So much for the United States of America being the greatest country in the world. The dramatic, and frankly appalling, scenes of rioters storming the Capitol building in Washington DC, a sacred bastion of American democracy, as they would not accept the election result have shocked viewers around the world.
An angry and violent mob of protesters stormed the House and Senate on Wednesday, interrupting the process to certify Joe Biden as the next president of the United States and sending lawmakers into a lockdown.
Absolutely wild scenes of pro-Donald Trump supporters tearing through offices, shattering windows, breaking doors and even sitting in the senate chamber showed how far America has drifted from its core values and trust in democratic processes.
Some commentators have said the angry mob should be labelled as terrorists. Others have questioned if law enforcement would have taken a harder or more aggressive tact if the protesters were black.
Even the big tech giants have had enough of Trump's lies.
The man who constantly cried "fake news" throughout his presidency at anything he didn't agree with has been silenced by Facebook and Twitter, with both social media platforms banning him from posting due to "severe violations".
"We believe the risks of allowing the President to continue to use our service during this period are simply too great," Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg said.
No matter where your politics lie, it's hard to imagine an Australian or state leader refusing to acknowledge they had lost and not conceding peacefully so as to ensure a smooth transition for the new leader to run the country.
And that's not what Trump has been. He hasn't led the people, he has divided them, as seen by the dramatic scenes broadcast across the world this week.
No matter what they are doing, a leader should unite people, bring them together and work towards making their country, workplace or sporting club a better place.
Seeing those scenes in the US truly makes you realise how good we have it here.
