If Trump supporters intentions was to “Make America Great Again” by busting out windows on Capitol Hill and ransacking Congress members offices then making spaghetti great again wouldn’t include noodles nor tomato sauce. The blatant disrespect that took place on Capitol Hill Monday was crystal clear despite the onlookers political view. With former first lady Michelle Obama being the latest person to speak out against the criminal invasion that transpired and the “painful” hypocritical response to it.
“All I know is that now is a time for true patriotism. Now is the time for those who voted for this president to see the reality of what they’ve supported–and publicly and forcefully rebuke him and the actions of that mob.” She went on to say the invasion “left me with so many questions—questions about the future, questions about security, extremism, propaganda and more. But there’s one question I just can’t shake: What if these rioters had looked like the folks who go to Ebenezer Baptist Church every Sunday? What would of been different? We saw peaceful protestors met with brutal force. We saw cracked skulls and mass arrests, law enforcement pepper spraying it’s way through a peaceful demonstration for a presidential photo op.. Seeing the gulf between the responses to yesterday’s riot and this summer’s peaceful protests and the larger movement for social justice is so painful it hurts.”
President Elect-Joe Biden also sounded off on the stark contrast between how Black Lives Matter protestors were savagely handled in comparison to Trump supporters who invaded Capitol Hill. “You can’t tell me that if it had been a group of Black Lives Matter protestors yesterday they wouldn’t have been treated very differently than the mob of thugs that stormed the Capitol. We all know that is true and it is totally unacceptable. Totally unacceptable, the American people saw it in plain view.”
Obama concluded with a optimistic message saying “I pray that every American, especially those who disagree with them, will give our new Congress, President-Elect Biden and Vice President-Elect Harris the chance to lead us in a better direction.”
