Speaking to reporters in the Google media lounge at the RNC convention, RNC chairman Reince Priebus fired back a comment at MSNBC's Chris Matthews, who earlier berated Republicans for playing the "race card."

"If somebody wants to grab the flag and try to be the biggest jerk in the room sometimes you just let them go," Priebus said.

Video captured by the Examiner's Philip Klein.

More from the Examiner's Hayley Peterson.

Heh Heh Heh

Have to agree with Priebus, of course Chrissy is the biggest jerk in the room more often than not.

LOL,It gets even better!

.............

Asked whether he would ever appear on MSNBC again, Priebus said he would.

“I don’t really care — I mean it doesn’t matter,” Priebus said. “If more than 10 people actually watched [Chris Matthews’] show I would actually care but they don’t so whatever.”

Looks like it was filmed on a cell phone.

It’s a good grab, sure looks and sounds like Priebus! HA!

The only reason I wouldn’t agree outright is that I’m not entirely sure who else was in the room.

It’s kinda fun to see a Republican, ANY REPUBLICAN, say something like that about Miss Chrissy. HA!

You make a good point, Joe Scarborough and Tom Brokaw were in the room.

I wouldn’t call Chris Matthews a jerk. No, I’d call him a big, giant, festering, flamming - thing that would get me banned if I said it. That’s what I’d call him, but I wouldn’t call him a jerk!

Ouch! That's gonna leave a mark! LOL

Chrissy needs to just go crawl back into his bottle.

Chris M. is a disgrace to the journalism community. To think to his left is Tom Brokaw and he still has the nuts to act in this disgusting perpetuated fashion is embarrassing.

“You got your monologue in, so congratulations,” Priebus quipped to Matthews. “You’re loaded up, you got it out. So, good for you...

It couldn't be that Priebus was making a underhanded reference to the fact that Chrissy Matthews so often appears to be drunk while on-the-air...
