Newly-elected Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chair Tom Perez compared the administration of President Donald Trump to the Jim Crow era and the “mid-19th century” at the Latino Political Power Summit on Tuesday.
Perez compared his feelings on the current era to the landing of a plane and instructions from flight attendants to turn back clocks. “I feel so frequently today like we should be setting our clocks back to Jim Crow. I feel so frequently like we should be setting our clocks back to the mid-19th century, because this is a know-nothing era.”
Perez, the ‘establishment’ candidate in a hotly contested DNC race, began a sprint to the left immediately following his victory. A day after he won the DNC election, Perez peddled the conspiracy theory that Russia and the Trump campaign “rigged” the 2016 presidential election.
