Mike Papantonio:             Yeah.

A Capitol rioter was busted after documenting his crimes in his daily planner. You know, some stories you read and I almost, I, I just, this story just cracked me up, this 70, this what, 71 year old man, he’s keeping a daily planner of all the crimes he’s committing January 6th at the Capitol. Pick it up from there.

Farron Cousins:                  As he’s committing them.

Mike Papantonio:             Yeah.

Farron Cousins:                  So he went in there with his little day planner and as he, we gotta read it because this is hilarious. Parked, parked car at 11:00 AM. Was at the front of the Capitol building at 12:15. Gates were breached at 1:00 PM. Moving up to steps at 1:30. Got pepper sprayed at 2:00 PM. Started to leave at 3:30. So even after he got pepper sprayed, he still stayed an hour and a half.

Mike Papantonio:             Okay. So, you know, let me take the lawyer. How do you defend it? I mean, he’s doing the work for the police and all they do is they take the video, right. They’re video and all this. They’re saying, okay, does this match up to this guy says he’s, you know, pepper sprayed. This guy was such a nut he started beating on one of the police officers with a pole.

Farron Cousins:                  So he.

Mike Papantonio:             It’s on camera.

Farron Cousins:                  And he is facing very serious jail time. Serious fines for this.

Mike Papantonio:             Eight years, could be eight years.

Farron Cousins:                  But, but it’s so funny. It’s like, if you’re going to rob a bank and you’re like, 11:00 AM put on mask.

Mike Papantonio:             Nine, o’clock had breakfast, prepared to rob the bank.

Farron Cousins:                  Right. That’s how stupid so many of these people are. And, and this honestly I’ve, I’ve reported on all of these that I can because they are so hilarious to me. This is the dumbest, I, I gotta tell you this guy right here.

Mike Papantonio:             This, this wins the prize in Farron, in Farron Cousin’s mind?

Farron Cousins:                  So far. I mean, I’m sure we’ll find dumber eventually, but so far, this is the worst.
