MSNBC's Chris Matthews has been unhinged for awhile. He is continually proving to be off the deep end, and does not disappoint with his most recent comment, "I'm so glad we had that storm last week."
Last week, Matthews referred to people who question man-made global warming (or is it "climate change?") as "pigs." This week, he is thrilled about a storm that has caused people their lives and property, all because of his perception that the storm boosted President Obama's re-election chances.
Even Rachel Maddow let out a little gasp at his comment, and Lawrence O'Donnell (who recently reported on a satire story as if it was real) shook his head.
Matthews should be ashamed of himself for putting his partisan agenda above the very real suffering caused by Hurricane Sandy. It is reminiscent of a similar comment recently made by yet another media figure, Today Show host Savannah Guthrie, who spoke of Hurricane Sandy as an opportunity "seemingly from above" for President Obama "where he could look like that strong, independent, steady in a storm, very appealing to the middle of the road voters".
The disconnect from "real people" by the mainstream media grows more and more apparent by the day.
Watch the inane comment here:
Chris Matthews quickly added that he only meant the comment in the "political" sense, not "in terms of hurting people." His clarification is most likely not so comforting to those who were impacted by Sandy. The storm caused mass devastation, and left tens of thousands without shelter.
Don't expect the steady drumbeat of partisan rhetoric spouted by the mainstream media to go away anytime soon. Unless people start demanding more objectivity by tuning out the crazies; the partisan divide will deepen and the nasty polarization will only continue.
He needs to be wearing a sandwich board and dropped into Staten Island.
It’s hard to believe that a couple of photo ops with Chris Christie somehow gave the impression that Obama came in to save the day and all that.
Then again, the MSM has not covered Hurricane Sandy the same way they covered Hurricane Katrina.
If enough votes were changed because Obama and Chris Christie were out there giving moral support to people, then I have to think that many of my fellow American voters are idiots.
I agree with Matthews. Today, I’m glad Sandy happened. Last night those people wanted obama, now they have him. Enjoy. Life has been too good for them.
Yes I live in NYS. My county voted red. Because of those idiots in NYC we have to suffer. Let them suffer now.
Sandy was satan’s baby.
So is Obama.
“...Glad U.S. Had Hurricane Sandy...”
Wow, now there’s some problematic mental health issues going on there!
Chris Matthews will most likely be “super dooper” happy if the Nor’easter arrives with snow later this week then!
“The National Weather Service predicted the storm would last into Thursday, bringing wind and wet snow to New Jersey, up to three inches of snow to Philadelphia and from six to 12 inches of snow to southeastern New York and New England.”
He’s now saying he’s “from the Jersey Shore.” Chrissy always changes his hometown when it conveniences him. Usually, he claims to be from “Philly” (as he always calls it) when in fact he grew up in Bucks County.
I’d like him to see the area I am now writing this from. It is pure devastation.
I feel like Ford Prefect stuck on a newly created planet Earth.
Stuck for 15 million years with the rejects from the Golgafrincham "B" Ark.
Hairdressers, tired TV producers, insurance salesmen, personnel officers, security guards, management consultants and Telephone Sanitizers.
Egad, PLEASE tell me when does the "A" Ark arrive? I want off of this detestable, filthy, moron laden rock.
The pictures from Staten Island are heartbreaking. Of course, the lamestream media didn't show them -- they only showed pics of the self-congratulating Obummer and Christie.
I never liked Christie and soooooooooooooooo regret voting for him...
