Passengers from all over flew to DC this past week on American Airlines, Delta, Southwest and others to protest – and some to riot – at the Capitol. Many were maskless, some were kicked off flights. Others harassed Mitt Romney on the way to DC (and on the way home, harassed Lindsey Graham). Still others projected “TRUMP 2020” onto the ceiling of their aircraft. And others sat peacefully.
But Dallas-area realtor and radio host Jenna Ryan took a private plane. (HT: D.R.)

And she streamed the excitement of the trip from inside the plane as they prepared to depart the
US Trinity Aviation FBO in Denton, Texas.
Before events unfolded on Wednesday she laid out what was going to happen, she said “we’re going to be breaking windows” and would have to “deal with the tear bombs and gas bombs” and not only that she had to “dress warm” because it was cold old. And this was all because – with no self-awareness of having flown to DC on a private plane – “they’re taking everything” away from her.

She declared that “All these working class people taking the week off … We flew here for freedom. They want to steal the election, they want to steal everything…We the people are pissed off … We flew by a private jet, God wanted us here today. Trump is my president.”
And for her the storming of the Capitol wasn’t an embarrassment.
We just stormed the Capital. It was one of the best days of my life.

The good news of course is that by flying private, other passengers didn’t have to sit next to her in either direction. And some may revel in the fact that the woman who said she ‘answered the call of her President’ has been arrested and her social media stream is the evidence,
she posted a bathroom mirror selfie on Facebook with the caption: “We’re gonna go down and storm the capitol. They’re down there right now and that’s why we came and so that’s what we are going to do. So wish me luck.” She added: “This is a prelude going to war.”
In one now-deleted video, she filmed herself in a crowd going into the Capitol through the Rotunda entrance. She walked past broken windows, up some stairs, and said, “We are going to [expletive] go in here. Life or death, it doesn’t matter. Here we go.”
Then, she turned to the camera and added, “Y’all know who to hire for your realtor. Jenna Ryan for your realtor.”
By the time Ryan made it to the door of a building “clearly desecrated, with broken glass windows shattered, and security alarms sounding,” she yelled “U-S-A! U-S-A!” and “Here we are, in the name of Jesus!,” the complaint says.
Now she feels she’s being persecuted, and is asking President Trump for a pardon. (HT: D.R.)
“I would like a pardon from the President of the United States.”
Dallas area realtor Jenna Ryan is the 2nd D.C. riot participant to ask for one. She flew on a private jet to D.C. to “stop the steal.” FBI arrested her today. She says: I feel persecuted. pic.twitter.com/Rk4XCYVqX3

After all, she’s the real victim here.
