Local residents in D.C. to support Trump when Capitol was breached

Most Wyomingites took in the violence and destruction in the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday through their TVs, phones and computers.

Mark and Patty Junek of Gillette were in Washington, D.C. — there to show their support for President Trump and their shared view that the 2020 elections were racked with fraud.

Mark and Patty Junek,

You are clearly complicit in anti democratic behavior. Your participation in a mob who breached the sanctity of the American Democratic System is unacceptable. Excusing your choices and behavior typifies your right wing ilk You take no responsibility, deny reality and blame others. You continue to support a demagogue who is fomenting rebellion and excuse your own choices in challenging a legitimate election. I as a moderate Wyoming Republican am appalled by your defense of an attack on the Constitution and American Exceptionalism.


What I would like to know is if this insurrection WAS instigated by Antifa (which it was not) why didn't all the "patriots" there try to assist the few police to stop it? Time to take responsibility for your actions people.
