Former Senator Calls Trump Supporters ‘Brownshirts and Fascists’ on Convention Floor [VIDEO]

Former Republican U.S. Senator Gordon Humphrey, who is now a GOP delegate from New Hampshire, referred to Donald Trump supporters as “brownshirts” for their behavior on the Republican National Convention floor on Monday.

“This is not a meeting of the Republican National Committee. This is a meeting of brownshirts,” Humphrey declared, in an interview on the convention floor with MSNBC.

“What do you mean by that?” the interviewer asked Humphrey.

“I mean people who act like fascists. They might not be fascist but they act like fascists. They have the manners — or the lack of manners — of fascists. 

And in this respect, they’re only too reflective of Donald Trump himself.” 

“So, do you have a message for Donald Trump, you’re a former United States senator, what’s your message for the presumptive GOP nominee base on what happened here?” Humphrey was then asked.

“Never Trump,” Humphrey succinctly answered.

Humphrey explained that before the interview he had raised a point of parliamentary inquiry, but was immediately drowned out by Trump’s “brownshirts.”
