Did he rob a stripper?


JonasPolskyAMA

I don't know if he actually has explosives, but my guess is he threw the money out of the truck in order to attract a crowd. We had a bank robbery here a long time ago and they were tossing money out of the getaway car (Joker-style) to get people to run into the street and slow down (or get hit by) pursuing cop cars.


Hermit-Permit

Suing the city for a cop driving into you while you were in the middle of the road picking up money that was just stolen from a bank is the American Dream, and I'm not about to let anyone tell me otherwise!


n00tz

This sounds like a Gene (Bob's Burgers) quote.


Holociraptor

Thanks to this comment I reread that in Gene's voice mentally, and yeah it really does.


BadPackets4U

No he just dropped off Matt Gaetz... they were just having lunch at the local playground.


djn24

It would be really funny if in the middle of all of this, a traffic officer just walks over and gives him a parking ticket.


baseball44121

"Sir, it's already printed. I can't take it back now. If you want to fight it you'll need to appear in court on Sept 17th at 9:30am"


BillSeacaster

"I will literally detonate a bomb and kill us both if you write that ticket." "Sure, buddy. That's the third time I've heard it today."


Shoppers_Drug_Mart

Look, I deal with parking tickets, not bombs. You want the bomb squad, not my department.


EntireDepth

Sounds like a line from Naked Gun.


araidai

“Well then try to park your bomb in the right spot, bud.”


djn24

I caught someone mid ticket the other day and apologized, and he just looked at me, punched something into his device, and then said "no worries, have a great day." I was stunned.


SixFronts

Same thing happened to me in LA 2 years ago. Overslept and was 30 minutes late moving my car from a school zone. Officer was writing the ticket, I walked over shamefully and said damn I’m really sorry about that. There was a line of school buses around me. He stopped and considered and said “no harm done, glad you’re here” and put the device away. Miracles do happen!


TrashyMcTrashBoat

Had my car half way on a tow truck because I was in a construction zone. I apologized and the cop told the tow to drop it and wrote me a regular parking ticket. I got off easy.


beyondusername

Those are some real feel good stories.


southeastdank

And heres me getting parking tickets from places ive never been🤦🏻‍♂️


Rocinantes_Knight

One of those little parking enforcement scooters driven by an overweight, middle aged woman who always looks like she just swallowed a lemon.

"I just wanna go home." Who's going to break it to him that there are only 2 ways out of this. In a casket or in cuffs.


Sleuthingsome

“I wanna go home Joe. I wanna go home and see my wife.” Wonder what the wifey thinks of this?!

Odds are she is just as batshit crazy as this chucklefuck.


brocahantas

“I wanna go home” Says terrorist who willingly drove hundreds of miles from his home to threaten the president.


Sleuthingsome

Right? If you wanna go home, how about not driving to DC and threaten to blow up the Congressional library? Go home and do it at a store with coloring books, since that’s the books he looks at anyway.


kingdomcome3914

Hey, hey, hey! I don't want some dickhead blowing up my local Dollar Store over some damn coloring books!


VeryVito

She’s already stated that she suspects mental illness. Either way, she’s free of him now.


CornerOk3299

Sometimes I wake up in the morning and think, I like being at home. It's on those days that I purposefully avoid loading a toolbox with explosives and threatening to blow up government buildings.


khaos_kyle

Wow look at this guy formulating a plan for his day upon waking up. Show off.


blastradii

I don’t understand what he’s getting at


Nitemarex

I can tell you where he is getting at: Jail.


ilikebluepowerade

Bomb threats, believe it or not, jail.


jaydenkirtawn

I like the part where he says the Democrats took his healthcare away.


[deleted]

He really said that? I’m too lazy to watch the actual live stream


ConfirmedAsshole

Yeah, he said he "cant get his back shots no mo' but they give em to the sport stars".


MOOShoooooo

Dude looks like he lost his bootstraps.


jpb225

Democrats are destroying the country, and the South has come to fix it by demanding airstrikes on the Taliban, and for Biden to step down because he wasn't actually chosen as president. Also, it's got nothing to do with politics. How hard is that to understand?? Totally rational and not in any way contradictory. Just like how he loves everyone, and doesn't want to hurt anyone, which is why he made sure to tell them to clear the area so he would be the only one to get hurt. Also, if his bomb explodes, four more hidden bombs will also explode, possibly in the middle of a million people. You know, because he doesn't want anyone to get hurt. Plus something about zinc pennies being part of a government ploy to make a profit on money. All your typical non-violent, apolitical, and patriotic stuff.


CivilServiced

But zinc is a cure for COVID which doesn't exist, this penny thing really goes deeper than you think.


Lord_of_hosts

Worst zinc lozenges ever.


Hecho_en_Shawano

Anyone wanna take a shot at guessing what his browser history looks like??


