Long time Sunday talk show host John McLaughlin provided his show a rare notable moment this past weekend, asking his panel guests a peculiar question.

Beginning a discussion over President Barack Obama’s speech in Kansas invoking Teddy Roosevelt this past week, McLaughlin was curious as to whether it resembled a certain South American dictator more.

“Did President Obama sound more like Teddy Roosevelt or more like Hugo Chavez?” he asked. “A socialist?”
