Congressman Hank Johnson (D-Georgia) blasted President Trump at an Atlanta NAACP gathering on Tuesday, saying that America has an “authoritarian, anti-immigrant racist strongman in the nation’s highest office.”
Johnson continued ripping Trump, saying that Trump has “taken over” the Republican Party much like Adolf Hitler Y”MS took over in Germany prior to World War II.
He then went on to criticize Trump voters as “older, less educated, less prosperous and… [often] dying early” from recurring alcoholism.
“Donald Trump and his Make America Great Again followers…are older, less educated, less prosperous, and they are dying early. Their life spans are decreasing, and many are dying from alcoholism, drug overdoses, liver disease, or simply a broken heart.”
Earlier this week, Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz said comparing Trump to Hitler YM”S is ‘the cruelest form of minimization of the Holocaust’.
Dershowitz was reacting to several media figures who have compared President Trump to the Nazi party leader, as well as a report that shows 41% of Americans and 66% of millennials “don’t know what Auschwitz was.”
“Anybody who compares Trump or anybody else to Hitler essentially is a Holocaust denier,” Dershowitz said, “because what they’re saying, ‘well, there were no gas chambers, there was no Auschwitz, there no plan to kill six million Jews’.. By comparing it, they minimize it.”
