Company fires employee who stormed Capitol with badge on

Supporters of President Donald Trump are confronted by Capitol Police officers outside the Senate Chamber inside the Capitol Jan. 6 in Washington. At right is Nicholas Rodean of Frederick.

A Frederick marketing firm on Thursday fired an employee who is seen in images of the riotous siege upon the Capitol the day before.

The firm, Navistar Direct Marketing, issued the following statement on the dismissal of the man, who has since been identified as Nicholas Rodean.

“After review of the photographic evidence, the employee in question has been terminated for cause,” the company said in a statement on Facebook. “… While we support all employees’ right to peaceful, lawful exercise of free speech, any employee demonstrating dangerous conduct that endangers the health and safety of others will no longer have an employment opportunity with Navistar Direct Marketing.”

Rodean is seen wearing a Navistar badge in the images captured from within the Capitol. The News-Post has verified the name on the badge.

According to its Facebook page, Navistar is a “digital and conventional printing company with full-service direct mail production servicing nonprofit, commercial and political clients.”

A voicemail left on Navistar’s main line Thursday afternoon was not returned as of press time.

Another local business, Glory Doughnuts & Diner in Frederick, was also quick to call out Rodean.

“He is a former weekend employee of ours whom was let go last February,” a Glory Doughnuts Facebook post states. “We are shocked, saddened, and do not stand by this. This is not American. This is not patriotic.”

Both companies said they have contacted the authorities about the matter.

The FBI could not immediately comment on the situation, while the Metropolitan Police in Washington, D.C., said they’re working to confirm the identity of all persons of interest from Wednesday’s riot.

Two photos that appear to be of Rodean are listed on the Metro Police’s website.

“We’re still receiving an overwhelming amount of tips,” Metropolitan Police spokeswoman Kristen Metzger told the News-Post. “Our system is overwhelmed … people are having a hard time getting through.”

Metzger said once investigators determine the identity of people listed in the photos, the images will be removed. Further investigation will then ensue, likely with aid from local authorities.

"At will":

"In Maryland, employees work "at the will" of their employers. This means, in the absence of an express contract, agreement or policy to the contrary, an employee may be hired or fired for almost any reason -- whether fair or not -- or for no reason at all."

Are felony murder charges on the table for the all the rioters? They played, so they got to pay. The US has to come down very hard on all the participants, as the whole episode makes us look weak to the rest of the world.

Nicholas Rodean should be more concern in becoming some “bad man’s boyfriend” rather then losing his job. A Capitol Officer was killed. Just sayin’.

shiftless88

I am amused, but not surprised, that "people" like CD equate marching on the streets and perhaps even spray painting or breaking some windows with breaking in the CAPITOL BUILDING while Congress was in session and the VP was present. Do you realize the national security differences?? If I break into a house it is one thing, if I break into the White House it is quite another.

Trump could do anything and Bosco and CD would call us hypocrites for critiquing it. They are completely invested in that and cannot think straight. I hope they will eventually snap out of it and see the new day of 2021. Thank goodness Trump and all he represents is on its way out. I expect even the music will be better.

"CNN's Chris Cuomo wondered Tuesday night why people expect protests to be "polite and peaceful."

"Please, show me where it says that protests are supposed to be polite and peaceful," he said. "Because I can show you that outraged citizens are what made the country what she is and led to any major milestone. To be honest, this is not a tranquil time."

Shiftless, several groups this year are guilty of crime and should be treated and prosecuted equally. There are bad folks on both sides. I am sorry for the Capitol Police who are being made to be the "fall guys" when they were obviously overtaken by a force more powerful than they expected. It was right to call in the National Guard to quell the Trump extremists and I have no problem calling in the Guard again should there be looting, violence, and vandalism by any other group, or to help drastically reduce crime in some of our problematic cities. Very sad to see what is happening in my beloved country. Make America Great Again!

????There are bad folks on both sides....is that the opposite or the same of "very fine people on both sides."...like when Trump said that about the "white people" in Charlottesville? and when you say "bad folks" what color are you thinking of?

Could you clarify your statement a tad because all the bad folks I saw Wednesday were white? Oh and in Charlottesville too...

