MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews took on an apocalyptic tone in the first half of Thursday’s show hours after the release of the redacted Mueller report and at least one panelist embraced it. In the second half, Matthews and his guests lobbied for Democrats to impeach President Trump with Matthews comparing America to being in a commercial break of a Law & Order episode awaiting a possible trial.
Thursday’s Hardball didn’t disappoint as host Chris Matthews and his motley crew provided screaming Notable Quotables that will take multiple posts, but the first half provided plenty to start with, including an apocalyptic opening from Matthews, a first of many pleas for impeachment, and similarly doomsday-level talk from two guests.
Was Hardball host Chris Matthews speaking to viewers Wednesday night from the past? Because it sure felt like Matthews had rewound back to March 22 because, just as things were on the day the Mueller report officially concluded, the mood of the MSNBC pundit was DEFCON-1 screeching all hour about how the Mueller report rollout “looks like an inside job.”
Has Chris Matthews developed amnesia and forgotten about his borderline erotic love for Barack Obama? And did Omarosa forget about her line about Trump critics that sounded like she was channeling the Superman line “kneel before Zod?” On Tuesday’s Hardball, that must have been the case for both as they repeatedly mocked “Stepford Vice President” Mike Pence’s “unflinching support and adoring gaze” for President Trump as if he were “the Lord.”
MSNBC’s Hardball took quite a bizarre turn on Tuesday when far-left MSNBC contributor Zerlina Maxwell attempted to sing the praises of colleague Malcolm Nance when fellow panelist Andrew Sullivan blurted out “Jesus Lord” in disgust that Maxwell (or presumably anyone) would cite such a “complete fantasist” who “spreads so many conspiracy theories and nonsense.”
Now that the liberal media have had a few weeks since Attorney General Bill Barr’s March 24 letter on the Mueller report, liberal journalists and pundits have returned to insisting that Trump-Russian collusion still took place and it affected voters and thus rendered Trump an illegitimate President. Not surprisingly, that nonsense was alive and well on Thursday’s Hardball.
In the first 15 minutes of Wednesday’s Hardball, MSNBC pundit Chris Matthews and an assembled crew of cringeworthy guests to defend the Obama administration’s surveillance of the Trump campaign under the guise of alleged Russian collusion (built on some dubious pieces to begin with) while decrying the use of the word “spying.”
Appearing as a guest on MSNBC's Hardball show, former MSNBC political analyst and liberal author Ron Reagan made his latest incendiary attack on Republicans as he declared that President Donald Trump's base do not mind family separations at the border as long as it is "little brown babies being thrown in cages." In addition to Reagan's obnoxious commentary, the segment also depicted a classic example of the liberal media not bothering to make a distinction between legal asylum seekers who follow the law in contrast with those who illegally cross the border first and then declare asylum when they get caught.
Despite early election predictions in Israel late Tuesday ranging from a split vote to a slim victory for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews showed his disdain for both Netanyahu and President Trump, suggesting the President’s policy moves (directly and indirectly) related to the Middle East were solely to exercise improper influence on the election.
Talk about a turn of events from a few weeks ago. MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews closed out Thursday’s show on a hopeful note that the Mueller report bodes ill for President Trump and his orbit and a love note for the news media being “ready to carry” the “truth” of “public servants” wanting to take down the Trump administration “into the grace of public light.”
For MSNBC on Wednesday, the mood was ebullient as, thanks to an extremely vague, wrathful, and anonymously-sourced New York Times piece that unknown Mueller probe members have complained to “associates” that Attorney General Bill Barr’s characterizations of the Mueller report’s findings are somehow incorrect. On Hardball, the closing panel gloated as if all options are back on the table because Barr and the President might have conspired to put out “false information” to hide “amazing information.”
MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews closed Tuesday’s program by reminding viewers that, while he’s a cartoonish rich, white liberal, he’s still more of Democrat from yesteryear given his career on the Hill and in the White House as opposed to a rabid socialist. Matthews illustrated that by reminding 2020 Democrats that their far-left proposals might not fly in a general election.
