Taliban fighters entered Afghanistan's presidential palace, sparking memories of the Jan. 6 insurrection.
Armed militants went inside the Afghan government's headquarters Sunday after President Ashraf Ghani fled the country, and a Taliban spokesman said talks on forming a new government would begin soon.
Photos of the militants reminded many of the Donald Trump supporters who stormed into the U.S. Capitol to stop the certification of Joe Biden's election win.
What the Taliban accomplished in Afghanistan is exactly what the American Taliban (MAGA/the GQP) tried to do here on January 6th.— Brett Meiselas (@Brett Meiselas) 1629061440.0

@AJEnglish This is somewhat similar to the incident happened in US in January under the leadership of Donald Trump.— Praveen Parashar (@Praveen Parashar) 1629055932.0
@AJEnglish @ToluseO They are more respectful than the ones who entered the US Capitol on 1/6.— joan o'reilly (@joan o'reilly) 1629057835.0
