Former First Lady Hillary Clinton compared Trump supporters to Nazis as hundreds of supporters held their index fingers in the air ‘saluting’ the former President at a recent frenzied campaign rally in Ohio. 

Clinton was attending the Texas Tribune Festival in Austin on Friday and criticized the disturbing hand gesture made by many Trump supporters at a September 17  event Trump attended for GOP senate candidate J.D. Vance.

The one- time presidential candidate spoke about her years as a young student trying to figure out how people were drawn in by Hitler.

‘I remember as a young student, you know, trying to figure out how did people get basically drawn in by Hitler. How did that happen?’ Clinton said. 

‘I’d watch newsreels and I’d see this guy standing up there ranting and raving, and people shouting and raising their arms. I thought, ‘What’s happened to these people?’ she continued. 

‘You saw the rally in Ohio the other night, Trump is there ranting and raving for more than an hour, and you have these rows of young men with their arms raised,’ she said. ‘I thought, ‘What is going on?”

A spokesperson for Trump’s spokesperson told Fox News that the comparison was ‘pathetic’ and ‘divisive.’ 

     

Rally organizers, in the meantime, were concerned about the controversial one-figure salute that has also been linked to the QAnon conspiracy movement.

But, one Trump supporter who was in the crowd pointed his stiff-arm in the air in the one-finger salute said the gesture is a saying used in the QAnon movement that means: ‘Where We Go One We Go All,’ Yahoo News reported. 

Clinton asked during the policy and politics event : ‘ How did that happen? I’d watch newsreels and I’d see this guy standing up there ranting and raving, and people shouting and raising their arms. I thought, ‘What’s happened to these people?”

Aldoph Hitler the Austrian-German born leader who rose to power between 1933 to 1945 was the responsible for the horrifying murder and persecution of six million Jews and others during the Holocaust.

In the 2000 book ‘Hitler: 1936-45: Nemisis’ historian and biographer Ian Kershaw described Hitler as ‘the embodiment of modern political evil’.

Trump spoke at the rally addressing the crowd as dramatic music played. 

‘My fellow citizens, this incredible journey we’re on together has only just begun, and it is time to start talking about greatness for our country again. We are one movement, one people, one family, and one glorious American nation,’ Trump said

A rep for Trump called the Qanon speculation a ‘dopey conspiracy.’

‘As usual, the media is working hand in hand with the Democrats weeks before an election,’ said spokesman Taylor Budowich.

Clinton has frequently derided the billionaire and his supporters, most famously calling them a ‘basket of deplorables’ during the campaign.
