After Apologizing for 'Terrible' Hurricane Comment, Matthews Features Bill Maher for Hitler Jokes
On the same night he apologized for making a horribly inappropriate comment about Hurricane Sandy during election coverage, Chris Matthews on Wednesday had Bill Maher on his Hardball program to compare Karl Rove and Republicans to Nazis. After Matthews wondered about Rove's erroneous predictions, the liberal comic mocked, "It was a little Hitler's bunker, wasn't it? I wanted to rush in with a cyanide capsule there. I thought he was going to say, 'I don't want to live in a world without national socialism.'"
