Seems the left’s new marching orders involve unhinged zealots screaming President Donald Trump’s name in the same breath as Hitler, as if speaking it makes it so.

A man stood up during the intermission of a performance of “Fiddler on the Roof” in Baltimore on Wednesday and shouted “Heil Hitler, Heil Trump” —  the iconic musical is about a Jewish family facing persecution in Tsarist Russia.

“Sick, sad world. A man stands at intermission of tonight’s performance of Fiddler in Baltimore and yells, ‘Heil Hitler,’ along with pro-Trump references,” tweeted audience member Rich Scherr, who included a video.

The media ran wild with the story on Thursday eagerly splashign Trump-bashing headlines like the ABC’s below that conflated a Hitler salute with a ‘Trump salute’ (whatever that is):

CNN’s Jake Tapper was quick to latch on:

The story took off all day:

As it turned out, the man, identified as Anthony Derlunas, 58, was motivated by too much alcohol and a hatred of President Trump,  The Baltimore Sun reported.

Good question!

The incident comes on the heels of a left-wing thug reportedly breaking the ankle of a MAGA-hat-wearing Trump supporter in Tucson, Arizona.

“I heard the words Hitler, Nazi and Trump. He was shouting things like that. He came over the top of me and over and over again, he hit me,” the victim said.

The outburst at the Hippodrome Theater startled some of the theater-goers, creating a panic.

“People started running,” Scherr told the Sun. “I’ll be honest, I was waiting to hear a gunshot. I thought, ‘Here we go.’”

“Everything just got really, really quiet. And then I heard this guy screaming: “Heil Hitler! Heil Trump!,” he added.

Another audience member saw Derlunas imicking a Nazi salute.

“The people around me appeared to be quite shaken by the incident,” Samit Verma said. “There were some people in tears.”
