Gretchen Whitmer for calling protesters with swastikas Nazis Fox News' Greg Gutfeld denies Michigan protesters were Nazis just because they were waving swastikas

On Fox News Friday, "The Five" co-host Greg Gutfeld criticized Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D-MI) for calling out the swastikas at the anti-lockdown rally earlier this week — and argued that just because they were waving swastika flags doesn't mean they were actual Nazis.

"It wasn't that there were Nazis there," said Gutfeld. "They were … comparing her to Hitler, which is wrong, but one should make that distinction, because what she was saying were that there were Nazis."
