Former Vermont governor Howard Dean compared President Trump’s election to the Kent State shootings while speaking at an event for DNC chair candidate Pete Buttigieg.

“This is your Edmund Pettus Bridge. This is your Kent State,” Dean said he told students after Trump’s election, referring to the 1970 Kent State shootings which left four people dead.

Dean went on to call New York Sen. Chuck Schumer’s endorsement of Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison “the kiss of death.” Ellison has faced questions over his ties to radical figures like Nation of Islam leader and notorious anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan.
