During Tuesday's edition of MSNBC Live With Stephanie Ruhle, panelist Rev. Mark Thompson compared President Trump to Roman Emperor Nero, accusing him of "burning up America" because he wants to destroy the administrative state, citing his behavior at the recent G-7 Summit. The topic of Nero came up as Thompson attempted to provide some historical context to the bible passage Romans 13, cited by Attorney General Jeff Sessions when he attempted to defend the Trump Administration's zero-tolerance immigration policy.
