Accuracy in Media

Ali Velshi, who works for MSNBC and co-hosts a show with Stephanie Ruhle on the network, recently claimed that President Donald Trump is acting like past dictators in Europe. In speaking to presidential historian Michael Beschloss, Velshi said the following about President Trump:

Donald Trump has threatened to ban an entire religion from entering the country. He attacks the news institutions, which is what Franco, Hitler, Mussolini, and a whole bunch of other people did. Do you feel that our checks and balances in the Constitution and our political system will protect us against these potential violations of the Constitution?

Comparing President Trump to Hitler appears to be a popular talking point among Democrats, as former President Barack Obama echoed Velshi’s comments in a recent event in Chicago, Illinois:

“That’s what happened in Germany in the 1930s, which despite the democracy of the Weimar Republic and centuries of high-level cultural and scientific achievements, Adolph Hitler rose to dominate,” said Obama during a Q&A session. “Sixty million people died. . .So, you’ve got to pay attention. And vote.”

    Trump has similar attitudes, philosophy and style to these fascist dictators. Fortunately, checks and balances have long been in place to rein in the most extreme presidents throughout or history.

    Craig—Obama had and still has these type attitudes, Particularly when it came/comes to Jews and Israel. Why did Obama give the Palestinians $300,000 just three hours before he was out of office?

    Why did Obama cave in and give the Iranians $150 BILLION DOLLARS—I Repeat $150 Billion. Unbelievable!

  • Gene Williams

  • Doris Will

    Just who tried to rein in Obama? NOBODY! If anyone said anything about his programs, they were immediately labeled as racists. Now we get accused of wiping out an entire religion. You hypocrites! You watched Christian Children being beheaded, you saw them being burned alive, and didn’t care. You watched the Muslim Nations threaten to wipe Israel off the map. You didn’t care. You watch your fellow Americans being slaughtered in their own country by Muslims. You didn’t care. After President Trump became President. The Liberals became Hitler’s Brown Shirts, and they did it for free? George Soros pays for all of the murder and mayhem in this country. He chose the Democrats because they make great Useful Idiots.

    If these people in the main stream media actually did your job and told the real truth? Trump would show respect but they don’t they push nothing more than their socialist globalist views in an attempt to destroy the principles of what this country was founded upon. Then they have the audacity to compare him to these tyrants but push the very same ideals. What these scumbags in the lame stream media do is undermine our Constitutional government. It’s called treason
    1 No one has a right to come here period
    2 No one as the right to come here illegally
    3 No one has the right to come here and not assimilate to American culture
    4 .No one as the right to come here and live off the tax payer’s or to be subsidized by tax payers
    5 If our government can’t verify an alien is not a threat to the American people that person is not Constitutionally owed to immigrate into this country
    6 Only Citizens of the USA have Constitutional Rights
    7 The socialist in our judicial system have no Constitutional Authority to change alter or to interpret the Constitution or bill of rights to their party Ideology or the times. The Law of the land the Constitution is their guide to follow and administer justice period. they have no right to allow immigrants or to legalize illegal immigrants or to change the meaning of a word or uphold un-Constitutional acts of hate against religious beliefs and freedom period.

    Have we ever, in the USA had a research on who was America’s greatest liar! WE should compare the Conservatives with the Liberals and see just how close we would come to liberals lying. I think that conservatives would loose hands down, as the greatest liars, of all time!!! Just watch the liberal media!!!

  • Evermyrtle

    As an American citizen, thank you, very well said!!

  • Evermyrtle

    I wonder why, the one who threw himself from the platform to his death, wasn’t trying to do his part to make things better, rather that commit murder of himself! Did he think that would improve anything, other than take a fool out of circulation?

  • Evermyrtle

    There are no people better at calling others racists, than racists, they understand, very well, what a racist is!!!

  • Evermyrtle

    I have read many of your replies and think you are on the right track, but you need to write with a a little love in your heart.Tune out, some of the hatred that you display for those who do not beleive as you beleive! You cannot turn people from their wrong beliefs, with such hate speech!!

    You are right on the mark. Rev Alveda King had a great interview about that MLK’s Niece: ‘Outrageous’ That Critics Are ‘Unjustly’ Calling Trump Racist | Fox News Insider
