Howard Dean, former Vermont governor and head of the Democratic National Committee, has endorsed a candidate to head up the DNC. While supporting Pete Buttigieg for the job, Dean recounted a comparison about the election of Donald Trump:

Really? That’s something, even for Howard Dean.
@daveweigel This is your "jumping the shark" moment.

That's a bit much. I didn't vote for Trump, but people were shot & killed at Kent State, brutally beaten at Edmund Pettus Bridge. Come on. https://t.co/tzY40s7FTD

These people are desperate to live out the fantasy that they're fighting the civil rights movement. https://t.co/FrVVR83Isx

GTFO with this bullshit. People died at Kent State, risked their lives at Selma. Your candidate losing an election doesn't fucking compare. https://t.co/z9taKeu8AA

Somehow in Dean’s head, it does.
