They had plenty of opportunities to ask their followers to "just cool it" and please demonstrate in a peaceful manner. Do not destroy. Do not burn. Do not desecrate our flag. Respect law and order. Do not destroy public or private property. Do not threaten to kill anybody (especially a US President)> Did Hillary, Obama or any other Democrat official do any of that? NO. By their silence, they were encouraging the riots to continue. Obama even said "March On".
