Watch: MSNBC Host Pulls Out Tissue and Cries Live on Air Over Jan. 6

MSNBC anchor Jonathan Capehart burst into tears while discussing the January 6 Capitol protests with ex-Capitol Police officer Michael Fanone on Saturday.

“Thank you for what you did three years ago today. Please, tell me your thoughts on this third anniversary,” Capehart said while fighting back tears.

“We are still in the midst of the fight that began on Jan. 6, 2021, and we have a lot at stake in this country. And I think that it deserves every American’s attention,” Fanone replied.

Fanone is among a group of Capitol Police officers who became overnight heroes to people who spent nine months chanting “all cops are bastards” and “no justice, no peace.” After “rioting is the language of the unheard” was used to justify months-long riots and assaults on police, the same people have heaped praise upon Fanone and his colleagues, such as Harry Dunn, for their “heroism” displayed during the minor riot.

His testimony was used by Nancy Pelosi’s January 6 Committee, which defied congressional rules by not allowing then House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) to appoint his own members.

Elsewhere in the interview, Capehart asked Fanone about former President Donald Trump’s promise to pardon January 6 prisoners if re-elected.

“How damaging is it for Trump to label those violent rioters who were criminally charged and convicted as hostages?” the MSNBC host asked.

“I mean, you’ve got to think about those individuals that received those lengthy sentences. They did so because a) they engaged in an Insurrection. But their actions that day were violent, and that violence was directed towards law enforcement officers. And so… I think it’s clear that they deserve the sentences that they received,” Fanone replied.

“But by Donald Trump referring to them as hostages and speaking about them sympathetically, he’s lending his authority as the former president to their actions,” he added.

    The left better get all they can out of J6. The leftist Democrat evil vile satanic minions that fomented that melee on the American people won’t get another chance.

  • Loring says:

    Where are his tears for 1,400 Jews murdered in the most heinous ways? Where are his tears for the Americans maimed or killed by people that should have been stopped and vetted at the boarder. Where are his tears for the people harassed, prosecuted and imprisoned unjustly by a justice department that targets mostly conservatives. Where are his tears for over 6 million babies plus aborted since roe v wade, who weren’t allowed to have the same chances he has taken advantage of. The republic is indeed crumbling. But it is not the people on J6, no matter how stupid their actions were. A constitutional republic is a nationalistic entity. We are surrounded by globalist aka socialist. They will be the death of the republic.
