Capitol riots: MAFS Jules Robinson’s breezy post about ‘the world at war’

Donald Trump supporters stormed the Capitol Building in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday in a futile attempt to stop confirmation of Joe Biden’s election win.

And as the world reacted in horror to the unprecedented assault on democracy, former Married At First Sight star Jules Robinson offered her thoughts in a breezy Instagram post.

The salon owner, 38, shared a smiling selfie in front of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and sent out ‘good vibes’ to her 368,000 followers as ‘war’ erupted in the U.S. 

‘Most of us are living our best life’: Former Married At First Sight star Jules Robinson shared a tone-deaf Instagram post about the world being ‘at war again’ after Donald Trump supporters stormed the Capitol Building in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday. She accompanied her insights with a smiling selfie taken in front of the Sydney Harbour Bridge

Reflecting on the comparatively stable political situation in Australia, Jules wrote: ‘The world at war again… and here Down Under most of us are living our best life despite even the unpredictable dreaded Covid-19 lurking around us.

‘Just want to show appreciation for our country, and how bloody lucky we are in this big island called #straya.’

‘Sending good vibes, empathy, health and peace to the world,’ she concluded, adding the hashtags #healtheworld and #goawaycovid19.

The response to her post was overwhelmingly positive, most likely because Jules has limited comments on all her uploads.

Jules’ insightful commentary comes after MAGA mobs and QAnon conspiracy theorists stormed the Capitol on Wednesday, occupying parts of the building for several hours, ransacking offices and waving the Confederate flag, after the president urged his supporters to ‘take back our country’ as Congress prepared to confirm Joe Biden’s electoral college victory. 

Biden’s victory was certified by Vice President Mike Pence at 3.41am, ending a nearly 15-hour saga which saw four people killed, including a woman shot by police.

Trump, who was banned from Twitter and Facebook in the aftermath of the violence he incited, eventually promised an ‘orderly transition’ but maintained his baseless claims of election fraud.

‘Even though I totally disagree with the outcome of the election, and the facts bear me out, nevertheless there will be an orderly transition on January 20,’ Trump said.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday said Trump had incited ‘sedition’ against the United States, and demanded the president’s removal from office.

She applied pressure to VP Mike Pence, urging him to invoke the 25th Amendment to declare Trump unfit for office and force him out.
