Terror at the U.S. Capitol Building

47 minutes

On January 6, 2021, the United States (and, indeed, the rest of the world) was shocked to witness the violent attack on the U.S. Capitol led by Trump loyalists.  The attack happened during a joint session of Congress as representatives were certifying the result of the 2020 election, which decided Joe Biden would be the next president of the United States. Shock, fear, and anger were felt by millions as they watched the storming of the Capitol building. The Espresso Talk Today team changed its publishing calendar to approach and discuss the attempted coup. White supremacy? White Nationalism? Racism? Domestic terrorism? Treason? Authoritarianism? American exceptionalism? Everything is on the table for discussion by the Espresso Talk Today team.  Join us for a lively and insightful discussion about this attack on democracy.