MD1756

I am curious as to why some people believe private property warrants better protection than federal buildings and an assault on the government that disrupted its operations. Both are bad but there is no real comparison as to the degree. My problem, for this issue, with those on the left is that many do not believe in the use of the death penalty. If identified, and convicted I'd certainly hand down a death sentence at least for the person who killed the capitol police officer. Given the makeup of the traitors, it would probably help close the racial gap with the use of the death penalty.

C.D.Reid

So shiftless, you think that all the rioting last year was merely "marching on the streets and perhaps even spray painting or breaking some windows?" Seriously? Boy, you need to get your head out of the sand and face reality. Along with you sidekicks Greggy and NewMarketMommy/Chump. Comments like that only serve to prove just how blind and delusional you all are. And that's more than pathetic.

matts853

Trump is the patriarch of the most ignoble first family in American history. I’m sorry this young man was conned by them and his future compromised. It’s really not his fault.

To make America Sane Again, and to prevent further attacks on our sovereignty by Trump’s supporters, and to ensure no further loss of life incurs at the hands of these domestic terrorists - I propose a national plea bargain:

The incoming attorney general, all 50 state attorneys general, and the congressional leadership should offer Trump and his family full immunity for any federal or state crimes they can be charged for......in exchange for Trump addressing the nation and conceding that Joe Biden is in fact - as the result of a free and fair election - the duly elected 46th president of the Untied States. Trump must also state that there was indeed no election fraud. He must apologize to the nation for his hand in the disgraceful events of January 6. He must advocate for unity and an end to tribal politics. He must commit to not seeking future public office or serving in any future presidential administrations. He must have no contact or business dealings with foreign leaders. He must agree to never using social media. He must agree to never be interviewed. He must agree to not start any media companies.

5 minutes on YouTube and he can make all this go away. He’s a bad man and not worth the political trouble of bringing to justice. Put him in exile and let’s move on. I just want my country back.

matts853

JFK was an actual patriot having served as a PT boat skipper in the pacific theater. And he actually did his job and stood up to the Soviets and staved of Nuclear Armageddon. He kept America safe. Trump could never have saved the world like JFK did. He was a flawed womanizer and was born into a grifter family, but so was Trump. RFK was also flawed but wasn’t a narcissistic sociopath like Trump. Ted Kennedy should have stayed in the car. He was a coward. So I’m sticking with the Trumps as the WOAT.

End of Story.......”Statistically impossible to have lost the 2020 Election,” Trump, a Republican, tweeted on 20 December. “Big protest in DC on January 6th. Be there, will be wild!”

They turned out in the thousands and heard the president urge them to march on the Capitol building to express their anger at the voting process and to pressure their elected officials to reject the results.

“We’re going to walk down to the Capitol and we’re going to cheer on our brave senators and Congressmen and women,” Trump told the crowd, speaking with the White House as a backdrop.

Appearing at what could be his last rally as the sitting president, Trump exhorted his supporters “to fight.”

PurplePickles aka L&M

@phy

I would like just one of the Trump supporters, one time to tell us others how they thought storming the Capitol building was going to change anything about the election?

In my mind, here's the real power of slogging through the daily local commentary and local newspapers: to attempt to address, confront, and challenge the lies and chimera some will continue to tell, as they lie to themselves, and anyone else who will listen.....day in and day out, in defense of a liar.

I'm not sure what they expected Pence to do but they were planning on doing this to Pence:

'Hang Mike Pence!' Trump supporters intended to execute vice president during Capitol riots

Some of President Donald Trump's supporters apparently intended to kidnap Vice President Mike Pence and execute him if he didn't overturn their election loss.

The president's supporters stormed into the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday, as Pence presided over the congressional certification of Joe Biden's election win, and video captured some of them threatening to execute the vice president -- who Trump had singled out in a speech just minutes before they burst into the building.

"Hang Mike Pence, hang Mike Pence," the crowd chanted as alarms sounded after the mob broke into the Capitol.

Someone needs to invent a word much stronger than “hypocrite” to apply to the RRR(RadicalRightRepublicans). As everyone keeps pointing out what the response would have been if these Terrorists were carrying BLM Flags. There would have been fire hoses blasting those who were occupying the Capitol steps and many bodies on the floors in the building. Where were the guys in unmarked swat gear carrying Billy clubs jumping out of Black vans?

They beat that Officer with a fire extinguisher, his eye was dislodged & killed him. Who’s defends that or any of the participants 🤷‍♂️? Igrace, are you?

