Professor on MSNBC: Trump Actions Parallel the Rise of Nazis in Germany


Ever since James Comey was fired from his position as FBI Director by Donald Trump, the progressive left and their allies have been in an uproar. Several have voiced the opinion that Trump did this in order to end the FBI investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. One Yale history professor, however, put forth the claim that the President’s actions foreshadow a much more sinister pattern of events during Wednesday’s edition of Morning Joe.

In showcasing his new book, On Tyranny: Twenty Lessons Learned From The Twentieth Century, author and professor of history at Yale, Timothy Snyder insisted that the manner in which Comey found out about his firing is comparable to Hitler’s infamous death squad, the SS.
