    MSNBC Hardball host Chris Matthews said Monday that the GOP’s “secret weapon” to maintain its congressional majority is to attack House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) because she is an “ethnic sort of person.” “I will reserve judgment — 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,” Matthews said.

    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...

    NBC made a separation-related payment years ago to an employee who worked for Chris Matthews after she accused him of sexual harassment, according to a report Saturday. The unidentified woman, a former assistant producer on his MSNBC show, "Hardball with Chris Matthews," told company executives that Matthews made inappropriate remarks and jokes about her with others present, the Daily Caller reported. After a review, Matthews received a formal reprimand, but determined that his comments towards the woman were only childish and inappropriate and not meant as propositions. Sources told the outlet that NBC paid the woman $40,000 in a 1999...

    (That thrill wasn't up his leg!) An MSNBC spokesman confirmed Saturday the company made a separation-related payment to one of Chris Matthews employees after the woman complained about sexual harassment. Two sources familiar with the situation told The Daily Caller that Matthews paid $40,000 to settle with an assistant producer on his show, “Hardball with Chris Matthews,” in 1999 after she accused him of harassment. An MSNBC spokesperson contested that claim to the Caller, saying the company instead paid significantly less as part of a severance package.

  • Chris Matthews: ‘The Worst You Can Say About Democrats Is They’re Too Pure’

    MSNBC’s Chris Matthews said Thursday that Democrats are setting such a high standard for personal property that they can only be criticized for their purity. Matthews described the pain that Democrats went through to "sacrifice" the "respected" Sen. Al Franken (D., Minn.) in the service of purifying the party. Franken announced his resignation Thursday in the face of mounting allegations of groping, although he focused his speech on accusing Republicans of wrongdoing and insisting that he is not guilty. Matthews ascribed Franken’s resignation to Democrats’ strong support of women’s rights, and he asked his guests if this would cause more...

    Joe Biden will be running for President of the United States in 2020 - no ifs, ands or buts, at least according to Chris Matthews, host of MSNBC's "Hardball." "I’ve talked to his family. He's running. OK? Fact," Matthews said Friday following an appearance at NBC10 promoting his new book, "Bobby Kennedy: A Raging Spirit." Biden, President Obama's vice president and a popular seven-time senator from Delaware, is a "regular guy," Matthews says, who would rather summer at casual Rehoboth Beach than tony Martha’s Vineyard. It's Biden’s everyday sensibility that could help him attract working-class whites, a group Matthews believes...

    Hot Air ^ | October 6, 2017 | Allahpundit
    This makes twice in 10 days that a host on MSNBC has openly marveled at the idea that many, many Americans believe their rights come from God and are recognized in the Constitution rather than derive from the Constitution itself. How can it be that this idea is so inexplicably foreign, even accounting for MSNBC’s left-wing bias? They know the percentage of the country that’s religious; they’ve read that not-unimportant bit in the Declaration of Independence about men being “endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights”; they’ve read a treatise or two on natural law while in college; they’ve...

    The Robinson woman who pulled off the largest embezzlement scheme in Western Pennsylvania history, and maybe the entire state, is headed to federal prison for more than eight years. U.S. District Judge Nora Barry Fischer on Thursday imposed a term of 100 months on Cynthia Mills, 56, who admitted she stole nearly $13 million from North Shore-based Matthews International Corp. over 16 years. The prison term includes extra time for hiding assets from the government — mostly jewelry and other valuables — after her initial guilty plea in March. "Certainly this case involves a long-term, sophisticated scheme of deception. It's...

    Tennessee Titans wide receiver Rishard Matthews was one of many NFL players who felt personally attacked by President Donald Trump's comments over the weekend against the NFL and its protesting players, most notably the "son of a bitch" reference, and Matthews plans to use his platform to advance the protest. "I plan to kneel until the president apologizes for the comments that he made, because I felt like those were very disrespectful comments that he made," Matthews said on ESPN's NFL Live on Tuesday. "The league is made up of, I think, ... over 70 percent African-Americans, so the people...

    MSNBC anchor Chris Matthews compared President Donald Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner and daughter Ivanka Trump to former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein's kids on Monday night. "Let me just say, you know, we kid," Matthews said. "I kid about everything, but Uday and Qusay working for Saddam Hussein – you couldn’t go to a restaurant and have eye contact with those guys without getting killed. These people are really powerful. Imagine getting into a fight in the office with Jared or Ivanka, they have enormous power, and they’re always gonna be there." Politico reporter Annie Karni responded that this is what...

    MSNBC "Hardball" host Chris Matthews said on Tuesday that he had a "hard time" saying "President Trump," and suggested President Donald Trump at times was more like a "blogger" than President. "It seems like that guy like he's some blogger. He's not the president," Matthews said after recalling Trump's previous speculations about former President Barack Obama and Sen. Ted Cruz's (R., Texas) father. "When he gets up at dawn and starts tweeting, that doesn't seem like an official statement from a president. It strikes me as the guy who used to say Obama was [an] illegal immigrant or that Ted...

    Chris Matthews and the Goofy Looking Dude from the Southern Poverty Law Center have a point: We do not have any evidence Donald Trump did not personally knock over 200 headstones in a Jewish graveyard in St. Louis. But they were sure if Trump did not do it, then some of his supporters did and everyone knows that. The further from St. Louis you get, the less insane that sounds. Because in St. Louis, large-scale vandalism and criminality is a black thing -- not a political thing.   The Trump tombstone desecration was just the warmup. Chris and the Goofy Looking Dude said Trump...

    On Wednesday, MSNBC’s “Hardball” host Chris Matthews stated of the unrest outside presumptive GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump’s rally in New Mexico, “I don’t think they’re that violent.” Matthews said, while talking to Albuquerque Police Officer Tanner Tixier “I don’t see violence yet. I did see that police car with the windshield smashed. I’ve heard about other incidents of violence — low-key violence so far.”

    During the network’s coverage of Donald Trump’s Indiana primary victory speech, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews was caught on a live microphone commenting on the appearance of Melania Trump, the Republican nominee’s wife. “Did you see her walk? Runway walk. My God is that good,” Matthews said. It appeared that the 70-year-old “Hardball” host wasn’t aware his comments were being broadcast. “I could watch that runway show,” he added.
