As a diehard and committed liberal (progressive if you prefer), I believe in "fair is fair", and we report and comment accordingly.
MSNBC's Chris Matthews has again opened his mouth in developing a potential scenario should Donald Trump pull out of the Thursday night GOP Debate. Matthews spoke about the lack of interest in two Cuban Guys (Rubio and Cruz) debating on Thursday. "Two Cuban guys?" The comment was as bigoted as I have heard and, frankly racist, since considering Matthews frequently comments about his Irish DNA.
Matthew's oral diarrhea flows far too much even for the nascent right lean of MSNBC. Let's move past the fact the Thursday stage will also have debaters who are not Cuban, to more relevant comment about Matthews. During the past few years, I have personally heard Matthews quip and giggle about his perception of how President Obama would spend his final two years in office. "A real Chief Executive?" It takes only minutes to seek and locate reams of information about President Obama as a Chief Executive. Matthews played to his conservative viewers without regard from Obamas first six years with no cooperation for Republicans and Obama's accomplishments.
I offer another example of Matthews as a former progressive who seems to seek a more conservative audience. The mush-mouthed host frequently refers to African-Americans as "the Blacks," and he often refers it Islamic terrorist "Jihadi Islamicists."
If those example of a Neo-con Matthews, it is worth noting he has more than once mentioned his psychic proximity to Rand Paul (on certain issues).
Mediate published an early evening piece about Matthews latest flirts with right-wing viewers. While some may not recognize the reality is Matthews exercised a decided degree of white privilege.
MSNBC host Chris Matthews bashed the idea of a Donald Trump-free Republican debateTuesday, asking why anyone would care about a debate between “the Cuban guys.”
“Who is going to watch a debate between the two Cuban guys?” theHardball host said dismissively. “Who is going to watch a debate between Rubio, Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz. Who cares?”