Sycamore1041

I am heartened to see how many of my fellow Frederick residents recognized Wednesday's demonstration by Trump's supporters for what it was: a treasonous attack on the halls of Congress and an attempt to overturn the results of the presidential election. Anyone who attempts to justify this horrifying attack as an exercise of 1st Amendment rights is just demonstrating their ignorance and blind sycophancy to the mendacious, self-serving, corrupt individual who was roundly voted out of the White House on Nov. 3.

anInterestedPerson

On Jan 6, the Capital Building was NOT open to the public. Access was restricted. The doors were locked and Police Officers were there to enforce those restrictions. One police officer was beaten to death by the Terrorists. True, people are innocent until proven guilty. Maybe they can get Trump to pay their legal expenses.

lgrace

Shame on Navistar Direct Marketing, Glory Doughnuts and Diner, and FNP for making this personnel issue public. The terminology and tone of the several articles on the protest are indicative of how media (especially AP) and platforms are fanning the flames of divisiveness and hate. Additionally, FNP routinely allows hate filled comments from the same commenters day after day. Most comments violate nearly every rule/guide under the "welcome to the discussion" box. Many in our political environment, including Obama, Trump, Pelosi, Schumer, Walters, Omar, Schiff and others, are responsible for creating the uncivil tone that citizens have embraced. Change starts with the individual and what you tolerate. I find it very unfortunate that I cannot rely on unbiased reporting from any source. FNP, you can do better. I hope you will find the moral courage to do so.

Spoken like a “Proud Boy 👦 “. It’s there fault I’m angry 😡. The picture of Nicholas Rodman and the other seditionist went viral internationally before he was fired and report in the FNP. C’mon, he was party to a Capitol Police officer’s death. A murder investigation has been open today by the federal government.

Being fired should be the least of his concerns.

Piedmontgardener

Do what? A local resident takes part in an insurrection and his employers aren't allowed to protect their business reputation by publicly announcing his firing? Seriously, what are you arguing here - that private business cannot protect its community good will by terminating for cause an employee that has been associated with something abhorrent. That's a pretty weird argument. Not exactly the free market Republican argument one might expect from a traditional Republican. Lastly, would you kindly elaborate on your statement that this is "biased" reporting. Just because something that is factual offends someone doesn't make it "biased". I'm so tired of seeing this "fake news", I demand only the news I agree with mindset, it's poisoning this country.

MRS M

lgrace..........Just now awakened from Wednesday's frightening tragedy to address a lack of civility in our national discourse this morning? "Fanning the flames of diviseness and hate" has been goin' on since Trump was elected, led by Trump, just as he led them to the Capitol on Wednesday, blatantly fanning .....the hatred and diviseness you mention . Enabled by the Republican Party and it's members, who looked the other way as the incivility continued unabated and unaddressed.. I might guess, as others will here, where you and your head and "pen" have been these last 5 years, but speaking of "moral courage" I wonder why you have not spoken out in the last 5 years to address the lack of moral courage and ugly rhetoric from Trump, his enablers, and his Republican Party? Cowardly, and too little, to late, Pence, McConnell, Graham, Sasse, Blatchford, Des. Shameful, actually.

The Capitol is not open to Terrorists at any time. They killed a Policeman. They injured 56 Policemen. As bosco has admonished us many times, do what the Policemen say and you will be fine. Those Terrorists attacked the Policemen, including the young man from Frederick.

Offering that the Capitol was open to the general public on Wednesday is the lowest level of trolling one could offer. It's a laughable deflection, but points for trying, I guess.

Aslan19

@DickD, yes, it was rather stupid to wear a company badge; however, unless his company's documented policies prohibit it, it is not illegal. Furthermore, no evidence has been published to prove that he was participating in a riot or insurrection. Based on the available evidence, all that can be proven is that he was in the Capital and talked or listened to a police officer while holding a Trump flag. I realize that you are rapidly anti-trump and republican, but last time I checked, holding a flag in a hallway while talking or listening to a police officer isn't a crime.

Thank you for proving my original point so succinctly.

Aslan19

@Matts, I am not arguing that people did enter parts of the Capital where they should not have been, committed vandalism, and interrupted Congress's joint session. I am only talking about the one specific person shown in a picture standing by three other people, talking or listening to a capital police officer who has been tried and convicted of everything from sheer stupidity to high crimes and misdemeanors by the all-knowing arbiters of what is right and wrong here at the Frederick Fish Wrapper, I mean Frederick New Post.

matts853

Not sure why I’m bothering, but here goes:

First off, the Capitol has been closed to the public because of Covid.

