GOP Delegate Calls Trump Supporters ‘Brownshirts’ Who ‘Act Like Fascists’

HumphreyGOP delegate Gordon Humphrey said that Trump supporters at the RNC reflected the behavior of their candidate, describing them as “brownshirts” who “act like fascists.”

Speaking to MSNBC’s Jacob Soboroff on the floor of the RNC in Cleveland Monday afternoon, Humphrey, a former U.S. Senator from New Hampshire, said that when he tried to raise a point of parliamentary inquiry he was “immediately drowned out by people I would refer to as brownshirts around — in my surroundings.”

“I’ve seen a lot. This is not a meeting of the Republican National Committee. This is a meeting of brownshirts,” he continued. He added that he meant the term “brownshirts” to refer to “People who act like fascists. They might not be fascists, but they act like fascists. They have the manners or the lack of manners of fascists. And in this respect they are only too reflective of Donald Trump himself.”

Asked if he had a message for the presumptive nominee, Humphrey responded simply, “Never Trump.”

Humphrey had last week referred to Trump as a “sick sociopath” who has “no conscience.”
