As chaos unfolds at the U.S. Capitol, images of the scene emerge

Over the last few hours, images have emerged of the chaotic and terrifying scene unfolding at the U.S Capitol as domestic terrorists in support of Donald Trump storm the building. A woman has been shot, people are in hiding, and Trump has yet to truly condemn the insanity save for a weak statement he issued moments ago on video in which he continued to maintain that the election was “stolen” and he won in a “landslide.”

Clearly, his words inflame his supporters as evidenced by the violence and destruction happening right now.
