Pamela Keith, a failed candidate for the Democrats in Florda's 18th Congressional District, tweeted on Saturday that the events of Sept. 11 2001 were 'not even close' to being as bad as those of Jan. 6 2021.
Keith goes on in her tweets to echo similar sentiments from those pushed on Saturday on MSNBC, saying that "after the last 5 years, I take stock that NOT ONCE on 9/11 or the days and months afterwards, did I fear for the survival of the nation, or our democracy," but that "the last 5 years have been a DYSTOPIAN HELL of watching our democracy implode."
