“She’s [Carano] a Nazi,” the former senator said.
Maher disputed the claim and said “The Mandalorian” star wasn’t a “Nazi.”
“She’s involved with white supremacy,” Heitkamp explained. “She does hang with white supremacists.”
“There’s two things Republicans think they are going to get [President Joe] Biden on, cancel culture, this whole Dr. Seuss stuff that’s going on where they are reading ‘Green Eggs and Ham,’ proving some of these senators can actually read and immigration. So we can’t ignore the fact we got Donald Trump, was in part, because of political correctness.”
Carano was fired from the hit Disney Plus series over comments she made on social media which made a comparison between the Nazi’s hatred of Jews and hating someone based solely on their political views.
Lucasfilm, which is owned by Disney, shared in a statement at the time that Carano’s “social media posts denigrating people based on their cultural and religious identities are abhorrent and unacceptable.”
