WATCH: Arnold Schwarzenegger Compares Capitol Protest To Nazi Germany


Former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger is comparing the protest at the U.S. Capitol to "the Night of Broken Glass" in Nazi Germany. In a video shared on his social media, the Republican claimed President Trump looked to overturn a legitimate election and "sought a coup by misleading people with lies."

The native of Austria reflected on growing up with a father who was a Nazi and seeing things first hand "spin out of control." Schwarzenegger also criticized elected Republicans who were "complicit with those who carried the flag of self-righteous insurrection into the Capitol." He said the country needs elected officials who serve something bigger than their own power or party. The 73-year-old Terminator actor concluded the almost eight-minute video by congratulating President-elect Joe Biden and offering his support.
