    The Hardball host was heard enthusiastically commenting on Mrs Trump's 'runway walk' as she joined her husband for his victory speech in Indiana on Tuesday. While Brian Williams was speaking about the impact the result would have on the Republican party, Matthews could be heard talking about Mrs Trump's appearance. Apparently unaware he was speaking into a hot mic, Matthews said: 'Did you see her walk? Runway walk. My God is that good. I could watch that runway show.'

    Among the more intriguing results from Tuesdays primary contests, the crowded race to fill the heavily-Democratic Eighth Congressional District in Maryland featured none other than the wife of Hardball host Chris Matthews whose candidacy included accusations that the couple leveraged their coziness with the D.C. and Hollywood elite for campaign donations. Unfortunately, MSNBC made no mention of this race during their live results coverage when polls closed at 8:00 p.m. Eastern until 1:00 a.m. Eastern and along with the MSNBC personality being absent from the coverage due the the campaign but, most importantly, that Kathleen Matthews finished in third.

    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...

Speaking on MSNBC after Marco Rubio announced the suspension of his campaign, Matthews claimed that neo-cons like Charles Krauthammer, Bill Kristol and John Podhoretz will find Ted Cruz unacceptable and will instead support Hillary Clinton. Let's put it this way: the day any of the above-named neo-cons endorses Hillary Clinton, I will gladly send Matthews 10 lbs. of the finest lox and throw in a tub of first-class gefilte fish.

I think, you know, I was the thrill up the leg, and I admitted I was overwhelmed by his speeches because Id go to all these rooms with 200 people in it and I had never heard anybody speak like Obama. According to Matthews, Obamas presidency obviously couldnt live up to that level. It couldnt. It was so stellar, the excitement in...

    Can you imagine if a conservative TV host interrupted a black woman journalist, instructing her to change the way she said something that was not to his linguistic liking? The cries of racial condescension and sexism would echo through the land. So will Chris Matthews pay a price in the liberal media for the way he treated April Ryan on this evening's Hardball? When Ryan, of American Urban Radio Networks, described Rudy Giuliani as "pro-abortion," Matthews interrupted her: "abortion rights. Pro-abortion rights . . . I don't like [Ryan's] way."

The petition began in response to outrage over Matthews' "constant shilling for Hillary Clinton." The number of petition signees has almost tripled in size since The Daily Caller reported that Hillary Clinton's biggest donors are bankrolling the congressional campaign of Matthews' wife, Kathleen. One woman who signed the petition said was "crying thinking 'my' media source is so biased." Another petitioner called Matthews' behavior an "egregious"...

Anyway, that would have been a stupid thing to say.” Mr. Matthews is of course referring to those not adhering to the politically correct mantra of ISIS having nothing to do with Islam. Well speaking of stupid things to say,...

    It’s a good thing we have Chris Matthews on hand to “whitesplain” Hispanic identity for us, amirite? Not only does Matthews question whether to use the word “Hispanic,” he then — deliberately or not — feeds into birther-style paranoia about their legitimacy. Newsbusters has the clip: Chris Matthews Not Sure if Cruz, Rubio Really Hispanic; They're 'Cuban Nationals' Though AMANDA TERKEL: …you started to see in the debate last night where they drew more contrasts on policy, starting to preview a little bit more –CHRIS MATTHEWS: Who’s out to get who?TERKEL: Uh, I think Ted Cruz. You already saw he’s...
  • Chris Matthews doesn’t think Cruz and Rubio are Hispanic - but he did when he was attacking them

    But they're definitely "Cuban Nationals" Chris Matthews is lost in a quandary. He doesn’t know how to categorize Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz. Since he’s a lifelong left-winger, placing humans into the proper boxes is of the utmost importance, because it’s the only thing that informs his commentary. If he doesn’t know what they are, it’s impossible for him to formulate one of his ridiculous attacks. Specifically, he can’t figure out if Rubio and Cruz are “Hispanic.” He’s pretty sure they’re “Cuban Nationals,” but beyond that he has no idea which label he should apply, and that’s upsetting his identity...

    You'd think that back in April when, as Ken Shepherd noted, Chris Matthews talked about Blockbuster being about all that's left in Rust Belt towns, one of his assistants would have gently taken him aside and explained that Blockbuster shuttered its stores some time ago. But on this evening's Hardball, there was Chris committing the exact same gaffe. And in the very next segment, Matthews introduced MSNBC reporter Hallie Jackson, who is youthful and female, as . . "Haley Barbour," who for all his great qualities is neither. But, hey, look at the bright side. The guest in the next...

    You say, Obama and Mandela. I say, Obama taking flirty selfies at Mandela's memorial service with the Danish PM, much to Michelle's displeasure. But not Chris Matthews. On this evening's Hardball, Matthews said that Obama's post-presidential goal is to be "the next Mandela." You've got to be [insert unprintable modifier] kidding me! View the video here.

    The insurgency conducted last night by the GOP field in standing up to biased, sneering questions from CNBC’s panel has stung the NBC Universal (and parent Comcast) empire deeply enough that it is striking back. Ken Shepherd at Newsbusters reports: "This got a little revolting tonight," MSNBC's Chris Matthews lamented to colleague Chris Jansing in a post-debate special edition of Hardball Wednesday night. Matthews was chagrined with Republican Sens. Ted Cruz (Texas) and Marco Rubio (Fla.) scoring points with debate audience by attacking the liberal media. "I thought that the candidates were trying to get votes, and they were using...
  • Matthews Mocks Rubio: 'Little Mr. Firecracker of the Bombs-away Set'

    Can you imagine if in 2007 some conservative had dared call Barack Obama the "Little Mister" of anything? The cries of racism would be echoing to this day. But on his MSNBC show this evening, Chris Matthews didn't hesitate to denigrate Marco Rubio as "the little Mister Firecracker of the bombs-away set." For good measure, Matthews claimed that "Cruz hates as well as any Republican in modern history." View the video here.

    Talking to newly installed MSNBC anchor Brian Williams about the Boehner resignation Friday morning, fellow MSNBC host Chris Matthews said he wishes the outgoing Speaker would try to pass immigration reform before he leaves. "I think it would be great if he said okay, we're a democracy here for a couple hours," Matthews said of Boehner. "We're going to vote on the immigration bill before I leave."

    MSNBCs Chris Matthews Tells Bill Maher: We Nailed Trump Greg Evans September 19, 2015 Could this be the end of the Summer of Trump? Both MSNBCs Chris Matthews and HBOs Bill Maher wouldnt be surprised. We nailed him, Matthews said last night on Real Time With Bill Maher, crowing about MSNBCs playing and replaying Donald Trumps non-response response to a supporters ludicrous birther assertions and Islamophobic aspersions. During Real Times mostly-Trump discussion Friday, Maher recalled how just days before hed teased Hardball host Matthews about MSNBCs Trump obsession, and you said thats because you want to be there...
