Justice Kennedy announced his retirement Wednesday, and the ramifications sent the media into a frenzy over all things Supreme Court. On MSNBC Live with Katy Tury, stand-in host Steve Kornacki did not speculate on the best replacement for Kennedy but instead asked four different guests about the possibility of Republicans failing to confirm President Trump’s nominee to the high court. 



It’s been an awful, infamous, and nightmare-inducing week for MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews. Wednesday was infinity worse as swing Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement.  All day, Matthews has been off his rocker, screaming about the need for a vicious fight by Democrats to stop a new ninth justice from being seated. He even angrily shouted at Steve Kornacki for doing, well, absolutely nothing. That being said, it set the table for Hardball.



With the retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy from the Supreme Court, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews has been undergoing a Chernobyl level meltdown on live television for hours on end. But things took a dark turn towards the end of the three o’clock hour when he ominously predicted “Spanish Civil War stuff” was going to happen in the fight between Republicans and Democrats over the high court vacancy.



Reacting to Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy announcing his retirement on Wednesday, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews suffered a total meltdown. The Hardball host went into full panic at the prospect of President Trump being able to make a second nomination to the high court and declared that Democrats “cannot let this happen.” He even demanded that liberal lawmakers exact “vengeance” against Republicans for opposing Barack Obama’s pick of Merrick Garland to replace Justice Scalia in 2016.



This is what having an awful, no good, very bad day looks like. MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews unleashed two separate tirades on Tuesday against the U.S. Supreme Court and decisions of theirs he doesn’t like in light of their decision to give President Trump “[t]he Good Housekeeping seal on his campaign to divide the country and approving his travel ban crudely aimed at Muslims.”



The pundit class have lost their minds over the Trump administration’s zero-tolerance border enforcement policy. Since Friday, the collective breakdown has yielded a total of 22 instances in which cable news commentators compared the separation of parents and children illegally entering the country to World War II-era war crimes and human rights violations. 



A day after MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews called out President Trump for “coming out like a kiss butt” in dealing with North Korea’s Kim Jong-un, the liberal pundit reveled on Wednesday in comparing Republicans to North Korean soldiers and comments by Tennessee Republican Senator Bob Corker that GOPers are part of a “cult” for enthusiastically backing President.



If you weren’t sure whether a certain phrase in the headline was a word, it’s a no but MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews tried on Tuesday night to make it one. Describing President Trump’s attempts at currying favor with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, Matthews told one of his panels that Trump didn’t come off like someone skilled in “political communiques,” but instead “like a kiss butt” and “it’s outrageous the way he talks.”



It was a case of the pot calling the kettle black on CBS’s The Late Show Monday evening, when guest Chris Matthews rallied his fellow liberals and members of the media to show the world what “moral goodness” is, while Trump’s in office.



Less than two hours before the Trump-Kim summit in Singapore, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews and panelists Elise Jordan and Bobby Ghosh declared that President Trump is a “wannabe despot” who wants to “fulfill his fantasy” by ruling the country with an iron fist while having more affection for dictators like North Korea’s Kim Jong-un than U.S. allies.



Thursday’s Hardball featured MSNBC host Chris Matthews spending two separate segments sucking up to former Obama foreign policy and intelligence officials John Brennan and Ben Rhodes, complimenting the former for “know[ing] so much” and the latter for his “beautiful” new book defending his role in the far-left Obama legacy.



Doing their part to drive another wedge into the polarizing NFL debate over national anthem protests, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews proclaimed on Tuesday night that President Trump’s strategy is to make “white guys” attending NFL games “hate” the predominantly African-American players while a panelist deemed Trump supporters on the kneeling debate to be “morons.”
