I've been told by native speakers that "I've been playing with you like a little toy" is more appropriate than "I've been playing with you like with a little toy". Why is that? I can't seem to understand why "like a little toy" wouldn't imply that it is me who is a little toy, and I'm playing with you (although I get that it wouldn't make any sense). What is the grammar rule that can resolve my question?
I would understand it, if it was that you don't use "with" when you say "playing you" instead of "playing with you", which creates incompatibility between "you" and "a little toy" in the sentence, in my mind.
Also, another question, that popped up in my mind while I was writing this. Is it correct to say "I get that..." or "I get it that..." (like in "although I get that it wouldn't make any sense" that I wrote)?
