    MSNBC host Chris Matthews speaks with NBC reporter Katy Tur, who is following Trump at a campaign rally in Mobile, Alabama where 30,000 people are expected to turn out to see The Donald. Matthews described the scene at Ladd-Peebles Stadium in Mobile, Alabama as a "redneck riviera." Matthews asked the network correspondent, who was live on scene, if "any black people were there." "I have not seen any today that have come out for Donald Trump," Tur responded. "[They are] normal looking people, who have normal looking opinions on things," the intrepid Tur observed.

    After former President Jimmy Carter criticized “the government of Israel” during a Thursday press conference for having “no desire for a two-state solution” with the Palestinians, MSNBC Hardball host and former Carter speechwriter Chris Matthews hailed his old boss: “...he stuck it to [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu. Why not?...He might as well stick it to the guys who’ve caused him trouble, as he’s seen it, especially Netanyahu. Why not stick it to Netanyahu? He deserves it.” Matthews added: “So I think Carter is still that guy, that gutsy guy who knows how to stick it to guys he’s quite...

    DailyCaller ^ | 8/17/2015
    Sen. Ted Cruz was overshadowed during much of the first GOP debate, but he finished strong. And this might turn out to be a microcosm of his larger campaign plan. True, Donald Trump is sucking up everyone’s oxygen. And, yes, logic would dictate that — because he occupies the same populist space as Cruz — Trump would take a disproportionate number of votes from the Texas conservative. But, instead, Cruz is polling well — in third place, behind Trump and Ben Carson, according to a new Fox News poll. And if Trump gets out of the race (for now, that’s...

    On Sunday, Chris Matthews said Donald Trump is resonating with the “little guy” because he is taking on the elites who have betrayed working Americans on issues like trade and immigration. On Meet The Press, Matthews said there is a “sense of betrayal” because “the best and the brightest have given the country away on the border, on debt, on jobs.” “They feel they’ve been betrayed by the elite and Donald Trump ironically is fighting the elite here and the little guy is rooting for him,” Matthews said. Host Chuck Todd also conceded that the “the more we in the...

When Chris Matthews attempted to press the DNC chair on whether Bernie Sanders, an avowed Socialist, would get a high-profile speaking slot at the Democratic convention even if he loses the nomination, Wasserman Schultz stammered out an affirmative, which amazed Matthews and prompted him to ask Wasserman Schultz if she saw any significant difference between Democrats and Socialists. Wasserman Schultz tried to duck the question, but provided a very telling answer by doing so (via Newsalert and Mediaite): Things Get Awkward When Matthews Asks DNC Head About Bernie Sanders,...

    Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas), a Republican presidential candidate, sparred with MSNBC host Chris Matthews on Wednesday over whether the Supreme Court has become too “partisan” following the high court’s recent decisions on Obamacare and gay marriage.Though he’s done so in the past, Cruz said he’s reluctant to advocate for “judicial retention” elections every eight years. However, he also said he’s tired of seeing some of the justices “not honoring their judicial oaths.”Matthews later insinuated hypocrisy, accusing Cruz of “loving” it when the Supreme Court “seized the presidency in 2000” for former President George W. Bush during the infamous Florida recount...

Bush and Al Gore. The Texas Republican senator and presidential candidate said he is “reluctant to call for elections,” adding that it “makes him sad” but that he has done so because “a majority of the justices are not honoring their judicial oaths.” “Is that the solution? Elections?” Matthews countered. “Look, if unelected judges...

    It's easy for people--with the possible exception of Jeb Bush--to say that they would not have supported the invasion of Iraq knowing what we know now about WMD there. But Chris Matthews took things a foolish step further on this evening's Hardball, actually claiming that "there was no intelligence they had a weapon. Never was." Really? So Hillary, Bill Clinton, John Kerry, Al Gore, Ted Kennedy et al. were collective fabricators when they issued dire warnings, based on the intelligence they had seen, about Saddam's WMD?

They were killed, and Geller has been pushing back against any suggestion that the provocative nature of her group brought about those attacks. Chris Matthews tackled that argument on his MSNBC show tonight, bringing up what Geller’s group did and asking, “Does that in some way cause these events––well, not the word ‘causing’––how about provoking, how about taunting, how about daring?...

    We conservatives have countless beefs with Chris Matthews. But in contrast with the younger generation of liberals inhabiting MSNBC, the American left at large—and the Oval Office—Matthews is more of an old-school Cold Warrior, and, dare I say it, a patriot. And so it was that on this evening's Hardball, Matthews flatly declared "I hate" the Castro regime. How many other denizens of the left—from Rachel Maddow to Barack Obama—can you imagine saying the same? Matthews thus aligns himself more closely with Ronald "Evil Empire" Reagan than with Barack Obama, who just today was hailed by Tom Friedman for being...

