Idaho Caller on C-Span Says “I’m Sorry” for Voting for President Trump
A woman from Idaho was tearful when she called into the C-SPAN broadcast wanting to know if President Trump was being truthful to her and other Americans on Wednesday.
New York Times reporter Davey Alba shared the video on Twitter that has now surpassed more than 23,000 views.
One woman, who is yet to be identified, died after being shot in the chest on the Capitol grounds. According to DC Police, three other people also have died from "medical emergencies" during the riot.
President Trump addressed the country on two separate occasions on Wednesday in reference to what the caller meant about being "lied to today;" during a press conference right before the U.S. Capitol was breached and on Twitter, where he told his supporters to go home yet still presented baseless statements about the election being stolen. The president's Twitter account was shortly after temporally suspended for spreading false information and inciting violence.
All four members of Idaho's delegation condemned the pro-Trump rioters who stormed the U.S. Capitol Building yesterday as they attempted to stop the session to confirm President-elect Joe Biden as the next president of the United States. Idaho's senators and representatives called for the nonsense and violence to stop. Gov. Brad Little also addressed the situation calling the violence "inexcusable."
