Just two days after a man drove a van through a group of Trump supporters registering people to vote in Florida, MTP Daily host and NBC political director Chuck Todd took a vicious swipe at Trump’s backers, which he noted were gathering just across the street for a rally, by comparing them to the Nazi Brownshirts who enforced Adolf Hitler’s rule.

The smear came in the midst of their horse race coverage of the New Hampshire primary and just after Todd read a piece from the Never-Trump Bulwark publication, which actually targeted Senator Bernie Sanders’s supporters with the same description:

CHUCK TODD: And want to bring up something Jonathan Lass put in the Bulwark today and about how – And Ruth, we have all been on the receiving end of the Bernie online brigade, and here’s what he says. He says, “No other candidate has anything like this sort of digital Brownshirt brigade, I mean, except for Donald Trump. The question no one is asking is this, what if you can't win the presidency without an online mob? What if we now live in a world where having a bullying, agro, social media army running around popping anyone who sticks their head up, is either an important ingredient for or a critical marker of success?”

I know everybody's freaking out this but you saw the MAGA rally that preparing around here. There are people coming from three or four states on that. That’s real – you know -- This is like Bernie,” Todd added as he turned to Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus.
