Politics 2016: 9/11 and 11/9–Worst Dates of this Century?

At a press screening tonight, I overheard a woman saying that there is a connection between the two worst dates of American history in this century: 9/11 due to devastating terrorists attack and 11/9, when Donald Trump was elected president of the US.


Challenged by a critic that the National Elections were actually held on 11/8, she quickly fired back that Trump was in fact declared winner–and Hillary Clinton conceded with a call to Trump–in the early hours of 11/9.


Scary idea, unless you are a conspiracy theorist, but still easier to remember. The specific dates of these two national nightmares, the aforementioned woman (who I did not recognize) claimed, are “logically” interconnected.
