Dan Helmer is a Democrat running for congress in Virginia. He is a veteran and that’s great but that might be the only positive aspect of his character. In a new ad, he compares President Trump to Osama Bin Laden.

Dem Congressional Candidate Compares Trump to Osama bin Laden: Greatest Threat to Democracy ‘Lives in the White House’
Democratic congressional candidate Dan Helmer released a campaign ad on Wednesday that compared President Donald Trump to Osama bin Laden.
“After 9/11, the greatest threat to our democracy lived in a cave,” Helmer said over images of the al-Qaeda leader. “Today, he lives in the White House.”
“No one, even the president, is above the law,” Helmer added.
Helmer is running in the Democratic primary to see who will challenge Republican Rep. Barbara Comstock for Virginia’s 10th Congressional District. The primary is scheduled for June 12.
Helmer is trailing behind several other Democratic candidates vying to take on Comstock. He and other Democrats in the primary have targeted front-runner state Sen. Jennifer T. Wexton for accepting corporate donations.
Here’s the ad:
Any candidate who would make this ad does not deserve to represent the people of Virginia. Or any other state, for that matter.
