Pro-Trump rioters not only smashed windows, broke into offices and fought with police officers during their attack on the Capitol, they also left behind a trail of their own feces. According to New York Daily News, the rioters tracked poop throughout several hallways after defecating inside the building.
White House staffers reportedly discovered the feces on Thursday (Jan. 7), a source close to Sen. Chuck Schumer told Daily News.
“It looked like they tracked it around,” they said, leaving behind brownish “footprints.”
Still, the source said the feces are currently the least of Schumer’s problems.
“Schumer is dealing with proverbial shit — not this kind,” they added.
Yesterday it was reported that a police officer had died after Trump supporters stormed Capitol Hill, bringing the total number of people who perished in the attack to five. A woman named Ashli Babbit was shot by police during the insurrection and three others were revealed to have died from medical emergencies. One rioter, it was later confirmed, passed away after accidentally shocking himself with a taser and subsequently suffering a heart attack.
Many, including Former First Lady Michelle Obama, condemned the riot.
“Like all of you, I watched as a gang—organized, violent and mad they’d lost an election—laid siege to the United States Capitol,” she said on Thursday.
“They set up gallows. They proudly waved the traitorous flag of the Confederacy through the halls. They desecrated the center of American government. And once authorities finally gained control of the situation, these rioters and gang members were led out of the building not in handcuffs, but free to carry on with their days,” she continued.
In a tweeted video that has since been removed, Trump told the rioters “We love you” and to “go home in peace.” Wednesday’s (Jan. 6) events have since caused several lawmakers and House Democrats to discuss removing Trump from office by way of the 25th Amendment.
