Hello, and welcome to ATP’s, Really Dumb Things They Said. I’m Barry Nussbaum.
The HuffPost used to be the Huffington Post, is an American news aggregator with various blogs and international editions. When you hear what one of the reporters said you may never want to read anything they publish ever again.
HuffPost reporter S.V. Date is the senior White House correspondent at the HuffPost. He originally responded to a detailed threat by the Washington Examiner’s, Byron York, who attempted to add some perspective to the left’s desire to compare 9/11 and January 6th.
Here’s what Mr. York said, “The 9/11 al-Qaeda attacks killed roughly 3,000 people, brought down New York’s largest skyscrapers, destroyed part of the Pentagon, and crashed four passenger jetliners. They changed U.S. foreign policy for decades.”
York explaining that the January 6th riot resulted in the “natural causes death of one Capitol police officer, the death of one rioter at the hands of the police, the acute amphetamine intoxication death of another rioter, and the natural causes death of two more.” That was it.
However, Date argued the 9/11 terrorists never threatened the heart of the American experiment. The January 6th terrorist and Donald Trump absolutely did exactly that and he continues, “Trump continues that effort today,” and when Date was asked to clarify if he really thought January 6th was worse than 9/11. His reply was, “One thousand percent worse.”
Meaning it’s a hundred times worse than 9/11. He is at least, thus far, the dumbest reporter to go on public record ever.
