Exactly four years before Joe Biden cursed at a voter and appeared to threaten him with physical violence, Trump campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, grabbed a reporter by the arm. Both events triggered national media coverage, but even though Biden is the actual candidate and Lewandowski just a staffer, it was the Lewandowski moment four years ago that triggered the most coverage, and the most negative commentary.
What a difference a political party makes. In 2019, ABC political analyst Matthew Dowd linked Donald Trump’s “rhetoric” and tone to a shooting at a synagogue. Yet, on Tuesday, he cheered an unhinged Joe Biden moment in which the Democrat berated and threatened a “horse’s ass,” “full of shit” voter.

During an appearance on ABC’s This Week on Sunday, FiveThirtyEight senior writer Perry Bacon Jr. made a 2020 election prediction that the other members of the liberal panel didn’t want to hear: President Donald Trump, though unpopular, had a “very good chance” at getting reelected. All because the Democratic candidates were growing more unpopular by the day.
Former Bush official-turned-liberal-turned-ABC News chief political analyst-turned-special correspondent Matthew Dowd found himself in hot water on Wednesday after the first set of impeachment hearings, tweeting a sexist attack against Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (R-NY).

“I would be acting as a juror,” Republican Senator Susan Collins (ME) explained to the press as to why she would not be prejudging President Trump ahead of a possible Senate impeachment trial. But that wasn’t a good enough reason, according to the way the folks on ABC’s Good Morning America were huffing on Sunday.
On ABC's This Week with George Stephanopoulos on Sunday, political analyst Matthew Dowd lamented that the media judged the Robert Mueller hearings on their optics or entertainment value...and forget that the Democrats told us this would be the "movie" that would bring the Mueller Report to vivid life.

Despite President Trump’s strong condemnation of the recent synagogue shooting at the Chabad of Poway and anti-Semitism as a whole at a rally Saturday night, ABC political analyst Matthew Dowd blamed Trump for the shooting during Sunday’s This Week on ABC.

The panel on ABC’s This Week Sunday expressed their reservations about President Trump’s decision to nominate former Presidential candidate Herman Cain and former economic adviser to the Trump campaign Stephen Moore to the Federal Reserve Board; with a particular focus on Cain.

ABC commentator and faux-Republican, Matthew Dowd has made a name for himself with the bizarre and false things he has said over the years.
