Just when we thought these "political" commentators couldn't sound any more irrational, MSNBC's Hardball with Chris Matthews host steps up to the plate.
Recently on his show, Chris Matthews made an unacceptable crude comparison in an attempt to illustrate the amount of power President Donald Trump has granted his daughter and son-in-law.
"Because let me just say, you know, we kid, I kid about everything," Matthews began. "But Uday and Qusay working for Saddam Hussein: You couldn’t go to a restaurant and have eye contact with one of those guys without getting killed."
Yes, the MSNBC host went as far as to liken Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner to the vicious sons of late Iraqi former president Saddam Hussein.
"These people are really powerful," he added. "Imagine getting into a fight, in the office, with Jared or Ivanka, they have enormous power, and they’re always going to be there."
"This is what I worry about for other people in the White House," Politico’s Annie Karni agreed. "Ivanka Trump has been described as her father’s eyes and ears on the ground. That’s a little scary if you’re just a regular White House staffer."
Let's get this straight - while you may not approve of Ivanka and Jared's close involvement in the president's affairs, to compare them to the murderous sons of an evil dictator is just downright heinous!
But, if Chris Matthews wants to continually prove himself to be nothing more than an ignorant buffoon, he's more than welcome to do so.
