At one point in the not-so-distant past, the Democrats were patting themselves on the back for their restraint. Michelle Obama was one of the top protagonists in this campaign, famously stating “when they go low, we go high” – a remark that was meant to paint the Republican Party as some sort of turgid muckraking factory who only know how to pump out vile vitriol.
In the years after Obama dropped her now-infamous soundbite, we’ve learned that this isn’t true at all. The Democrats have been inexorably awful in their assessments of Trump and the GOP, and often in disgusting and unforgivable ways. (Just take a look at all of the incest jokes they make if you need a reminder of what we’re talking about).
In 2020, this same tawdry trend has continued, with former Vice President Joe Biden now comparing Donald Trump to one of the most infamous men in all of history.
“He’s sort of like [Joseph] Goebbels,” Biden told MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle. “You say the lie long enough, keep repeating it, repeating it, repeating it, it becomes common knowledge.”
Goebbels was the minister of propaganda for Adolf Hitler’s Third Reich, and used a technique that Hitler coined the “Big Lie,” which involved repeating a major falsehood until the public came to believe it was true.
Trump’s team wasn’t going to take the insult lightly.
The comment comes as Biden has pushed back against attacks on the campaign trail from the president, who is looking to paint the former vice president as a socialist.
“Rather than launching preposterous accusations against the President, Joe Biden and his team should answer for inviting notorious anti-Semites Tamika Mallory and Linda Sarsour to speak at the Democrat National Convention,” Ken Farnaso, deputy national press secretary for the Trump campaign, told FOX News in a statement. “Biden is desperately trying to distract Americans from his disastrous record and socialist policies.”
This is far from the first time that Donald Trump has been likened to members of the Nazi party, and the consistency of the left’s attacks on the sitting President tends to say more about the Democrats than they do about Trump.
