Angry man Kieth Olbermann sums up the last 2 days.

THIS WAS DONALD TRUMP’S 9/11 ATTACK ON AMERICA.

You and I have known something like this was coming.

We have tried to tell the politicians enabling it, ignoring it, exploiting it, that they were playing with fire.

Now they’ve all been burned.

It goes without saying Trump must be removed from office immediately. And all those who entered the Capitol must be arrested and charged with what they attempted to do: violently overthrow the government of the United States.

And, the House and Senate must reconvene to certify Joe Biden’s Electoral College vote as soon as possible. Because THAT, not this nightmare today, is the true test of whether democracy will continue in America.

Despite a domestic terrorist attack on the Capitol, Joe Biden’s Electoral College victory was finally certified by the House and Senate at 3:41 AM Eastern Standard Time, this morning.

And despite the same domestic terrorist attack, 121 Republican members of the the House and six Republican Senators still voted to give the terrorists exactly what they wanted – votes to overturn a valid election.

You and I have known something like this was coming.

We have tried to tell the politicians enabling it, ignoring it, exploiting it, that they were playing with fire.

Now they’ve all been burned.

It goes without saying Trump must be removed from office immediately. And all those who entered the Capitol must be arrested and charged with what they attempted to do: violently overthrow the government of the United States.

The democracy will survive and those who tried the coup will be punished. Now it remains to address the terrorist collaborators inside the Republican coalition in the House.

THERE WAS NO ‘NEW TONE.’ HIS TERRORISTS WILL NOTICE ONLY THE MISSING WORDS.

Trump’s return from Twitter Prison may have included a peck of platitudes somebody else shoved into the teleprompter, and a reference to a “new administration” coming into office January 20. It may even have referred to an “orderly and seamless transition of power.”

It did NOT, however, refer to a PEACEFUL transition of power, and it never mentioned Joe Biden by name. And given the opaque way he communicates with his conspiracy theory addicted, brain-addled followers, these omissions were no accident. He was giving them exactly the kind of “hidden signal” that will allow them to ignore everything else, and conclude he was, like Wednesday at the Capitol, sending his stormtroopers off to attack the government again – during the inauguration.

There are no other actions left. The House must impeach him – again – immediately, if only to tie up the White House from further mayhem in this country’s most dangerous stretch of thirteen days since the Cuban Missile Crisis.
