The Capitol building became a warzone last week.

As the plans for Biden's presidency begin to unfold, tensions amongst the pro-Trump community escalated to shocking levels.

While it's taken weeks for the president himself to concede to Biden...

His supporters have been fueling the flames behind his various election fraud allegations.

And last Wednesday, those tensions reached a breaking point.

On January 6th, during which a joint session of Congress convened to formally count the Electoral College votes and certify Joe Biden’s election win, lawmakers were forced to shelter in place and evacuate as pro-Trump rioters broke into the U.S Capitol Building.

Hundreds of rioters forced their way into the prestigious building...

Breaking windows, doors, and furniture along with chants of "stop the steal!"

A group of rioters even broke into Pelosi's office...

With one posing in her chair with his feet up on the desk.

From this, more violence ensued...

As rioters clashed with the few police officers in presence.

The scenes shocked people all over the globe...

And the world watched on, transfixed, as more and more rioters continued to spill into the Capitol and clash with police.

It quickly emerged that one female rioter had been shot dead by police...

However, details surrounding the other 4 fatalities remain unclear. "One adult female and 2 adult males appear to have suffered from separate medical emergencies on or around Capitol grounds," Contee said, "which resulted in their deaths." Later, it was reported that another person had also died.

From the get-go, there were calls for Trump to intervene.

The president was repeatedly urged to appear on national television to order his supporters to stand down.

He instead issued a series of tweets, from his official account which has now been suspended from all social media platforms...

Where he reminded the rioters that the police and law enforcement was "on our side," and to "remain peaceful."

Hours after his supporters had stormed the Capitol, however, Trump finally released a video telling them:

"Go home, we love you, you’re very special."

Photographs and videos of Wednesday's scenes continue to circulate online...

Many of which also show the aftermath of the siege.

The videos and images have been quick to go viral on Twitter...

And show the extent of the damage that was done within the building.

Now, some of the perpetrators of this horrific crime have already been brought to justice.

Several arrests have already been made, with key suspects being identified via video footage from the scene.

Many weren't too hard to spot, given their choice of riot gear.

From CEOs to retail employees...

There seems to have been a whole array of attendees at the riots.

But one daughter, Helena, was shocked to see her mother on new video footage from the riots.

Twitter

She told Teen Vogue how it was very hypocritical of her mom to be attending what were supposed to be "protests" when she wouldn't let Helena attend BLM protests back in the summer.

She said this:

Twitter

"I was told by my mother that I wasn't allowed to go because she believed BLM was a violent organization."

She continued:

"[My mother] ended up going to [what became a] violent storming of the Capitol, harassing a woman, and getting punched in the face," she continued, "but when I went to peaceful protests, nothing happened to me."

​And much to her dismay, the video footage went viral online.

But Helena couldn't resist making sure her mom was outed after she had chosen to be less understanding with the BLM protests. She could clearly see her mom, Therese, aunt Annie Lorenz, and uncle Richard Lorenz, who was standing in a large group of white people surrounding a Black woman. A scuffle ensued but it was difficult to see who it was between.

After watching it, she explained her feelings...

"My initial reaction was more like, 'Oh my gosh, I was right. I was actually right about them being there,'" Helena told BuzzFeed. "It was very surreal because it was an insane video, first of all, and then it was the revelation that, Oh, that's my mother. That's her."

So of course she wanted to further call her out online.

She posted this above tweet...

And then clarified that it actually was her mom in the video.

Big yikes. Imagine this being your mom? I would die of embarrassment.
