Former RNC chairman Michael Steele mocked a Trump terrorist Saturday for complaining about detention conditions after he was jailed for participating in a deadly attack on the U.S. Capitol.
According to NBC News, a former Trump political representative charged with fighting the police during the Capitol riot told a federal judge that his prison cell was full of insects.
"I wonder if there is a place I could stay in custody that does not have cockroaches crawling everywhere while I try to sleep," said violent insurgent Federico Klein, according to the report. "I did not get much sleep."
Michael Steele mocked Klein's complaints and told him to "get over it".
“Oh poor baby. I feel so bad for you Cockroaches? That's a shame, "said the former RNC chairman during an interview on MSNBC. "Talk to the family who live in parts of our inner cities to cockroaches every day and we'll talk. Get over it."

Klein, who complained about the conditions of his detention, was caught on camera during the January 6th attack in which police officers wearing protective shields were forcibly attacked.
According to NBC News, court documents allege he "forcibly pushed the shield into an officer's body to break the police line."
Trump terrorists should be punished to the fullest extent of the law
What happened in the U.S. Capitol on January 6th and was suggested by Donald Trump shouldn't be swept under the carpet. In fact, those who participated in the terrorist attack should be punished to the fullest extent of the law.
It should be made clear to everyone involved – and to everyone who instigated the insurrection, including the former president – that this behavior will not be tolerated in the United States of America.
If these terrorists are not held accountable, only further attacks on the United States will be launched.
