I kind of feel sorry for the lone pro-Trump protester outside Twitter's headquarters (link), outnumbered two to one by anti-Trump demonstrators and the three of them being outnumbered ten to one by some rather relieved and possibly bored police.
(And I love the careful placing of the mic stand in the top picture.)

Oh well Trump will be going to bed in a little while as the very last time as Potus or IQ45 as some have coined.
Looks like Mike Pence and Mitch McConnell will not be attending his send off from USAF Andrews, this maybe the beginning of the end before he gets impeached. As they say be nice to the people on the way up, you sure as hell meet them on the way down.
Maybe the many people he has pardoned will hold his back, good to see he is flooding the swamp.
Trump announces he's going to build an extremely expensive Wall. A fundraiser is set up to pay for it and raises $millions. Huge amounts of that money go missing; Trump's strategist Steve Bannon is implicated. Trump issues a pardon to Steve Bannon before the trial has even started.
Trump fans: "Nope, nothing remotely suspicious going on there."
It's been disturbing and depressing to see how much damage Trump has caused, not just to his country and the world but also to the individuals who felt special because his words spoke to them in a way no other politician's had, and it's only now that they're starting to realise that it's all been a lie right from the very start. The smartest ones are, anyway. Some are still desperately trying to weave today's events into the narrative so they can carry on believing in The Plan. Their time will come. It will. It must.
Some of the stories beggar belief. A man saying how he's cut himself off from his mother because she's convinced that, as a Democrat, he's going to sell his children to paedophiles. Someone threatening to shoot his children because he thinks they're going to turn him in to the FBI for invading the Capitol. The many thousands of people who genuinely believed that they were fighting for the future of the country against oppressors who had stolen the election and only now realise they're facing real charges for real crimes that could mean real prison sentences, with their God-Hero handing out pardons to his mates but not for them.
One of the Capitol attackers committed suicide a couple of days ago.
It's a shame Trump is too old to spend enough years in prison for what he's done.
