Lots of Americans were shocked and horrified viewing Donald Trump fans stormed Capitol Hill on Wednesday, including former very first child Jenna Bush Hager. On the Thursday early morning episode of Today With Hoda & Jenna, Hager and co-host Hoda Kotb spoke about the Capitol Hill riot. Hager remembered how she’s had “the advantage” of standing on the Capitol steps for a number of presidential inaugurations, consisting of Barack Obama’s when she was an inner-city instructor in Washington, D.C., which implied “so much to so lots of” people.
” I kissed my grandfather bye-bye in that Rotunda,” Hager continued, remembering when George H. W. Bush died in 2018.
Hager said that we can share “compassion and smiles and love,” along with that she has “optimism” for our nation.
On Wednesday afternoon following a Stop the Steal rally in Washington, D.C., hundreds of Trump fans stormed the Capitol as an attempt to interfere with the certification of Joe Biden’s presidency from the Electoral College.
