MSNBC’s anchors from Joe Scarborough to Donny Deutsch are constantly comparing President Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler. It doesn’t matter the topic. It could be Trump’s criticism of “The Squad,” or border security, or just because it’s a Tuesday. Regardless, they will find a way to say Donald Trump is LITERALLY Hitler.
From morning (MSNBC’s Morning Joe) to afternoon (MSNBC’s Deadline: White House) to evening (MSNBC’s Saturday Night Politics) there isn’t a time of day where you can’t find a MSNBCer who has compared the President to history’s worst monster.
The following is just month-long sample of MSNBC hosts comparing Trump to Hitler:
“There’s so many stunning parallels to what Hitler was doing in the early ’30s. Once again, I’m not saying Trump is going to slaughter 6 million Jews, but ranging from the fake news parallels to the seizing of new powers, the Reichstag [fire] of ’33 versus Trump’s nonexistent national emergencies and declarations to ignore Congress, the racial scapegoating, the rallies, the isolating of himself, the creating of false ‘other.’ He has the Justice Department in his pocket. He has one branch of the government marching blindly behind him.”
— Host Donny Deutsch on MSNBC’s Saturday Night Politics, July 27.
“We are heading to such a dangerous place. And guess what? You look at history, it can happen here. Maybe it’s the Jews next. Oh, oh, oh: I forgot, his daughter is married to a Jew. Who says? Who says? You know, I come from a place, I come from a group of people where it happened to, six million of them.”
— MSNBC analyst Donny Deutsch on MSNBC’s Deadline: White House, July 17.
MSNBC host Joy Reid: “He is an autocrat. In his mind, he wants to be president for life.”
MSNBC host Donny Deutsch: “I want to start using the word fascist.”
Reid: “Yeah, he’s a fascist.”
Deutsch: “And tendencies, many tendencies like Adolf Hitler. I said it. Throw me off the air.”
Reid: “At minimum what Donald Trump has done, at the most generous, he’s taken the Republican Party of the United States and turned them into the National Party of South Africa from 1948 until 1990. Because that party was a purely Christian fascist. They called themselves Christian nationalists.”
