A Republican congressman who denied there was an insurrection and likened Capitol rioters to tourists was photographed barricading the chamber doors against them
Rep. Andrew Clyde the Insurrectionist congressman who compared Trump insurrectionists to "tourist visitors:"
"A photo emerged of a GOP lawmaker who last week downplayed the Capitol siege and compared the rioters to tourists barricading the House doors with furniture on January 6.
Rep. Andrew Clyde said during a House oversight committee hearing on Wednesday that it was a "bald-faced lie" to call the riot an insurrection. He said the riot, in which hundreds of Trump supporters breached the Capitol, resembled a "normal tourist visit."
After Clyde's comments, a photographer shared a photo he had taken of Clyde using furniture to barricade the House against rioters trying to force their way in to disrupt the certification of President Joe Biden's election victory.
Several people died in
the riot. "The normal tourist visit."
Trumpublican Representative Clyde also falsely claimed that police officers had not confiscated any firearms from people who breached the Capitol.
When your leader is a known LIAR, cheat, and fraud, you are compelled to out-lie him any chance you get. So Trumpublican Rep. Clyde told a rotten lie about what happened on January 6, and a photographer who captured him barricading himself along with other House members, exposed Clyde for the lying liar that he is.
That, dear friends, is Trump's legacy for the party once known as the GOP. It is no longer The Party of Lincoln, but has become, under Trump, the Party of Liars, Cheats, and Frauds.
