    1. Obama Replays Sick Middle School Burn In response, Obama mocked Romney’s statement: “The 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back because…the Cold War’s been over for 20 years.” 2. Clinton: It’s So Last Season To Be Concerned About Russia Hillary Clinton got in on the action, saying it was “somewhat dated” to be worried about Russia. The self-titled “pantsuit aficionado” should probably stop judging other people for doing things that are “dated,” am I right? 3.Joe Biden: It May Be A Gaffe; I Would Know Vice President Joe Biden suggested Romney’s assertion might’ve been either...
  • Chris Matthews is mad as hell about Justice Kennedy, takes it out on co-workers - (Video Gold)

    Chris Matthews is mad as hell, and he's not going to take it anymore. In fact, as far as the media personalities who have reacted poorly to news this week that Justice Anthony Kennedy will retire at the end of July are concerned, Matthews ranks among the worst. "I don't think the Democrats should allow even meetings to occur with Trump's nominee to fill this vacancy by Justice Kennedy," the MSNBC host said in response to the bombshell announcement, adding that if Kennedy “gets replaced by a hardline social conservative, it is — the Democratic leadership will have hell to...

    MSNBC anchor Chris Matthews said on Wednesday that Democrats shouldn't even take meetings with President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee – who is yet to be named – to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy. "I don't think the Democrats should allow even meetings to occur with Trump's nominee to fill this vacancy by Justice Kennedy," Matthews said. Kennedy announced Wednesday he would retire, giving Trump the opportunity to make two appointments in two years to the nation's highest court. The vacancy sets up a bitter confirmation fight right before the midterm elections, where Republicans only have a single vote majority in...

    Matthews seemed to suggest that Democrats should block the appointment of a conservative judge until after the midterms, citing Republicans blocking Merrick Garland when Obama was president. “The base will attack the leadership for this, if they allow it to happen, and they should,” Matthews said of Democrats. “This is a time for vengeance for what happened two years ago, and if they don’t reap the vengeance now with four and a half months to go before the election, they will not look very strong to their base, and I think they’ll be under attack.”

    The pundit class have officially snapped over the Trump administration’s zero-tolerance border enforcement policy. Since Friday, the collective breakdown has yielded a total of 22 instances in which cable news commentators compared the separation of parents and children illegally entering the country to World War II-era war crimes and human rights violations. The Holocaust was invoked 12 times across CNN and MSNBC between June 15 and the 18th, generally in the form of comparisons between DHS detention centers and Nazi concentration camps. There were also six mentions of Japanese-American internment camps, as well as four comparisons to slavery. On Friday,...

    Have you noticed how frustrated much of the liberal media has become over the lack of any evidence of Trump-Russia collusion? Well, Thursday's Rolling Stone devoted a long article by Tessa Stuart giving one excuse after another why no such collusion has been discovered, How the House Intelligence Committee Collapsed on Adam Schiff.The subtitle is "The inside story of the California Democrat's failed crusade to investigate Donald Trump." However the big story here is contained in the very first paragraph in which it is revealed that Chris Matthews, obviously frustrated by Adam Schiff's appearances on Hardball in which nothing new...

    In the wake of today’s Texas school shooting, Chris Matthews, on his MSNBC show this evening, suggested that South Africans look down on the US, wondering “what’s with America?” Matthews might have wanted to check his stats before Blaming America First. Intentional homicide rate per 100,000 inhabitants: United States: 4.88, South Africa: 34.27. That’s right: the homicide rate in South Africa is more than seven times that in the US.Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    How wildly irresponsible was the speculation by this MSNBC guest? So bad that even Chris Matthews instructed viewers to ignore it. On this evening’s Hardball, a lawyer named Katie Phang imagined that President Trump has refused to acknowledge having had an affair with Stormy Daniels because: “There is an exceptional ‘cheat clause’ with his prenuptial agreement that he has with Melania Trump.” That bit of conjecture was more than even Matthews could stomach: Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    In December, the Daily Caller reported on the “verbally abusive” environment that Chris Matthews has created on the Hardball set, adding that people “felt like they had to ‘walk on eggshells’ around their ‘abusive’ boss.” Matthews flashed that thin skin on this evening’s Hardball. When guest David Corn politely pointed out that the TV series in question was “Homeland,” not “Homefront” as Matthews had said, Matthews snapped: “You going to keep correcting me?” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Full title: Matthews on GOP Attacks on Pelosi: GOP Likes Attacking Coastal People Who Are ‘Usually Ethnic’ – It’s ‘Ethnic Politics’ While discussing Republican attacks on House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Monday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Hardball,” host Chris Matthews referred to attacks on Pelosi as “ethnic politics” and stated that attacking people from the coasts who are “usually ethnic” is an old tactic by Republicans. Matthews said, “Picking on somebody from one of the coasts, usually ethnic, and making them the poster person of the Democratic Party is old business for the Republicans. They did it with —...

