MSNBC's Chris Matthews is under fire after comparing Sen. Bernie Sanders

"I was reading last night about the fall of France in the summer of 1940," Matthews said during MSNBC's live coverage of the caucuses on Saturday. "And the general, Reynaud, calls up Churchill and says, 'It's over.' And Churchill says, 'How can that be? You've got the greatest army in Europe. How can it be over?' He said, 'It's over.'"

I love it when the left eats its own.

I mean that figuratively, of course.

Sooner or later, libs find themselves the victims of the monsters they helped create. In this case, he called the wrong guy a Nazi. Had he said “Trump”...

Chris is a stupid, liberal bastard.

But he is also not a Communist.

Criticism quickly poured in on social media over Matthews using the analogy. Sanders, who is Jewish, had most of his family killed in the Holocaust.

The Hill has reached out to MSNBC for comment.

______________

I wonder when and if MSNBC will respond.

Chris Matthews has gotten out of lock step with the Leftist Nazis and now he’ll pay for it.

I’m no fan of Chris Matthews, but that’s ridiculous.

Ah, if only we had schools that taught history, argumentation, and critical thinking. Then teachers could assign papers on the topic such as “Which is more accurate? Media comparisons of Trump to Nazis or Sanders to Nazis?”

I love it. The Democrat establishment is now reduced to accusing Comrade Sanders of being a Russian agent. In this case they may be right, but you gotta love the irony. Now they’re calling a significant number of their own fellow RATS Russian dupes.

Left created the PC juggernaut. So Mathews gets to reap the whirlwind. However it was not a bad analogy that had no connection to Nazism whatsoever other than in the most banal context. The left check in the brain first time every time

Matthews must have been reading a poorly researched book. Reynaud was the French prime minister. He was not a general.

Yep Mee too. These liberals set up these speech codes, where one wrong word, can cancel out a lifetime of work and achievement if you say something perceived as politically incorrect.

Mr. Tingles up the leg has pissed off the wrong people.

Nope. “Ol’ Chris Tingle” is an Obamunist.
