Five months after the January 6 insurrection, the House and Senate have come to an agreement that will award the Congressional Gold Medal to the officers who defended the Capitol.
But 21 House Republicans refused to support the legislation, the latest reminder that members of Congress still cannot agree on the facts of the deadly Capitol Hill riot.
There’s a certain perverse logic to it: if the riot didn’t happen, then the Capitol Police couldn’t have been heroes. After all, it was just Liberals/BLM/Antifa if it happened at all, which it didn’t.
And of course, the Terrible Sand Kingdom of Arizonastan has a special for us:
…which brought about a statement from Liz Cheney:
“On January 6, as the violent mob advanced on the House chamber, I was standing near @RepGosar and helped him open his gas mask. The Capitol Police led us to safety. It is disgusting and despicable to see Gosar lie about that day and smear the men and women who defended us.”
But I digest…
