Now that Americans have had time to process the images that came out of the Capitol last week, there are a few moments that stand out in the media.
What may be the crowd's favorite is pictures and videos of a man the media is referring to as the "Qanon Shaman." If you are out of the loop and don't know which one he was just look for the tall shirtless burly man with his face covered in war paint and a large fur hat with horns.
Then there's the snapshot of a man sitting with one boot propped up on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's desk and a photo of another man smiling and waving as he carries a lectern.
The happy-go-lucky looking man with the lectern has been identified as Adam Johnson and his lawyer had a pretty grim assessment of the situation.
A lawyer for the Trump supporter caught on camera grinning and waving while toting around House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s lectern during Wednesday’s rioting at the Capitol told reporters in an amazingly frank interview Monday that the snapshot of his client presents a problem.
“You have a photograph of our client in a building, unauthorized to be there, with what appears to be a podium or a lectern, I’m not exactly sure which one it is called. But that’s what we have,’’ said Dan Eckhart, a lawyer for suspect Adam Johnson, according to Twitter posts of the footage.
He then put everything out on the table.
“But yeah, that would be a problem. I’m not a magician,’’ he said. “So yeah, we’ve got a photograph of our client in what appears to be inside a federal building or inside the Capitol with federal property.’’
Johnson has since been released on $25,000 bail.
