Bernie Sanders may be winning the Democratic presidential race right now, but he’s very unhappy with MSNBC, especially after Chris Matthews compared his victory in the Nevada caucuses to the Nazis overtaking France in World War II. Vanity Fair reports MSNBC boss Phil Griffin is hard at work to give Bernie more rally air time and more "smart, pro-Sanders voices" on the network, to "make our coverage more insightful." Bernie's winning, so it's apparently time to soften up.
MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews made clear Tuesday that, despite an apology Monday to socialist Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) for comparing his Nevada win to the Nazis taking France, he would continue to be firmly anti-Sanders. Along with his takes both pre- and post-debate, Matthews used his time with other candidates in the spin room to bash Sanders.
MSNBC was a better mood following Tuesday night’s 2020 Democratic presidential debate, expressing hope going forward because former Vice President Joe Biden “looked presidential,” “had his best night,” “had his act together,” and came across as “substantive.” Further, the panel seemed giddy at the fact that socialist Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) finally faced more than an occasional jab and some boo’s, making for what they deemed not exactly his strongest performance.
He’s not too sorry. Just a day after offering an on-air apology for comparing Bernie Sanders’s Nevada win to the Nazis, the staunchly anti-communist Chris Matthews ripped into the socialist’s deputy campaign manager, Ari Rabin-Havt.. Highlighting newly unearthed comments where Sanders said he wanted to “puke” over John Kennedy’s anti-Castro comments in 1960.
MSNBC’s Chris Matthews offered a mea culpa to 2020 Democrat candidate Bernie Sanders Monday night, after comparing his win in Nevada to the Nazis taking France in World War II. But the Hardball host did not feel the need to apologize to President Trump, or his family, for comparing them to Mussolini, Hitler, Sadam Hussein, or a whole host of other despicable dictators.
As The Hill media reporter Joe Concha reported on Sunday, Hardball host Chris Matthews was the latest target of the so-called Bernie Bros as they demanded MSNBC fire him for a comment he made about their dear leader, Senator Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) win in the Nevada caucus. According to Matthews, Sanders’ blitzkrieg through the first three states, and his increased momentum, reminded him of the fall of France to the Nazis and the call the French prime minister made to the U.K. to say “it’s over.”
The Deep State and liberal media had quite the night on Thursday in light of a New York Times report that “Russia was interfering in the 2020 campaign to try to get President Trump re-elected.” In the first 27 minutes of MSNBC’s Hardball, the narrative was that, without citing direct evidence, President Trump was a “wannabe dictator” “collaborating with the Soviets” to carry out “Russian attacks on our democracy” with an assist from “a complicit, compliant, lick-spittle Republican Congress” acting like “hosts of Russia Today.”
MSNBC wasn’t sure whether to react with approval or horror Wednesday night after the 2020 Democratic presidential debate. In the first 15 minutes, MSNBC analysts, hosts, and pundits offered debate descriptions ranging from “a presidential version of Survivor” to “the most expensive night in Vegas” to an event at “the Roman Coliseum” to “boxing in the 1950s.”
On Nicolle Wallace's MSNBC show, Chris Matthews urges Bernie Sanders's primary opponents to "punch" at him, and tell him, "you're full of it." He warns that with Sanders as their candidate, Democrats could lose 49 states, as they did in 1972 with far-left George McGovern.
The thrill is gone. Liberal MSNBC host Chris Matthews isn't happy with Bernie Sanders. This is quite a contrast to the Matthews of exactly 12 years ago tonight. On February 12, 2008, the liberal journalist swooned for Barack Obama, telling the country that the charismatic Democrat sent a “thrill” up his leg:
As New Hampshire’s election returns continued to come in, Chris Matthews grew more frustrated. After comparing some Democratic primary voters to drunks who “want a ride home,” the Hardball host admitted to being “frustrated” and not having the answers on how to beat Donald Trump. After Brian Williams turned to Matthews for answers, the MSNBC host lamented, “So I'm a bit frustrated, and I'm not the answer to all questions. Brian and Rachel, I'm just not tonight. I'm a little frustrated because I don't know what this” all means.
The early results have been coming in for New Hampshire and the cable reaction is split. Chris Matthews, who has raged against the socialism of Bernie Sanders, on Tuesday compared some Democratic voters to drunks: “There seem to be a civil war between those who want a revolution, which I think is a minority in the party, and those who want a ride home. They want a designated driver. Get ‘em home.”