Rather than acknowledging that it's simply wrong to insult someone for his obesity, Matthews instead observed that he shouldn't call Christie a fat guy, because "he's losing weight." So fat cracks are fine if the target is actually fat? View the video here.

    Reasonable people can disagree on whether racism was involved in the tragic death of Eric Garner. My own suspicion is that this misfortune could have transpired just as easily with a white man resisting arrest and/or a black cop choking him. And even though lots of people don't want to hear it, reasonable can disagree on whether illegally excessive force was to blame. Personally, watching the ubiquitous video of Garner's arrest, it looks like excessive force to me. But the simple fact is that a Staten Island grand jury saw evidence that led it to conclude otherwise. People should at...
  • Chris Matthews: C’mon, you’re crazy if you think Al Qaeda’s going to stop torturing if we do

    Via the Daily Caller. He’s right, but … I’m not sure anyone, up to and including nutty Joan Walsh, is claiming otherwise. (If Al Qaeda ends up ratcheting down the barbarity, it’ll be because of lessons they’ve learned from ISIS, not from the U.S.) On the other hand, opponents of EIT do frequently say that we need to set an example for the rest of the world in renouncing torture and I’ve never understood that argument either. Who are we setting an example for? Which countries are going to change how they handle terrorists because Dianne Feinstein released the...

    In case MSNBC viewers didn't understand that Ted Cruz is the new Joe McCarthy, Hardball's Chris Matthews on Thursday repeated the attack four times. Smearing the Texas Republican as unhinged and paranoid is a favorite of Matthews. This time, the host lashed out against Cruz's opposition to Barack Obama's executive order amnesty. At 7:35, Matthews jeered, "Big surprise there. Joe McCarthy is at it again." Five minutes later, at 7:40, the cable host ranted about "this plan by the new Joe McCarthy which is always to blame the government as lawless." Repeating himself, he wondered of Cruz, "Where is he...

    MSNBC host Chris Matthews offered his theory about what kind of mass immigration would be acceptable to conservatives. During an exchange on HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher on Friday, Maher was discussing President Obama’s recent amnesty action and began discussing America’s attitude towards immigrants in general. “When has America ever, ever been welcoming to immigrants?” Maher asked. “Certainly not the Irish. Need not apply.” Matthews, who was raised in an Irish Catholic family, chimed in, saying “probably the last time Heidi Klum visited,” referencing the German supermodel. “What, you mean because she’s hot?” asked Maher. “Yes!” exclaimed Matthews, adding...

    Thursday at the Aspen Institute's "Washington Ideas Forum," MSNBC's "Hardball," host Chris Matthews said the Republicans could pick up as many as 10 Senate seats because the democrats have nothing to offer voters except running away from the unpopular leader of their party, President Barack Obama. Matthews said, the Democrats have no message.

    Tuesday on MSNBC's "Hardball," host Chris Matthews compared Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) to Saddam Hussein by saying, "remember the picture of Saddam Hussein patting that kid's head," after running the Republican minority leaders latest ad in his reelection bid against Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes.
  • Did Chris Matthews Just Make the Most Illogical Argument Yet Against Ebola Travel Ban?

    10/20/2014 5:12:16 PM PDT · by governsleastgovernsbest · 17 replies
    Greatest, latest parlor game: watching liberals pretzel-ize logic in arguing against a travel ban on people from Ebola-affected countries. We've noted a few examples here, here and here. But as wacky as those assertions were, they might all have to take a back seat to the absolutely absurd argument offered up by Chris Matthews on this evening's Hardball. Matthews suggested that a travel ban wouldn't work since Thomas Eric Duncan, the Liberian who infected two people before dying of Ebola, lied to get into the US. Can't Chris see that his argument runs headlong against logic? That it is precisely...

Christopher Pryor tags: Chris Matthews, Gaza flotilla, Lift the Siege of Gaza, Pat Buchnan While Chris Matthews’ special “Rise of the New Right” was nothing less than insulting to the intelligence, and pure propaganda, conservatives can learn something from it. If we do not clean our own house, somebody else will. There are many who march under the banner of conservative America, but who have their own agenda. They often keep this agenda to themselves until they are presented with the proper...

    Early in today's Morning Joe, teasing Chris Matthews' upcoming appearance, Mika Brzezinski admonished "you two be nice now." They weren't. Yet again, the two MSNBC hosts came to verbal blows. The detonator wasn't political differences. Instead, the two MSNBC hosts squabbled over personal supremacy like a pair of eighth-grade boys in the schoolyard. Matthews was on a riff, offering a extended rundown of his predictions on the various Senate races. He didn't want to stop when Scarborough sought to interrupt. "Just a minute, Joe. Just a minute," insisted the Hardball host. Shot back Scarborough: "no, no. It's my show. I'm...
