1/12/21--- What are your thoughts, questions about the storming of the Capitol and what should Congress do about the current situation?
1/12/2021 06:20:06 am
I feel like there isn't much the government can do besides bring military personel to defend the building.
1/12/2021 06:29:58 am
I don't think the goverment can do much besides having to bring the military to protect the building
1/12/2021 06:34:19 am
I don't really know because i don't really care about what happened it did no really effect me.I guess the most they can do is bring the military to protect the building
1/12/2021 06:51:21 am
I don't agree with Trump's decision to encourage this type of behavior at the Capitol because of the chaos and danger that it started.
1/12/2021 07:04:57 am
My thoughts on this situation is feeling angry and disappointed. I feel angry because if those were black people, they would have been shot, gassed on sight and on a peaceful protest there was a whole army there was protecting the capitol. In addition, those people think since they're white they can walk in there and do anything they want because they think that they're better and made this country when they're completely wrong. Furthermore, I feel disappointed in our country because those Trump supporters should not have just walked in there freely rioting and tearing up everything and having people feel scared.
1/12/2021 07:26:36 am
I think that President Trump's decision to encourage this kind of behavior and action is unacceptable. He called his supporters patriotic for storming the capitol but when black people or people of color are protesting peacefully he calls it riots. It really shows that if he really becomes president it'll be a mess because he doesn't make fair decisions and is a racist. I think Congress should try to clean up the situation and to tighten up security or give Trump some kind of warning or penalty for what he did.
1/12/2021 07:30:13 am
what trump did to make those people do what they did is very childish he makes us look like trash
1/12/2021 07:36:27 am
should try to make the situation better and put trump in his place
1/12/2021 07:57:06 am
I think Trump must go to jail for encouraging a mob
1/12/2021 08:00:02 am
It is very unconstitutional, illogical, and is just nonsense. I wouldn't really care if the people in the mob during the storm was shot, since to storm a capitol is to ask for the death penalty.

I think that they should bring military force to protect the government or some sort of protection force.
1/12/2021 08:01:51 am
It's quite a waste of time if i have to be honest. People are getting hurt for a riot that won't change anything. What's even worse if that our current president support this action even though many people are getting hurt and he's also distracting people from their jobs in the capitol. He should honestly be impeached. Such immaturity can't be running the country especially at this time.
1/12/2021 08:06:29 am
I think that it was ridiculous. As president you are entrusted with the country and has great responsibility. But to get people to attack a building of your country was very irresponsible and childish.
1/12/2021 08:07:31 am
I think it is odd that a person brought the confederate flag into the capitol. It feels odd and for some reason a very tiny tiny bit funny. What I think congress should do about the current situation is I guess learn from it and know what to do the next time something like this happens.
1/12/2021 08:07:31 am
The black people are being oppressed because when the white people did the same protesting way, they didn’t get criticized that much. When the black people did it, they were said and were pointed out. The treatment and attitude is a big difference between the people with different race.
1/12/2021 08:14:51 am
I think that the fact that trump is making his supporter do such a thing is unacceptable and the government cant do much cause they cant really hurt them and if they do things might start so all they can really do is to defends and to scare them off.
1/12/2021 08:38:29 am
I don’t really know how I feel about the situation, but I think the government should work on protecting themselves from the riots.
1/12/2021 08:40:01 am
My thoughts about the Capitol be stormed is that the former president has no idea how to be a president at all the only thing he knows about being a president is having supporters that basically follow him till the end of the line and that it is disrespectful to attack the Capitol because it hurts every American if you do that. In my conclusion what Congress could do is to not make him a president at all and should use his money he has to fix the damage that is done on the Capitol and to stop being selfish.
1/12/2021 09:05:22 am
I don’t really know how I feel about the situation. I don't really care, but they should protect the Capitol and it seems unfair to the black lives. the police didn't hurt the people, but they let the whites do whatever they want.

My thoughts about the storming of the Capitol is that Trump is very irresponsible for his supporters and his own country Capitol. His crazy decision on gathering his supporters to attack his own country Capitol had caused damage to both the Capitol and the people and some of his supporters even lose their life. I think the Congress should strengthen the protection perhaps increase the amount of police.
1/12/2021 09:24:26 am
I think the storming of the Capitol was a mess. I find it shocking that there are people who can't accept the fact there is a new president, and decided to storm the Capitol like they did. What happened happened. Get over it.
1/12/2021 09:51:29 am
I think they should impeach President Trump because this is not okay to just let go of. If he is not impeached, we are basically saying that what Trump did was ok and its not. This type of behavior just because he lost is so childish and many people could have gotten hurt. There were some people storming the capitol with things such as special handcuffs, and dressed in full military/police gear.
