New Jersey Democratic Sen. Cory Booker compared Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen to a Nazi, saying she lied to protect Donald Trump and in doing so was like Nazis who defended themselves by claiming they were just doing their jobs.
Booker made the accusation during an appearance this week on “The Breakfast Club,” a syndicated radio show. He said Nielsen was lying during Senate testimony earlier in the week about not remembering that Donald Trump during a White House meeting with senators had called Haiti, El Salvador, and African Nations “shithole” countries, and that she saw lying to defend Trump as part of her job.
If you come after Jews, if you come after Muslims, if you come after Haitians, El Salvadorans, if you come after my fellow American citizens, I will not tolerate it, and she should have been in the same way, as opposed to just doing her job. Well, we know what happened in Europe when people just did their job.
Booker Tuesday angrily lectured Nielsen during her appearance before the Senate Judiciary Committee, saying Trump’s alleged epithet had caused him to emit “tears of rage.”
