Donald Trump’s daughter-in-law is facing a backlash for comments she recently made about German history.
Lara Trump told Fox Business host Stuart Varney on Thursday that allowing refugees into the country was “the downfall of Germany.” She added, “It was one of the worst things that ever happened to Germany.”
“This president knows that. He’s trying to prevent it from happening,” Trump continued.

Her comments quickly ignited a wave of responses on Twitter. Many users insulted her intelligence for suggesting that helping refugees was in the same category as Nazi atrocities.

@LaraLeaTrump so…what are the worst things to happen to Germany? Immigrants under Merkel? Hitler? Allied invasion/occupation? Treaty of Versailles? Kristallnacht? Partition of Germany (1945-1990), 30 Years War?

Do any of these family members have any actual brain cells? I know she’s a Trump by marriage, but Jesus Christ read a fucking history book.

I am not surprised that Lara Trump thinks refugees are worse than Nazis.

Curiously, that's not what comes to mind when I think about "the worst things that ever happened to Germany."https://t.co/DEaSJa9Kzz

‘If you kiss my butt, I will do something for you’: MSNBC commentator slams Trump’s ‘pay-to-play’ pardons
On MSNBC Wednesday, analyst Jason Johnson broke down the self-serving logic of President Donald Trump's pardons.
"These people wrote him from prison, these people had friends asking him questions. Many of these people were connected to the president financially," said Johnson. "And it's the general message that he has, which is that this is a pay-to-play administration. If you kiss my butt, if you give me money, if you make me feel good about myself, if you praise me, if you come up for ridiculous names for yourself 15 minutes after you come out of prison, the I will do something for you."
Trump threatens federal government takeover of San Francisco: ‘It’s worse than a slum’
President Donald Trump said on Wednesday that the federal government may "step in" to take control of San Francisco and Los Angeles.
The president made the remarks at a White House event in Bakersfield, California. During the event, Trump responded to someone who said he wanted to "get rid" of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
"Get rid of Pelosi! That's okay with me!" Trump exclaimed. "Lot of people agree. Look what's happened to San Francisco. So sad what's happened, when you see a slum, where it's a slum. It's worse than a slum. There's no slum like that."
"It's something that we're going to do something about," he added. "Because if they don't fix it up, clean it up, take care of the homeless, do what they have to do but clean up their city, the federal government is going to have to step in. And we're going to do it in Los Angeles and San Francisco."
Martha McSally is in big trouble after impeachment votes: report
Sen. Martha McSally (R-AZ) lost when she ran in 2018, but was given a participation prize by the Republican governor who had to appoint someone to cover Sen. John McCain's (R-AZ) seat until it came up for reelection in 2020. Recent polling shows that McSally is in serious trouble.
Highground Public Affairs Consultants published their latest poll showing McSally has fallen significantly after the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump.
Going into the impeachment, McSally was polling at 42 percent at PPP polls, RealClearPolitics reported. However, the new data today shows McSally struggling to break 40. Instead, she's hovering around 39 percent, while her opponent, Mark Kelly is at 46 percent.
