Thousands of National Guardsmen were forced to vacate congressional grounds and are now taking their rest breaks outside and in nearby parking garages. This was after two weeks of sleepless nights protecting the nation’s capital.
One unit, which had been resting in the Dirksen Senate Office building, was abruptly told to vacate the facility on Thursday, according to one Guardsman.
The group was forced to rest in a nearby parking garage without internet reception, with just one electrical outlet, and one bathroom with two stalls for 5,000 troops, the person said, Politico reported. And there’s no heat.
Yesterday dozens of senators and congressmen walked down our lines taking photos, shaking our hands and thanking us for our service. Within 24 hours, they had no further use for us and banished us to the corner of a parking garage …

This is also after everyone was vetted out of fear they were Trump supporters.
It’s a big difference from the way they were treated under Donald J. Trump. They’re demoralized.

I STILL haven’t heard whether or not Dan Crenshaw has said anything. Others stepped up.
What a joke! Where were these guys four years ago when we needed them? Lesson: Let the Left win or we’ll burn your cars, houses, businesses and attack you in the streets.
The true colors of the dems/progs/commies didn’t take long to show. Once they were done with the display of the troops guarding the ever so newly popular illegitimate potus, they discarded them to a parking garage. Sorta like when you’re done with a toy, it goes to the closet to only be used again when needed.
This is gonna be a very bumpy ride with Val Jarrett/Susan Rice pulling the strings of the puppet ChinaJoe.
Democrats in general have a theme its called use, abuse and get rid of ASAP. Message to Governors.. need to call your Troops home without delay.
So this is how Democrats thank The Guard for protecting them?
This is not a one time event. This is how Democrats view our military.
