Video: Trump Protesters Clash With Police, Storm US Capitol

This is a developing story. For details, we invite you to follow this report from The Associated Press.

Original story follows:

Supporters of President Donald Trump are protesting in Washington DC Wednesday and have clashed with police, storming the United States Capitol on the day that Congress was set to ratify the electoral college’s vote to elect Joe Biden as president.

“Protesters tore down metal barricades at the bottom of the Capitol’s steps and were met by officers in riot gear,” the AP reports. “Some tried to push past the officers who held shields and officers could be seen firing pepper spray into the crowd to keep them back. Some in the crowd were shouting “traitors” as officers tried to keep them back.”

Vice President Mike Pence was “swiftly” ushered out of the Senate chambers, according to Politico.

OutKick unequivocally condemns violent protests.

  1. Lefties demonstrated this summer that violence works. You don’t have to shelter-in-place, socially distance, wear masks, or even “peacefully” protest to get what you want. Nor do you have to concern yourself with being charged with anything, as long as in you’re in pursuit of ideological demands. It helps to have Soros appointed AG’s in the cities.

  2. I have mixed feelings on this. The macroview is what the hell did they expect? We know Trump won the election. One stat proves it. They want us to believe Biden got more black votes than Obama did in ’08. His Hope and Change election. Stop and think about that stat for a minute. That’s what they’re telling us. Moving on..

    I watched Trump on TV for 30 years. I grew up watching a billionaire playboy with dimes on his arms. Saw him idolized by every rapper/athlete/celebrity for 30 years. But then he ran for president as a Republican. That’s when the curtain was pulled back. We’ve watch an attempted coup by 90% of D.C. (R & D both. I have no use for any of em minus a few). We spent years being told he was a Russian spy, until he wasn’t. They impeached him for asking questions about Joe Biden’s bragging of strong arming Ukraine for his son (ON VIDEO!). We’ve spent 4 years watching no one do anything about the CIA, FBI, NSA leaking, lying, hiding, fabricating, spying, on Trump and his administration. We’ve watch tech billionaires openly say they won’t allow Trump to win. We’ve watched censorship of legitimate news of Hunter Biden and family corruption. The sheer magnitude of what we’ve seen and been through the last 4 years is head spinning.

    With all of that, we watched Trump get 75 million votes. I saw Trump doing 3 rallies a day with 50,000 people at them. Biden couldn’t fill a parking lot. But I’m supposed to believe he received more votes than any candidate is US history? And we haven’t even touched on where those 80 million votes came from. We know where they came (manufactured) from. I saw the suitcases being brought from under the tables in Georgia. I saw the late night all Biden vote spikes.

    You don’t have to be a conspiracy theorist to realize something is broken. Are we supposed to stay quiet and hope we can come out the next election and outvote the steal in a wave? That’s what we did this time. 75 million of us. No matter how many vote in the future, no matter how large our numbers, when you can manufacture the votes you need……..

    This isn’t Trump’s fight actually. It’s America’s. I don’t think there will be a civil war per se. Because I don’t blame a single Democrat voter. 4 years ago I wouldn’t have thought twice about watching CNN, ABC, etc. People are creatures of habit and they’ve been told for 4 years Trump is Hitler. Not their fault. It’s not D vs. R anyway. It’s American vs. government power.(and when I say government, that’s all inclusive since the MSM and Washington are the same). Again. As it always is, and always will be. And I haven’t even touched on the reckoning coming over Covid lockdowns.

    Someone once said something about watering the Tree of Liberty…..

    • This comment is well written and much better than screen grabs from Twitter from blue checkmarks who keep saying we are being invaded. Of course you have a few hooligans who took it too far, but please don’t discount the 100’s of thousands of people who showed up to say they are not ok with absolute power and disrespecting the POTUS on tv by tearing up the State of the Union speech.
      The government should fear the people to an extent, all while everyone obeys the laws (even congress). How many of us have been vaccinated vs congress members, they honestly want us to believe they impact our daily lives by running the government, lining their pockets and doing interviews on CNN and MSNBC.
      I hope this site and Clay in particular understands that people are frustrated all around and not to demonize an entire base because a few people didn’t respect rules and laws (especially when they saw it receive hero status all year-(people steal a new TV because they are hungry ;)).

    • My friend, you so nailed the whole picture here. I will always keep a screen shot of the poll results of those “battleground” states once the polling booths closed down, and will NEVER believe that by the next morning by an ultimate once-in-a-million lifetime those overwhelming Trump leads had vanished.

  3. Well gee wish the police would have moved so fast during all these summer riots looting and burning and taking over parts of the city for months. I wonder if these people doing this are really Trump supporters or dem plants anything possible this crazy year.

  4. First off today’s events I don’t support…just like I haven’t supported these types of things since Ferguson, LA riots, or any riot in general.

    I don’t know if it was actual Trump supporters, antifa posing as Trump supporters, or some globalist backing agenda as a means to remove Trump and install China…all I know is the revolutionary spirit is continuing unabated in the US fueled by Big Tech, the media sycophants and our politicians. It’s definitely not the answer to the problem…but it’s what’s being well funded at the moment.

  5. I cannot speak to the bonafides of the photos, but those attacking police and inciting violence appear to be known ANTIFA terrorists, wearing trump garb. For a week, commentators had warned that this would happen.

  6. The Dems could not have scripted a better end to the Trump presidency. “See, we told you he was Hitler all along”.

    Well done Gentleman, now fuck off back to your holes and never come out again. You have ruined at least the immediate future of hard working American’s who believe in Judeo Christian/American values. Quite possibly handed the 2024 election to the Swamp as well.

    • Are you kidding me? They are protesting the very system that let them down, a system that has been pissing on their heads for decades. Trump was a temporary umbrella. The real criminals are sitting in that Capitol building NOT doing the bidding of the American people. THEY are the people who handed the swamp its victory today and will be complicit in 2024 unless THEY change their tactics, including learning how to fight. Thinking you can kick the can down the road and wait this out until we all file like lemmings to the ballot box in 2024 (!) is foolish. Study history and see what comes next in a one-party government that controls the media and education, with firearm confiscation looming. The game has changed and it’s been rigged. Enjoy the crumbs from the Left while our “side” figures out what comes next.

  7. I question in part the first five words from this author: Supporters of President Donald Trump. In part because without a doubt Trump supporters breached the capitol and it is WRONG and they should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. How about the entry of some non-supporters, as in Antifa, and were they in the actual majority wearing tricked up Viking costumes and such? I would at least have a more partial author than someone if I recall reading from posts of his other articles is a sworn Democrat. At the least, let’s wait and find out who these law-breakers actually were.
