WASHINGTON, D.C. — After last week’s deadly domestic terror attack on the U.S. Capitol, authorities in charge of next week’s inauguration of Joe Biden as the 46th President of the United States are reportedly hyperfocused on the security surrounding the event. It’s quite logical after a violent uprising, incited by the soon-to-be-former president, to have an eye on what it will take to prevent another such deadly event from taking place. According to several sources with knowledge of the situation, D.C. officials are looking at several ways to discourage angry, violent MAGA cult members from carrying out an attack on Inauguration Day.
Some of the discussions being had are around which venue to use for the purpose of administering the oath of office to Biden and his Vice President, Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA). After watching thousands of angry Trump supporters storm the capitol, officials are telling news outlets they understand it might be necessary to not hold a public ceremony, lessening the chances of a terror attack while either Biden or Harris are taking their oath. What they’re looking for is a place that would “naturally discourage” Trump supporters from even setting foot on the grounds.
“There are places that serve as, sort of, nature’s barriers to certain predators. When it comes to venue security, some of the same rules apply,” D.C Metro Police Deputy Captain Skip Malloy told reporters at a press conference discussing the logistics of next week, “and as such, we’ve started to look for and identify businesses and other establishments that might naturally discourage Trump supporters from even showing up.”
It didn’t take long for the powers that be to zero-in on a school for the site of the inauguration. Republicans, particularly Trumpian ones, have long decried education as a tool of liberal indoctrination. However, to be as sure as possible that Trump supporters stay clear of the venue, Malloy says that a specific kind of classroom is what’s being most seriously considered.
“They’re thinking a science classroom would be kind of pitch perfect, really. It would be like building a room out of kryptonite to keep Superman out,” Malloy explained. “There are few things that repulse a Trumper more than scientific fact. After that, there’s mathematical fact and just plain old, every day fact. They even hate fax machines.”
Joe Biden will be sworn-in as the 46th President of the United States at noon on January 20th, 2021.