    On July 14, 2003, a Robert Novak column in The Washington Post outed the CIA-agent wife of vociferous Bush administration critic, Ambassador Joseph C. Wilson. Thus was born the "Plame Affair" which quickly became a morality tale of how an out of control Bush Administration would do anything to justify its war in Iraq. A mere three days later, journalist David Corn, summarized the allegations that would color reporting on the Iraq War for the next three years and eventually lead to the indictment of a top aide to the vice president for lying to a grand jury: ((((THE OLD...

    Chris Matthews has taken Trump-hatred to a new level. On his MSNBC show this evening, Matthews analogized Trump to someone . . . who was charged with murder. Said Matthews: “Remember George Zimmerman, the stand-your-ground guy from Florida, who pulled a gun and killed somebody, in self-defense he said cause he had the right to fight anybody who approached him? And I get, that’s what the president here is doing.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Left wingers in Congress and the media are in full blown panic mode and right this minute are stomping their feet over the removal of Andrew McCabe from his position at the FBI. Both Carl Bernstein and Chris Matthews are characterizing it as a "Saturday Night Massacre." That signals their game plan for the coming disaster they are soon to have on their hands. Nancy Pelosi is close to being aphasic. Jake Tapper has abandoned all his journalistic cred in favor of editorializing: “Leading the Russia investigation could be hazardous to your career,” Tapper said at the top of the hour....

    Appearing on this evening’s Hardball, Rep. Karen Bass, a Democrat and leader of the Congressional Black Caucus, twice accused Republican Senators Tom Cotton and David Perdue of “flat-out lying” by saying that they didn’t hear President Trump refer to various countries as “s—holes.” Bass then took things an ugly step further, insinuating that President Trump might have bribed the two senators in some way. Said Bass: “I think that they’re flat-out lying. And maybe they’re getting something from the President for it.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, host of “Hardball,” was conspicuously absent from a scheduled “Meet The Press” appearance on Sunday morning. Matthews announced the scheduled appearance on a pre-taped episode of “Hardball” on Friday, and it was noted in the Friday edition of POLITICO’s Playbook. Matthews may have chosen to sit out the appearance because of a 2016 video uncovered by New York Magazine’s The Cut late Friday, which showed him joking about drugging and raping then-presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. “This was a terrible comment I made in poor taste during the height of the Bill Cosby headlines,” Matthews told The Cut....

    "Where’s that Bill Cosby pill I brought with me?" he said in leaked audio published by 'New York' magazine. MSNBC anchor Chris Matthews has apologized for making an inappropriate joke about Bill Cosby before an interview with then-candidate Hillary Clinton on the campaign trail in January 2016. "Can I have some of the queen's waters? Precious waters?" Matthews is heard and shown saying in a clip obtained and published by New York magazine's The Cut on Friday.

    On January 5, 2016, MSNBC Hardball host Chris Matthews interviewed Hillary Clinton in an Iowa fire station during the Democratic primary season. Network footage obtained by the Cut shows Matthews, during the interview setup, making a couple of “jokes” about Clinton. He asks, “Can I have some of the queen’s waters? Precious waters?” And then, as he waits for the water, he adds, “Where’s that Bill Cosby pill I brought with me?” Matthews then laughs, delighted with the line, for an extended moment, as the staffers around him react with disbelief, clearly uncomfortable.

    Looks like calling President Trump unstable and unfit isn’t enough for liberals like Chris Matthews. The Hardball host has now resorted to claiming that Trump reminds him of a homicidal freak from a “Twilight Zone” episode. On this evening’s Hardball, Matthews, speaking to “Fire and Fury” author Michael Wolff, said: “I really mean this, when I was reading your book . . . the mood in yours is a different sense, it’s a scary sense. It reminds me of that Twilight [Zone] episode, way back in the 60s, where there’s this kid with auto-kinetic powers. "Ferocious kid with no mental...
