Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-Texas, issued a stern admonishment Sunday of a House Democrat who recently compared President Trump to Adolf Hitler and described his supporters as being alcohol-addicted and prone to drug abuse.
In a two-minute video the freshman GOP lawmaker chastised Rep. Hank Johnson, D-Ga., for the combative speech he delivered last week.
“President Trump is a lot of things, but he’s not Hitler. He didn’t kill millions of people. He didn’t star a world war. He doesn’t have any concentration camps,” Crenshaw said. “And to accuse him of being Hitler is intellectually dishonest, and frankly, a huge insult to the millions of Jews who died under Nazi Germany.”
“If you want to insult President Trump, at least you’re picking on someone your own size — at least you’re picking on somebody who can fight back” he continued. “But you went on to insult, degrade, and demean tens of millions of Americans who voted for him. This is a cowardly form of politics.”
