Chris Matthews Reacts to Trump Firing Comey: ‘A Little Whiff of Fascism Tonight’

Former FBI agent Clint Watts noted that this development meant that the “rule of law does not matter — it’s the rule of political power.”

“You know, we hear President Trump say America first,” Watts stated. “Tonight, President Trump put himself first.”

“A little whiff of fascism tonight, I think, is fair today,” Matthews responded.

The MSNBC host added, “A little whiff of I don’t care about the law, I’m the boss.”
