‘HE’S SORT OF LIKE GOEBBELS:’ Biden compares Trump to Nazi propagandist.

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden on Saturday compared Donald Trump to a German Nazi propagandist for the president’s barrage of attacks against him on the campaign trail.

When Biden was asked during an interview with MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle how he would combat Trump’s repeated claim that he was pushing a socialist agenda, the former vice president didn’t mince words.

Trump is “sort of like Goebbels,” Biden said, invoking the name of Joseph Goebbels, the mastermind of Nazi Germany’s propaganda machine. “You say the lie long enough, keep repeating it, repeating it, repeating it, it becomes common knowledge” among voters.

“The Big Lie,” you say? Joe’s former boss received the “Lie of the Year” award in 2013 from his fellow Democrats at “Politifact:”

UPDATE: Republican Jewish Coalition Calls on Biden to Apologize for “Goebbels” Comment.

MORE: Jeff Dunetz: Biden “owes an apology to the people who suffered at the hands of Hitler. their families, and the entire Jewish people. Making Biden’s insensitivity worse is that Yom Kippur is Monday.”

Nearly every Republican president or presidential candidate has been called a Nazi by Democrats since 1940. When does a political playbook from the leather helmet era get tossed out?
