Townhall Meeting with Congressman Jerrold Nadler

According to a post at REFUSE FASCISM's website, Jay W. Walker prompted Congressman Jerrold Nadler to refer to President Donald Trump as a "fascist." From their article:

"The news is reporting that Congressman Jerrold Nadler called Trump a fascist. REFUSE FASCISM made this happen...
Shout out to Jay W. Walker for posing this sharp question at last week’s Town Hall. Nadler agrees Trump is fascist, but then questions the efficacy of using the word. We agree with Jay, to not call Trump a fascist is to mince words and normalize fascism."[3],[4]
