So, I watched/listed to the whole hearing the other day on January 6 and the one republican congressman Andrew Clyde said, “Watching the TV footage of those who entered the Capitol and walked through Statuary Hall showed people in an orderly fashion staying between the stanchions and ropes taking videos and pictures,” Clyde said. “You know, if you didn’t know the TV footage was a video from January the 6th, you would actually think it was a normal tourist visit.”
Now, he was right. If you JUST look at a specific few minutes of video from Statuary Hall, the people that entered the capital are just walking between the ropes and stanchions. However, if you JUST look at a few minutes of video from one place and only at a specific time, that is not a reflection of the day as a whole and is a profound mischaracterization of the day.
What the hell is he playing at? Is he just playing to the Trump base while still, technically, telling the truth?
