Perkins Coie senior counsel Peter Tracey has gone viral as #guyonporch for his offended denunciation of Trump supporters marching towards the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday.
Tracey’s profane outburst from his Washington, D.C., entrance porch was captured by a movie crew for Norwegian journalist Veronica Westhrin, based on Barred in DC, the Washington Post and Above the Law.
“Get out of town,” Tracey yelled. “F- – -ing treasonous pieces of s- -t!”
The video exhibits a Black lady in a automotive agreeing with Tracey that the protesters have destroyed the town. She additionally agreed when Tracey stated that, if Black Lives Matter supporters have been marching to the Capitol, there could be “tanks rolling down Pennsylvania Avenue.”
“It makes me teary-eyed,” the girl stated as she wiped away tears. “We’d die” if supporters of Black Lives Matter tried the identical factor, she stated.
Tracey, 60, spoke with Barred in DC and the Washington Post.
“I think the issue … needs to be focused on the disparity between the way that people of color would have been treated had they done the same thing versus the kid glove treatment that these guys got yesterday,” Tracey informed Barred in DC. “I think that tells you all you need to know about the fundamental problems in this country.”
Tracey informed the Washington Post he has only one remorse about his outburst.
“I could’ve professed it a little less profanely,” he stated.

Apparently it went viral after I posted in on my Instagram @westhrin So right here it’s, Twitter! #guyonporch #womanincar pic.twitter.com/bmMUS48Blz
