[See NewsBusters for more.] On Thursday's CNN Newsroom, Trumper-turned-Never Trumper Joe Walsh took the opportunity to portray himself as one of the good Republicans who is not like the other Republicans who allegedly want a dictator who will prohibit American children from learning about the Holocaust. Thursday was also International Holocaust Remembrance Day.

Walsh had just condemned "Trump's right" and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis for "banning books that make you uncomfortable" when host Alisyn Camerota also referenced DeSantis and asked, "the Ron DeSantis “discomfort” bill as it’s called, let me read you a portion of it, it bans public schools and private business from making people feel discomfort or guilt based on race, sex, or nationality. I mean, this is, it’s so strange, I think, as you point out congressman, that this is coming from a, a Ron DeSantis, and I don't even understand frankly, practically how it can work. How are you ever supposed to shield your child in school from any discomfort?"
