Could not load the poll.

ROUGH TRANSCRIPT:

CLYBURN: “I study history. Almost daily. And I can tell you, this country, if we aren’t careful, is gonna repeat some history that’s not pleasant.”

VANDEHEI: “Elaborate on that:”

CLYBURN: “We just — we see an open fight with the media. Everything is fake news unless it is favorable toward this president. We have heard open discussions about him, referring to himself as the ‘Law Enforcer in Chief.’” That — we don’t have that kind of stuff in this country. That’s the kind of stuff that took place after 1932 in Germany. And I do believe that this country, this electorate, is not definitive in this election. This year, this country could very well go the way of Germany in the 1930s. I really seriously feel that.”

VANDEHEI: “A year ago you said that, ‘Trump and his family are the greatest threats to democracy of my lifetime.’ As a student of history, like, how would four more years be so debilitating to democracy or the things that you care about?”

CLYBURN: “During the State of the Union Address, Trump told 31 lies. For the half of those lies, the Republican side of the House is standing up and cheering. They knew that was not true, but they cheered him on. I really believe that the people of Germany knew Adolf Hitler was lying, but they cheered him on. And before they knew it, they no longer had a chancellor, but a dictator. I — anything that’s happened before can happen again.”

VANDEHEI: “That’s pretty stark terms, right? You’re comparing Republicans to Nazis, right? And you’re comparing him to Hitler— “

CLYBURN: “No, I’m comparing— “

VANDEHEI: “Or the dynamic.”

CLYBURN: “The dynamics. The dynamics.”

VANDEHEI: “What happened to your Republican friends? Help me understand, like, the Republicans who you know are privately pretty critical of — of Trump. Like, how did they get to the point where they go along, or they applaud, or get to the point where you’d even say, listen, like, there’s parallels to — to what happened in Germany to what we’re seeing here?”

CLYBURN: “I don’t know what happened. I know they’re thirsty for power. I think the poster child for all that would be Lindsey Graham.”
