Hoo Boy… It’s one thing to *read* that Nikki Fried compared Ron DeSantis to Hitler; completely another to blow by several offramps en route to that comparison. Will media cover? pic.twitter.com/bMYDowcZGD

(FOX NEWS) – Florida agriculture commissioner and Democratic gubernatorial candidate Nikki Fried sat down for an interview Friday and compared Florida’s Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis to Nazi leader Adolf Hitler.
“Instead of listening and trying to govern with the people, he is trying to govern over the people, and, you know, that, I’m sorry, I’m a student of history, too. I saw the rise of Hitler,” Fried, 44, told podcast cohost Melissa Ross on Florida public radio on Friday regarding Florida’s Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis.
When Ross asked Fried if she was making a direct comparison between DeSantis and Hitler the agriculture commissioner said “In a lot of ways, yes.”
“I have studied Hitler and how he got to power, you know, wanting his own militia,” Fried explained, referencing DeSantis’s move to re-establish a state guard which 22 other states also utilize in case of emergencies.
