Former Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley – who ran a tepid campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination last year, in case you forgot – has taken to Twitter to compare the 63 million people who voted for Donald Trump to Nazis and Klansmen.

On Saturday, O’Malley expressed his agreement with Rep. John Lewis (D-GA) and his assessment that Trump’s presidency is not legitimate.

The following day, O’Malley doubled down with a tweet comparing anti-Trump protesters to anti-Nazi dissident Dietrich Bonhoeffer and civil rights icon Martin Luther King Jr., while blasting Trump supporters as the modern-day equivalents to the Nazis and KKK members that the aforementioned historical figures fought against.

During a recent appearance at a Utah Democratic party rally, O’Malley, who served as the keynote speaker, called on his party to reform itself.

“The Democratic party needs to re-build. And the time do to that is right now,” he told the crowd. “And that sort of rebuilding won’t take place in Washington. It’ll take place in Salt Lake City, it’ll take place in Utah, it’ll take place in states across the United States.”

O’Malley pulled out of the Democratic primary on February 1 after receiving a humbling 0.5 percent of the vote at the Iowa Caucus, where Clinton narrowly prevailed over rival Bernie Sanders. He then endorsed Clinton, calling Trump a “fascist threat to our democracy.”
