Chris Matthews Suggests Trump Should Kill Son-In-Law

Another day, another liberal joking about violence against the Trump family.

In comes MSNBC’s Chris Matthews. Speaking Thursday on his show Hardball, Matthews was lamenting at Jared Kushner’s influence within the White House. He brought up issues with nepotism and more conspiracies between the Trump administration and Russia. Arguing that Kushner was the source of many of the president’s problems, the liberal host seemingly suggested Trump channel Benito Mussolini and kill his son-in-law – something the Italian dictator did during WWII.

“So the son-in-law — you know, one good thing Mussolini did was execute his son-in-law. I mean, I’m talking about Ciano,” Matthews said to New York Times columnist Frank Bruni.

However, we are getting way ahead of ourselves with the Trump-Mussolini comments. Even before suggesting that Trump whack his son-in-law, Matthews equated Trump’s White House to Mengistu’s tyrannical government in Ethiopia; compared Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump to Saddam Hussein’s sons Uday and Qusay; and repeatedly said Trump family members were like “the Romanovs.”

All in one episode.

This is a sign of a man going crazy with Trump Derangement Syndrome. He dredges up comparisons to Romanovs, Mussolini and the Hussein family in just a few short sentences. If you took him at his word, the United States is currently a third-world, banana republic living under gestapo rule. He’s convinced himself Donald Trump will be impeached by the end of the week.

Hey Chris, I think you’re a little paranoid.
