“I mean the president has not been shy. He’s not been saying this behind closed doors. This is out in the open. All people of one religion, inherently defective … should be banned from the shores of this country,” O’Rourke said on MSNBC.

“The only modern Western democracy… that said anything close to this is the Third Reich, Nazi Germany.”

O’rourke continued to say that “media members are contributing to what he considers an ongoing issue in America,” mimicking a media member he asked “Hey, Beto, do you think the president is racist?” and he asnwered that by saying that “Well, Jesus Christ, of course he’s racist! He’s been racist from Day 1,” O’Rourke said. “He’s trafficked in this stuff from the very beginning.”
