    Chris Matthews has invited liberals at the IRS to leak the audit status of President Trump's tax return. On this evening's Hardball, Matthews said: "we know there's no audit [of Trump.] Can't the IRS just make a statement, he's not under audit? Just make the announcement. By the way, that would be a good leak. Somebody at the IRS just leaking. I thought they were all liberals over there. Why doesn't somebody just leak it?" Pursuant to 26 US Code Sec. 7213, disclosing an individual's return information, which would presumably include the audit status of a return, is "a felony...
  • Chris Matthews: Trump Family “Like The Romanovs” and “We Know What Happened” to Them

    On this evening’s Hardball, Chris Matthews repeatedly analogized the Trump family to the Czarist Romanov family that ruled Russia. Matthews ominously concluded, “we know what happened to the Romanovs.” Of course, “what happened to the Romanovs” is that the Tsar and his family were killed by Bolshevik troops in 1918, during the Russian revolution. Nice analogy, Chris. View the video here.
  • Chris Matthews Says He Has a ‘Hard Time’ Calling Trump ‘President’

    MSNBC "Hardball" host Chris Matthews said on Tuesday that he had a "hard time" saying "President Trump," and suggested President Donald Trump at times was more like a "blogger" than President. "It seems like that guy like he's some blogger. He's not the president," Matthews said after recalling Trump's previous speculations about former President Barack Obama and Sen. Ted Cruz's (R., Texas) father. "When he gets up at dawn and starts tweeting, that doesn't seem like an official statement from a president. It strikes me as the guy who used to say Obama was [an] illegal immigrant or that Ted...

    Chris Matthews and the Goofy Looking Dude from the Southern Poverty Law Center have a point: We do not have any evidence Donald Trump did not personally knock over 200 headstones in a Jewish graveyard in St. Louis. But they were sure if Trump did not do it, then some of his supporters did and everyone knows that. The further from St. Louis you get, the less insane that sounds. Because in St. Louis, large-scale vandalism and criminality is a black thing -- not a political thing.   The Trump tombstone desecration was just the warmup. Chris and the Goofy Looking Dude said Trump...
  • LIKENING TRUMP TO HITLER, JOURNALISTS UPSET NOT CALLED ON FOR QUESTIONS

    Members of the mainstream media were left fuming this afternoon after President Trump refused to call on any of their organizations for the third straight press conference. Yet many of these same news organizations have likened Trump to the Taliban and Adolf Hitler, floated false rumors about his use of a Russian prostitute, and accused his administration of being pro-slavery. After Trump avoided calling on MSNBC during today's presser with Benjamin Netanyahu, MSNBC’s Peter Alexander complained that the conservative journalists he did call on didn’t ask “real questions” like he would have. “What was striking," Alexander said, was that "President...

    Wait a second: was that Sean Hannity on Fox News? Nope, it was Chris Matthews on MSNBC last night, expressing surprising skepticism over the 9th Circuit’s decision to uphold the stay of President Trump’s executive order on immigration.Matthews made a multi-pronged attack on the ruling. Matthews suggested political motives on the part of the Court:”so much of this court ruling is based on what they think about Trump.” He called it “an odd ban on Muslims if it doesn’t include 95% of Muslims.” Matthews suggested that the ruling would not have gone 3-0 against the order if it had been...
  • Chris Matthews: Gorsuch Vote Will Go To A Filibuster; Democrats Will Not Vote For Him "Not A One"

    Matthews said politics have become so polarized that is natural to assume there will be a filibuster against Judge Gorsuch. "I think this is going to come down, to a sad denouement," Matthews said Wednesday night. "I think it's going to take 60 votes to get this approved and I think the Republicans will have their rank-and-file 52 votes will be there. But I don't think the Democrats are going to give them a single vote which mean this will go to a filibuster." "I don't think they'll get 60 votes because I don't think they'll get a single Democratic...

