Massive crowds of rioters mixed with protesters have filled the streets of Washington D.C. setting fires across the city. Curfew, set by D.C.’s radical Trump-hating mayor, Muriel Bowser began at 11 PM. Knowing how violent these protests have become, curfew should have started before sunset at 6 PM.
Moments ago, firefighters were able to break through the crowds to begin extinguishing a fire started at the historic St. John’s Episcopal Church across from the White House.

Judicial Watch’s Tom Fitton tweeted about the lack of law enforcement in D.C., and how they’re allowing domestic terrorists to roam free in the city. “President Trump’s White House and our nation’s capital has come under attack with ineffective response from law enforcement and the military to this insurrection,” Fitton tweeted.
