During an interview with 2020 presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke, PoliticsNation host Al Sharpton failed to push back on the far-left Democrat when he compared the Trump administration to the Third Reich. Sharpton asked O'Rourke "how do you deal with what is clearly a...empty five-day cease fire commitment from Turkey to Secretary Pompeo and Vice President Pence when we're seeing actual fighting going on?" O'Rourke's response went off the rails: "President Trump, perhaps inspired by Goebbels and the propagandists of the Third Reich, seemed to employ this tactic that the bigger the lie, the more obscene the injustice, the more dizzying the pace of this bizarre behavior, the less likely we are to be able to do something about it." After O'Rourke finished his response, Sharpton asked "did I hear you correctly say that perhaps he was influenced by Goebbels and the Third Reich in terms of telling a big lie? I just want to make sure that's what I heard you say." O'Rourke made it clear that he definitely intended to go there: "That's right. There is so much that is resonant of the Third Reich in this administration; whether it is attempting to ban all people of one religion, and saying that somehow Muslims are inherently dangerous or defective...outside of Nazi Germany, it's hard for me to find another modern democracy that had the audacity...to say something like this...This idea from Goebbels and Hitler that the bigger the lie and the more often you repeat it, the more likely they are to believe it...that is Donald Trump to a T." Rather than push back on the outrageous comparison, Sharpton merely observed: "you clearly said it's Third Reich and like Goebbels" before switching topics.
