    Chris Matthews, EIB Guest Host? Mar 14, 2008 RUSH: This is Dean in Beulah, Iowa. Am I pronouncing that right? CALLER: Yes, you are. RUSH: Thank you, sir. Welcome to the program. CALLER: Thank you. Mega dittos, Rush. Hey, I was just wondering, I’ve been a fan of the show for a long time, and has Chris Matthews ever guest hosted your show? RUSH: Yes, he has. CALLER: And why did you do that. RUSH: Well, you know, there was a time that… Help me out on this, Snerdley. It was the mid-nineties, right? CALLER: Yeah, at least that long...

    Andrea Mitchell joined Chris Matthews in insisting that President Trump decide to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel in part to benefit Republican U.S. Senate candidate in Alabama Roy Moore. Trump made the move Wednesday because the White House “wanted to get this out before Alabama.”

    Hang in there, Al baby! That’s Chris Matthews’ message to embattled Senator Al Franken. Despite many of his fellow Dem senators and the head of the DNC calling for Al’s head over allegations of sexual misconduct, Matthews, on this evening’s Hardball, encouraged Franken not to cave—at least not right away. Excerpts: “Now here’s the question. What does he got to gain in quitting? Why isn’t in his interest to say, you know what? I’m going home this holiday season and I’ll think about it . . . The reason I say this is, won’t he regret any impulsive decision? ....
  • Chris Matthews: ‘Crazy’ Evangelicals Don’t Understand Situation in Israel

    "Don't think this isn't related to Alabama next week. It is related," Matthews said. "Because it’s the Christian Evangelicals down there with their crazy ideas about Israel which is, I don't know, mythical." "They don't understand the situation over there, how tricky it is ethnically and tribally," he added. "They don't care because it's a religious belief. Trump is playing into that this week; you watch him."

    Say, maybe President Trump’s powers are even greater than anyone imagined . . . On this evening’s Hardball, Chris Matthews asked Yamiche Alcindor, a New York Times reporter, who Trump actually listens to. She responded: “Who he actually pays attention to are all the people he calls up on the phone: Roger Ailes. All these other people that are just kind of out in the world: Steve Bannon.” Ailes died over six months ago, in May 2017. Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    On his MSNBC show this evening, Chris Matthews snuck in a singularly slimy shot at Roy Moore. After Clarence Page said that the dilemma for Alabama voters will be: “do I want to vote for a guy who’s probably a pedophile?” Matthews muttered: “I wonder whether Megan’s Law relates here?” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Chris Matthews: hypocrite. On his MSNBC show this evening, Matthews ripped Roy Moore, saying that Moore’s reported banning from a mall was an “amazing atrocious situation. A grown man with a law degree, an assistant DA, even, having to be physically banned from a public space because of his horrible behavior, his trolling behavior.” Condemning Moore supporters, Matthews said, “it’s almost like facts don’t matter. You say, so’s your old man to the other side and stick to your side. Is there a tipping point? Something that even the alt-right, or something that the hard right won’t accept?” This is...

    It’s possible that Chris Matthews has publicly discussed his drinking past before, but I had never witnessed it until tonight. When, on this evening’s Hardball, a winning Dem candidate for the Virginia House of Delegates started to discuss the opioid crisis, Matthews spoke up: “I was lucky not to have that [opioids.] I think I drank over the years too much and I quit.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    FinkelBlog ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    Chris Matthews has a new thrill up his leg . . . On this evening’s Hardball, Matthews fantasized the possibility of Trump campaign aides being hit with RICO charges. RICO is the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, adopted by Congress in 1970 for purposes of combating the Mafia. MSNBC “terrorism analyst” Malcolm Nance got the ball rolling by suggesting that Trump aides might have been paid Russian agents. Matthews then upped the ante: “That’s when I begin to think RICO. And a RICO charge. Anyway, and running a criminal operation, that they’re all doing it together.”Get the rest of...

    “Wacky?” That’s racist! That was Chris Matthews implication on this evening’s Hardball, discussing President Trump’s use of the w-word regarding Rep. Frederica Wilson in the context of the kerfuffle over Trump’s phone conversation with the widow of fallen soldier La David Johnson. Said Matthews: “I have a feeling that wouldn’t be addressed to a white guy.” View the video here.

