‘I Was Wrong’: MSNBC’s Chris Matthews Apologizes To Sanders For Comparing Victory To Nazi Invasion

MSNBC host Chris Matthews on Monday apologized to Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) for comparing the Democratic presidential candidate’s victory in the Nevada caucuses to a Nazi invasion.

Matthews started his “Hardball” on Monday by saying he wanted to “say something quite important and personal.”

“As I watched the one-sided results of Saturday’s Democratic caucus in Nevada, I reached for a historic analogy and used a bad one,” he said. “I was wrong to refer to an event from the last days, or actually the first days, of World War II.”

He then directed his comments at Sanders, saying “I’m sorry for comparing anything from that tragic era in which so many suffered, especially the Jewish people, to an electorate result in which you were the well-deserved winner.”

Matthews continued that he will “strive to do a better job myself” as the 2020 race moves along. He congratulated Sanders for the “tremendous win down in Nevada.”
