It’s a scene of chaos that took place on the Capitol. On Wednesday January 6, as Senate representatives held a session to certify Joe Biden’s victory in the US presidential election, pro-Trump protesters burst into the building, causing scenes of violence and sowing chaos. An “insurrectionary” situation for the 46th elected president, while Donald Trump and his vice-president Mike Pence called for a return to calm, without however condemning these acts.
Shocking images, on which these demonstrators waved pro-Trump flags, but also the flag of the Confederate States, a confederation born out of a political reaction in 1860 to a desire for slavery reform. What provoke strong reactions among the stars, who were very involved during the American presidential election, calling for the vote for the exit of Donald Trump. “Why are people surprised that this is happening?” Asked Alyssa Milano, adding that “for months” the outgoing president “has been inciting violence”.
WHY ARE PEOPLE SURPRISED THIS IS HAPPENING? WE’VE BEEN TELLING YOU FOR MONTHS THAT HE WAS INCITING VIOLENCE.

Tensions that Donald Trump has indeed not allowed to appease after the election of Joe Biden, whom he has still not officially recognized, he who has called several times to recount the votes in the States he lost, like Georgia, where he even made a controversial call. “I am speechless,” lamented Chris Evans, while Mark Ruffalo invoked the 25th amendment to the Constitution, which concerns the impeachment of the president.

It makes me sad to believe how naive I was to think that this couldn’t happen, and yet it did,” Demi Lovato tweeted. “As a citizen of the United States, the daughter of two veterans and the sister of another, I am ashamed of what is happening in Washington. Hypocrisy, shame, Embarrassment. Unpatriotic hypocritical sheep drinking Kool Aid poison. C ‘It’s a sad day for America, “singer Pink tweeted, while Chloë Grace Moretz swore the scenes of violence are” not America. ”
My heart is broken. It makes me to sad to believe how naive I was to think this couldn’t possibly happen, and yet it did. Here we are. For everyone in my comments saying “where’s d7” or wanting me to sing instead of speaking up about what needs to change in this country … pic.twitter.com/md5XPFmj2B
