With heightened security and pandemic precautions, the streets of Washington, DC were mostly empty on the day of Joe Biden’s inauguration. Despite vowing to once again storm the Capitol, Trump supporters were nowhere to be seen. We spoke to one man in a MAGA hat who traveled from New York for a rally that never happened.

  • If you have selfish ignorant citizens, your going to get selfish ignorant leaders, George Carlin....A killer kills for the thrill, the weapon he uses may vary, but is irrelevant, people with politics religion etc are the same way. Half the people scream no jobs, but Mexicans can come here and make damned good livings. Half the people want to rob the rich, yet if you took that same percentage daily from them they would kill you. Half the people just have been so used to getting their own way, they cant stand to be told no. The country is made up by the people, so is the government, so if the country sucks for either side, look in the mirror for the reason, THATS the only thing "you" can change.....

I think it’s so funny that he said trump campaign is to blame when he didn’t blame a single democrat or the way elections were run in those states for election integrity which is why the peaceful protest at the capitol happened in the first place. So blame the trump campaign, think Donald trump is finished forever, even though they have the strongest political party in the country, and on top of that follow trumps political beliefs on trump tv? For 4 years this guy clearly doesn’t know trump.
