While speaking on a podcast last week, Rep. Heather Scott (R-ID) said that she thinks Idaho Gov. Brad Little’s social distancing orders are akin to Nazi Germany, even referring to the GOP governor as “little Hitler.”

“I mean, that’s no different than Nazi Germany where you had government telling people either you were an essential worker or a non-essential worker, and non-essential workers got put on a train,” she said.

“You can’t take away people’s lives and property without compensation, and that’s exactly what [Brad Little] would be doing. I mean, they are already calling him little Hitler — Gov. Little Hitler,” she added.
