MSNBC host Jonathan Capehart says he was triggered by Trump's speech in Poland

You just can't make this stuff up. Our progressive cupcake friends in the legacy media are writing the commentary jokes for us.

MSNBC's Jonathan Capehart said he was “triggered” by President Donald Trump's recent speech in Poland.

"We've heard lots of clips of the President's speech in Warsaw," Capehart said Saturday morning on AM Joy.

"To my ear the one thing that was left out, we didn't play this clip, but in this whole run of things, talking about Western civilization, he through in there we write symphonies. And that's what triggered the alarm bells for me that this was not just some speech about democratic values or Western civilization. This was about something else.

"Am I wrong in making this parallel between Steve King, President Trump and white nationalism?" Capehart said after playing a clip of the Iowa Republican saying Western civilization is rooted in Europe, the U.S. and every place with Christianity.

Capehart went on to claim that President Trump's use of the term 'Western civilization' gives "comfort" to al Qaeda, ISIS and potential converts because the president gave the idea the U.S. is out to "destroy them."

"That's one of the things that trouble me the most in that speech by the president is that he is setting up this clash of civilizations," Capehart said. "He's done this thing that George W. Bush avoided after 9/11, President Obama studiously avoided in his eight-year presidency to not give any comfort to those folks in al Qaeda, in ISIS, anyone in the Muslim world who wants to get converts because the United States and the West is trying to destroy them."
