A shameless MAGA rioter who smoked weed in Senator Jeff Merkley's office last Wednesday, posed with cops afterward and claims his Bumble profile has 'blown up' since he uploaded the photos there is planning to return to the Capitol for another protest and has still not been arrested.
Brandon Fellows, 26, drove from upstate New York to DC in a mini-bus where he sleeps to attend the riot last week after Trump tweeted about his rally that was planned for the same day.
He was emboldened by the President's claims and along with thousands of others, stormed the Capitol, breaking windows and threatening Capitol cops as they made their way inside.
Once in the building, he got to into Merkley's office where he put his feet on the table and took two drags from a joint that was handed to him by another rioter.
All of this went on Snapchat, along with videos that he has since shared on Instagram where he chats jovially with the cops, asks them for directions and even poses with them.
Since the riot, he has given an interview to Bloomberg where he says his Bumble dating profile has 'blown up' with attention because of the interest in his Capitol riot pictures.
Despite the fact that people are being arrested every day for their role in the riot, he says he plans to go back to DC again, at least once before Inauguration Day, to stage another protest.
In an interview with Bloomberg that was published on Tuesday, he said: 'I have no regrets. I didn't hurt anyone, I didn't break anything. I did trespass though, I guess.
'Did I think I was going to get in trouble? Uh no.
'Obviously Trump started a movement in a way, but I think we started something even bigger by doing this.
'Do you think I'm going to go to federal prison? I was told federal prison is not fun.'
