Throughout Wednesday afternoon, as pro-Trump rioters occupied Capitol Hill and violently clashed with law enforcement, calls have grown for the resignation of President Donald Trump and Republicans who planned to object to the certifying of President-elect Joe Biden‘s Electoral College victory.

These calls from journalists, commentators, and Democratic politicians alike especially ramped up after Trump tweeted a taped statement in which he told the rioters to “go home.” They criticized his repeated claims the 2020 presidential election was “fraudulent” and statements that “We love you” and “You’re very special.”

Alongside Trump, the Republicans who people have been calling to resign the most are Sens. Josh Hawley (Mo.) and Ted Cruz (TX), for spearheading the effort to object to the tallying of the Electoral College votes, as well as House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (Calif.).

San Francisco voters have officially recalled extreme progressive Chesa Boudin. The San Francisco Chronicle noted the event as a “historic recall.”

“The election, closely-watched across the nation, came after months of intense debate over criminal justice and public safety in San Francisco” writes the Chronicle.

The voters are “frustrated with a dysfunctional city” and horrendous crime rates. They saw “an elected official unwilling to acknowledge he was at least partly responsible for the problems – and cast him out.”

Boudin received an overwhelming 60% vote in favor of recall. San Francisco voters “embrace being labeled as progressive” but “decided they wanted a more traditional crime-fighter as district attorney and delivered what will be viewed nationally as a blow to efforts to reshape criminal justice” adds the Chronicle.
