Former GOP Lawmaker Goes After RNC Chair For Avoiding Questions About Trump

Over the Veteran’s Day weekend, President Trump faced a lot of backlash because of the language he used on social media as well as on the campaign trail when he compared his opponents to “vermin.”

As expected, the Democrats quickly jumped on the comments and claimed Trump was channeling Hitler and Mussolini.

On Monday, former Congresswoman Liz Cheney jumped into the fray, calling out Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel for not condemning President Trump’s remarks.

From The Hill:

Former Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) ripped Republican National Committee (RNC) Chair Ronna McDaniel for dodging questions Sunday about former President Trump’s “vermin” comments, which Cheney described as “Nazi propaganda.”

“When @GOPChairwoman refuses to condemn the GOP’s leading candidate for using the same Nazi propaganda that mobilized 1930s-40s Germany to evil, it’s fair to assume she’s collaborating,” Cheney wrote in a post on X, formerly Twitter. “History will judge Ronna McDaniel and every republican who is appeasing this dangerous man.”

Pressed over the comments on multiple Sunday talk shows, McDaniel dodged reporters’ questions and said she would not comment on candidates and their messaging.

“I will say this, I know President Trump supports the veterans, our whole party supports our veterans. And I do think we’re at a very serious moment in our country,” she said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

During an MSNBC appearance Monday, presidential historian Jon Meacham linked Trump’s comments to the fascist dictators of the 1930s, saying “to call your opponent vermin, to dehumanize them, is to not only open the door, but to walk through the door toward the most ghastly kinds of crimes.”

In an earlier statement shared with The Hill, the Trump campaign railed against the criticism.

“Those who try to make that ridiculous assertion are clearly snowflakes grasping for anything because they are suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome and their sad, miserable existence will be crushed when President Trump returns to the White House,” it said.
