Inauguration Day was a trip, wasn’t it?
Nobody ever thought Donald Trump would become president. Then, it happened – and people were pissed.
However, some people are looking at decades in prison for showing just how angry they were.
We’re talking 80 years.
80 years for protesting!?
On January 21, most of the 230 protesters and bystanders arrested the day before were charged with felony rioting, which carries a maximum prison sentence of 10 years and a $25,000 fine.
But on April 27, the Superior Court of the District of Columbia returned a superseding indictment which added additional charges for some 212 defendants, three of whom had not previously been charged.
With new felony charges including urging to riot, conspiracy to riot and destruction of property, many of the defendants are facing up to 80 years in prison. Many other defendants, among them journalists, are facing more than 70 years.
2pm is my first court case since getting indicted. I'm facing 80 years in prison for an anti trump protest along with 200 other people.

I bet Donald is smiling from ear to ear.
