George Stephanopoulos said on Sunday that even though Hillary Clinton followers did not recognize the 2016 election as legitimate, they did not take the "same action" as Trump backers after the 2020 election.

In a roundtable discussion on "This Week," Stephanopoulos appeared to agree with his guest, CEO of Democracy For America, Yvette Simpson, when she declared that there was "no precedent" for the January 6th riots at the U.S. Capitol. The two were discussing a survey that showed that one-third of Americans felt violence against the government was "justified."

"I mean, this is purely in the Republican camp. The reality is, is even the poll suggested the Democrats agree that this was not about democracy. This is about ruining democracy, not protecting it," Simpson claimed.

"Twenty-five percent of Democrats said violence was acceptable in that poll," ABC Analyst Sarah Isgur countered. "In 2017, a third of Hillary Clinton voters said Donald Trump was not legitimately elected. You're saying this is unprecedented?"

Stephanopoulos interjected that Hillary Clinton supporters "did not take the same action."

Police arrested over 200 rioters in Washington, D.C., in January 2017 as riots followed immediately after President Trump's swearing-in ceremony. Four businesses suffered "significant damage" due to vandalism, six police officers underwent minor injuries, and one limousine was torched on Inauguration Day, NBC News reported back then.

Anti-Trump demonstrations erupted in New York, Seattle, Dallas, Chicago, and Portland, resulting in no less than one man being shot in Seattle, according to CNN. Liberal groups applauded the work of demonstrators, many of whom traveled from around the nation to rail against Trump's "illegitimate" election, inspiring the Women's March later that month.

According to the New York Times, what had started as a Facebook post right after Trump's election, the Women's March was the beginning of what organizers wished would be a sustained campaign of protest in Trump's America. It was at the Women's March in Washington, D.C. where Madonna told a crowd of thousands that she had "thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House."

Despite its violent and divisive rhetoric, numerous Democratic leaders and politicians attended the march, including Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren who told the crowd, "We can whimper, we can whine or we can fight back. Me, I'm here to fight back."

Hillary Clinton even expressed her support for the march in a tweet.

"We're very focused on January 6th," Isgur announced. "Again, I am all for every prosecution that's going on. There are 700 indictments out there. That is good. But when I look forward to 2024, I'm deeply concerned by these numbers because what it says to me is that people on both sides are not ready to accept the results of the next election."
