Protesters stormed and occupied the U.S. Capitol building today to disrupt the electoral confirmation process. Was security better in Area 51?

The Area 51 raid had better security: The craziest memes from today

On Wednesday afternoon, pro-Trump protesters charged the U.S. Capitol. Congress was meeting there today to certify states’ election results. The Capitol was announced secured several hours later, but one woman died in the crossfire, according to a tweet from NBC News.

For a while, no one really knew exactly what was going down in the Capitol. Rioters were seen with weapons inside the building and the House floor was evacuated by police. Despite the day’s unforeseen, scary, and sad events, memes still poured in on Twitter. Many of the memes talked about the alleged lack of security at the Capitol and a potential second Area 51 raid.
