Clyburn: Before the Election, I Saw ‘a Replay of What Happened in Nazi Germany’

On Wednesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Wolf,” Representative James Clyburn (D-SC) stated that before the election he saw a repeat of what happened in Nazi Germany. He added that Adolf Hitler was elected and didn’t become a dictator until people were influenced by his “foolishness” and that too many people are influenced by President Trump’s “foolishness.”

Clyburn said, “We remember from our studies what happened in the 1930s in Germany. I told a business group down in Hilton Head several weeks before the election that what I saw coming was a replay of what happened in Nazi Germany. The fact of the matter is, Hitler was elected as Chancellor of Germany. He did not become a dictator until later, when people began to be influenced by his foolishness. We just elected a president, and he’s got a lot of foolishness going on, and I’m afraid that too many people are being influenced by that foolishness. And so, what we’ve got to do now is step up and say, ‘We are not going to allow any one person to misuse an election and to abuse the process and turn this country back on its head.'”
