So, Uhhh…There Was a Coup

January 6, 2021 started like any other morning. Breakfast, shower, work. Nothing at all out of the ordinary.

Until it happened.

The Invasion.

These weren’t invaders from a foreign country, but invaders consisting of traitors who were home-grown in the USA. I have many feelings about this insurrection and I still haven’t been able to process them all. However, I felt it was important for me to acknowledge what happened.

Below is a visual timeline of events from Now This:

NPR also has an extensive timeline of events covering the time before, during, and after the insurrection. Read it here.

One of the most important details from NPR is this:

Just before noon Trump begins to address the crowd at the Ellipse, behind the White House. He falsely claims that “this election was stolen from you, from me, from the country.”

Trump calls on his supporters at the rally to march on the U.S. Capitol, saying he will walk with them. Instead, he returns to the White House.

Needless to say, this day will go down in history as one of the most embarrassing days for the United States.