    Hot Air ^ | October 6, 2017 | Allahpundit
    This makes twice in 10 days that a host on MSNBC has openly marveled at the idea that many, many Americans believe their rights come from God and are recognized in the Constitution rather than derive from the Constitution itself. How can it be that this idea is so inexplicably foreign, even accounting for MSNBC’s left-wing bias? They know the percentage of the country that’s religious; they’ve read that not-unimportant bit in the Declaration of Independence about men being “endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights”; they’ve read a treatise or two on natural law while in college; they’ve...

    Not even Hillary Clinton, acclaimed author of What Happened, went this far.  On Wednesday's Hardball, Dem Rep. Jackie Speier called Russian "hacking" of the presidential election an "act of war." Taking things a significant step further, Speier said: "I'm not convinced that they didn't get into the [voting] machines." That was too much even for Chris Matthews, who interjected, "we don't know that yet. We don't know that." View the video here.
  • MSNBC’s Butler: Trump’s Neo-Nazi, Racist Behavior Is Just Following Ronald Reagan’s Legacy

    One can always count on the left to overreach. Thursday’s Hardball featured MSNBC legal analyst Paul Butler arguing that President Trump’s Charlottesville response was only a continuation of “white racism” put forth by former Republican Presidents Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan. To make the show’s A-block even more loony, USC professor Erroll Southers later argued that “the right-wing” is “the greatest threat to our nation’s homeland and national security” thanks to Trump being “a champion in the White House.” Host Chris Matthews teed Butler up by wondering if Trump “allowed himself to be identified with the cause of the Civil...

    MSNBC’s ultra liberal Chris Matthews actually called out Antifa violence and questioned who they are what it is that they stand for exactly (finally). Lecia Brooks, of the Southern Poverty Law Center fought back claiming masked Antifa members “take a principled stand to stand against white supremacists wherever they may show up.” What she really means is that if you are a Trump supporter, you are a white supremacist. “I know their name is anti-fascist. Do they only go after fascists or anybody, say, in the global economic community they don’t like? Matthews began. “No. They are strictly anti-fascists. They...

    MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews was back and firing on all cylinders Monday night, overseeing a show devoid of reason as it linked conservatives, Republicans, and anyone in the “right-wing” to the KKK, neo-Nazis, and white supremacists associated with Saturday’s Charlottesville terrorism.  Matthews also showed ineptitude in not knowing until very recently that progressive heartthrob and President Woodrow Wilson loved the KKK film Birth of a Nation so much that he had it shown at the White House. Out of Control ‘Hardball’ Lumps GOP in with Neo-Nazis, Shocked Wilson Loved ‘Birth of a Nation’He began his show with a personal summation...

    Progressive commentators Rachel Maddow, Chris Matthews, Stephanie Miller, and their cacophonous coterie of smart sounding experts and political hacks toss around words like "collusion" "treason" "un-American" to describe a meeting that Donald Trump Jr. held with "the Russians" to gather opposition research, a minor scandal for sure, but they forget history. They claim the moral high-ground and they are in full Dutch with their leftist memes on display, the cackles and the smirks, the overdose of smug. They want us to forget their decades of sycophantic support for the corrupt antics of Bill and Hillary Clinton and their greed, their...

    Via the Free Beacon, this is unexpected. MSNBC is Collusion Central, which is why its ratings are exploding. Matthews admitting that there’s no apparent “there” there on that network is like Hannity saying “gee, Trump sure did behave improperly” on Fox.Matthews marvels that it sounds from Comey’s testimony like Flynn doesn’t have the goods on Trump after all. We already knew that, though, didn’t we? Flynn is reportedly seeking immunity but the feds aren’t interested (so far). If he had something that might take down the president, his lawyer would have made that known to prosecutors and immunity would...

    Q. Is there anything—anything!— about which the MSM won’t criticize about the Trump administration? A. No, judging by the mind-bogglingly minuscule, absurd any hypocritical thing that Chris Matthews has found to carp about. On his Hardball show of May 30th, Matthews got bent out of shape over the fact that Jared Kushner . . . might have a car and driver take him to work at the White House. View the video here.

    On this evening’s Hardball, Matthews said “New polls this week show the president with ocean-bottom job approval. That said, his supporters stick like a bathtub ring. Among those who voted for him, says the Washington Post, 96% said they have no regrets about supporting him.” The non-stop attacks from Dems and the MSM haven’t shaken support for President Trump among those who voted for him. A frustrated Matthews let his vexation show by comparing Trump supporters to that stubborn ring around the bathtub. View the video here.