Second, the grounds were sealed off either by fences or other barricades. Everyone one of these people who gained access crossed them.

No one - repeat no one - in their right minds could believe the Capitol was open for “coffee with a cop day” or to use the bathroom.

MD1756

They were all in there illegally and illegally disrupting the business of the government and the people. A very small subset of the people cannot just decide to storm a federal building. Also, the public is not allowed to use bathrooms in federal (working) buildings (any federal museum or similar building may be exempted) unless they have business with whatever agency, office, etc. Security will not let people in who have no official business and are not escorted by a federal employee once in (at least that is the way it worked at the U.S. EPA). When someone is allowed in, they are given a temporary paper visitor's pass and must be escorted. Where was that person's temporary pass and where was his escort? On the face of it, he is clearly, illegally occupying the capitol. Additionally, he used a private company's identity badge in public. I don't know of any companies that allow their identity badges to be used for anything other than official business. They would face significant legal risks if a person were allowed to misuse their identity badges. Finally the badge was used in public so it is not a "private personnel matter."

Matts--I sincerely hope that you will afford yourself the opportunity, and humor conservatives, to seek out information that is contrary to your already preconceived conclusion that the Nov 3 election was not fraudulent. Many colleges and universities used to teach critical thought, but I guess it is no longer in vogue. If you can truly say, without a doubt, that the Nov 3 election was honest and fair after reading this information, then I'll accept your blanket statement that those marching on Wednesday were protesting against a lie. P.S. Try using a search engine other than Google. It's amazing the information that Google searches don't return.

@Igrace

Please get out of your information bubble. The reason these alternatives exist is to reinforce a skewed narrative that insulates you from reality. You are not doing yourself any favors in supporting a lie.

matts853

I’ve listened to the unfiltered words coming directly from the mouths of high ranking conservative officials - not the seditious Republicans in Congress - who have ALL said there is ZERO evidence of fraud or anything remotely resembling a rigged election.

They have actually said these things in public, out loud, in English, that anyone who may have missed what they said can go back and listen to online with just a little research using web browsers like safari, yahoo, and yes even google. I’m talking about conservative high brass like Bill Barr & Mitch McConnell, Every single Republican governor and their Secretaries of State and ranking election officials who certified their states’ votes, Every single court in the United Sates that heard and rejected Trumps claims - including Republican judges appointed by Trump himself - not to mention the conservative Supreme Court with three Trump appointees currently serving that has twice (2x) rejected Trump’s advances.

So yes, I’m 100% sure there was no fraud.

Trump has lied to you. Rudy G. has lied to you.

Ted Cruz has lied to you.

Ordinarily I’m not inclined to engage with people like yourself who clearly troll the “conservative” (far from it actually) media ecosystems of disinformation like Parler and wherever else the QAnon and MAGA crowd slither around in. But I want to help you. So there it is. You need to come up for air and clear your head of all the lies and conspiracy theories you’ve been exposed to. LISTEN to the actual people who know the truth.

And BTW, I’m a life-long registered Republican

and I’m conservative. Even better, I’m informed with facts. It’s cool to be smart. Try it.

@MRS M

Igrace, PDL, CDeez and Aslan are working harder than a cat trying to bury a turd in a marble floor to defend the indefensible.

shiftless88

Igrace; that is easy. You see, Trump and partners have filed more than 60 lawsuits presenting evidence of fraud (well, not all were accusing fraud) and guess what? They were pretty much all rejected. When you file a suit you need to present evidence but, darn it, the evidence turned out to be vaporous. So unless you are imagining a nationwide judicial conspiracy, including many judges installed by Trump/McConnell, then I think it is pretty clear there was no significant fraud in this election.

@matts853

There is also video of them harming a journalist. They were trying to hurt him as he was simply trying to document what they were doing. After knowing what else happened, he was right to be terrified for his life. They also destroyed thousands of dollars of AP equipment. This was absolutely an insurrection.

These people left pipe bombs and stole property from the capitol.

sevenstones1000

Oh don’t worry. Trump will pardon him. He can come back to Frederick and get free drinks on this story from a certain segment of Fredericktonians , for the rest of his life. He can probably join the sheriffs department.

