CNN’s Dana Bash: Trump Like Hitler, Stalin Threatening to Jail Opponents

Sunday after the presidential debate in which Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump vowed to have a special prosecutor investigate Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton for her email server while secretary of state, and that she’d “be in jail,” CNN’s Dana Bash reacted by saying, “Stalin or Hitler” put “their opponents in jail.”

Bash said, “OK, not to sound too corny, but what makes this country different from countries with dictators in Africa or Stalin or Hitler, or any of those countries with dictators and totalitarian leaders, when they took over, they put their opponents in jail. To hear one presidential candidate say, even if it was a flip comment, which it was, you’re going to be in jail, to another presidential candidate in the United States of America, stunning, just stunning.”
