This week, Democrat Rep. Keith Ellison compared Donald Trump to King George III of the United Kingdom during an interview on NPR. He says the two men are similar because of Twitter.
“I see it in general as a good thing to foster communication from the government, but I think it can be used in a very bad way because what he's doing through his Twitter account and in other ways is circumventing the whole system to intimidate people, to pack courts, to intimidate the press, all so that he can just run everything himself,” Ellison said.
Ellison, the deputy chair of the Democratic National Committee, went on to say that the United States fought a war of independence against King George III of Great Britain in the 18th century.
“We fought a war of independence against somebody, King George, who was trying to do that. This is really why I'm actually kind of concerned about his use of social media, not the fact that he uses it,” Ellison said.
It seems some Democrats are finally growing tired of comparing Trump to Adolf Hitler. Now, they've moved on to different, older tyrants — but the analogies are no less ridiculous. This is the speech of a sore loser. Nothing more, nothing less.
