    RUSH: Grab audio sound bite number 1 — for three weeks now they have been doing this. DON LEMON: If he doesn’t do this, the Rush Limbaughs and the other conservative media will go nuts. CHRIS MATTHEWS: The (crosstalk) president of the United States is a Dittohead. He’s doing literally what Rush Limbaugh calls his people, those who “ditto” everything. JONATHAN CAPEHART: It’s about keeping Rush Limbaugh from criticizing him. HOWARD FINEMAN: …tribal chieftains like Rush Limbaugh. RUSH: Tribal chieftain? ROBERT ZIMMERMAN: Rush Limbaugh took the president on and started attacking him. JOE LOCKHART: He said he’ll sign the bill,...
  • Chris Matthews Predicts Trump Could Resign ‘In The Coming Weeks’

    MSNBC’s Chris Matthews said Monday that President Donald Trump could resign as part of a deal with special counsel Robert Mueller. Matthews said Donald Trump Jr. and Ivanka Trump could be the “next dominoes to fall” in the investigation and could face prosecution and possible prison time. Then, he speculated: “But what if the prosecutor were to offer the president an alternative. What if he were to say he would let the children walk if the old man does the same? That would mean giving up the presidency in exchange for acquittals all around ― not just for himself, but...
  • Chris Matthews Suggests: 'Witch Hunt' to Impeach Trump for Covering Up Affairs

    Was Chris Matthews suddenly struck by some semblance of fairness? Or is the Bill Clinton fan, and the man who has described notorious womanizer JFK as a "hero," reluctant to condemn presidents for their peccadilloes? On his Hardball show this evening, Matthews suggested that impeaching a President over sexual misbehavior would be a "witch hunt." Said Matthews, posing the question to Dem Rep. Hakeem Jeffries: Chris Matthews: 'Witch Hunt' to Impeach Trump for Covering Up Affairs CHRIS MATTHEWS: Do you think you can actually impeach a President for basically covering up sexual misbehavior? I mean, we had this with Clinton....

    Once in a while, Chris Matthews deviates from the extreme liberalism that has captured the left, exemplified by the abolish-ICE talk so in vogue among liberals. On Monday evening's Hardball, Matthews took a surprisingly firm stance on immigration, actually siding more with Adolfo Franco of the RNC than with Neera Tanden, head of the Soros-funded Center for American Progress.Noting that there are "two-thirds of a billion" people living in poverty in South America who would like to emigrate to the United States, Matthews acknowledged that "at some point, there's going to have to be enforcement."Get the rest of the story...
  • Chris Matthews' Reaction to Kanye West Exposes the Left's Race-Card Hustle

    As is often the case in this era of President Donald Trump, the reaction is far more interesting than the action. The action was rapper/entrepreneur, ex-George W. Bush denouncer and Trump supporter Kanye West, whom Trump invited to the White House. The reaction from left-wing black critics was predictable. But the reaction from a notable Trump-hating white pundit was unintentionally eye-opening. In the Oval Office, West spoke nonstop, and apparently unscripted, for nearly 10 minutes. During his monologue and subsequent questions by reporters, West talked about the pressure blacks face to vote Democratic; how conservative blacks are often bullied by...

    MSNBC host Chris Matthews had advice for the Democratic Party on “Morning Joe” Thursday, but said Democrats no longer listen to him, because he’s too old. Matthews was discussing voter demographics for the upcoming November midterms and claimed suburbia will vote against President Donald Trump’s agenda at the polls.

    So what does Chris Matthews foresee for President Trump: hanging by the ankles like Mussolini, or firing squad like Ceausescu? On his MSNBC “Hardball” show, after former acting CIA director John McLaughlin referred to President Trump as a “tyrant,” Matthews says: “Following your lines, I’ve often thought that demagoguery is not a good long-term career move. The only one I know that got a long-time career out of it was [Spain’s Generalissimo] Franco. The rest of them all died hideously.”Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Omarosa Manigault is no longer at the Trump White House, but she was apparently a trainwreck, she secretly recorded conversations, including in the Situation Room, and has accused President Trump of being mental diminished because of this soda habit. In truth, liberals would eat this up. I’m sure a few are, but the source is Omarosa. That’s the issue. Even liberal outlets, like Slate, along with a host of media figures unfriendly to the president have torched Omarosa’s credibility. Yet, here we are with the racism stuff again. Omarosa has accused Trump of being racistand apparently there’s an infamous tape,...

