Democrats put on a big show in Washington, DC this week with thousands of National Guard members protecting the city during Joe Biden’s ‘virtual’ inauguration.
Once Democrats were done with the Guard, they were relegated to a DC parking garage to sleep on the cold floor.
This is a national disgrace.
‘We feel incredibly betrayed’: Thousands of Guardsmen forced to vacate Capitol
Thousands of National Guardsmen were allowed back into the Capitol Thursday night, hours after U.S. Capitol Police officials ordered them to vacate the facilities, sending them outdoors or to nearby parking garages after two weeks pulling security duty after the deadly riot on Jan. 6.
One unit, which had been resting in the Dirksen Senate Office building, was abruptly told to vacate the facility on Thursday, according to one Guardsman. The group was forced to rest in a nearby parking garage without internet reception, with just one electrical outlet, and one bathroom with two stalls for 5,000 troops, the person said. Temperatures in Washington were in the low 40s by nightfall.
“Yesterday dozens of senators and congressmen walked down our lines taking photos, shaking our hands and thanking us for our service. Within 24 hours, they had no further use for us and banished us to the corner of a parking garage. We feel incredibly betrayed,” the Guardsman said.

Try to imagine what Democrats and the media would do if this happened on Trump’s watch.
