This video was recorded moments before Trump’s rally on January 6, 2021. I am sharing the full two-minute video with audio. Because the copyrighted song “Goria” by Laura Brannigan was playing in the background the audio was muted by some news outlets.
The video shows the merriment and glee in viewing the crowd of supporters on the monitors. Five Americans would die shortly afterwards.
I write much on the subject of how we share experiences differently. Depending on your point of view, you may find yourself joining in this victory celebration, or you may see an ugly stain in our democracy and one of the darkest chapters of our humanity.
