As Twitchy told you earlier, MSNBC’s Stephanie Cutter and Michael Steele described the detention camps for children of illegals as “concentration camps,” even though journalists have had the chance to tour one of these “concentration camps” and found crowded conditions, yes, but also movie nights, soccer games, a “prom,” and more. But no cages. It’s not freedom, but it’s not a concentration camp.
Or is it? Gen. Michael Hayden, former director of both the National Security Agency and the CIA, posted this hot take Saturday:

So maybe Joe Scarborough was right, and the Trump administration’s border policy really is “Nazi-like.”
Even if you believe the Trump administration is literally pulling babies from their mothers while they breastfeed, there are so many things wrong with this comparison we don’t even know where to begin. Did they have movie nights at Auschwitz?

This is a former director of the CIA. He's comparing a long-standing, bi-partisan U.S. law enforcement policy to a Nazi concentration camp. How could someone with such rash judgement ever have been in charge of American intelligence? https://t.co/Jf93mnHFuB

Hot take on the Holocaust from a former US Intelligence Community official who refers to opponents of torture as "interrogation deniers." https://t.co/MQTCyTxxKL

This was happening WHILE YOU WERE DIRECTOR OF THE CIA UNDER OBAMA. So if we're going down this road, what famous Nazi does that make you? https://t.co/fdyF9llLv0

Where is your tweet from when Obama was doing it? https://t.co/n87wUrXZA0

Something can be bad – really bad! – and still not merit a Holocaust comparison. https://t.co/j93n59VN9E

What a dumb comparison.
A. Those Jewish mothers and children weren’t in Germany illegally
B. Our government isn’t gassing and burning illegal immigrants https://t.co/ZL8xlN2yaP

He makes a good point. History forgets all those foreigners fleeing their countries, desperate to get in to Nazi Germany. https://t.co/B0mxGZUbzW

This is an embarrassing comparison. https://t.co/rd3t9ZFwZ9

That's a big stretch and an insult to the memory of those who suffered the horrors of the Holocaust.
Reconsider the use of such comparisons. https://t.co/bElsc4vzxx

Sir, this is beneath you…disappointing to compare these situations as if the two are on equal. Not even remotely close. https://t.co/4lKY7kv1qw

You realize based on your analogy that you're comparing ICE (law enforcement) agents to Nazis, right? https://t.co/WpJjZKShFe

This is a garbage tweet. You should be ashamed of yourself. https://t.co/6nY5aEOHXj

Hate to get caught up in this, but it so damn offensive when people cheapen the systematic annihilation of 6 million Jews to score political points. https://t.co/UpZDkUZZwK
— Jordan Schachtel (@JordanSchachtel) June 16, 2018
Oh, but it’s just a warning of where we’re headed — it doesn’t trivialize the Holocaust at all to score cheap political points.
Yes, we must stop the mass genocide being conducted at the border. I'm outraged that we're murdering millions of women & children. https://t.co/XX6ib805NF

Oh look more dipshittery from someone who thinks he's hot shit because he worked at an alphabet agency.
Honestly, fuck off with this grotesque offensive shit. https://t.co/5mPXr22YEu
