To clarify, the only "hostages" from January 6th...

...were the Senators and Congress, and their aides, that were running for their lives, to keep from being kidnapped or murdered by a rampaging bunch of thugs, following the siren call of the Big Lie and their Cult Leader.

They were blockading themselves behind locked doors and were hiding in closets and under tables as the insurrectionists pounded on the doors, making murderous threats and calling names.

Those were the "hostages".

It is shameful and disgraceful to hear these MAGA traitors claim they are now "hostages" because they were caught and are being held accountable.

Calling someone who is jail because of being tried and found guilty of a crime in a legitimate court of law a "hostage" is just plain stupid!
