More hilarious than heinous. Are we really supposed to be outraged that a bunch of yahoos managed to bust through a police line and do some petty vandalism, with one of them being shot by a frightened cop who had probably never dealt with a riot before, only to be chased away after a few photos were taken of some idiot in a Viking helmet?

Joe Biden has been elected the president of the United States, the Congress has certified the Electoral College results, and President Trump, while rejecting the validity of the process, accepted that this will come to pass early Thursday morning.
Through his social media aide and longtime consigliere Daniel Scavino, Trump, whose long-favored account on Twitter was suspended on Wednesday, issued a statement. “Even though I totally disagree with the outcome of the election, and the facts bear me out, nevertheless there will be an orderly transition on January 20th,” the president said. “I have always said we would continue our fight to ensure that only legal votes were counted. While this represents the end of the greatest first term in presidential history, it’s only the beginning of our fight to Make America Great Again!”
