Jordan Klepper reported on the scene during the Capitol Hill Insurrection

Jordan Klepper has followed Trump supporters for years now for Comedy Central. But Wednesday, Jan. 6, 2021, was different.

As Klepper reported that day near the Washington Monument: “You can tell these people really love America by the number of weapons they brought to hurt other Americans.”

He also Tweeted this that day:

At least five people died during the insurrection that ensued when the mob rioted upon the U.S. Capitol. This was his report as it aired this week on The Daily Show.
