With the ingurgitation of President-elect Donald Trump just a few short days away, Brian Williams put together a program looking back at The Obama Years slated for late Monday night. Williams appeared on Chris Matthews’ Hardball to promote it, and the two of them took the time to gush about President Barack Obama’s time in office. “What do you think he thinks about how he fits the job, how comfortable he is, or not, with being president in this early part of the 21st century,” wondered Matthews.

Claws came out Wednesday night on MSNBC’s Hardball as host Chris Matthews aired a half-hour long special dedicated to digging into the absurdity of BuzzFeed News publishing “salacious fake news” regarding President-elect Donald Trump. Matthews, who is known for his own outrageous statements, seemed incredibly disturbed by the whole situation. He at one point declared, “It’s certainly not journalism. I'm not sure what it is.”

Chris Matthews may have another thrill up his leg. The liberal MSNBC host on Tuesday reminisced about his admiration for Barack Obama.  He looked back: “To see Barack Obama elected president, to me, was emotionally and physically stirring.” Matthews compared, “I don't think I've been through anything like that since, maybe, the fights on the Vietnam War.”

He’s off and running, people.

NewsBusters is recounting the most obnoxious liberal bias of 2016. Today, we finish the series with some of the most outlandish celebrity quotes of 2016, mostly of the Hollywood elite shaking their pom-poms for Hillary, hyperventilating over the idea that Trump might actually be elected, and crying “racism” or “sexism” when things don’t go their way.

Ultra-liberal Daily Show co-creator Lizz Winstead appeared on Thursday’s Hardball to declare how she’s “thrilled” with a star-studded concert in Miami, set to compete with the presidential inauguration, which won’t be an act of, say, unity for the country, but one of “solidarity” with “people who literally don't want to watch this person get sworn in.” Winstead also expressed glee that President-elect Donald Trump has been unable to attract A-list celebrities for his inauguration seeing as how he plans to “literally destroy the lives” of celebrities who are “women, black and brown...[or] immigrants.”
