‘Like Chavez, Castro or Putin’: Trump’s CPAC speech triggers MSNBC anchors

President Donald Trump’s speech at the CPAC conference sent MSNBC TV anchors into outrage, with Ali Velshi comparing him to the current or former leaders of Venezuela, Cuba, Iran, Turkey and, of course, Russia.

“A sprawling, truly sprawling, meandering speech by the President. The likes of which – I was saying to Stephanie – I’m used to having heard from Hugo Chavez or Fidel Castro or Erdogan,” Velshi said, after Trump wrapped up the speech Friday morning. “President Putin gives something like this every year, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad used to give speeches like this.”
