Left-wing MSNBC host Lawrence O'Donnell declared in a tweet on Thursday that being in the U.S. Capitol felt like visiting a "historic battlefield."
"Today is my 1st time inside the Capitol since Jan 6. Everything looks the same but it doesn’t feel the same. Maybe I’ll get used to it again but now it feels like a visit to an historic battlefield. Out of every window you see the paths of the attackers," he tweeted.
People on social media responded to O'Donnell's dramatic post with ridicule.
"I don’t want to live in the same country with people like this," one person tweeted.
"Cringe," someone else wrote.
"Get a grip, dude," someone else tweeted.
"Lmao this is so dramatic it's hilarious," another commenter noted.
"How embarrassingly maudlin," someone else wrote.
The U.S. House of Representatives voted to impeach then-President Donald Trump in the wake of the January 6 Capitol riot — 10 House Republicans were among the lawmakers who voted in favor of impeachment. The Senate did not vote until after Trump had already departed from office, and the vote fell short of the threshold for necessary for conviction.
"They are still arresting them. If you attacked the Capitol on Jan 6 & you haven't been arrested yet, please be patient," O'Donnell recently tweeted.
During Trump's tenure, O'Donnell claimed that Trump was "a Russian operative" and suggested that the "Trump regime" might be better described as the "Trump-Putin regime."
