    Former “Hardball” host Chris Matthews said Tuesday on MSNBC’s “The ReidOut” that he departed the network because he “remarked on somebody’s appearance in the makeup room.” As Mediaite pointed out, in March 2020, Laura Bassett claimed that Matthews “inappropriately flirted” and made her feel uncomfortable before appearing on his show.

    The 'Hardball' host made the shock announcement on Monday night, after more than 20 years at the network. MSNBC host Chris Matthews announced his retirement from the network on Monday night after more than 20 years at the left-leaning cable channel. He will be replaced at 7 p.m. by a rotating group of hosts. While Matthews was expected to retire in the near future, the sudden announcement comes amid of a series of recent flaps and controversies. Last Monday, Matthews apologized to Bernie Sanders for comparing his rise in the 2020 campaign to the German invasion of France. "Let me...

    MSNBC host Chris Matthews wondered if the Democratic Party would be better off if President Trump wins reelection rather than if Sen. Bernie Sanders takes over the White House. Matthews, 74, brought up the possibility that centrist Democrats may prefer Trump over the socialist Sanders during the network's Saturday afternoon coverage of the Nevada caucuses. The host of Hardball with Chris Matthews was leading a conversation about how centrist candidates were splitting the vote, likely a detriment to one another but a benefit for Sanders. "I’m wondering whether the Democratic moderates want Bernie Sanders to be president," he said. "That’s...

    Better dead than red … said Chris Matthews. The MSNBC host went into a protracted monologue after the Democratic debate in New Hampshire Friday night in which he condemned the evils of socialism and warned of public executions in Central Park if it ever came to the United States. “I have my own views of the word socialist and I’ll be glad to share them with you in private and they go back to the early 1950s,” he told a post-debate analysis panel. “I have an attitude about them. I remember the Cold War. I have an attitude toward [Fidel]...

    “I have my views on the word ‘socialist,’ and I’ll be glad to share them with you in private and they go back to the early 1950s. I have an attitude about them, I remember the Cold War, I have an attitude toward Castro,” Matthews contined. “I believe if Castro and the reds had won the Cold War there would have been executions in Central Park and I might have been one of the ones getting executed and certain other people would be there cheering, OK?” “So I have a problem with people who took the other side,” Matthews continued....

    For 20 years, political junkies of all persuasions have been tuning in five nights a week to watch Chris Matthews grill the day’s top troublemakers on MSNBC’s Hardball. But it wasn’t until he was missing from the anchor chair for a few nights this fall that his fans learned why he’d gone MIA: The network announced that Matthews was one of the more than 174,000 men diagnosed with prostate cancer every year, and he had undergone surgery to take care of it. Here, Matthews talks with Men’s Health about how he found out, what he did about it, and how...

You must strike the soldiers,...

    Thursday on MSNBC’s “Hardball,” host Chris Matthews described President Donald Trump as “heading up skyward in the craziness department.” Matthews said, “He wants to fight with everybody, including the quiet, American-loving Danes.” He continued, “I think going to war with Denmark is still freaking news. I’m sorry. It still makes my list. This is like a Mel Brooks movie.” He added, “He wants to go to war over Greenland if you wrote this description in Hollywood, nobody would buy it.” Matthews concluded, “If we were in a hospital and a good nurse or doctor we would have a chart with...

    MSNBC's Chris Matthews congratulated House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) for doing a "really good job" at Wednesday's hearing with former special counsel Robert Mueller. "I just want to congratulate you, sir, because I thought you—especially as chairman and all the members of your committee, I thought, the Democratic members did a really good job," Matthews said on Thursday's edition of 'Hardball' on MSNBC. "Whatever slowness there was on the part of the witness was just, you know, life," Matthews said. "I think you really did a good job in those questions you put to him, and if...

    Not everyone was convinced that Wednesday’s hearings before the House Intelligence and Judiciary Committees did not bode well for Democrat’s anti-Trump causes. In fact, very few at MSNBC were willing to acknowledge it. On his Wednesday “Hardball” broadcast, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews went as far to say it was either a second term or a prison term, meaning that if President Donald Trump does not win a second term in 2020, he will face criminal prosecution, be convicted and sentenced to a prison term.

    On Tuesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Hardball,” host Chris Matthews stated that if President Trump’s tax returns had been publicly known, “He wouldn’t have won” the 2016 election. Matthews said, “He wouldn’t have won. That’s the catch-22. If the American people found out the guy’s prancing around with the airplanes and skyscrapers, and he owns everything in the world, golf courses all over the world, and he doesn’t pay any taxes, they’d say, that’s not fair. You can’t be our leader. I think even the people in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Michigan would say, at the margin, he’s not my guy. My...

    It looks like Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is still going to be prime minister, having fought off a serious challenge from Benny Gantz. Netanyahu celebrated his projected win Tuesday night with scores of supporters who were waving President Trump flags, aware of their longtime friendship. "He's a great ally and he's a friend," Trump acknowledged outside the White House Wednesday. "I congratulate him." Ambassador John Bolton told Hugh Hewitt Wednesday morning that the administration was pleased with Netanyahu's projected win, in part because he has been a steady force in the fight against Iranian aggression.

    Faux News ^ | April 10, 2019 | Joseph A. Wulfsohn
    MSNBC host Chris Matthews blasted President Donald Trump for playing the “political sidekick” of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. In recent weeks, the Trump administration has recognized Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights and declared Iran’s Revolutionary Guard as a terrorist organization. President Trump also welcomed Netanyahu to the White House in late March. Matthews accused the president of breaking tradition with his predecessors by staying out of Israeli politics, but as Newsbusters pointed out, he overlooked the Obama State Department’s financial contribution of taxpayer money to OneVoice, an Israeli political group and opponent of Netanyahu.
  • MSNBC’s Matthews Warns of 1972 Nixon-McGovern Repeat in 2020 with Far-Left Dem Candidates

    Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Hardball,” host Chris Matthews offered his take on the Democratic Party’s drift to the far-left, which he warned could have an impact on the 2020 presidential election. Matthews reminded voters of the 1972 presidential election between incumbent President Richard Nixon and then-Democratic presidential nominee Sen. George McGovern (D-SD). Nixon won in a landslide, taking 49 states and 60% of the popular vote. He suggested such a scenario could be possible in 2020 if Democrats nominated a far-left candidate to go up against President Donald Trump in 2020. ~snip~ “What’s hard is to identify a leading candidate that...

    MSNBC host Chris Matthews said Monday that Donald Trump Jr. and Ivanka Trump could be "the next dominoes to fall" in special counsel Robert Mueller's ongoing investigation. "The president's children stand right in the line of Mueller's investigative progress," Matthews said on "Hardball." "They stand as the next dominoes to fall." "Therein lies the problem, where earlier Mueller subjects have given [President] Trump up, these two lack the option to do that. They can hardly testify against their father," he continued. "If the prosecutor will not be stopped and the kids will not fall to him, we see the president's...

    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...

    On Thursday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Hardball,” host Chris Matthews stated that there’s “a taste of Mussolini” in President Trump’s behavior at his rallies in the way that Trump walks around “with a tie that’s 8 feet long,” his coat open, and “clapping for himself.” Matthews said, “[T]here’s a taste of Mussolini here with a guy walking around with a tie that’s 8 feet long, coat open, making — clapping for himself. I know the Chinese do this, you clap for yourself in that culture. But he’s clapping away about — is he applauding himself and his presentation here?
