Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) hit back at a Democratic congressman who compared President Trump to Adolf Hitler and claimed Trump draws his support from Americans who are "less educated."

Rep. Hank Johnson (D-Ga.) blasted Trump at an Atlanta NAACP gathering last week, 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.

"Donald Trump and his Make America Great Again followers ... are older, less educated, less prosperous, and they are dying early. Their life spans are decreasing, and many are dying from alcoholism, drug overdoses, liver disease, or simply a broken heart," said Johnson.

Responding in a video on Twitter, Crenshaw - who lost his right eye while serving in Afghanistan - called Johnson's remarks a "cowardly form of politics."

He said Trump "didn’t kill millions of people" or start a world war and doesn't operate "concentration camps" like Hitler did. 

"To accuse him of being Hitler is intellectually dishonest, and frankly, a huge insult to the millions of Jews who died under Nazi Germany," Crenshaw said, challenging Johnson - who has represented an Atlanta-area district since 2007 - to "pick on" him rather than "demeaning" the president's supporters. 

"Pick on somebody your own size. Pick on me if you like. My office will be right down the hall from yours. I’ll see you in Washington," he said. 

Crenshaw made headlines late last year after SNL's Pete Davidson made a joke about his eye patch, leading to Davidson appearing on the show a few weeks later and accepting the comedian's apology.
