CNN's Jake Tapper called the throngs of protesters surrounding the Capitol building an attempt at a coup.
"We're watching an attempt at sedition. We're watching an attempt at a bloodless coup in the states, Trump supporters stopping the constitutional process, the counting of electors," he said.
"It's an absolutely shameful, disgusting situation that we're witnessing here," Tapper continued, slamming the President for encouraging protests by refusing to accept the election results.
