Video: People Demand MSNBC’s Matthews Fired After Nazi Comments
MSNBC’s Chris Matthews is taking a beating as calls grow for him to be fired from CNN after his comment about Nazi’s.
Matthews got himself in hot water when he compared Senator Bernie Sanders winning the Nevada Caucus to the Nazi’s invaded France in 1940.
“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.'”

Senator Sanders supporters are starting to find out what it has been like to be Trump supporters.
Mike Casca, Senator Sander’s Communications Director was furious, “Never thought part of my job would be pleading with a national news network to stop likening the campaign of a Jewish presidential candidate whose family was wiped out by the nazis to the third Reich. But here we are.

Welcome, Sanders supporters to what it has been like for three freaking years! I for one, love watching the Democrat party eat itself and watching progressives demand Chris Matthews be fired. Get your popcorn folks, this is getting good!
For once, I’m not being sarcastic here. I’m dead serious.
I’m really, really insulted by a major pundit on an allegedly liberal news network comparing a Jewish candidate’s overwhelming caucus victory to the French losing a battle with the Nazis.
Get this lunatic off the air. https://t.co/HZXWl3ceS7

Chris Mathews has been generous to me on a number of occasions, even blurbing my book. However, his constant references to political violence and today Nazism to describe Bernie Sanders campaign is beyond the pale. @HardballChris must resign or be fired from @MSNBC.

.@HardballChris just compared Bernie Sanders and his movement to Hitler and the Nazis on national television.
Sanders, who is Jewish and lost family in the Holocaust, is on track to be the nation’s first Jewish president.
Enough with this. Matthews should not be on the air. https://t.co/TBC9bOmdfa
