Michigan US Senator Debbie Stabenow says her experience inside the US Capitol building, which was stormed by protesters Wednesday, seemed like something out of a movie. She says they weren’t really aware what was happening outside, until they were ushered off the Senate floor through a tunnel into a different building on the Capitol complex. She talks about the experience and the need to heal the country moving forward with WEMU's Lisa Barry.
She describes seeing a United States flag flying over the US Capitol that was brought down and replaced with a flag that said "Trump." Senator Stabenow says that is not America, adding, "We are not a dictatorship."
Senator Stabenow says we’ve got work to do as a country and believes we need to be able to come together, and while we still disagree, realize that we are not enemies.
