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 featured not one or two particularly crazy moments in Thursday night’s installment by host Chris Matthews, but rather a whole host of notable exchanges, insinuations, and quotes from both Matthews and a few of his guests. Without any further adieu, here’s the top eight loony moments (presented in chronological order).
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.
Lacking some self-awareness, MSNBC host Chris Matthews opened Tuesday’s Hardball by comparing President Donald Trump to a “large” jungle animal causing “danger in the morning” when he “come[s] out to feed” (in the form of tweeting) to the point that Matthews is struggling to see Trump as the President of United States.
MSNBC’s Chris Matthews came out swinging, during Monday’s Hardball, against conservative radio host Mark Levin for being the source of President’s Donald Trump’s claim of having his tower wiretapped by the previous administration. The 71-year-old Matthews postured like a schoolyard bully, towards the top of his program, as he mocked Levin for the sound of his voice. “Well, that's a voice to be believed,” Matthews declared after playing an audio clip of Levin talking about Obama.
