Donald Trump delivered an inaugural address that apparently MSNBC’s Chris Matthews heard as Adolph Hitler’s 1939 speech before the Reichstag.
As The Hill pointed out, when Matthews was prattling on with his cohorts over at MSNBC in the course of providing inauguration coverage, he made the following comment about something Trump said during his speech to the assembled.
“When he said today ‘America First,’ it was not just the racial — I mean, I shouldn’t say racial, the Hitlerian background to it, but it was the message I kept thinking,” Matthews said.
Once again, Trump is Hitler. Once again, any message that suggests even the most benign posture of nationalism is evocative of Der Fuhrer.
Matthews wasn’t finished, going on to further suggest that such postures as those assumed by Trump during his speech…which he, of course, assumed throughout his campaign and on which he was presumably elected…are similar, in general to the stances taken by Russia’s Vladimir Putin.
“What if you’re Putin? You’re probably pounding the table saying, ‘That’s what I’ve been saying, Russia first! Russia first!’”
In fact, it’s likely that Trump would readily agree with Matthews on the comparison to Putin, in this case. Trump has long appeared to harbor great admiration for those state leaders who have eschewed the globalist effort at demanding a subordination of national interests to global ones, and so would surely be happy to be considered a member of their group.
