  • Chris Matthews Suggests Trump ‘In the Bunker’ Like ‘Third Reich’

    Legal Insurrection ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    In recent days, Donald Trump has made a concerted effort to moderate the tone, and some would say the substance, of his campaign. So how does a notable member of the MSM reward him? By analogizing him in explicit terms to a Nazi. On Monday evening’s Hardball, Matthews asked if Trump is “in the bunker?” Making the Nazi analogy clear, Matthews said that “somebody compared him to Downfall, the movie about the end of the Third Reich.” Matthews admitted: “it’s never fair to do that,” but that of course didn’t stop him, as he suggested that “he’s in the bunker...

    Imagine that a Republican state attorney general had been forced to resign after being convicted of perjury and obstruction of justice. Now imagine how the story would have been played on MSNBC. Fair to assume that the word “Republican” would have featured in the story’s first sentence? But in a stand-alone segment on today’s Hardball on the forced resignation of Kathleen Kane, the Pennsylvania AG who was convicted on nine charges, host Chris Matthews failed to ever mention, and the screen graphics never revealed, that Kane is a Democrat. Kane had illegally leaked secret grand jury documents to harm a...

    Chris Matthews is scandalized that Donald Trump would call Hillary Clinton (or Barack Obama) the "founder of ISIS." On Friday night, after all the controversy, Matthews said "You know, I don't think I've ever seen anything quite like this." That's not true. Two years ago, on September 10, 2014, after a presidential address announcing the United States would commence bombing raids on ISIS, as we documented at the time, Matthews insisted his hate object Dick Cheney (pronounce it "Chee-ney") "created al-Qaeda" and "created ISIS." "Please do not listen to Dick Cheney," Matthews advised Obama. "He's the one that created al-Qaeda...

    No thrill up the leg, but maybe something running down it. I first noticed this with Joe the Plumber. Ordinary citizen finds himself with a moment in the spotlight and uses it to criticize the president. The media immediately springs into action - not in support of the citizen’s right to dissent, but as a mass prosecution team demanding to know who this ingrate is, and what right he thinks he has to cast aspersions on the high exalted leader. He heard in the days that followed the Obama/Joe interaction that Joe was not a real plumber, didn’t have a...

    Apparently, MSNBC's Chris Matthews could not wait for the audio(courtesy Real Clear Politics) release of the 911 call made by Harvard employee Lucia Whalen. If he did, he would have discovered she never inserted the race of the individuals she was describing during her conversation with the 911 dispatcher, while she reported what she thought was a burglary in progress. Her call led to the arrest of Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates. However, Mr. Matthews and his guest Michael Eric Dyson decided to attack Ms. Whalen instead on a July 21st Hardball segment.

Outside of a Trump rally Tuesday night in Albuquerque New Mexico, anti-Trump protesters showed up and became violent, throwing rocks, smashing doors, jumping on cop cars and setting Trump flags on fire. For a couple of hours, police tried to control the protesters and find a way to let the hundreds of people who attended the rally, trapped inside, out safely. An NBC reporter was even knocked down off camera as he reported on the scene. Yet his colleagues at sister network MSNBC were less than shocked by the...

    One of the duties of the Kentucky Secretary of State is to oversee elections. So shouldn't it seem a bit strange that such a person, Alison Lundergan Grimes, acts in a blatantly unprofessional manner by publicly gloating over the loss of a candidate she opposes by mocking him? Not to MSNBC's Chris Matthews. He not only failed to question this, he happily gushed over Grimes while speculating about the next step in her political career. You can see Grimes' gloat followed by Matthews' gush in the following video.

    Watching Chris Matthews interview Obama, I was struck by just how uninterested in policy questions Matthews (and his panel) were, and how almost every question seemed to be, at heart, about Obama's emotional response to difficulties-- not about policy itself, but about Obama's Hero's Journey in navigating the plot of President Barack Obama: The Movie. As with a MacGuffin in the movie, only the Hero's emotional response to the MacGuffin matters. Again and again, Matthews and his panel focused not on weighty questions of state, but on what toll these important-sounding MacGuffins took upon the Star of the Picture, Barack...

