  • Chris Matthews Makes His Own Anti-Bernie Republican Ad

    NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    If Bernie Sanders becomes the Dem nominee, the GOP might wind up having to pay royalties to Chris Matthews . . On this evening's Hardball, Matthews aired what he himself said could be an anti-Bernie Republican ad, cobbled together from clips of various radical statements Sanders has made over the years. In Chris' commercial, Sanders is seen saying he's a socialist, confirming he's not a capitalist, admitting that he applied for conscientious objector status, indicating that he would raise taxes to somewhere between 50 and 90%, and preaching political "revolution." Workers of the world: unite behind Bernie! View the video...

    If you want Chris Matthews to change his mind, just wait a minute. In just over a minute on Morning Joe today, Matthews changed his election prediction from agreeing with Joe Scarborough that Trump would win and that Bernie Sanders would squeak out a victory to changing his prediction to a win by Hillary Clinton. However, the most fascinating part of his quick change of prediction was his frozen face when put on the spot by Scarborough as weird undulations played out over the surface. A body language expert could have a field day analyzing what was going through the...

    For years MSNBC anchor Chris Matthews has accused conservatives and Republicans of opposing Barack Obama simply because he's the country‘s first black president and therefore, they're a bunch of racists. "Who‘s going to watch a debate between the two Cuban guys? Who‘s gonna watch a debate between Rubio, Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz? Who cares!" Matthews said on his show Tuesday night.

    Imagine that in some future presidential election, two Mexican-American candidates are vying for the Dem nomination. The Dem front-runner announces he won't participate in the next debate. And a conservative pundit sneeringly says "who's going to watch a debate between the two Mexican guys?" Now imagine all hell descending on that hapless conservative for his breach of political correctness. Will anything similar befall Chris Matthews? Of course not. But on Hardball this evening, as news was breaking that Donald Trump won't participate in Thursday's debate in protest over Megyn Kelly's presence on the panel, Matthews said "who's going to watch...

    MSNBC's Chris Matthews came to the defense of Hillary Clinton Tuesday afternoon, and argued that a "vast right-wing conspiracy" is working hard to undermine her dreams of winning the White House. The moment occurred as the cable news host complained that a participant in Monday's CNN town hall told Clinton to her face that many young voters don't see her as an honest person. Several recent polls show that voters have grave misgivings about Clinton's ability to tell the truth, and the ongoing federal investigation into her private State Department email server continues to dog her campaign every step...

    Hey Chris Matthews: is GloZell qualified to be President of the United States? How about John Travolta or Joy Behar?

GloZell, Travolta and Behar are all Hillary endorsers. So how about it Chris: which of them could you imagine in the Oval Office?

    But they're definitely "Cuban Nationals" Chris Matthews is lost in a quandary. He doesn’t know how to categorize Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz. Since he’s a lifelong left-winger, placing humans into the proper boxes is of the utmost importance, because it’s the only thing that informs his commentary. If he doesn’t know what they are, it’s impossible for him to formulate one of his ridiculous attacks. Specifically, he can’t figure out if Rubio and Cruz are “Hispanic.” He’s pretty sure they’re “Cuban Nationals,” but beyond that he has no idea which label he should apply, and that’s upsetting his identity...

    Sen. Ted Cruz was overshadowed during much of the first GOP debate, but he finished strong. And this might turn out to be a microcosm of his larger campaign plan. True, Donald Trump is sucking up everyones oxygen. And, yes, logic would dictate that because he occupies the same populist space as Cruz Trump would take a disproportionate number of votes from the Texas conservative. But, instead, Cruz is polling well in third place, behind Trump and Ben Carson, according to a new Fox News poll. And if Trump gets out of the race (for now, thats...

    On Sunday, Chris Matthews said Donald Trump is resonating with the little guy because he is taking on the elites who have betrayed working Americans on issues like trade and immigration. On Meet The Press, Matthews said there is a sense of betrayal because the best and the brightest have given the country away on the border, on debt, on jobs. They feel theyve been betrayed by the elite and Donald Trump ironically is fighting the elite here and the little guy is rooting for him, Matthews said. Host Chuck Todd also conceded that the the more we in the...

    Answer: Not much at all, and Debbie Wasserman Schultz knows it. When Chris Matthews attempted to press the DNC chair on whether Bernie Sanders, an avowed Socialist, would get a high-profile speaking slot at the Democratic convention even if he loses the nomination, Wasserman Schultz stammered out an affirmative, which amazed Matthews and prompted him to ask Wasserman Schultz if she saw any significant difference between Democrats and Socialists. Wasserman Schultz tried to duck the question, but provided a very telling answer by doing so (via Newsalert and Mediaite): Things Get Awkward When Matthews Asks DNC Head About Bernie Sanders,...

    Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas), a Republican presidential candidate, sparred with MSNBC host Chris Matthews on Wednesday over whether the Supreme Court has become too “partisan” following the high court’s recent decisions on Obamacare and gay marriage.Though he’s done so in the past, Cruz said he’s reluctant to advocate for “judicial retention” elections every eight years. However, he also said he’s tired of seeing some of the justices “not honoring their judicial oaths.”Matthews later insinuated hypocrisy, accusing Cruz of “loving” it when the Supreme Court “seized the presidency in 2000” for former President George W. Bush during the infamous Florida recount...

    Matthews: No one enforces immigration law because they want cheap labor - and votes for Dems Obviously, were used to a steady stream of crazy coming from the fine folks at MSNBC. Chiefest among the networks primetime calamities is Chris Matthews, whose career is basically one, long, barely-coherent rant. Every now and then, though, it feels like one of his handlers stuffs his meds into a wad of peanut butter and Chris comes through with something approaching an actual truth.

    Ted Cruz sparred with MSNBCs Chris Matthews over his proposal for judicial retention elections during an interview on Hardball Wednesday night, at one point debating the judicial propriety of allowing ballots to be recounted in Florida during the historically close 2000 presidential election between George W. Bush and Al Gore. The Texas Republican senator and presidential candidate said he is reluctant to call for elections, adding that it makes him sad but that he has done so because a majority of the justices are not honoring their judicial oaths. Is that the solution? Elections? Matthews countered. Look, if unelected judges...

    This is too good not to share. MRCs Dan Gainor wrote for Foxnews.com on the liberal tendency to describe the Republicans with the term clown car. He found that since January 1, MSNBC hosts and their guests have dragged out the phrase 38 times. Hardball host Chris Matthews by far the worst repeat offender, with 29 mentions since the beginning of the year -

    Kathleen Matthews, the wife of MSNBC personality Chris Matthews, has entered the Democratic primary to replace Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.), who is running for Senate. Matthews on Wednesday launched her campaign for Marylands 8th District House seat from downtown Silver Spring, vowing to fight for a litany of liberal causes, including equal pay for women, abortion rights, and raising the minimum wage, according to The Washington Post. Matthews is a former local news anchor. She most recently served as an executive for Marriott Hotels but stepped down from that position last month as she geared up for the House...
  • Chris Matthews: 'There Was No Intelligence Saddam Had WMD. Never'

    It's easy for people--with the possible exception of Jeb Bush--to say that they would not have supported the invasion of Iraq knowing what we know now about WMD there. But Chris Matthews took things a foolish step further on this evening's Hardball, actually claiming that "there was no intelligence they had a weapon. Never was." Really? So Hillary, Bill Clinton, John Kerry, Al Gore, Ted Kennedy et al. were collective fabricators when they issued dire warnings, based on the intelligence they had seen, about Saddam's WMD?
