“Well, this is what one would call bad political optics.

You don’t deserve to be in America,” a woman shouted as she was being escorted out by police. “This is my America! My America,” she continued.
Vega played video of a crowd of protesters interrupting the electors in Pennsylvania with chants of “Shame on you!
