Despite largely salivating over the leaked copies of James Comey’s book to news outlets, there was plenty of consternation during the Thursday edition of MSNBC’s Hardball, thanks to host Chris Matthews and other guests taking issue with Comey’s “cheap stuff” going after the President’s hand size, height, and skin color.



On Tuesday’s zany edition of Hardball, MSNBC host Chris Matthews admitted during the A-block that the news media “love to play” the infamous Access Hollywood tape with President Trump over and over again because it’s “fun” and “everyone” will think the President would be “wagging the dog” to attack Syria to distract from the Mueller probe.



Following the revelation on Monday that the FBI had raided the office of Donald Trump’s lawyer, the recent developments in Syria took a back seat on MSNBC’s evening shows. However, Hardball host Chris Matthews found a creative way to tie the stories together: by predicting the President would bomb Syria to distract from the raid. 



To put it simply, cable news thrives off of speculation and little discussion of the actual news. The Tuesday edition of MSNBC’s Hardball opened with a segment perfectly encapsulating this reality with the panel gaming out how a Trump impeachment could go down, what charges he’d face, and whether he’ll be found to have violated the Logan Act in the Russia probe.



On Tuesday's Hardball on MSNBC, host Chris Matthews and liberal contributor Eddie Glaude pushed the notion that President Donald Trump engages in "race-baiting" by criticizing former President Barack Obama, and that he envies the former President, viewing him as an "uppity black person that we need to put in his place."

 



On Monday, political commentator Charlie Sykes made a guest appearance on MSNBC's Hardball With Chris Matthews, wherein he disparaged both President Trump and his base. Among his bolder assertions was the claim that the President's base didn't care "whether he actually accomplishes anything," so long as they saw him "fighting."



Thursday marked an awful, no-good, very bad day for MSNBC host Chris Matthews as President Trump picked John Bolton to replace H.R. McMaster as National Security Adviser. Less than an hour later, Matthews uncorked a hissy fit for the ages on Hardball lasting the whole show on the man he dubbed a modern Hideki Tojo and “biggest hawk there's ever been.”



Establishment press journalists are getting hot under the collar over the growing use of the term "Deep State." They imagine that only nutty conservatives and Republicans believe that the Deep State even exists. Thanks to poor show prep, MSNBC's Chris Matthews found out otherwise in embarrassing fashion on Tuesday evening's Hardball, while one of his show's presentation graphics effectively told 74 percent of Americans that they are "Deranged."



As documented on NewsBusters, CNN has a porn problem and bizarre obsession with describing the sexual escapades of porn actress Stormy Daniels and seeking sultry details of an alleged affair with President Trump. Tuesday’s The Situation Room showed this infatuation as the panel circled the wagons after a tweet by Daniels about her “NOT going anywhere.”



MSNBC host Chris Matthews has a well-known reputation for being rather eccentric and Monday night’s “Trump Watch” on Hardball was no exception. After complaining about Special Counsel Robert Mueller going “soft” on President Trump for most of the program, Matthews capped it off by oddly championing Mueller as a “starfish” caught in a “battle to the death” with Trump the “clam.”



On Thursday, the liberal media’s mood was nothing short of ebullient with a New York Times scoop that Special Counsel Robert Mueller “has subpoenaed the Trump Organization to turn over documents, including some related to Russia.” MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews was one such figure, gleefully speculating that it could “lead to Trump’s impeachment.”



On Monday's Hardball show, during a discussion of President Donald Trump's campaign rally in Pennsylvania, race-obsessed MSNBC contributor Jason Johnson declared that President Trump is "half a rally away from just using the N-word," and likened him to slave master Calvin Candie from the movie Django Unchained.
