JOE BIDEN/PROTESTS/TERRORISM: “Yesterday was one of the darkest days in the history of our nation.

An unprecedented assault on our democracy. An assault on the citadel of liberty, the United States Capitol itself…

It was not protest. It was chaos. They weren’t protestors. Don’t dare call them protestors. They were rioters, a mob.

Insurrectionists. Domestic terrorists.

It’s that basic and that simple. And I wish we could say we couldn’t see it coming. But that isn’t true. We could.”