Matthews could be heard in the background drooling over Trump's wife, Melania. Of course, that resulted in a major part of the web community laughing at Matthews. However, what most probably have forgotten is that nine years ago, Matthews was caught on camera gushing buckets of drool over Erin Burnett who was host of CNBC's Street Signs at the time. So let us now watch both of Chris Matthews' drool sessions...

    The next big event in the GOP primaries comes on April 5th in Wisconsin — the focus of one of the chapters in my upcoming book Going Red. The book focuses on Brown County as a key target for the GOP in the general election, and a bellwether for the critical northeastern quadrant of the state. Green Bay anchors Brown County, and it will take significant attention in this area to run up a big enough lead to take the state. Presidential candidates will need to spend some time in Brown, especially the Republican nominee. Donald Trump will get a...

    Hey Chris Matthews: is GloZell qualified to be President of the United States? How about John Travolta or Joy Behar? On his MSNBC show this evening, Matthews absurdly attacked Sarah Palin's legitimacy as a Trump endorser by questioning her presidential qualifications. GloZell, Travolta and Behar are all Hillary endorsers. So how about it Chris: which of them could you imagine in the Oval Office? Trump advocate Omarosa Manigault [a former Apprentice star] ably dismissed Matthews' absurd attack, saying she was supporting The Donald for president, not Palin or anyone else. View the video here.

    Mark Levin is American media's most knowledgeable, passionate proponent of constitutional conservatism. No wonder Chris Matthews hates him. On his MSNBC show this evening, Matthews slurred Levin as "one of the most distasteful human beings out there." Matthews' attack came in the context of commenting on the defense that Levin and Rush Limbaugh have mounted against Donald Trump's claim that Ted Cruz is "nasty." View the video here.

    ..... I’m not here to praise Hillary or to bury her: the first is unnecessary and the second impossible. I’m also not here to provide false hope for the so-called American left, which is far too mesmerized by the debased spectacle of presidential politics and is about to get patronized, bamboozled and bulldozed one more time, and I’m definitely not here to shill for the Democratic Party, whose current identity crisis is embodied with eerie precision in the personage of Hillary Clinton.Maybe you’ve heard about this: Hillary Clinton, who used to be secretary of state and before that a senator...

    MSNBC's Chris Matthews has been scoffing at Donald Trump's description of Hillary Clinton as an "enabler" of her husband's serial abuse of women. Trump said: "(Hillary's) got a problem. She's married to a person that's a serious abuser -- and I mean, at the highest level. She's not an innocent victim. She was the one that would go along with him in this whole game ... In disbelief, Matthews responded: "I have never heard anybody go after Hillary Clinton and say she's an enabler." This is the equivalent of Keith Olbermann's indignant claim -- after it was pointed out that...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Hillary Clinton. I mentioned earlier in the previous hour that she was stumped when asked to explain the difference between Democrats and socialists. It happened actually last night where Hillary was unable to explain the difference between Democrats and socialists. She said, "Uh, uh, you know, uh, you... you ... you ... you'd have to ask. I'm not one." It happened on PMSNBC. It was Chris Matthews asking her what the difference in a Democrat and a socialist is and whether or not she identified as a socialist. She said (summarized), "No, no, no, no, I'm not...

    By this time, Chris Matthews must be panicked. When he asked DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz to explain the difference between Democrats and socialists, the MSNBC host expressed considerable angst that the party’s leading officer couldn’t do so. "I used to think there was a big difference," Matthews lamented at the time.Fast forward five months. Matthews posed the question to the party’s leading candidate for its presidential nomination, and … Hillary Clinton couldn’t explain it either. Who else can Matthews ask? Joe Manchin, please pick up the red courtesy phone: CLICK ABOVE LINK FOR THE VIDEO Newsbusters has the...
