Huffington Post reporter S.V. Date, a senior White House correspondent, is clearly lacking a few brain cells.
He claims that the Capitol riot on January 6 was "1000 percent worse" than the September 11, 2001 attacks that left nearly 3,000 Americans dead.
How is that even comparable in the slightest??
Breitbart reports that Date was responding to a thread by Washington Examiner’s Byron York, who was attempting to explain how the left compares the two events.
“The 9/11 al Qaeda attacks killed roughly 3,000 people, brought down New York’s tallest skyscrapers, destroyed part of the Pentagon, crashed four passenger jetliners, and changed U.S. foreign policy for decades,” York said, explaining that the January 6 riot resulted in the “natural-causes death of one Capitol Police officer, the death of one rioter at the hands of police, the ‘acute amphetamine intoxication’ death of another rioter, and the natural causes deaths of two more.”
“Parts of the Capitol were ransacked, but not seriously enough that Congress could not meet and finish its work on the night of the riot. It was appalling, but nothing like September 11,” he added.

Date argued that the terrorists on 9/11 “never threatened the heart of the American experiment.”
“The 1/6 terrorists and Donald Trump absolutely did exactly that,” he said. “Trump continues that effort today.”
United 93 was intended to crash into the Capitol. You think January 6th was worse than that?

One commenter noted that flight United 93 would have crashed into the Capitol if not for the courageous passengers aboard the plane.
“You think January 6th was worse than that?” he asked Dáte, who replied, “1000 percent worse."
