Donald Trump Compares America to Nazi Germany, Twitter Goes Wild

One user asks, “Help me understand, in this bizarrely troubling ‘Nazi Germany’ metaphor Trump used, is he Hitler or a persecuted Jew facing the Holocaust?”

President-elect Donald Trump is fuming that the intelligence community allowed a Russian dossier with “golden shower” claims to end up in the hands of media members and, as a result, took to Twitter to ask if we are living in Nazi Germany.

Obviously, Twitter went wild.

One user asked, “Help me understand, in this bizarrely troubling ‘Nazi Germany’ metaphor Trump used, is he Hitler or a persecuted Jew facing the Holocaust?”

Another said, “Make no mistake: This is a shot at our intel community. Think about that. He just compared it to Nazi Germany.”

Many users made jokes, but others took the tweet more seriously. One user wrote, “Making inaccurate Holocaust references is inherently revisionist. This is not Nazi Germany. By saying so you reject what actually happened.”

Check out some of the reaction:

This all started when BuzzFeed sent the Internet into a frenzy on Tuesday when it published a collection of memos accusing Trump of improper contact with Russian officials — and alleging the former reality TV star arranged “golden showers” with prostitutes in a Moscow hotel room.

Trump and his team have repeatedly called the information “fake news.”
