An MSNBC contributor and college professor said Monday that the United States will experience a “Charlie Hebdo situation” because of President Donald Trump’s attacks on the media.
Jason Johnson, a tenured journalism professor at Morgan State University and politics editor at The Root magazine, accused Trump of inciting violence against journalists and predicted his words will lead to a physical attack on the media.
“We’re going to have a Charlie Hebdo situation here, without question,” Johnson said, speaking to MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle and fellow network guest Bret Stephens, a New York Times columnist. “It is going to happen because of the behavior of this president.”
“Please don’t let that be true,” Ruhle responded.
