Candidate for Virginia Governor Compares Trump’s Election to 9/11

Tom Perriello, who is running in the Democratic primary to be the party’s nominee for governor of Virginia, compared the election of Donald Trump to the 9/11 terrorist attacks during a campaign event.

“The election of Donald Trump is a little bit like, you know, a political and constitutional September 11th for us, to be honest,” Perriello told the small crowd.

Perriello has fashioned himself as a progressive and is modeling his campaign off of Sen. Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign, in an attempt to upset establishment Democratic candidate Ralph Northam.
