  • Michael, I adamantly disagree with you regarding Cruz and Hawley. What do the people of the U.S and people like you (journalists) expect when an election is stolen from them (individually their vote)? You write like nothing has happened. Violence is not always the answer, however, when the American Revolution happened and we broke free of King George the Patriots were fighting for their freedom and their lives. Perhaps, just perhaps, that is how some of the Capitol Rioters feel. Also, have you investigated to see if the violence was perpetrated by Antifa? They were there, they love violence and it would be a perfect scenario for the Democrats. How about making a cartoon of Nancy Pelosi kicking (impeachment) our president while he is down, what about the pile on, Democrat and Republican that is happening in Washington on our President??? You have plenty of juicy issues to focus on why are you helping the Democrats?
    Cruz and Hawley will come out of this as heroes who were brave enough to support our president and our constitution and above all the American People.

    Why do so many journalist conveniently forget it is the vote that is at issue here?

    Respectfully and with Regards Adorable Deplorable, Alexis
