The Netroots Nation Annual Conference has been around for over a decade. It’s widely considered the largest annual conference for progressives, bringing in thousands of attendees from across the world. Its main purpose is to bring in young activists trying to learn the ropes of politics, including several bloggers, raw journalists, and potential future politicos.
This year it is being held in Atlanta, Georgia between August 10-13. Among those in attendance include Minnesota Democratic Representative Keith Ellison, who also serves as deputy chairman of the Democratic National Committee, and California Congresswoman Maxine Waters, who also plays a large role behind Nancy Pelosi in the DNC.
Ellison erupts in fury
As reported by The Daily Caller on Friday, Ellison hashed out during the conference using what some have since considered blatantly deranged remarks by comparing President Trump to North Korean Dictator Kim Jong Un, saying the POTUS isn’t as responsible as Jong Un.
