Burton said the Republicans lie and don’t care whether people know they lie and that, quote, “As long as you lie, Joseph Goebbels , the big lie, you keep repeating it.”

Goebbels was the chief of Nazi propaganda. Nazi leader Adolf Hitler believed the “big lie” had a greater chance of being believed.

Republicans immediately criticized Burton and called for an apology. Burton later issued a statement saying that he “humbly apologized” to anyone offended by his comparison.
