Another Low Blow: Dem Rep. Clyburn Compares Trump To Hitler

Democrats keep trying to go as low as humanly possible with their insults about President Donald Trump.
During an interview Sunday on CNN, House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn compared Trump to Adolf Hitler and other murderous dictators, including Italian dictator Benito Mussolini.
"I don't think he plans to leave the White House," Clyburn said of Trump. "He doesn't plan to have fair and unfettered elections. I believe that he plans to install himself in some kind of emergency way to continue to hold on to office."
Clyburn made a disturbing comparison to Mussolini after he said during a PBS interview released on Friday comparing Trump to Hitler.
On Sunday, Clyburn said Trump was more akin to Mussolini and that Russian President Vladimir Putin "is Hitler."
The standard response from Democrats is to blame President Donald Trump for everything bad and give him zero credit for anything good that he does.
Earlier this month, Clyburn got called out so badly for his hypocrisy that he was left stumbling and struggling to find his words.
During an interview on Fox News, anchor Bret Baier pressed House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D, S.C.) about Trump’s role in several reforms that impact the country’s African-American community.
Clyburn tried attacking Trump’s executive order on police reform, which called for a ban on chokeholds and created funding for key training initiatives.
Clyburn said the order did not go “far enough,”
“I think that what we’ve got to do is attack this culture that all of us know exists,” Clyburn said. “This is institutional. It was built upon two pillars that we seem not to want to deal with. One being white people came to this country of their own free will, who came here in search of freedom, running away from tyranny. The experiences of black people who came here against their will, chained, shackled and enslaved. And these two divergent pillars are the institutions of, in this country were based upon them—healthcare delivery, education, law enforcement — all built upon them.”
Baier then played a video of Republican South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott, who is African-American, praising the Trump administration for funding historically black schools, creating opportunity zones, and signing the First Step Act.
Clyburn tried saying “none of that is true,” and Baier made it pay for it.
“None of that’s true?” Baier pushed back.
Clyburn admitted Trump “signed” the First Step Act, but said it was written by Democrats and suggested that Trump hadn’t read most of it.
“But Congressman, he did it,” Baier said.
“I know better …” said Clyburn.
“I mean, the administration did it. It wasn’t the Obama administration that did it … It was the Trump administration with Congress,” Baier shot back.
“I didn’t come here to argue with you,” Clyburn said. “But you can argue it if you want to. It’s just not true, and that’s not the only thing that this president says that’s just not true.”
“Ok, I understand,” said Baier. “But you’re not giving the Trump administration any credit for the things that Senator Tim Scott has said it should get credit for.”
“Absolutely not,” Clyburn insisted. “I’m not, because he doesn’t deserve it. I’ll give anybody credit who deserves it.”