1/12/2021 10:10:13 am
I'm really frustrated that Trump would think that he could say anything without consequences. Things were already bad when the pandemic hit, and yet he still doesn't understand how impactful words can be?
1/12/2021 10:12:58 am
I believe that what happened at the Capitol is going to be a stain on the U.S. The storming of the Capitol is going to stay with this county forever whether we like it or not. Other countries that are not a democracy will look at this and say "This is what will happen if you have a democracy." and those who have a democracy will be mortified by what happened. I also find it to make no sense. BLM protests were peaceful but they were shot at with rubber bullets and tear gas was used whereas here, a riot happened and no one bothered to do much. I believe that the president should be impeached to tell others that this is not acceptable. However, at the same time, it may spark more riots from Trump Supporters around the nation
1/12/2021 10:21:30 am
I think the raid on the capitol will really hurt the U.S' reputation since people will think that the president told them to do this. This can be a lesson to Trump, and everyone else since words can be powerful and can cause lots of damage. Furthermore, from this event, I think history is repeating itself since many events like this had happened in the past.
1/12/2021 10:29:41 am
I think this invasion of the Capitol was very childish. Also,very hypocritical, many defending the invaders but criticizing the BLM protests. I don't know what else Congress would have to do except increase security and hold the invaders responsible for their actions. It's crazy how fast this died down on certain news stations, but let's say BLM did the same thing, how stuck on this topic they would be.
1/12/2021 11:02:08 am
I feel like the trump supporters storming the capital building and getting away with it is an example of white privilege. I think that the police should have done more to stop the invasion because the police didn't really do anything to stop the rioters and some police even took pictures with the rioters.
1/12/2021 11:05:34 am
I think the storming at the Capitol was ridiculous. Having hundreds of supporters riot while there is a pandemic going on plus the fact that there are big chances of them getting infected while being surrounded by hundreds of other people are unbelievable. I wonder what in the world is Trump thinking, especially since he wants run for a second time but encouraging supporters of his to do a childish thing and leading some of them to their deaths through the riot. The Congress should put up extra security since Biden is about to head towards the President seat and it may cause another riot from the Trump supporters. The Congress should also keep an eye on Trump because of how he isn't really willing to step down and make him clean up all the mess he made during his 4 years in office.
1/12/2021 11:06:07 am
I think this storming on the capital was very childish of Trump. He was very irresponsible to allow his supporters to attack the capital, we are already dealing with the pandemic and for him to encourage his supporter’s behaviors at a time like this is dangerous. I don’t know what the Congress can really do but hold the people responsible for what they have done and increase security.
1/12/2021 11:13:47 am
I think the storming of the Capitol was horrible. It was not a peaceful protest it caused chaos in the capitol and a woman even died because of this. People lives were in danger.
1/12/2021 11:51:40 am
I don’t think the government/congress can really do much more at this point, other than having the military defend it. I do think that this riot was ridiculous, especially with an ongoing pandemic. The large amount of people at the riot immediately ensured no way of practicing social distancing or safety measures.
1/12/2021 11:51:59 am
I think that these trump supporters need to be put in their place because this is not fair to anyone.If this is not white privilege than I don't know what is.If this was people of color they wouldn't even be able to make it to the front of the building without police making a problem.It is very upsetting that BLM protest were treated with so much harm and danger,while these trump supporters are getting into the building without the police doing anything.
1/12/2021 11:58:53 am
I think that the capitol situation is dangerous and got way out of hand. I also think that it was very childish that Trump was encouraging this type of behavior. It's upsetting that this went on for this long because if black people even try to have a peaceful protest then they get shot right away.
1/12/2021 01:05:31 pm
I think this trump supportes that just stormed the capital are just babies. Just because they don't get there way they basically throw a whole tatrum. It is annoying seeing how nothing happened to the protesters but at BLM protest people got shot, I mean the privilege these people have and they don't understand that. I think the capital should impeach trump or get rid of the 25th amendment because we need him out as soon as possible he has already caused so many problems we need Trump gone.
1/12/2021 02:34:36 pm
First of all I'm am really disappointed to Donald Trump. Being a formal president he should have first of all, Took great control of the pandemic when he was the president(Failed) and second of all don't turn the country into a worst place(Also Failed). But it's unlucky that Donald trump took it to the next level and attacked his own congress just because he lost the election. Congress should not do anything because there's also 8 days left until he gets out of office. Actions such as impeachment will take too long. Donald Trump gets out of office on 1/20/2021.
