Acting as though he’s a bystander in a superhero movie or watching one on TV, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews swooned on Wednesday that, with Senators Richard Burr (R-N.C.) and Mark Warner (D-Va.), he may have found some “heroes” that would investigate and/or prove collusion between the Russians and the Trump campaign.

Appearing as a guest on Friday's Hardball, MSNBC's Joy Reid claimed that Donald Trump's voters wanted him to "get all the brown people" off Obamacare instead of themselves. And then, following up on her AM Joy show the next morning, she hosted New York magazine columnist Frank Rich to discuss his latest article, "No Sympathy for the Hillbilly," in which he argued that Democrats are misguided in thinking that spending more time being sympathetic to Trump voters will lead them to future electoral success as they should work to boost their base turnout instead.

Lacking any self-awareness, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews opened Thursday’s show by blurting out the word “loser” then lambasted Republicans and President Trump as “barbarians” running Washington. If that name-calling wasn’t enough, Matthews later diagnosed the American Health Care Act (AHCA) contrived by a “gang of Obama-litionists” as having suffered “political euthanasia” and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (Calif.) as a dog for informing Trump Wednesday about intelligence collected against his team.

On Tuesday, the crazy train on MSNBC’s Hardball was firing on all cylinders. Host Chris Matthews was in rare form as he compared President Trump to O.J. Simpson and suggested that journalists (especially newspapers) should be automatically believed because, supposedly, no other group of humanity tells the truth better than journalists.

Loony MSNBC host Chris Matthews concluded Tuesday night’s Hardball with a loud berating of Senate Republicans and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for not confirming Obama Supreme Court pick Merrick Garland, engaging in “low-level politics” harming the country.

MSNBC’s Hardball often levels outrageous and conspiracy driven attacks against President Donald Trump, but on top of the usual assault, things got rather personal during Wednesday’s edition. “Now I'm starting to think that attributing anything as intelligent as a plan to Donald Trump is just unnecessary, I'm overegging the pudding,” mocked author P. J. O’Rourke when asked about Trump dubious claims of wiretapping, “This guy is just -- he's a giant toddler and there's nothing going around inside his head except, you know, when do I get to suck my thumb next?”

Buckle up, readers, because this has to be one of the more clueless things MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews has ever said. On Tuesday’s show, Matthews repeated a false claim that there was no “real” individual mandate to purchase health insurance under ObamaCare and the GOP not fixing this supposed problem will doom its chances of success.

We are going into the third month of the Donald Trump presidency and the media are still having full-blown panic attacks over him. The New York Times’ Thomas Friedman was so terrified by Trump’s early morning tweeting that he suggested that the “nuclear codes” be taken away from the President. MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski moaned: “We are at a low point in American history....We are all really nervous. So, if people out there feel nervous, we do, too.” The following is a compilation of the most recent and ridiculous media meltdowns over Trump:

Before Hardball host Chris Matthews and his panel predicted on Thursday President Trump Trump will be blamed for terror attacks if he cuts government spending, Matthews turned into a conspiracy theorist, inferring that Trump’s smile while declining to answer questions about a new WikiLeaks document dump was reason to question his “patriotic instincts.” The topic of Trump’s smirk came up at least five times in the hour-long show with the first instance popping up less than a minute in.

In a display of irresponsibility on Thursday night, MSNBC’s Hardball panel predicted with hints of approval that “Leninist” President Trump will be to blame if disease outbreaks or terror attacks occur on U.S. soil during his presidency should he shrink the size of government spending and federal bureaucracy.

Late on Tuesday’s edition of MSNBC’s Hardball, panelist and Brookings Institution fellow Susan Hennessey offered a jaw-dropping assessment that “the single biggest national security threat is climate change” as it’s been the reason behind many of the recent global tensions.
