I recently learned there was a Chuck Norris lookalike at the DC Capitol riots. It wasn’t me and I wasn’t there. There is no room for violence of any kind in our society. I am and always will be for Law and Order.

“Chuck remains on his range in Texas where he has been with his family,” the rep added.

As previously reported, last week a “Save America” rally was held in Washington, D.C. where Trump spoke to supporters and said he would walk with them to the Capitol to “cheer on our brave senators and congressmen and women” challenging his loss to President-elect Joe Biden.
The rally eventually turned into a riot, with video surfacing of supporters fighting Capitol Hill police to get into the building. The violence has led to the deaths of five people.
