Congress intern resigns after boss Thomas Massie compares COVID laws with the Holocaust

Republicans just can’t stop themselves from talking about Nazi Germany while talking about COVID-19 restrictions. Marjorie Taylor Greene has, of course, done it multiple times.

But Taylor-Greene got away with what she did. Kevin McCarthy reprimanded her, she went to a Holocaust museum, but in the end she had no consequences for her actions.

So, Kentucky Rep. Thomas Massie decided that if he chose to do the same, it wouldn’t be a problem. However, when one of the Congressman’s interns resigned, at least one person admitted the problem.

In the post that has since been deleted, Massie wrote: If you need to carry a card with you to gain access to a restaurant, venue or event in your own country … this is no longer a free country. “

Andrew Zirkle, Massie’s intern, tweeted, “Me Exit. I wanted to let everyone who knew me know that as soon as I started work this morning, I resigned from the office of Congressman Thomas Massie for comparing the horrors of the Holocaust to vaccination records. “

The college student continued: “Everyone has personal limits on what is unbearable, and that is mine. I hope to take the experience I have gained at DC with me and to face the next challenge strengthened. “

While it’s depressing that the Republican leadership doesn’t feel the need to monitor its members, at least one young Republican is ready to take a stand.
