Left-wing pundit Chris Matthews said members of the Republican Party support President Donald Trump like North Koreans “goose-stepping” for the pleasure of dictator Kim Jong Un.
“Did you ever watch those North Koreans goose-stepping in line, the same smile on their faces, everything is de rigueur?” the MSNBC host asked Republican National Committee member Shawn Steel on Friday’s program, the Washington Free Beacon reported. “Your Republican Party is so much like that.”
Matthews — presumably as an example of hypocrisy — also brought up that many Republican politicians came out against Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign.
“Nobody liked Trump when he ran,” he argued, adding that “they all fought him.”
Matthews continued noting that “now they march along, whatever Trump wants, they go, ‘Yes, sir, yes, sir.’ What’s that about, the culture of your party?” He also asked, “Why are you guys all for Trump?”
Steel saw through Matthews’ broad brush strokes: “I was supporting six Republicans before I got to Trump.”
“On the other hand, he’s had great action,” Steel added with a smile. “Don’t like the rhetoric a whole lot, but I love the action, love the tax cuts, love the economy.”
