Apparently, waving a Nazi flag that reads “Trump-Pence” doesn’t make you a Nazi, according to Fox News “The Five” co-host Greg Gutfeld.
On Friday, Gutfeld claimed that the Nazi flags were just criticism against Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D-MI) and that protestors were comparing her to 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.”

Social media users were quick to note that the Nazi flags actually had Trump’s name on them and that Trump supporters didn’t seem to understand the irony Gutfeld was referring to.
He's somehow able to determine what is ironic from thousands of miles away? Were the Confederate battle flags ironic too? pic.twitter.com/35gnPDOWe7

I wasn't robbing the bank!
I was holding this handgun *ironically* to point out that the bank's charges and fees are like stealing.
