11 days to inauguration

 Whew, we made it through another day of Trump as President. Anyone else disgusted to read yesterday that he was delighted and excited to see his supporters attack and trash the capital building, threaten members of Congress and kill a police officer?

On my little personal home front, I was delighted to spend time on Zoom with friends discussing books and great streaming shows. A neighbor who just started chemo was outside and said so far so good. She is still working although perhaps fewer hours than previously. Her hubby took early retirement to be home to care for her which is very sweet. This is the second time she has had chemo.

  1. Honesty, it didn't surprise me in the least that he was happy and excite to see the Capital overrun. The man is a total nut job. I'm scary for inauguration day. I wish they'd scale it WAY down and use the virus for an excuse if needed.

    1. I understand a lot of the inauguration will be virtual but Biden still plans to be inaugurated in front of the Capital. Theat was the scaffolding the rioters climbed.

  2. I am so shocked that every day something new comes out in the news. One thing I am glad about is they are slowly arresting those that were involved.

    God bless.

    1. Yes and I hope they get to the ringleaders and those who actually stormed the building and almost crushed an officer plus the ones who killed another and planted pipe bombs. So far except for the guy with the Molotov cocktails it has been low level charges.

  3. I still do not understand how intelligence agencies did not see the attack on the capitol coming. My heart goes out to the Bidens during the transition of power. I know there have been threats on their lives.

    1. I don’t know if they didn’t see the danger or if the political appointee leadership and/or the chief of the capital police didn’t act on them. We do know the capital police rejected offers of assistance made well in advance.

  4. I hope adding this link is ok- https://abcnews.go.com/US/months-ahead-capitol-riot-dhs-threat-assessment-group/story?id=75155673

    I believe tRump attempted coup d‘etat. Will he be held accountable? I sure hope so. The house will pass that he is impeached but the Senate is full of his trumpanzes.

  5. It's also now come out that the pentagon refused to arm the national guard or give them riot gear when the mayor requested them. As opposed to when they did that and stood on the Capitol steps this summer . I expect the Capitol police top brass have much to answer for but they are not the only ones here. Who would have though I would be grateful for a downsized covid style inauguration, safety wise. I'm glad they're arresting folks but the head of the snake is still out there. I hope they impeach Trump but wait till a few weeks afterwards so Biden can do his thing. I did not realize that impeachment conviction means you can never serve again so I'm now preferring that to the 25th. What a mess.
