MSNBC host Chris Matthews has no business being on air. For example, he recently compared President Trump’s family to Uday and Qusay Hussein.
What’s the big deal?
Uday was so violent even his father Saddam thought he was unfit for leadership. He also abused drugs, had a penchant for torture, and that’s not all…
From Daily Wire:
MSNBC’s Chris Matthews compared President Donald Trump’s children to known child rapists, murderers, drug users, thieves, and anti-Semites on Tuesday while interviewing the author of the newly released and already debunked book on the Trump White House.
While interviewing Michael Wolff about his book “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House,” Matthews compared Trump’s children to Uday and Qusay Hussein.
“Reince Priebus and Steve Bannon had an enormous amount of — they were polarized, let’s say, in the early months of the administration, and they actually came together,” Wolff said. “I think that they became quite good friends because they understood…this was an entirely anomalous situation that they had found themselves in, and it was coming apart.”
“I guess when you’re dealing with Uday and Qusay every day, you do find common purposes,” Matthews responded about Priebus and Bannon’s relationship to his son-in-law, Jared Kushner.

More on Uday Hussein, from Guardian:
He was a monster even by the standards of Saddam Hussein’s Iraq, a sadist with a taste for cruelty so extreme that even his father was forced to acknowledge that his first-born son would not be a worthy heir.
And yet for all that Uday Saddam Hussein symbolised the brutality of the Iraqi regime, his powers were severely circumscribed. Although he retained the privileges of the much-indulged son of a dictator, he was shunted from the real centres of power in the military and security services by his quieter, younger brother Qusay.
It was not the life that Uday had intended. Of Saddam’s two sons, he was the flamboyant one – towering well over 6ft, with a penchant for fast cars and loud and drunken parties, expensive suits and flowing robes, as well as murder, rape and torture.
The search for public approbation appears to have taken over in the mid-1980s when Uday first took a close interest in sport. Footballers say he never really understood or showed much interest in the game itself, but was desperate enough for a win that he would phone up the dressing room during half-time to threaten to cut off players’ legs and throw them to ravenous dogs.
As football overseer, Uday kept a private torture scorecard, with written instructions on how many times each player should be beaten on the soles of his feet after a particularly poor showing.
Uday’s excesses carried over in his private life where he had a reputation for ordering any girl or woman who caught his eye to be brought to his private pleasure dome.
The palace, a bad taste Arabian nights fantasy, was decorated with indoor fountains and erotic murals and was in the grounds of his father’s presidential estate. A nearby chamber contained huge stashes of drugs as well as an HIV testing kit, according to US forces.
How dare Matthews!
The thing is, he’s not a real reporter. He probably has no clue about Uday’s history.
If he does, though, and still doesn’t care, well, that tells a person everything they need to know about the left.