    Chris Matthews gave generally respectful treatment to pro-life activist Abby Johnson, who appeared on last night’s Hardball in the context of discussing the March for Life. But Matthews challenged Johnson on the position—generally adopted by the pro-life movement—that the only person who should be punished is the doctor performing the abortion, and not the woman who chose to have one. Said Matthews: “If abortion’s a murder and the person who goes to an abortion clinic is given no sanctions, no punishment whatever, there’s something that doesn’t square there . . . if you believe it’s murder, you go after the...

    From the man who brought us “fake but accurate” . . . Dan Rather is possibly the living person least entitled to pontificate about the importance of truth in journalism and politics. So naturally, Chris Matthews invited him on this evening’s Hardball to do just that. Hat tip Colleen B. In criticizing Kellyanne Conway’s use of the term “alternative facts” to explain White House spokesman Sean Spicer’s comments while addressing the press this past Saturday, Rather said: “facts, and the truth . . . are at the very foundation of our democracy.” View the video here.

    No more tingles. Chris Matthews is clearly missing the tingle. There is no longer a thrill running up his leg. Like a jilted lover, he desperately desires to be wooed once more and, apparently, he was hoping that President Donald Trump would do that in his inaugural address. It seems Trump was too harsh and abrupt in his speechmaking. Tingles was left unsatisfied, and came away disappointed.

    Imagine if just after the 2008 election, a conservative pundit had said this of President-elect Obama: “how do you dog-train Obama? I mean it tough. Dog train. If he poops in the hall, you make his nose go in it.” Western civilization as we know it might have ended right there. But on this evening’s Hardball, that’s precisely what Chris Matthews said—except about Donald Trump, of course. His point seemed to be that Trump must be brought to heel should he have the audacity to follow through on his promises to build the wall and end Obamacare. View the video...

    No More Tingles— Chris Matthews went off on Hillary Clinton last night on MSNBC. It sounds like he just endorsed Donald Trump. Chris Matthews: If you like the way things are the way they are headed in this country. If you’d like to continue the destruction of our manufacturing base, and the jobs that went with it. If you like the uncontrollable immigration, if you like the string of stupid wars from Iraq to Libya to Syria. If you want to say yes to all of that, if you want to keep this all the way it is, fine, then...

    Is anyone at the New York Times pro-life? Times reporter Yamiche Alcindor won’t say. On today’s Hardball, discussion turned to Donald Trump’s charge that the media elites are biased against him. Conservative commentator Hugh Hewitt posited that 90% of the Manhattan/Beltway elite will be voting for Hillary and applauding her election. To test Hewitt’s theory, Chris Matthews asked Alcindor whether she knew anybody at the Times who was pro-life. She first responded, “I’m not going to answer that question.” To his credit, Matthews pressed the question, but Alcindor continued to dodge, eventually saying she hadn’t asked any of her co-workers...

    On last evening’s Hardball, when Trump surrogate Steve Cortes said that voters across America aren't bothered by Donald Trump’s refusal to blindly accept the election outcome, Chris Matthews shut him down. After calling Cortes an “elitist,” Matthews declared “this isn’t going to work,” cut Cortes off, and moved to reliable liberal Ruth Marcus of the Washington Post. By coincidence, in this morning’s Quick Hits, this Insurrectionist wrote “the liberal echo chamber has contracted a bad case of the vapors over Trump’s statement, but hard to believe many actual voters out in America give much of a darn.” Guess elitist minds...

    How well did things go for Mike Pence and the Trump-Pence ticket tonight? Even Chris Matthews—no doubt to the horror of Rachel Maddow who was helping oversee the post-debate commentary on MSNBC—had to declare Pence the “winner.” Perhaps even worse for the denizens of MSNBC and its viewers, Matthews said Pence looked “strong” and like a “grown-up,” whereas Tim Kaine came across as “desperate.” Ouch!

    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 Outraged Over Trump Saying Hillary Founded ISIS; Said Cheney 'Created ISIS' in 2014

    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...
