At the White House, @PressSec has arrived for her first briefing since Dec. 15.

She has begun by condemning the violence yesterday.

She spoke for two minutes, drew a distinction between rioters and other protesters there, then left. She did not take questions.

"What we saw yesterday was a group of violent rioters undermining the legitimate first amendment rights of the many thousands who came to peacefully have their voices heard in our nation's capital," she said.

"Those who are working in this building are working to ensure an orderly transition of power. Now it is time for America to unite, to come together, to reject the violence that we have seen. We are one American people under God."

One minute, 51 seconds long. 284 words. Zero questions.
