MSNBC Host Studying Hitler to See What a President Trump Will be Like

In an interview with Rolling Stone MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow said she was studying up on Hitler so she could better understand what life will be like under Donald Trump:

Maddow said Donald Trump’s rise to the top of the Republican Party has prompted her to search for historical equivalents, periods when cultures “have unexpectedly veered into dark places.” That search, she said, led her to 1930s Germany.

“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.”

Nothing makes me angrier than when pundits or politicians of any party make hyperbolic comparisons to political opponents and Hitler or Nazis because it serves to diminish the horrors for which the Nazis were responsible.
