A media watchdog was watching when a MSNBC pundit suggested Trump supporters are terrorists.
MSNBC is no stranger to Trump Derangement Syndrome, or to hatred of conservatives in general, but longtime contributor Malcolm Nance made headlines when he said Trump supporters behave like ISIS fighters.
“The behaviors that I'm seeing here -- and this is anecdotal -- are very similar to the way that ISIS members are,” Nance (pictured above) commented on the “Hardball” program. “They are true believers, and this is their reality and they will not surrender it. They're dead-enders.”
Nance, an author and former Navy officer, has caused headaches for MSNBC executives in the past because of his rhetoric, Fox News reported.
Dan Gainor of Media Research Center tells OneNewsNow that Nance is one of the “resident looneys” on the cable news channel who has suggested, for example, that veterans who support President Trump are not honorable.
“He’s also the guy that tweeted at one point an image of one of Trump's Istanbul properties and said, This is my nominee for the first ISIS suicide bombing of a Trump property,” Gainor recalls. “When the one terror attack happened in New York, he said it's not Islam, it could have been radical Catholics.”
Fox Nation host David Webb told his cable news network that Nance took at swipe at 63 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump, and he accused the MSNBC host of using such inflammatory language to sell a new book.
For the record, cranky “Hardball” host Chris Matthews didn’t exactly call out his guest.
“Malcom,” Matthews replied, “I love your attitude.”
