Skip to comments.Chrissy Matthews can dish it out but he can't take it

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...
Well that's cool, at least he admitted he was addressing the insult to the folks in attendance.
A comment like that at 2:00 a.m in the morning should have at least gotten him slapped.....What's happened to the real men in this world?
“What’s this,douchebag convention?”
Why yes,it is.And now that the nozzle has arrived,we can get started.
Could somebody refer Chrissie to the same rehab folks that fellow Dems Bob Beckel, Jesse Jackson Jr, etc., went to?
He is on the edge right now. No doubt it is the guilt he feels condemning others for racism and greed while living in a near-$2 million home in a town of 91% wealthy white folks. That is an awful burden for a man to hold up while he goes to work in a limo driving through neighborhoods of blacks and hispanics who earn less in a year than he pays as property tax on his 3700 sq ft mansion.
"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?"And the answer was, "yes, now that you're here."
Mr. Spittle lost his tingle.
Pretty pathetic still hanging around the bars at closing time when the next oldest person is 1/3 your age.
“Newts responses to him were icing on the cake.”
“Newt cleaned his clock this week.”
Can you paraphrase - what did Newt say? Thanks!
Closet homosexual who is in denial. Check his bank account for donations from uknown sources.
.........”Matthews said Gingrichs and the GOPs rhetoric about welfare had racial undertones, rhetoric that dates to President Ronald Reagan.
This is a history we have here, Matthews said. And this lingo is so clear to every African-American watching right now.
So were not allowed to tell the truth about food stamps? he said. Come on, give me a break.
You sit here and chuckle about it as if its not a game youre playing, Matthews said. Youve got that diabolic smile of yours, and you know you think youre winning here, but everybody out there whos black or white know exactly the game thats being played here.
No, heres the game. You have the worst president, Gingrich said.”...........
“What’s this, a douchebag convention?”
No Chrissy, you are too far South and a week or so early. Besides, what do you think DNC stands for.
See post #32.
See post #29...
Oops. I mistyped. It’s post #32. Sorry.
Thank you so much. Watching now.
he just hit him with truth and laughed at Crissy..he outed his lies..there has to be a video of somewhere. maybe at FOX.I was rolling in the floor. Crissy couldnt chang subjects fast enought and New kept laughing at him. You could tell crissy was losing it.
See what good clean living does for you..
You mean Crissy doesnt really live in the ghetto?
Youve got that diabolic smile of yours, and you know you think youre winning here, but everybody out there whos black or white know exactly the game thats being played here.
He needs serious help. He should admit it, and then get it, or he should be taken off the air. No one should have to deal with this nonsense - though Newt handled it well enough.
Crissy has never lived down that stupid “thrill down my leg
remark, and it seems to be driving him crazier every day. Also, he knows his man-crush Obama is going to lose, his network is in the basement, and his own “career” is nearly over. He’s got a lot to be crazy about. We probably won’t get to see an on-air breakdown, but he may take a “long vacation” in the near future.
“Is he going to go back into a restaurant and confront a bunch of customers? You bet.”
If that little P***y wants to confront me I will show him the way to the nearest ICU. I am quite a bit older that that a$$hole but I haven’t forgotten how to do it.
If he keeps this behavior up, he’ll eventually learn that lesson. Well, maybe he won’t learn it, just experience it...
Whats this,a douchebag convention?
I read that one of the GOP folks at the table replied “no thats next week” Good comeback.
Ergo, he looks awful.
At his age, guy needs to get away, go off into the countryside somewhere, and learn to be someone else for a change. Be a shame to die and go to hell just for being an unreflective ***hole who led an unexamined life.
