I think we’ll remember it how the media depicted it, and I think the media skews a lot of different things. It was a horrible day. I don’t think you can blame it all on one person. I think Americans have forgotten how to work together, and I think if we don’t figure that out soon, we’re going to be in big trouble.

It’s a significant event for sure, but I think there will be a little bit of controversy on both sides for years to come. How it will play out? It’s hard to say.

As a terrible, terrible event and certainly a turning point. It was shocking. I couldn’t comprehend what I was seeing and that this was really happening.

There are too many factors within the storm on the Capitol. Not very smart things were said through social media, which is the No. 1 cause of such an outburst. Social media is worldwide, and everyone sees things differently.
