Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Theblaze.com: “Joe Scarborough compares Trump to Putin: 'Trump would kill reporters if he could get away with it'”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

MSNBC host and former Republican Joe Scarborough told his audience Monday morning that President Donald "Trump would kill reporters if he could get away with it," comparing the U.S. president to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Scarborough made the comment during his criticism of Trump's "60 Minutes" interview with CBS News journalist Lesley Stahl, which aired the night before, hitting out at the president for criticizing Stahl after she began the sit-down by asking: "Are you ready for some tough questions?"

"How fascinating that Donald Trump says it's, quote, inappropriate for Lesley Stahl to ask tough questions," Scarborough said "It's just, it's really fascinating at this point to look how much that Donald Trump resembles an autocratic leader from eastern Europe, whether it's Belarus or whether it's Russia.

"Actually, though he kills journalists, Vladimir Putin on camera actually seems a little more willing to answer tough questions when they are asked of him," Scarborough continued. "Donald Trump can't even handle that.

"Of course, Donald Trump would kill reporters if he could get away with it," the MSNBC host said. "I think even his strongest supporters would admit Trump would do whatever he could get away with."
