In an apparent effort to foment hate and possible bloodshed, House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn, D-S.C., compared President Donald Trump to Italian fascist dictator Benito Mussolini, spreading the manufactured conspiracy theory (read, lie) that Trump intends to remain in the White House if he loses in November.
“I don’t think he plans to leave the White House,” Clyburn said. “He doesn’t plan to have fair and unfettered elections. I believe that he plans to install himself in some kind of emergency way to continue to hold on to office,” he told CNN without a single shred of evidence.

Clyburn made the historical comparison to Mussolini after drawing attention for comments he made in a PBS interview released Friday comparing Trump to Adolf Hitler.
On Sunday, Clyburn said Trump was more akin to Mussolini and that Russian President Vladimir Putin “is Hitler.” Mussolini’s rule as Italian dictator lasted for two decades until he was deposed as Italy faced catastrophic defeat in World War II.
Of course, because “Hitler” is the only thing Democrats can say. And they know that willing propagandists at CNN and other networks will never question them or demand they provide actual evidence of their insane claims.
Here’s video of Clyburn’s unhinged and completely fact-free tinfoil hat conspiracy theory:

This isn’t the first time the Democrat-media complex has allowed these type of unfounded conspiracies and comparisons to Hitler to be aired without question or push-back. As we and others have noted, networks like CNN and MSNBC are no longer involved in the “news” business. They are merely Democrat Party propagandists and are now doing whatever it takes to get Joe Biden elected — even if it means spreading outright lies and conspiracy theories.
Newsbusters put it this way:
CNN has an election to win for the Democrats and it will try to undermine President Trump in any way that it can, even if it means enabling crazed Democrats to spout psychotic conspiracy theories.
