After watching the attack on the Capitol, the former Republican governor of California Arnold Schwarzenegger made it clear that Donald Trump is the worst President ever, and he is riding with President-elect Joe Biden.
Like most of us, Schwarzenegger was outraged by the attack on the Capitol. He said it made him reminiscent of his childhood in Austria, a country that loss its democracy.
I grew up in Austria. I’m very aware of Kristallnacht, or the Night of Broken Glass. It was a night of rampage against the Jews in carried out in 1938 by the Nazi equivalent of the Proud Boys. Wednesday was the Day of Broken Glass right here in the United States.
The broken glass was in the windows of the United States Capitol. But the mob did not just shatter the windows of the Capitol. They shattered the ideas we took for granted. They did not just break down the doors of the building that housed American democracy. They trampled the very principles on which our country was founded.
President Trump sought to overturn the results of an election and of a fair election. He sought a coup by misleading people with lies… I know where such lies lead. President Trump is a failed leader. He will go down in history as the worst president ever. The good thing is he will soon be as irrelevant as an old tweet.
We need to heal, not just as republicans or as democrats, but as Americans. Now to begin this process, no matter what your political affiliation is, I ask you to join me in saying to President-elect Biden, ‘President-elect Biden, we wish you great success as our president. If you succeed our nation succeeds. We support you with all our hearts as you seek to bring us together.
And to those who think they can overturn the United States Constitution, know this: You will never win. President-elect Biden, we stand with you today, tomorrow, and forever in defense of our democracy from those who would threaten it.

What baffles me is why did it take some idiots to storm the Capitol for America to realize that Donald Trump is not suitable to be President of the United States? A lot of us knew this four years ago.
