There’s stupid, and then there’s MAGA stupid.
“We won big with the poorly educated,” Donald Trump famously said on the 2016 campaign trail. “I love the poorly educated!” And he should, because he’s literally nothing without his willfully obtuse base (“I like the way he talks because he talks like me!” said an Arizona MAGAt at the Trump ego rally Saturday night, and yes, it IS actually possible to cringe with your entire body). Aside from continuing the delusion that Trump won in 2020, he’s got QAnon fans who think JFK Jr is still alive and tend to use the term “colored people” when denying their racism.
So it’s not surprising that the Brain Trust which assembled for Trump’s January 6th rally and then used the Capitol as a toilet to set on fire got big mad when they realized they left some of their toys behind. But they really have taken the MAGA mouthbreathing to a new level now, because it’s not just that they realized they forgot to take their weapons, they called NANCY PELOSI’S OFFICE to see if there’s a Lost & Found box under her desk or something.
Some Capitol rioters were apprehended because they had the brilliant notion of calling the "Lost and Found," and leaving their personal info, hoping to retrieve items (phones, purses) they had left on site on Jan 6. This is, IMO, a pretty remarkable statement of their ignorance.

Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD), who sits on the House Select Committee and was also an impeachment manager the second time around, told Business Insider all about the calls, which I’m sure was all kinds of comedy gold in those dark hours after the Capitol was cleared. They left their real names and phone numbers. It’s astonishing, yet not at all shocking. These are DUMB PEOPLE.
Tucker: Protesters called Nancy Pelosi’s office line looking for items they had left inside the building.. Is that the behavior of people who believe they are trying to overthrow the US government? These were Americans who came to complain loudly about what politicians were doing pic.twitter.com/JLWnoGxn0j

Yeah, Tucky, I feel you. I mean, if I schlepped all the way to Washington to dismantle democracy by trying to assassinate the Vice President and the Speaker of the House, I’d probably be a little miffed if I accidentally left all of my bear spray behind. Hey, that stuff isn’t cheap!
Hello, USCP? So embarrassing, but I believe I may have misplaced my phone on a recent trip the Capitol. Is there like, a lost and found?
Where? Oh, um, I think I left it in speakerpelosisoffice
Yes, Speaker Pelosi’s Office
Uh huh. January 6
Thanks so much for looking into it!

These geniuses were already calling up on January 7th asking for their stuff. Can you imagine? “Yeah…um…I was there yesterday? And while I was going through Speaker Pelosi’s private papers, I think I dropped my taser and my ID? Could you, like, look under her desk?”
The stupid, it burns white-hot with the intensity of a billion suns. These are the same people who teased the kids in the gifted and talented program in middle school because being smart isn’t as nearly as cool as being a sheep shitting all over the Capitol floor.
Woman at Trump rally today was asked what she likes the most about Trump. She says that “he’s a godly man.” Husband says, “I like the way he talks because he talks like me.” pic.twitter.com/U3lfl7YU93

Please, I implore you to vote for smart people. The willfully obtuse poorly educated minority in this country have had their fun, but the Trump Show is over and it’s time for all of them to go home. Just make sure they have all of their weapons first.
That's actually what happened.
Some of these nitwits called the Capitol "Lost and Found",… looking for stuff they lost during the riot.
And that's how they got caught. pic.twitter.com/mRYCadUlDr
