The mainstream media went into a hissy fit earlier this week when Donald Trump used the word “vermin” to describe his political enemies. According to them, he was “echoing Nazis” by using the word.
Give me a break. This attack reeks of desperation at a time when the ongoing Israel-Hamas war is exposing the anti-Semitism within the Democratic Party.
Naturally, when one of Trump’s GOP rivals, Vivek Ramaswamy, appeared on CNN Wednesday, host Abby Phillip must have thought that Ramaswamy would agree with the Nazi comparison and decided to ask him about it.
“That language, they live like vermin, do you believe that that is, as your Republican colleague Chris Christie has said, neo-Nazi rhetoric?” Phillip asked.
“This is a classic mainstream media move, pick some individual phrase of Donald Trump, focus on literally that word without actually interrogating the substance of what’s at issue,” Ramaswamy responded.
“The word was chosen for a reason,” Phillip insisted without evidence.
“We’re in the middle of a cultural war in this country. Well, you know what? It’s actually describing a series of behaviors. You have Antifa and other related groups that have been burning down cities for the last three years in this country,” Ramaswamy shot back.
