But Robert Grimes, 54, of Cadillac says his son is not a supporter of President Donald Trump and should not be associated with those Trump supporters who stormed the U.S. Capitol building. His son keeps an eye on groups such as the Proud Boys and was there to protest the Trump faction, he said.
And then there’s this: DC Mayor Told Federal Law Enforcement To Stand Down Day Before Violent US Capitol Riot.
Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser told federal law enforcement to stand down just one day before a mob of Trump supporters breached the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday, smashing windows, entering the chambers, and forcing lawmakers and congressional staff inside into lockdown.
“To be clear, the District of Columbia is not requesting other federal law enforcement personnel and discourages any additional deployment without immediate notification to, and consultation with, MPD if such plans are underway,” Bowser wrote in a letter to acting U.S. Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen, acting Secretary of Defense Chris Miller, and Secretary of the Army Ryan D. McCarthy.

But possibly most interesting of all was this: Rasmussen: Trump’s Approval Rating Rises After DC Protests. Virtually no one on the PDT side of the fence is particularly angry about the reaction of those who are actually on his side, which is not necessarily made up of the entire contingent of those who entered the Capitol.
The Rasmussen poll, one of the most accurate polls of the 2020 election, finds President Trump’s approval is actually rising after Wednesday‘s protests. As Democrats move to impeachment and some establishment Republicans call for the 25th Amendment to remove Trump, the poll finds 48% approve of the President’s job performance.
Lots of media and the Deep State establishment sounding these supposed alarms, but if anyone has broken the democratic compact, they are the ones who have done it.
