Occasionally, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews has provided us with moments of humor and levity (though most of the time at his own expense) and Wednesday was no exception as he took time to mock anti-Trump Republicans and faux Republicans pleading with voters to back Democrats in November.
MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews threw a fit Wednesday night in defense of the liberal media, gushing over a reporter delaying his questions in the White House Press Briefing to give NBC’s Hallie Jackson more time and accusing the White House of running “Kremlin-style” communications office. Matthews misidentified also but clearly took a shot at Fox News's John Roberts for insufficient standing up for CNN’s Jim Acosta during a July 13 press conference in England.
Chris Matthews joined the chorus of apocalyptic media takes on Donald Trump’s summit with Vladimir Putin, but it wasn’t that long ago he mocked Mitt Romney’s warnings about Russia back in 2012.
An overseas trip has done nothing to quell the liberal media’s war of words with President Donald Trump, but when Barack Obama went on his first Euro-trip as president, he and First Lady Michelle Obama were lavished with bouquets from the press. The following are just a few examples of over-the-top gushing the Obamas received from the liberal media from their 2009 European trip, as culled from the MRC archives.
The liberal news media suffered a cataclysmic meltdown on June 27 over Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement, with the resulting damage likely visible from space. Two weeks later, following President Trump’s nomination of Brett Kavanaugh, viewers were treated to a second round of hysterics.
Yes, Chris Matthews said that on Tuesday’s Hardball. And, no, it didn’t appear that Matthews realized how what he said about President Trump came across as quite the case of irony. In the A-block of his MSNBC program, Matthews wondered if the world is “about to see collusion in plain sight” by “eight-year-old” President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin even though, in Matthews’s world, Trump’s “brain soup” is “psychobabble.”
To any Trump supporter reading this post, behold what MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews really thinks of you, your political instincts, and just your basic level of intelligence. Expressing disgust with President Trump’s attitudes going into this week’s NATO summit and subsequent sit-down with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Matthews ruled that Trump supporters are like untamed dogs with Trump “dog-training these people” to hate NATO and love Putin.
Clearly, Chris Matthews hasn’t calmed down any bit in the slightest since Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement on June 27. MSNBC’s Hardball host was still raging on Monday night hours ahead of President Trump nominating Kennedy’s replacement, declaring it to be “a political appointment even more than the Supreme Court.”
President Trump won’t officially announce his latest nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court until this evening, but it’s already easy to predict the liberal media’s spin. As with all recent Republican nominees, reporters will repeatedly label them as “conservative,” which will nicely reinforce the Democrats’ strategy to paint them as outside “the mainstream.” But when Democratic Presidents announce their Supreme Court nominees, those same reporters can’t find the words to call those choices “liberal.”
Chris Matthews has said some insane things before, but on June 25, 2013, he fretted about global warming told viewers that Maimi is “only five feet in the air.... It’s not a joke.” According to Newsweek in 1996, Republicans have been “truly despicable on race” and supported a “relapse into segregation.” Hmm, hard to imagine why Newsweek has disintegrated into a dinosaur publication that hardly anyone reads or notices anymore.
Just think, this was on Thursday night, so the week from hell for MSNBC’s Hardball and host Chris Matthews was far from over with. Thursday’s installment featured he and various guests demanding that “we cannot allow” “a potential criminal” in President Trump to appoint another conservative Supreme Court justice because he’ll keep Trump from prison and do his bidding “for three decades.”
From President Donald Trump’s policy of separating the children of illegal immigrants to Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement, there was a lot for lefties in the media and Hollywood to lose their heads over this month. Anchors and reporters depicted the “despot” Trump and those who voted for him as Nazis that were making the Statue of Liberty weep. The following are the worst liberal outbursts over the last month from lefty journalists and celebrities.
