Fierce GOP critic Chris Matthews of MSNBC got into a confrontation with some delegates to the convention early Friday morning and showed why he is a hypersensitive lout.
Matthews told The Hill in a phone interview that after he left the restaurant, he heard a group of guys "heckling" and "hooting and hollering" at him.
He headed back into the restaurant to mix it up with them. "I wanted to confront them," Matthews said, describing his exchange with the men as "towel-snapping" among guys.
Matthews said he told the rowdy group, "What's this, a douchebag convention?"
How classy. It gets better:
In a statement emailed to The Hill on Friday afternoon, Matthews said, "I was talking to this 2 a.m. get-together of loud-talking people who had been heckling me from inside a restaurant and were now huddled together around a table. It was that get-together, right there in front of me; that was the 'convention' I was towel-snapping about. When The Hill called me and suggested I might have been referring to the Republican National Convention I couldn't believe it. That's wrong."
He added, "I was trying in my way to engage, as I often do, with critics, hoping to find some common ground. Sometimes it works out better than this."
Sal Bacarella, who was in town to attend the convention, told The Hill that when Matthews entered the restaurant, New York City Councilman Eric Ulrich, a GOP delegate, waved to him. But Matthews snubbed Ulrich, according to Bacarella.
Ulrich then attempted to acknowledge Matthews as the "Hardball" host exited the restaurant, a gesture that Matthews answered with a "dirty look," prompting loud boos from other delegates at the restaurant, Bacarella said.
One convention-goer yelled out "hey, a--hole,".............

...not holding up well for 66...
....mentally or physically.
Mmmm...both. He needs a little more sun.
66? I'm going to be 3 years older than him in 12 days? I'm overweight for sure, but I look a lot younger than him. I have a buddy who's going to be 80 this week. He looks like a kid compared to this idiot. That's what hate will do to you.
hahaha. crissy was already mad..Newt cleaned his clock this week.
Agreed...I know a number of people in their mid-sixties that look better than Matthews...of course; none of them are rabid, to the best of my knowledge.
See? A little sun goes a long ways... :-)
Experiencing so much stimulation of the more primitive areas of the brain,as Chrissy has recently with all those “thrills”,can age one prematurely.One sees a similar result in chronic meth users.
That may play a role. But this guy is consumed by hate. This convention wasn't going the way he wanted. He's marginalized at MSNBC. He thinks he's important, yet doesn't get the respect he thinks he deserves because there's no fan base. Is he going to go back into a restaurant and confront a bunch of customers? You bet.
For years I’ve been telling Chrissy to get off the juice, but maybe he needs more of it. An alcohol induced stupor might give him a semblance of wit, somewhat the better than his glib spite. But not to pass on an easy shot, the comeback was spot on.
I am screwed
Towel snapped face, looking mf...
Rabid defines him. There have been enough threads over the past week to confirm that. The man has staked himself out as the rabid race baiter. He’s shown himself to be a disgusting, deranged, face of racism in America. And Newt’s responses to him were icing on the cake. No wonder he’s mad.
Why because of your age? Because you don’t look your age? Hey, there are things you can do about that.
there’s something seriously wrong with his guy
his = this
And clean living...
