We call them terrorists,” Tapper said. “That’s what we call people that commit acts of violence for a political of religious cause.” Tapper proceeded to blame Giuliani for the situation since the Trump’s personal attorney fired up the crowd earlier in the day by calling for a “trial by combat.” The CNN anchor then blasted President Donald Trump’s son for promising a “bloodless coup” against those who don’t help his father overturn the election. “Well, now it’s not bloodless anymore,” Tapper said. He also predicted Trump and Giuliani...

    As President Trump watched a mob of thousands of his supporters storm the seat of the United States government on Wednesday from a safe distance, he characteristically stewed and blew off steam in the White House—but not at the public displays of anti-democratic action that were unfolding in the nation’s capital. Upon arrival back at the White House, the president vented his fury that politicians and people on cable news were already starting to hold him responsible for the day’s mayhem, according to two people familiar with the situation. Predictably, Trump held the position that it wasn’t his fault, and that a strong public denunciation was not necessary at the time, the sources relayed. Trump did, however, make time to continue privately griping throughout Wednesday afternoon about how unfair his own vice president was being to him. White House spokespeople did not immediately provide comment for this story. Trump’s only...
