QUOTE OF THE DAY: Why DeSantis Is Exactly Like Hitler

Nikki Fried, Florida’s agriculture commissioner and a Democratic gubernatorial candidate, on Friday likened her state’s Republican governor to genocidal Nazi leader Adolf Hitler.

THE QUOTE

Speaking on a Florida public radio podcast Friday, Fried said, “Instead of listening and trying to govern with the people, [Ron DeSantis] is trying to govern over the people, and, you know, I’m sorry, I’m a student of history, too. I saw the rise of Hitler.”

  • “I have studied Hitler and how he got to power, you know, wanting his own militia,” she added, referring to DeSantis’ effort to establish a state guard under the governor’s control to help during public emergencies, much like similar groups in 22 other states.

Other conservatives whom liberals have recently compared to Hitler include former President Donald Trump, vaccine skeptics and moms.
