Matt Gaetz on Marianne Williamson's comments

Marianne Williamson received the most notice her Democratic presidential bid will get when she compared ICE raids to conditions Jews faced in 1930s Germany, according to Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla.

During a speech on Tuesday, Williamson, an inspirational author and self-help guru, told the audience she is Jewish and she was, "raised to say 'never again'."

"It's happening," Williamson said. "There are some people who would say to me, ah, Miss Williamson, I think this Jewish analogy - you've really gone too far there. This is not the same type of situation at all. Some of those people will be deported to places so dangerous that there it actually is no different."

During an appearance on "The Story" Thursday, Rep. Gaetz said the comments will not only get Williamson more attention than she has received so far in her campaign but that it is indicative of a problem within the Democratic Party.
