You know who else was a homeless orator? Jesus. He could have used Jesus as an example. Or almost anyone else for that fact


even if you ignore the obvious awfulness, it’s a dumb analogy. from his own speech: Hitler DECIDED to live on the streets for *reasons*. Then he DECIDED to stop. That has nothing to do with homeless people & the challenges they face.


Pull yourself up by Hitler’s bootstraps, folks


“Hitler decided to live on the streets for a while. So for two years, Hitler lived on the streets and practiced oratory and his body language and how to connect with the masses, and then went on to lead a life that got him into history books,” he said.


Meaning it is now the position of the Tennessee branch of the Republican party that people need to be more like Hitler
