incited and inflamed by an angry speech by outgoing President Donald Trump, stormed and rampaged through the U.S. Capitol, in an obvious attempted coup.

This marked the lowest point in Mr. Trump’s chaotic presidency, a presidency ending with an attempt to stoke the fires of insurrection in the vain hope of remaining in power..

The biggest folly of all is to enter politics when one is inexperienced and incompetent. But the list of Trump's ineptitudes is very long and we tend to forget previous ones as the next one hits the headlines..

The article charges Trump with "willfully inciting violence against the government of the United States" with his comments at the rally outside the White House that it says "encouraged and foreseeably resulted in - imminent lawless action at the Capitol".. #Report - 'for the most serious impeachment charge in history: inciting an insurrection that left five dead as part of a plot to keep him in power by forcing Congress to overturn the results of an election he lost'. #TheSiege. #TheCarnage.

I just wonder what took so long to get this clown (being nice) out

of office. I guess this is what happens when you put party loyalty

over ethics.

Yes, 'what took so long'? - for Trump's first two years in office (2017-2018) he had Paul Ryan (R-WI) Speaker of the House and Mitch McConnell (R-KY) Majority Leader in the Senate. For those two, Trump could 'do no wrong'. For Trump's last two years in office (2019-2020) Trump had McCarthy (R-CA) Minority Leader in the House and McConnell (R-KY) Majority Leader in the Senate - again, for those two Trump could 'do no wrong'. In 2020, Pelosi (D-CA) Speaker of the House had failed to hold more impeachment inquiries and hearings on Trump, as she apparently 'deliberately', 'ran out the clock' to the November 3 election. Trump thereby had become effectively 'invincible on his watch', as both the Republicans and the Democrats in congress 'let it happen that way'. McConnell - "I'm The Grim Reaper When It Comes To The Dems Agenda".

"Trump is not fit to remain as president for his final week. He has proven to be unstable, erratic, cruel, and dangerous - an accomplice to mass murder". #CriminalCharge.