Brookhawk

Trump can't pardon them from charges that are not federal, and there are plenty of DC charges to be had.

bnick467

FNP, allow me to fix your headline for this story:

"Frederick company fires employee who participated in TERRORIST ATTACK AGAINST THE UNITED STATES CONGRESS"

Let's start calling this what it is, Right-Wing Domestic Terrorism.

pdl603

Oh the outrage, you people are incredible. The left’s assault on the constitution and the daily life of ordinary Americans is far more insidious than this. But, say what you will as our freedoms, jobs and spending power are eroded back to what Obama called the new normal over the next four years and beyond. Hail to The Party!!!!

MRS M

piddle, yer postings are degenerating from the usually angry, foolish and ignorant to that reminiscent of Germany, 1939. Be careful what you wish for, piddlestream. Surely Wednesday's attack might give you pause to continue with your harmful rhetoric....just as it has that other coward, just as Trump demonstrated last night on his taped "call for a peaceful transition".

NewMarketParent

@MRS M

What's refreshing is that everyone of these terrorists, when staring down accountability, undoubtedly and on queue starts crying like a baby.

Every single one.

matts853

Trumpism on the whole is riddled with parallels to Nazi Germany, which isn’t surprising considering that Trump was a student of Hitler’s speeches and a fan of Mein Kampf. Both were bedside reading material.

It’s amazing how little the cult understands about who Trump is, especially when it’s sooooo obvious what he’s not - like a patriot or even a real president. Up until Wednesday Trump was a PINO (President In Name Only). Since Wednesday he - in the words just yesterday from former Trump Defense Secretary and former member of the Joint Chiefs Of Staff, retired 4 star general James “mad dog” Mattis:

“Mr. Trump will deservedly be left a man without a country."

Them’s some strong words from a true American patriot. But what does he know.

So, if Trump is a man without a country, then that means his supporters who attacked America yesterday are without a leader right now. Does that make them confederates?

NewMarketParent

@PDL

Please point to the place on the constitution where it was hurt.

Otherwise, please take your sedition elsewhere.

matts853

It wasn’t the left that assaulted the Capitol on Wednesday. It was highly confused people who think like you (and perhaps look like you draped in a Trump flag or maybe even the Stars and Bars?) that did this.

All of the following words in one context or another apply to Trump and his supporters that assaulted the crucible of our democratic republic on Wednesday (I’m referring to the Capitol building where congress (that’s the Senate and House of Representatives) passes Legislation and does other constitutional stuff like certify the electoral college votes and impeach bad presidents): traitor, treason, insurrection, sedition, criminal, un-American, un-patriotic.

Of course those are in no particular order of magnitude.

matts853

I forgot un-constitutional, piddle.

Hayduke2

Hey pdl, give me the concrete examples of how your daily life and freedoms were diminished under Obama, or Bush 2, or Clinton, or Bush 1, or .... Give me the rhetoric that Obama used to claim any election was fradulent, or incite people to rise up and storm the Capital, or to " stand by" .... Come on bro, show me a factual case of an assault on the Constitution ...

So the goat on the right is from Frederick? Terrific. Maybe the FNP can get an exclusive interview.

gardenwhimsey

Trump should be charged with inciting a riot.

matts853

It looks like the DC AG will do precisely that.

MDTechie

I hope they throw the book at him.

Piedmontgardener

I just feel sorry for him, he didn't have a solid civic education and was an easy target to recruit to an ideology that now is going to destroy his life forward. I hope he has some time in federal prison to read things other than twisted propaganda that makes him think the oldest republican democracy in the world needs to be fixed.

Piedmont. [thumbup][thumbup]

I will feel sorry for him when he repents. Genuinely, publicly, over and over again.

Let's not forget the Capitol Police officers who were caught on video moving the barriers and waving the insurgents ahead.

pdl603

Why not just hang them straight away, Dick? Isn’t that what you do to traitors, Dick? All the rhetoric on this page and in the national media will lead to innocent people being killed. They will be republicans that are killed, but what does it matter, right Dick?

DickD

You riot and promote insurection, that is destruction of our Constitution and law and order. What happened to the Republicans? You support that, Piddle?

C.D.Reid

Interesting, Dick, I don't seem to remember you calling for prosecution of the thousands who rioted, burned, looted, etc. last year. Why didn't you?

phydeaux994

According to Christopher Wray, head of the FBI, those were Right Wing Group agitators leading those nighttime riots, not peaceful BLM Protesters Dave. Try to keep up.