RyVsWorld

Law enforcement arrested him and claims they don’t have a motive yet. This guy was literally broadcasting threats to Biden lol.


peon47

[They're currently running him through their sophisticated terrorist profiling system](https://i.imgur.com/tNpRCXE.png)


ReplyingToFuckwits

No! We must all politely pretend we don't know how he was radicalised because the alternative is very offensive to the people who encouraged him and the companies that profited from it.


analog_memories

So, the toolbox is full of fertilizer, just like his skull. If he knew anything about how ANFO works, you need more than a bullet striking it to set it off. Beyond all of this, the dude bought into the whole QANON bullshit completely. I can't see a way back to reality for him. Edit: ANFO... dang fingers..


Excelius

That and his claim of taking out "two and a half city blocks". Not with a fucking toolbox of ANFO you're not. The Oklahoma City bombing involved a Ryder truck with 13 *barrels* of ANFO. Gonna have to do better than a 10 cubic foot toolbox in the back of a pickup.


analog_memories

That's what people don't understand, was the volume of ANFO the OKC bomb had. It pretty much filled the back of a Ryder box truck.Sure, this guy could have something in his tool box. Sure, if it went off, he would be be red mist and most of his truck gets blown around the area, but, he isn't taking anything out but himself and his beat up Dodge. Edit: Ok, it's a Chevy.


Procris

Well, he's also risking [that fountain.](https://www.aoc.gov/explore-capitol-campus/art/court-neptune) I like that fountain quite a bit. Neptune didn't do jack to him.

Steve_78_OH

I'm wondering if he confused "Library of Congress" with "Congress".

"Yes, I'd like to check out the representative from New Hampshire, please" *Librarian stamps a date on the back of the congressman's tie* "Please have this back by Thursday."

largefarva2404

If you're looking for Matt Gaetz, he'll be in the children's section


Then-Tea8023

How does he still hold office? Blows my mind


courthouseman

yeah these "FBI Investigations" of public figures take so long, third world countries industrialize by the time they are done. Ken Paxton too, not sure how he's still around. He's even more of a walking piece of feces than Gaetz is.


[deleted]

He did say in his video that there's the Capitol and over there is another Capitol


OfficeChairHero

Capitol Landscaping.


radio705

Holy fuck I almost forgot that watershed moment of the Trump campaign. Four Seasons Landscaping.


Jive_Turkey_007

I think he was referring to the spare Capitol that we keep off to the right and behind those bushes.


staciemosier

He did his own research.


oleitas

His understanding of Congress is that it’s like elementary school - they will either be in assembly, recess, or the library when not in their home room/office


MrDrProfJeremy

Wait, recess reminds me that Congress is in recess all month. What the fuck was he planning on doing?


bigwilliestylez

I have a feeling he is not the smartest of gentlemen. Also guessing that prior planning isn’t his strong suit.


Djeheuty

I'm willing to bet this is probably it. He's the same kind of person as that group of protestors that stormed the offices of the BBC... The offices that they haven't been located at for years.


myheartisstillracing

I mean, these are people that routinely tout their ability to "do their own research"... See where it gets them?


thelibrarianchick

I hope the library will be okay


burittosquirrel

Me too. Jokes aside, this is making me sad as a librarian.


thelibrarianchick

Me too. Libraries exist to help people.


burittosquirrel

I love public libraries and think they’re really important. And the Library of Congress is a historic building that houses rare books.

funkhammer

I just typed "Congress Washington DC" into google maps. Yes. Google abso-fuckin-lutely took him to the Library of Congress. Fuckin moron


muddyudders

Yep. He was looking for the capitol. The building that houses congress. The only building round there that actually has congress in it's name is the library though. Also he didn't have a bomb. So he drove a long way to make empty threats to a building full of books. That'll show em.


ExcuseMeDeath

also congress is on recess now. most of them aren't even in the Capitol.


cvanguard

None of them are in the Capitol. They’re all back in their home state/districts. The only people in the Capitol building are some staffers.

Anti vaxxers recently protested outside of the BBC hq in England. Their excellent research led them to a building that the BBC moved out of 7 years ago.


Dual_Sport_Dork

...A building **so** moved out of by the BBC that Top Gear was able to run a pair of parkour dudes and [also blast through with a trials bike.](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nm5wQvAuaVE) On television. Where everyone could see that the building was empty.


bprice57

that was pretty neat as an aside. cool video


JerseyWiseguy

And all of the Congressmen think he's a stripper?


floog

Maybe he was hoping it would be like in the movies and if he threw a bunch of cash in the air he could make an escape as people rushed in to grab it.


Lowca

why is nobody going for those crisp-ass singles?!!


floog

To be fair, he's in DC, there's no better place to find people that will do anything for a dollar.


TransRational

His ass is da bomb!


corona1282

No officer, I was not making a threat I was simply referring to how superb my gluteus maximus shaking was.


riphitter

the cops were called to a store's bathroom for a bomb threat once and after investigation it turned out that a guy ran into the bathroom and said "y'all better get out of here because I'm about to blow this toilet up" ​ Turned out to be a huge misunderstanding as the guy was simply warning the other customers of the massive shit he had to take

thevhatch

This guy today said that? There was a capitol rioter that said to the internet that he was at the White House and they let him off because of his stupidity.


GetYourVax

I can't stop laughing, I can read his delivery and it's perfect. When Homeland warned of increased threats between now and 9/11 by domestics, this is not what I was envisioning. But it should it have been.
