Chris Matthews was baffled Monday night that President Trump had not yet decided to abandon Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh based on the recent sexual assault allegation against him. During a segment on Hardball, the MSNBC host insisted that Kavanaugh must be guilty and that the nomination was “cooked,” concluding that the President’s refusal to rescind that nomination suggested he was “incapable of facing reality.”
MSNBC’s Hardball was in rare form on Tuesday, featuring host Chris Matthews and his various guests perpetually stepping in it. It started with Matthews comparing anti-Trump books to the synoptic Gospels and it snowballed from there, ranging from Matthews touting John Kerry’s new book as being so monumental, panelists the President lacking empathy for hurricane 9/11 victims, and ending with Matthews dubbing the First Family “un-American.”
Often times when watching MSNBC’s Hardball, it’s one moment that stands out in the sea of liberal bias and tomfoolery from longtime host Chris Matthews. But in other instances, it’s a potpourri of lunacy with Matthews and guests trying to one-up each other as walking Notable Quotables. Thursday’s show was a combination of the two with Matthews doing some heavy lifting with some help from New York Times columnist and Never Trumper Brett Stephens.
Reacting on Wednesday’s Hardball to the anonymous Trump official’s self-serving New York Times op-ed, MSNBC host Chris Matthews compared it to the same clarion call offered by George Kennan in 1946 on containing communism while panelists Steve Schmidt seemingly read from a thesaurus to attack the Trump administration and Zerlina Maxwell urged the need for impeachment proceedings.
On Tuesday’s Hardball, an MSNBC panel addressed the growing concerns about social media platforms censoring conservatives, after President Trump accused Google on Twitter and yesterday in a pool press spray, of filtering results against him and of Facebook and Twitter censoring conservatives.
While there have been many respectful tributes to John McCain in the media in the past few days, there was a time when the liberal press weren’t always supportive of the war hero and independent-minded Senator from Arizona — particularly when he was getting in the way of their progressive agenda. A look back at McCain’s relationship with the press, over the decades, shows it was complicated at best.
With this past week featuring action-packed news cycles, there’s plenty of fodder for cable news and looniness emanating from liberal media talk shows. Thursday’s Hardball didn’t disappoint as MSNBC host Chris Matthews touted the latest snarky Time cover, compared President Trump to a man alone on an island late at night, and a panelist claimed that the Founding Fathers would support Trump’s impeachment.
During Tuesday’s Hardball, the indictment of California Congressman Duncan Hunter for campaign finance violations came up as host Chris Matthews made sure to point out that Hunter was not only a Republican but the second member of Congress to endorse President Trump. Matthews gleefully pointed out that the first Member in New York Congressman Chris Collins has been indicted for insider trading and lying to the FBI.
On Tuesday evening and following a whirlwind of a news day, Omarosa dropped a massive nothingburger while appearing on MSNBC’s Hardball. Host Chris Matthews peppered her with questions, in an attempt to have her get to the bottom of whether or not Trump is guilty in the eyes of the liberal media. Spoiler alert: he is.
On Monday’s edition of Hardball with Chris Matthew, former federal prosecutor Cynthia Alksne joined a discussion on the legal cases surrounding President Trump. Among the cases discussed were those concerning former Trump Campaign chairman Paul Manafort and former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen. Alksne had specific advice for Cohen, saying that “he can give the prosecutor something on Trump’s kids.”
Yes, that headline is real. In covering the effort by over 350 newspapers to collude against President Trump, Wednesday’s Hardball featured MSNBC host Chris Matthews alluding to Thomas Paine’s Common Sense and Harriet Beecher Stowe’s Uncle Tom’s Cabin in the segment promoting the anti-Trump collusion campaign started by The Boston Globe.
Well, that’s a new one that’ll have our Founders rolling in their graves. At the top of Wednesday’s Hardball, longtime MSNBC liberal Chris Matthews asserted that the feud of President Trump vs. Omarosa Manigault Newman marks “a new era in American politics, an old-fashioned duel that hearkens back to the days of Hamilton and Burr, but with a made-for-reality-TV update.”
