Less than a day after CNN wondered what would happen if President-elect Trump were assassinated, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews tried to instill fear in viewers late Thursday, floating the idea that Trump might need to use the nuclear launch codes on Inauguration Day.
Yes, it’s as bad as you think it was. On Wednesday, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews allowed himself to have his knees quake one last time, paying tribute to President Obama, who he deemed “a fine man” offering unparalleled levels of “sentiment,” “temperament,” and “optimism.” “To say that no person can make a difference, I give you the fine case of that fine man, Barack Obama,” Matthews swooned at the end.
President-elect Donald Trump was four days out from taking the oath of office and liberals were already scheming for his impeachment on MSNBC. During Monday’s Hardball, host Chris Matthews peddled in conspiracy theories of Russian “collusion” with the Trump campaign while teeing up Democratic Congresswoman Maxine Waters to attack the president-elect. “Does that make Trump subject to impeachment? What do you mean by not legitimate,” Matthews demanded to know.
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.
In a phone interview this past Monday on MSNBC’s Hardball, legendary actress, singer, and huge liberal Barbara Streisand decided to use her appearance to gush about fellow actress Meryl Streep’s criticism of President-elect Donald Trump at Sunday’s Golden Globes awards ceremony (plus lob a few insults at Trump herself).
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.”
If one day of stupid wasn’t enough, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews reiterated his concerns on Thursday night that President-elect Donald Trump has undermined the credibility of the news media to the point that he’s fearful people won’t believe movie times printed in newspapers.
You simply can’t make this up. The mood was grim on Wednesday’s Hardball as MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, Mother Jones editor David Corn, and New York Times columnist Frank Bruni wallowed in how President-elect Donald Trump created a landscape where the news media is so distrusted that people might soon not trust movie times in newspapers.
He’s off and running, people. On Tuesday night’s Hardball, MSNBC host Chris Matthews served up his first head-scratching Notable Quotable for 2017 as he likened Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to someone who “sat around like a troll under the bridge, ready to bite the leg of Obama for four or eight years.”
