MSNBC's Chris Matthews is facing calls to resign after he compared Bernie Sanders' victory in the Nevada caucus to the Nazi invasion of France.
Sanders won the Nevada Democratic caucuses with 47 percent of the vote, the Associated Press reported.

"I was reading last night about the fall of France in the summer of 1940 and the general, Reynaud, calls up Churchill and says, 'It's over.'
"It is absolutely unacceptable that Matthews is making comparisons between Bernie Sanders, whose family was murdered by Nazis, to Nazis.
"Not long ago Chuck Todd read a line from a writer that compared Sanders supporters to [Nazi] brownshirts," he wrote.
Krishan Patel added, "Chris Matthews just compared Bernie Sanders, a Jewish man whose relatives were killed by the Nazis, to the Nazi army. »
