CNN's Jim Acosta wondered what the Greatest Generation would think of today's Republican Party on Saturday.
...
The host played a clip of Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) giving a shocking speech on armed rebellion.

"Matt Gaetz and his partner in slime, Marjorie Taylor Greene have been traveling the country inciting their crowds. Greene compared mask wearing requirements to the Holocaust and likened Democrats to Nazis," he noted. "Shameful."

"But there was a time when the world called on America to fight the real Nazis," he reminded. "What would the Greatest Generation, that defeated the Nazis, think of seeing swarms of domestic terrorists invading our Capitol to overturn the results of an election?"

Good question.
