    Ruh-roh: sounds like the Dems have a hesitant, ill-prepared accuser on their hands in the person of Christine Ford. On this evening's Hardball, Politico reporter Annie Karni said: "She is not used to the public spotlight. She is not used to Washington politics. She is from what I understand not yet at all ready for this kind of grilling that she's going to be walking into. Which is part of the delay, which is part of the back and forth whether she wants to do it or not."Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Beto O'Rourke is as Hispanic as Elizabeth Warren is Native-American. The Dem candidate for Senate from Texas is, in fact, a fourth-generation Irish American. But that doesn't stop Victoria DeFrancesco, on the faculty of the Department of Mexican-American and Latino Studies at UT-Austin, giving "Beto" the full Spanish pronunciation of his first name as a guest on Chris Matthews' MSNBC show this evening.

    So what does Chris Matthews foresee for President Trump: hanging by the ankles like Mussolini, or firing squad like Ceausescu? On his MSNBC “Hardball” show, after former acting CIA director John McLaughlin referred to President Trump as a “tyrant,” Matthews says: “Following your lines, I’ve often thought that demagoguery is not a good long-term career move. The only one I know that got a long-time career out of it was [Spain’s Generalissimo] Franco. The rest of them all died hideously.”Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    The Democratic National Committee is refusing to play the Republican National Committee in their annual softball game this year. “The RNC-DNC softball game was an annual tradition and a time to put aside politics. It’s a shame @TheDemocrats are refusing to participate this year,” RNC chairwoman Ronna McDaniel posted to Twitter. Sources at the RNC told the Daily Caller that they were “stunned” when Democrats pulled out of the typically good-natured game between leadership staffers that had gone on for the last decade. The source said that the DNC informed them that “all our players are out in the field...

    “The most important thing to them is that Trump seems to hate the same people they hate,” Ron Reagan says. The son of former President Ronald Reagan believes Donald Trump’s political base is so consumed by hatred for the Democrats that they would vote for Vladimir Putin to be America’s president instead of virtually any member of that party. “They really aren’t in touch with reality. The most important thing to them [is that Trump] seems to hate the same people that they hate,” Ron Reagan told Chris Matthews on MSNBC’s “Hardball” on Thursday. “That’s the real Trump derangement syndrome.”...

    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 Sunday's AM Joy on MSNBC, as frequent guest Jennifer Rubin was finally being credited as an "MSNBC political analyst," the alleged "conservative" Washington Post columnist demonstrated that she will continue to use her new MSNBC contributor status to deliver liberal analysis as she demonized a Republican guest by asking her if she is an "inhumane beast" who was "raised by wolves." Notably, just a couple of days ago, Rubin declared that she still wishes to be identified as a "conservative" when Hardball host Chris Matthews wondered if he should drop the "conservative" label for her as he admitted that...

    With the latest sexual harassment news about MSNBC's Chris Matthews having to pay a $40,000 settlement to an assistant producer for Hardball in 1999, can anybody be really surprised? The reason is that Matthews over the years has a record of very strange behavior of a leering nature around women, much of it recorded for posterity. Two notable examples are presented below, starting with the the uncomfortable 2007 incident in which Matthews asked then-CNBC's Street Signs host Erin Burnett to lean in closer to the camera so he could get a better look at her (and presumably her chest).

    MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews was back and firing on all cylinders Monday night, overseeing a show devoid of reason as it linked conservatives, Republicans, and anyone in the “right-wing” to the KKK, neo-Nazis, and white supremacists associated with Saturday’s Charlottesville terrorism.  Matthews also showed ineptitude in not knowing until very recently that progressive heartthrob and President Woodrow Wilson loved the KKK film Birth of a Nation so much that he had it shown at the White House. Out of Control ‘Hardball’ Lumps GOP in with Neo-Nazis, Shocked Wilson Loved ‘Birth of a Nation’He began his show with a personal summation...

    President Donald Trump was compared to another murderous world dictator on Thursday night as MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews suggested Trump is just like former Ugandan dictator Idi Amin and North Korea’s Kim Jong-un since Trump and Kim “love the parades” where they can serve as the star alongside military demonstrations. The comparison arose while Matthews and his Hardball Roundtable discussed Trump’s latest blockbuster New York Times interview where the President raved about the crowds he claimed were there to see him at the Eiffel Tower and the immaculate Bastille Day parade he witnessed.

    That moment when one fake news outlet attacks another fake news outlet, as reported by yet another fake news outlet. This is getting extremely fake-complicated.: Dean Baquet, the fake editor of the fakest fakety fakey fake Newspaper of Record, the New York Times, got all sassy regarding the fake news competition yesterday. He told an interviewer with another fake news outlet – The Hill – that the new slogan adopted by the Washington Post, “Democracy Dies in the Dark”, “sounds like the next Batman movie.” Oooooh, burn!

    As NewsBuster Geoffrey Dickens has noted, Ben Affleck appeared on yesterday evening's edition of Hardball. And while it's true that the actor/director/Dem activist offered a generally innocuous analysis, he did manage to engage in a bit of religious bigotry. Affleck's foul foray arose in the course of his discussion of the way the various Republican candidates have dealt with the issue of evolution and creationism. Talk turned to the former governor of Arkansas. BEN AFFLECK: I think Huckabee actually framed his position in a much less dramatic way than had been made out. Which was he said it could...

    Chris Matthews at Center of NBC’s Latest News Scandal MSNBC “Hardball” host Chris Matthews isn’t much for keeping his promises of transparency when it involves political contributions to his wife’s congressional campaign. Last June, the blabbermouth commentator insisted on his show that he would be “transparent and fair in our coverage” after his wife, Kathleen, announced that she was running as a Democrat for the open seat in Maryland’s 8th District. Since then, Kathleen Matthews, a former news anchor and Marriott exec, has received a total of $79,050 in campaign contributions from prominent former and current politicians featured on her...

I agree with your one point or a lot of what she says. But when Reince Priebus’—his number one goal is to keep blacks from voting.” Both of Matthews's guests, Republican strategist Matt Schlapp and April Ryan of American Urban Radio Networks, who is liberal and African-American, were caught off guard and shocked by his comment. “No, no, no, no, no. He’s talking about getting...
