Oh, the irony!
A woman who works for the Biden Institute in Delaware said a line from President Trump’s CPAC speech was something Adolf Hitler would say.
The funny thing? Former Vice President Joe Biden said the same exact words just a few years prior.
Check this out…
From Daily Wire:
Trump, according to a short excerpt on Mediaite, talked about “reclaiming our nation’s priceless heritage,” during his CPAC speech. It ordinarily wouldn’t be questioned or even noticed in a speech like Trump’s:
“The men and women here today are on the front lines of protecting America’s interests, defending America’s values, and reclaiming our nation’s priceless heritage. With your help, we are reversing decades of blunders and betrayals. These are serious, serious betrayals to our nation and to everything we stand for. It’s been done by the failed ruling class that enriched foreign countries at our expense. It wasn’t America first, in many cases it was America last. Those days are over, long over.”
But these are not ordinary times. Samantha Vinograd, who is listed as a senior adviser at the Biden Institute at the University of Delaware (named after former Vice President Joe Biden), took to CNN to claim that Trump’s “heritage” line was insulting.
Vinograd, whose father is a survivor of the Holocaust, noted, “His statement makes me sick, on a personal level, preserving your heritage, reclaiming our heritage, that sounds a lot like a certain leader that killed members of my family and about six million other Jews in the 1940s.”
But if “reclaiming our … heritage” is problematic and reminiscent of Hitler, then Vinograd should also be upset with someone else: Joe Biden.
In 2011, while speaking at the Florida Democratic Party Convention, Biden said, “It’s time to fight back. It’s time to reclaim our heritage!” The former vice president made these remarks while stumping for then-President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign.
Sam, a Senior Advisor at the Biden Institute, says «‘preserving our heritage, reclaiming our heritage,’ that sounds a lot like» Hitler.

Biden may have run for president in 2016 were it not for the death of his son, Beau.
If recent polls are accurate, Joe may have the best chance to unseat President Trump.
A source with direct knowledge is claiming Biden is gearing up to declare for 2020.
From The Hill:
Former Vice President Joe Biden is almost certain to enter the 2020 presidential race, according to sources familiar with his plans.
“It’s pretty clear he’s jumping in,” said one source with direct knowledge of the would-be campaign’s moves, adding that Biden is “95 percent there.”In recent days, Biden has sought to build support from grass-roots activists and is specifically asking donors for their help in the lead-up to an announcement, according to sources.
In phone conversations, Biden has been making the case for why he’d be the best candidate in what is already a crowded field.
“Here are the facts: He’s coming off a great midterm,” said Robert Wolf, the Democratic mega-donor who confirmed he spoke to Biden on a 25-minute call on Wednesday.
“He has been the most popular surrogate during the midterms and one of the only surrogates that can play in all 50 states, and that has given him a lot of confidence that he can do well in a national election,” Wolf said.
