Huffington Post senior White House correspondent S.V Dáte claimed the Capitol Hill Riot was “1000 times worse” than 9/11.
“Trump Apology Corps in full apology mode,” claimed Dáte, responding to conservative commentator Byron York. “The 9/11 terrorists and Osama bin Laden never threatened the heart of the American experiment. The 1/6 terrorists and Donald Trump absolutely did exactly that. Trump continues that effort today.”
“This attempt to whitewash what happened that day is shameful,” continued Dáte. “9/11 was an act of war done by foreigners. 1/6 was an attack on our republic — an attempt to END OUR DEMOCRACY — committed by supposed Americans, including the sitting president.”
After a user asked Dáte whether he believed January 6th was worse than United Flight 93’s attempt to crash into the capitol, Dáte responded with: “1000 percent worse.”
