Oh no, not that. Anything but THAT.
Please, dear God, no.
The United States Capitol was evacuated Wednesday evening due to a “probable threat” from an aircraft, the U.S. Capitol Police said.
How perfectly awful.
“The USCP is tracking an aircraft that poses a probable threat to the Capitol complex,” the statement said, according to an email posted on Twitter by a Capitol staffer.
Gee, hope everyone’s okay. It would be just terrible if anyone was hurt.
Moments later, Capitol Police informed staffers that the aircraft no longer posed a threat.
Oh, good then. Sean Davis mines the rich, rich vein of hilarity here for all he can extract.
It took all of 30 seconds of Googling to figure this out.
Capitol Police have no problem digging up dirt on staff, visitors, or even on *pastors officiating funerals*—they apparently love using Google for that.
But this they missed? Shocking, criminal incompetence. https://t.co/6nMxVi7kQp

The Golden Knights, eh? Military Appreciation Day? What on earth would lead one to assume any reptile slithering and sliming around in the Mordor on the Potomac cesspool would know, or care, the first dang thing about THAT? Jesse Kelly Goes Sean one better:
I never believed a plane was trying to breach the Capitol because if it was the Capitol Police would have let it in and then complained about it afterwards.

It’s funny ’cause it’s true, and you know it is. Being ever the optimistic type, I’ll content myself with considering this a dress rehearsal.
