One can almost count on MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews to make an eyebrow-raising statement on a given night. Thursday night saw Matthews up his game with a stream of fake news, fearmongering, and liberal talk points on gun control a day after the Parkland, Florida high school massacre.
After President Donald Trump last week called for "due process" for former White House aide Rob Porter after accusations that he abused both his ex-wives, the dominant liberal media responded by again resurrecting discredited claims that Trump lobbied for the execution of the Central Park Five who were accused of raping a jogger in 1989. In fact, according to a transcript recently posted in Nexis, Trump argued against executing juveniles and pushed instead for longer prison sentences as he appeared on CNN's Larry King Live in May 1989 and responded to questions about his ad calling for New York to pass a new death penalty law for murder cases.
On Tuesday, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews spent over two and a half times more on trumpeting the need for gun control and chastising gun owners, the National Rifle Association, and ordinary Americans over the issue than covering the deadly Florida school shooting, and its victims. All told, Matthews spent 38 minutes and 46 seconds on segments or parts of ones discussing the issue with guests but only 14 minutes and 48 seconds on the actual shooting.
On Tuesday, it didn’t take long for the liberal media to move from learning about what happened at the deadly school shooting in Florida and the victims to lobbying for gun control. Ghoulishly, CNN law enforcement analyst Phil Mudd, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews, and MSNBC’s The 11th Hour host Brian Williams chose to condemn America as an exceptional country due to its gun policies.
As tough as journalists are on Donald Trump, it’s hard to believe they ever loved a president as much as Barack Obama. But it’s now been a full decade since Chris Matthews announced his famous “thrill” up the leg. Provoked by Obama’s speeches during the 2008 Democratic primaries, the MSNBC host prompted ten years of mockery for the fawning comment.
During the A-block of Friday’s MSNBC Live With Stephanie Ruhle, White House Correspondent Kasie Hunt inadvertently put lie to the media narrative that the government shutdown in late January was not the fault of congressional Democrats.
On Thursday’s Hardball, host Chris Matthews took issue with guest and former Obama Justice Department official Neal Katyal when he compared President Trump’s behavior during the Russia probe to O.J. Simpson trying to discredit the LAPD during his murder trial. While Matthews quibbling with a point raised by a guest is nothing new, it’s noteworthy because the pundit seemed to have suffered some amnesia since he made a similar Trump-Simpson comparison less than a year ago.
In the A-Block of Wednesday’s Hardball, MSNBC host Chris Matthews lost his cool in denouncing Republicans like Congressman Devin Nunes (Calif.) and Senator Ron Johnson (Wisc.) as part of a “group of munchkins” being “pushed around and led around” by their staffs and the White House in publishing the controversial intelligence memos and FBI texts.
In his latest nutty rant, MSNBC's Hardball host Chris Matthews adamantly argued that President Trump didn’t like Nancy Pelosi because she was “ethnic.” To back up his crazy point, Matthews cited another white person that Republicans supposedly attacked because they were “ethnic,” former House Speaker from Massachusetts, Tip O’Neill.
In another sign of tension ahead of the highly-anticipated intelligence memo’s release, Thursday’s Hardball was in DEFCON-1 territory with MSNBC host Chris Matthews and his A-Block guests melting down over the “all-out war” that could lead to a “constitutional crisis.”
With Tuesday’s State of the Union well-received by the public (and not the liberal media), it was time to move on and back to spreading fake news, attacking Christians, and hurling around tired insults. Luckily for the Resistance, Wednesday’s Hardball accomplished just that thanks to four cringe-worthy moments featuring host Chris Matthews and a team of liberal guests and journalists.
Donald Trump’s State of the Union address was immediately panned by liberal reporters, hosts and celebrities as a “divisive” speech that stoked “racial tensions” by emphasizing offensive themes like “church” “family and the “military.” Yes, you saw that right. MSNBC’s Joy Reid was appalled that Trump promoted those “terms of the bygone era.” The following are the most egregious examples of anti-Trump liberal media hate that surrounded his State of the Union address:
