So what does Chris Matthews foresee for President Trump: hanging by the ankles like Mussolini, or firing squad like Ceausescu?

On his MSNBC “Hardball” show, after former acting CIA director John McLaughlin refers to President Trump as a “tyrant,” Matthews says:

“Following your lines, I’ve often thought that demagoguery is not a good long-term career move. The only one I know that got a long-time career out of it was [Spain’s Generalissimo] Franco. The rest of them all died hideously.”

Suggesting that the President of the United States is a tyrant and demagogue who is likely to die “hideously” is the height of irresponsible speculation. Matthews should be ashamed. But, of course, he won’t be.
