Maddow Researching Hitler to Understand Trump "They had 330 million people to choose from?
has researching the rise of Adolph Hitler to better understand Trump.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, Maddow called her research an attempt to know what happens when cultures "unexpectedly veered into dark places."
"Over the past year I've been reading a lot about what it was like when Hitler first became chancellor," she said. "I am gravitating toward moments in history for subliminal reference in terms of cultures that have unexpectedly veered into dark places, because I think that's possibly where we are."
News flash: that "dark place" occurred on January 22, 1973 with the passage of Roe v. Wade, a policy celebrated by people of Maddow's ideological persuasion. In fact, our culture has gone so far into the deep, pagans wouldn't trade places.
When the interviewer asked Maddow to explain why Republicans picked Trump, Maddow exclaimed she felt extremely disappointed and just couldn't believe it.
"What is amazing is the Republican Party that picked him," she said.
"They had 330 million people to choose from, and they've decided that he is the best one to be the standard-bearer of one of the two major parties of the greatest nation on Earth. Like, talk to me, Republican voters! What's the worst-case scenario for America if he wins? It can be pretty bad. You don't have to go back far in history to get to almost apocalyptic scenarios."
You know the left is worried when they have to resort to Hitler comparisons and "apocalyptic scenarios."
