Matthews Compares Conservatives to Kim Jong Un

by Andrew Johnson

Chris Matthews accused the conservative and tea-party factions that have been outspoken in their opposition of the Ryan-Murray budget deal of “acting if not as brutally, certainly as crazily” as North Korea’s Kim Jong Un, who recently executed his uncle.

“It’s not North Korea, but, boy, is it getting tough over there on the American right,” Matthews said.

The MSNBC host accused conservative groups of intimidating Republican senators who might otherwise support the deal into voting against it and likened their actions to those of the North Korean dictator, who “just fingered his own, unsuspecting guardian uncle over in Pyongyang.”
