The man captured in a viral photo taking a lectern from the U.S. House during Wednesday’s attack on the Capitol has been identified as a Parrish resident.
Adam Christian Johnson, 36, smiled and waved as he was caught on camera carrying what appeared to be U.S. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s lectern as he walked through the U.S. Capitol Building with other rioters on Wednesday. The podium bears the official seal of the speaker of the House.
The image, captured by chief Getty Images photographer Win McNamee, quickly circulated social media in the hours that followed, and numerous local residents were swift in recognizing and identifying him. An acquaintance confirmed his identity for the Bradenton Herald.
Johnson lives in Parrish with his wife and their five children. He is a stay-at-home father, who makes and sells furniture, while his wife is a doctor in Palmetto.
Can you imagine an Antifa rioter having the good looks and Chad personality to have a high income doctor as his wife while he stays home with his five kids and screws around online and occasionally loots Nancy Pelosi’s lectern?
This is like a Virgin vs. Chad cartoon come to life.