1/12/2021 05:43:20 pm
I think that it is just absurd and ridiculous that this is actually happening. Trump is encouraging people to go into other people's private property and form a riot because they weren't happy about the results, I think that they need to grow up and learn how to accept things. Personally I'm just confused on why Trump allowed this to happen, he literally caused chaos, and he isn't doing anything to stop it instead he is encouraging it to happen?
1/12/2021 06:41:51 pm
My thoughts on the storming of the Capitol is that it was a very immature behavior by the trump supporters. With the whole pandemic situation going on, this causes more chaos on top of what has been going on with all the news. As a public figure, and still technically an in office president, Donald trump really shouldn’t encourage this type of behavior, and negatively impacting the whole country. There should be more protection added as well to the Capitol, and to the people at work there.
1/12/2021 08:32:01 pm
I felt that the president's behavior was extremely unacceptable and unconstitutional when he deliberately allowed his supporters to attack the Capitol when the representatives were having a meeting that officially finalizes the votes from the 2020 presidential election and declares the US president. Inaugurations in the past displayed a peaceful transition between the previous president and the president that is sworn into office. On the other hand, this president's mere intention is to create war instead of allowing the inauguration process to go peacefully just because he lost the presidential election. His behavior to me is evidently childish and unacceptable. I think that Congress should monitor the commotion going on around that area by sending security guards to carefully guard the Capitol while there's activity taking place inside.
1/13/2021 07:27:16 am
I think the whole event was really idiotic, it didn't really have a purpose for the whole storming and everything. Just because they didn't get the result they hoped for, they didn't have to go all crazy and raid the whole place, it's just incredibly dumb. The congress can barely do anything and just send out protection but even if they do, it would create another riot because people would think it's unfair.
1/13/2021 07:41:59 am
The situation at the capitol was very out of hand however there wasn't much that the government could do. The situation didn't have to be that outrageous and the protesters didn't have to storm into the capital building. Conversely, the government couldn't really defend the capital because they couldn't send the military there to stop the protesters.
1/13/2021 08:03:24 am
I think the storming the capitol situation was idiotic and immature because many people are in risk of covid-19. In addition, many people were tear gassed and shot during the peaceful protest, however when people were storming the capitol, they didn't really try to defend themselves
1/13/2021 08:31:28 am
My thoughts about the storming of the Capitol is that it was very unhuman and not what America stands for because the rioters hurt police officers and beat them. I think that this is not what America stands for and people should be charged.
1/13/2021 10:39:46 am
I think that this is kind of dumb, storming the Capitol isn't exactly going to solve every problem.
1/13/2021 11:09:04 am
I think the storming at the capitol was very uncalled for. The fact that all these people are meeting up in the middle of a pandemic, with no precautions, and with weapons too? It's mind boggling how they can get away with breaking into a government building and coming in contact with confidential information. In addition, this was a case of domestic terrorism not protesting. Protesting is peaceful, what happened at the capitol was not peaceful. I think Donald Trump is being super irresponsible with how he is encouraging this behavior. It isn't even about the election anymore, people's lives are in danger.
1/13/2021 11:22:38 am
I don't think it was a good idea because a they were expose to the virus and many of them did not have mask on. Also some people died and it was dangerous.
1/13/2021 12:48:20 pm
I'm very annoyed at the people who stormed the Capitol. It was incredibly dangerous. Many people probably got COVID. Moreover, they brough the Confederate flag inside the Capitol and killed peopl too. If the protesters wanted to protest, they should've worn masks and protest peacefully. I think the way Donald Trump is handling the situation is incredibly irresponsible.
1/13/2021 12:49:49 pm
I think what Trump did was very irresponsilbe,childish and is blatantly bad. This was a very dissapointing thing that he did and I think that he should be punished for it. I think that Congress should be a tad bit lenient but should still punish people that are doing "unethical" things like bringing a confederate flag into the Capitol
1/13/2021 05:23:47 pm
I think the congress should bring more military to protect the capital.
1/14/2021 05:31:58 am
I think the storming of the Capitol was horrible. It was not a peaceful protest it caused chaos in the capitol and a woman even died because of this. People lives were in danger.
1/14/2021 06:18:46 am
i think what they have done the protect the capital did nothing. people are saying that if a black group was to go to the capital they would have shot the black person but not the white people
1/14/2021 06:39:45 am
I’m very disappointed about what happened at the capital , trump inciting a riot was irresponsible and dumb, they should’ve had more protection and security over the capital.
1/14/2021 06:58:47 am
I think what the rioters did at the capital was very immature because based on the videos nobody was wearing a mask even in this pandemic which would cause more cases of COVID-19. Trump was also very irresponsible for inciting a riot to the capital just because he lost the election. The Capital was very weak in security which allowed the rioters to get in easily so i think they should've been more prepared instead of going easy on the rioters.
