MSNBC pundit Chris Matthews compared President Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jared Kushner to Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein’s infamous children. Discussing his apprehension at the prospect of Kushner and Ms. Trump working for the president in visible administration positions, he recalled how Uday and Qusay Hussein were also close with their father’s regime. Kushner is preparing to take over a new White House position, the Office of American Administration, which was initiated by the president to help run the country like a business. Ms. Trump has routinely been praised by her father for her acumen and leadership qualities and is considered a close personal adviser. “Uday and Qusay working for Saddam Hussein: You couldn’t go into a restaurant and have eye contact with those guys without getting killed,” Matthews said on “Hardball.” “Imagine getting into a fight in the office with Jared or Ivanka– they have enormous power and they’re always going to be there,” he said. Hussein’s sons had infamous reputations for torture and violent crimes against Iraqi civilians. Elder son Uday would torture athletes who didn’t meet his standards and Qusay helped round up and murder his father’s political opposition, the Washington Free Beacon reported. Congresswoman Martha McSally (R-Ariz.) said her Women in the 21st Century Workforce working group would be willing to work with Ms. Trump in her White House role.
Chris Matthews is a poster child for what is wrong with the dominantly liberal mainstream media. He is offensive, and breathtakingly stupid. Here he suggests, not so subtly, that if you got into an argument with Trumps daughter or son in-law, he’d have you killed. That’s the innuendo here. Just pause and wrap your brain around just how outrageously dumb that is. THAT is the kind of lunatic that MSNBC puts out as a host for their “fake news” broadcasts. Once you get past how insanely stupid Chris is, you should be offended on Ivanka’s behalf. Here you have a smart, successful business woman who is also a working mom…and a role model for so many women who is getting compared to the late vile sons of a ruthless and brutal dictator. Unreal.. Just fathom if Chris (or any other member of the media) went after a liberal Democrat female that way? Such a double standard. Members of the media, and politicians on BOTH sides of the political aisle should call out this obnoxious tool for his outrageous, and frankly stupid comments.
