On Tuesday’s Hardball, MSNBC host Chris Matthews and MSNBC contributor/Obama-era CIA Director John Brennan openly speculated whether President Trump has told the CIA to not carry out covert operations or compile intelligence against North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un and that he would willfully accept help from the Russians to get him reelected.
Even though he was coming from the rabidly pro-impeachment camp, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews was apoplectic Tuesday night with Congressman Eric Swalwell (D-CA) and his colleagues on the left for their lack of progress in trying to rid America of Donald Trump. In the span of over three minutes, Matthews blasted them for “never get[ting] anything done” on impeachment, calling witnesses against the President, and for bringing in CNN contributor John Dean for a “ridiculous” hearing.
MSNBC hosts Ari Melber and Chris Matthews trash Nancy Pelosi's line that, rather than seeing President Trump impeached, she'd like to see him "in prison." Melber suggests it's the equivalent of President Trump's "lock her up" line, and Matthews says it's worthy of a "rinky-dink, fourth-world" country like "Pakistan."
While the liberal media on-site spent portions of Thursday chastising President Trump for his Ingraham Angle interview in the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial prior to his moving speech marking the 75th anniversary of D-Day, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews told viewers that he was uneasy with his colleagues in the press “talk[ing] nasty boy politics in front of the graves.” How refreshing!
While the media have been eager to use the 75th anniversary of the D-Day invasion as an occasion to smear President Trump, 10 years ago, coverage of the day went very differently. In 2009, as Barack Obama prepared to attend the first D-Day anniversary of his of presidency, MSNBC's adulation of him reached new heights when then-Newsweek editor Evan Thomas told Hardball host Chris Matthews that Obama was “sort of God.”
With Thursday marking the 75th anniversary of the Allied invasion along the northern coast of France known as D-Day, news organizations have been offering special coverage with incredibly powerful, substantive, and fitting tributes to both those lost that day, since then, and those remaining veterans. But then there’s Wednesday’s Hardball on MSNBC and guest Bill Nye the Science Guy comparing the need to fight climate change to D-Day.
Along with many comrades in the liberal media, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews was incensed that all of President Trump’s adult children joined him on his State Visit this week to the United Kingdom, belly-aching on Tuesday’s show about the “ridiculous” modern-day “Romanovs” going overseas projecting a sense of royalty.
On Monday's Hardball and during a town hall with 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg, host Chris Matthews failed to make an obvious point of pushback when the Democratic presidential candidate talked up his plan to require national gun registration for all new purchases as a way of allegedly curtailing gun violence.
Democratic presidential candidates had it super easy when they showed up for interviews on cable and network shows this past month. Candidates like Beto O’Rourke, Cory Booker and Pete Buttieg were greeted by hosts who bragged about owning their campaign t-shirts and asked them hard-hitting questions like “are you too nice?” and “what can we do better” to help your candidacy? Those same news outlets trashed Donald Trump as “sociopath” whose rhetoric has ramped up a “body count” of dead children. The following are the most obnoxious moments of media bias over the last month.
So much for standing up for decency. On the Thursday installment of MSNBC’s Hardball, host Chris Matthews and anti-Trump Republican J.W. Verret smeared House Republicans who support the President as “disgusting” and “junior officers behind Kim Jong-un in his rallies” who risk being murdered if they stray from or upset the country’s communist dictator in any way.
Someone call Mulder and Scully because MSNBC contributor and raging lunatic Malcolm Nance wants to learn your ways so he can find the Trump-Russia collusion that he believes is still out there. On Wednesday’s Hardball, Nance did that in showing frustration with Special Counsel Robert Mueller for not declaring there to have been a criminal conspiracy, going as far as to screech that “this story is not over.”
No, that headline is correct. MSNBC host Chris Matthews opened Wednesday’s Hardball by channeling the famous line from William Shakespeare’s Hamlet to declare that’s come time for House Democrats to put up or shut up when it comes to impeachment. Not surprisingly, Matthews identified with the former, especially following this “day of history” with Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s public statement.
