Jesse Watters and the panel on "The Five" reacted to Democrats and left-wing celebrities starting out the New Year with attacks on President Trump.

Rep. Hank Johnson (D-Ga.) blasted Trump at an Atlanta NAACP gathering, saying that America has an "authoritarian, anti-immigrant racist strongman in the nation's highest office."

Johnson continued ripping Trump, saying that Trump has "taken over" the Republican Party much like Hitler took over in Germany prior to World War II.

Watters said Johnson succeeded in mixing a "Hitler gaffe with a 'Deplorables' gaffe," as the suburban Atlanta Democrat went on to criticize Trump voters as "older, less educated, less prosperous and... [often] dying early."

He said that Johnson also made a claim of recurring alcoholism among Trump's base as well.

"This guy also believed Guam was going to capsize because of overpopulation," Watters said, referencing a previous controversial statement made by Johnson in 2010.

At the time, Johnson expressed concern to Navy Admiral Robert Willard during a Congressional hearing that the United States territory of Guam would "tip over and capsize" because of increased military presence on the South Pacific island.

In addition to Johnson, "The Five" reacted to former "SNL" actress Jane Curtin of "Coneheads" fame said on CNN that her New Year's resolution is to see the Republican Party "die."

Marie Harf said that the "Third Rock From The Sun" star is not an important contemporary voice, and dismissed any conclusion that her comments were indicative of the current Democratic Party.
