Howard Dean, who is in the running to become the next chairman of the Democratic National Committee, called Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman and current senior strategic adviser, Stephen Bannon, a “Nazi.” 

{mosads}Speaking of Trump in an interview with a CBS affiliate in Texas, Dean called the president-elect a “complicated guy.” 

“He appoints a reasonable person, who’s much more conservative than I am, but for somebody who can talk to, as chief of staff, and then his senior adviser is a Nazi,” Dean said, referring to Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus and Bannon, respectively. 

“[Bannon is] anti-Semitic; he’s anti-black; and he’s anti-women,” Dean said.

The former Vermont governor and presidential candidate added, “It’s a big word, and I don’t usually use it unless somebody’s really anti-Semitic, really misogynist and really anti-black.”

Bannon has been assailed by Democrats and civil rights groups who have called him a white nationalist, racist and anti-Semite. 

Many Democrats have urged Trump to fire him.

Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway has defended the hire, calling Bannon a “brilliant tactician.”