1/14/2021 07:55:31 am
i think what happened at the capital was horrible. it was not okay. a peaceful protest is okay but once they started breaking in, thats where it get out of hand. this is not the way to make things better. we need justice but not like this. they should've definitely had more protection around of the capital. if it were black people, many blacks would have been shot and killed. this is an example of white privilege many police officers just stood there and watched them break in. trump is really irresponsible.
1/14/2021 07:55:54 am
I have no idea on what happened
1/14/2021 08:27:34 am
why is such a big figure doing something like this? It feels so childish for someone so old and being such a big figure to do this type of stuff its just so childish
1/14/2021 10:27:30 am
Trump has made himself seem like a madman in my eyes. However I am very confused why someone at that age would do something this embarrassing.
1/14/2021 10:37:51 am
I think that congress shouldn’t do much beside up security but, don’t have the security attack back because the rioters can use that assault against the US and that could bring mare problem to the US
1/14/2021 11:12:13 am
I feel like it was kinda stupid and childish for trump to decided to called his/her supporter to storm inside the capitol. There is nothing really much the congress could do but to have a higher security and backup.
1/14/2021 11:28:07 am
The situation at capitol is I think it's very childish and irresponsible because even though he didn't win the election this year but he still got to be the president for 4 years. As the president of the U.S, he shouldn't have do that during the pandemic. Instead, he should do what he can to make the country better in his last few day of being a president. For the Congress, they should strengthen the protection like what other students but they should always strengthen the protection when important events are happening.
1/14/2021 03:38:56 pm
It is hard to do anything in this situation. Any decision could be taken harshly. It is just sad that people have to resort to violence.
1/14/2021 07:03:00 pm
I think that storming the capitol is unnecessary because rioting wouldn't change anything.
1/15/2021 05:22:46 am
I think that they should add more military protection because this might even happen again.
1/15/2021 05:29:42 am
I think the storming of the capitol is very idiotic because there are so many people in one place and are all at a high risk of covid-19. In addition, a peaceful protest became very dangerous and there were shots and people getting tear gassed.
1/15/2021 05:51:12 am
I don't really know a lot about what's going on, but I think storming the capitol wasn't the best decision because it didn't solve anything. In addition, it probably caused more cases of covid-19.
1/15/2021 12:51:33 pm
I think the storming of the capital was very immature, it caused chaos and problems for people, and trump was supporting this type of childish behavior which is very irresponsible.
1/15/2021 02:18:16 pm
I believe that it was a terrible and disgraceful thing but i also believe that it needed to happen in order for the people in the house senate to wake up and realize that they need to actually start doing something to stop it because our president did not deal with it as he should and it was at that point down to them to use their power to stop something like this from happening in the future by whatever means they may.
1/15/2021 04:30:48 pm
I think it’s ridiculous as a president to encourage people to do this kind of thing.
1/15/2021 04:47:30 pm
I think it's quite interesting what people will do if they don't accept their defeat. Donald Trump gathered his supporters to storm the capital just because he wouldn't admit that he lost to Joe Biden in the election. His childish decision caused more harm to the country and got himself impeached from office.
1/15/2021 06:07:55 pm
I think it's quite interesting what people will do just because you don't like a person
1/15/2021 07:48:32 pm
I feel like the riots are a bit childish. Especially Trump since he should know better, yet he still supported it.
1/16/2021 02:02:14 pm
I think it the riots have no use to it and everything is like not cool and it is very childish
Xiang Fei Xu
1/19/2021 08:05:01 am
Why are they doing it
1/19/2021 09:32:50 pm
I think that the riots at the capital were extremely out of hand. Violence is never the answer, and if they were going to protest they should have done it peacefully and in a safe way during times like these. I do wonder what was going on in the sense of security. I would assume they would have a lot of it since it is a government building, so why would they let the people simply walk through?
1/25/2021 06:41:17 am
The capitol should've definitely took control of the situation more effectively and immediately. The situation got out of hand and was completely just wrong. This shouldn't have even become a problem, but apparently the capitol didn't have any guards or military personal on ground to support or even just calm the situation.
1/31/2021 01:13:12 pm
The attack on Capitol was outrageous and they should have been more prepared for it.
2/1/2021 07:01:35 am
The attack was bad and people should not do that even if you wanna have your thoughts or voice heard because at the end your just makings a mess. The congress should talk this through and think of a good way to deal with those people. I don’t know how, but just think of a way.

The whole thing was kinda Stupid and at some point it got me thinking WHY did they waste there time.All they wanted to do is switch votes so cheeto man trump can be president. Too bad biden won.
2/3/2021 04:40:12 pm
The whole thing was a bad idea from the start and a lot of people could get hurt.
