<p>Less than a day after CNN wondered what would happen if President-elect Trump were assassinated, MSNBC&rsquo;s <em>Hardball </em>host Chris Matthews tried to instill fear in viewers late Thursday, floating the idea that Trump might need to use the nuclear launch codes on Inauguration Day.</p>

<p><strong>&ldquo;Five minutes after noon? Trump. So, the voice that&#39;s recognized on the phone is commander in chief. He has the potential to do the stuff that scares the bedickens out of people &mdash; the dickens out of people who&rsquo;ve actually been briefed,&rdquo; </strong>Matthews bemoaned to <em>Washington Post</em> columnist Catherine Rampell.</p>
