Watching this ridiculous farce play out is almost as good as watching the Three Stooges on TV.
A cockamamie report by the QAnon conspiracy group that a militia mob will storm the Capitol building in Washington DC on Thursday and restore Trump as president sent House Democrats running for the hills.
The scared Dems wrapped up their session in the House of Representatives on Wednesday night and will spend Thursday in hiding.

Their long-standing hatred of Trump has morphed into sheer fear of the man and his 74 million followers, most palpably, of course, the militia groups who have vowed to fight to the death in support of their president.
The Democrats are making fools of themselves because a second storming of the Capitol would be impossible. The area around the former bastion of democracy is guarded by 5,000 National Guard troops with M16 automatic rifles, metal and concrete barricades, and eight-foot-high fences strung with barbed wire.
None of that was in place on January 6 when Trump supporters seized the Capitol and ran amok inside, trashing the joint and leaving five people dead, including their own.
A member of the Democrat intelligence committee confirmed that the House would not be in session Thursday due to the threat.
“Obviously from a security standpoint, it’s better to have us scattering to the four winds,” said Democrat Rep. Jim Himes of Connecticut.
Even though, as he noted, “Capitol Hill is still an armed camp. There are very heavily armed, body-armored national guardsmen all over the place.”
But they’re running home anyway, these fearless ‘leaders’ of the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave.
The openly violent and Democrat-condoned Antifa (Anti-Fascist) group is calling for a worldwide day of chaos and destruction for March 6.