MRS M

Piddlestream, speaking of hangings, the mob erected a wooden structure from which they hung a noose on Wednesday. This picture was seen throughout the world.

You who support this insurrection are shameful and should be shamed. I'm sorry to see your ignorance and hatred on full display, as are many others here. You've been asked before......why not just stay on Facebook amongst friends to further incite Trump's audience of loyal and true believers?

C.D.Reid

Dick, did you see just how many participants there were? And do you think that all the participants who were involved in all the rioting last year should be prosecuted for the destruction they did in those riots too?

Actually Cd, White supremacist groups pose the largest threat out of any domestic extremist group in the US, according to the DHS by far, by 76%.

Comment deleted.
C.D.Reid

A "grab from the local tee shirt shop," Greg Fartblossom? And you think that's all the rioting last year by blm and antifa was? Boy, are you ever blind, or stupid. Or both. You know, you really don't need to keep proving just how ignorant you are with cracks like that, we learned that right when you started posting comments here.

NewMarketParent

Imagine loosing your livelihood or your life even for a failed TV reality star.

C.D.Reid

Imagine loosing your livelihood or your life because of rioting blm and antifa a$$holes.

Oh one of those smart Patriots, I love happy endings.

LJF0929

Oh and by the way......what the heck is wrong with these people? Seriously - animal skins, painted body, horns...... from which koo-koo house did fools escape?

Burgessdr

They are typical Trumpsters. All freaks

LJF0929

Considering every single idiot that entered a federal building yesterday, illegally by force had a cell phone and was taking pictures and videos - it's only a matter of time until they lose jobs, family members, friends, coworkers, etc. If we follow what Trump stated in July, each and every one of them should serve a mandatory 10 years!

DickD

[thumbup][thumbup]

What kinda intelligence does it take to videotape yourself assaulting the Capitol? Oh, never mind. The intelligence of a typical Trumpster.

Frankle1

Even more than 10 years, this was terrorism, the looted a secure government building. They'll be lucky if they only get 10 years. This is Gitmo level shiz- the NDAA doesn't mess around with terrorists.

sevenstones1000

Trump will pardon them all.

bosco

[thumbup][thumbup][thumbup][thumbup].........or maybe adopt the Democrats tough stance on rioters such as when Pelosi was asked about the rioting, burning, and looting..... "People do what they do".... while CommaLa was raising funds to bail out those arrested for rioting and arson.

duffy5x

You just need to STOP!!!You can't turn this around. Trump incited his white nationalist mob. Own it!! This is what you support. This is who and what you are on here CONSTANTLY defending. Pathetic violent terrorists. That's YOUR party.

NewMarketParent

@CDeez

People just get tired of getting peed on and told that its raining. Maybe one day you will support the truth, until then good luck in information bubbleland.

threecents

Duffy, Trump was correct that people like Bosco and CD will still support him if he shoots someone in broad daylight. They will continue to draw false comparisons that they think shows "hypocrisy on the left." That is basically all they can think about.

Still working so hard to defend the indefensible, huh bosco? Four (countem' .... four! thumbs up!! here) A truly embarassing display from a proud and brave, tough american biker. always looking out to preserve life, liberty and the pursuit of his own personal happiness down at the pond.

But the truly brave of America are those who have fought and died on foreign lands, or in the Great Hall of the US Capitol, to preserve the right for the likes of you, piddle, and CD to air your "patriotic" views that attacking the US Capitol by a right wing mob of sick, insurgent, Trump incited criminals is....................what now? Oh, I see, just Another effort for Republicans in good standing, such as yourself, to look the other way, blame the democrats, or Antifa. Sad excuses for a sad, sad, impotent group of individuals............all having responsibility for Wednesday's terrifying assault, as the world watched.

phydeaux994

bosco, Dave, you are wrong. Trump condemned them in the strongest terms yesterday😂🤣after saying “we love you, you are special” and admitting there was no election fraud and Biden won the Presidency by a Landslide. Which everybody with a brain already knew. Peace.✌️😷

Hayduke2

Hi, my name is bosco and I push buttons. It makes me feel my comments are relevant.

This guy really wore his work badge to storm the US Capitol and commit sedition? Boy Trump supporters are a special bunch.
