Republicans keep comparing Canada's Prime Minister to Hitler and Fidel Castro. I guess New Mexico's Yvette Herrell wanted to stake out some new territory with her own bit of foolishness. Hers was a doozy, saying she intends to introduce a bill to grant temporary asylum to Canadian protesters.

"Justin Trudeau’s heavy-handed crackdown against peaceful protesters in Canada is not the action of a Western Democracy, but that of an authoritarian regime like Venezuela," tweeted Rep. Yvette Herrell (R-NM), while retweeting a clip of Tucker Carlson on Fox News.