    “The most important thing to them is that Trump seems to hate the same people they hate,” Ron Reagan says. The son of former President Ronald Reagan believes Donald Trump’s political base is so consumed by hatred for the Democrats that they would vote for Vladimir Putin to be America’s president instead of virtually any member of that party. “They really aren’t in touch with reality. The most important thing to them [is that Trump] seems to hate the same people that they hate,” Ron Reagan told Chris Matthews on MSNBC’s “Hardball” on Thursday. “That’s the real Trump derangement syndrome.”...

    Chris Matthews is mad as hell, and he's not going to take it anymore. In fact, as far as the media personalities who have reacted poorly to news this week that Justice Anthony Kennedy will retire at the end of July are concerned, Matthews ranks among the worst. "I don't think the Democrats should allow even meetings to occur with Trump's nominee to fill this vacancy by Justice Kennedy," the MSNBC host said in response to the bombshell announcement, adding that if Kennedy “gets replaced by a hardline social conservative, it is — the Democratic leadership will have hell to...

    MSNBC anchor Chris Matthews said on Wednesday that Democrats shouldn't even take meetings with President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee – who is yet to be named – to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy. "I don't think the Democrats should allow even meetings to occur with Trump's nominee to fill this vacancy by Justice Kennedy," Matthews said. Kennedy announced Wednesday he would retire, giving Trump the opportunity to make two appointments in two years to the nation's highest court. The vacancy sets up a bitter confirmation fight right before the midterm elections, where Republicans only have a single vote majority in...

    Matthews seemed to suggest that Democrats should block the appointment of a conservative judge until after the midterms, citing Republicans blocking Merrick Garland when Obama was president. “The base will attack the leadership for this, if they allow it to happen, and they should,” Matthews said of Democrats. “This is a time for vengeance for what happened two years ago, and if they don’t reap the vengeance now with four and a half months to go before the election, they will not look very strong to their base, and I think they’ll be under attack.”

    The pundit class have officially snapped over the Trump administration’s zero-tolerance border enforcement policy. Since Friday, the collective breakdown has yielded a total of 22 instances in which cable news commentators compared the separation of parents and children illegally entering the country to World War II-era war crimes and human rights violations. The Holocaust was invoked 12 times across CNN and MSNBC between June 15 and the 18th, generally in the form of comparisons between DHS detention centers and Nazi concentration camps. There were also six mentions of Japanese-American internment camps, as well as four comparisons to slavery. On Friday,...

    Have you noticed how frustrated much of the liberal media has become over the lack of any evidence of Trump-Russia collusion? Well, Thursday's Rolling Stone devoted a long article by Tessa Stuart giving one excuse after another why no such collusion has been discovered, How the House Intelligence Committee Collapsed on Adam Schiff.The subtitle is "The inside story of the California Democrat's failed crusade to investigate Donald Trump." However the big story here is contained in the very first paragraph in which it is revealed that Chris Matthews, obviously frustrated by Adam Schiff's appearances on Hardball in which nothing new...

    In the wake of today’s Texas school shooting, Chris Matthews, on his MSNBC show this evening, suggested that South Africans look down on the US, wondering “what’s with America?” Matthews might have wanted to check his stats before Blaming America First. Intentional homicide rate per 100,000 inhabitants: United States: 4.88, South Africa: 34.27. That’s right: the homicide rate in South Africa is more than seven times that in the US.Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    How wildly irresponsible was the speculation by this MSNBC guest? So bad that even Chris Matthews instructed viewers to ignore it. On this evening’s Hardball, a lawyer named Katie Phang imagined that President Trump has refused to acknowledge having had an affair with Stormy Daniels because: “There is an exceptional ‘cheat clause’ with his prenuptial agreement that he has with Melania Trump.” That bit of conjecture was more than even Matthews could stomach: Get the rest of the story and view the video here.
