Legal Twitter Reacts To The Rule Of Law Collapsing

In case you’re too busy with work to pay attention to what’s going on in Washington, D.C., I hate to be the one to tell you, but there’s a violent coup attempt underway. And I’m not exaggerating. The political theater Senator Josh Hawley started by objecting to the certification of the electoral college results have reached its logical conclusion.

Armed MAGA protestors have stormed the Capitol Building. Vice President Pence has been escorted to a secure location, the building has been evacuated, and curfew is in place.w

Here’s the reaction you need to know right now (this article will be updated throughout the day, please refresh often for the latest).
