Adam Beam, a reporter for South Carolina’s The State newspaper, reported on Twitter this morning that South Carolina Democratic Party chairman Dick Harpootlian likened Republican GOP governor Nikki Haley of South Carolina to Eva Braun, the wife of Nazi tyrant Adolph Hitler.

According to Beam:

S.C. Democratic Chairman Dick Harpootlian, never a loss for a quick quip, tossed a few stinging one-liners at the Wednesday delegation breakfast.

On Gov. Nikki Haley participating in daily news briefings in a basement studio at the NASCAR Hall of Fame: ‘She was down in the bunker a la Eva Braun.’

Harpootlian’s comments come days after California Democratic Party chairman John Burton compared Paul Ryan’s speech to the RNC in Tampa, Florida, last week to the “big lie” strategy deployed by Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels. Burton later half-heartedly apologized for his remark. Yesterday, a Kansas delegate to the DNC likened Ryan to Hitler himself.
