Leno Mocks Straight-Jacketed Matthews Being Taken Away Mid-Meltdown By Men in White Coats

As NewsBusters previously reported, MSNBC's Chris Matthews had an on-air meltdown Wednesday after the presidential debate.

NBC Tonight Show host Jay Leno mocked this incident Thursday showing a video clip of Matthews giving his rant in a straight jacket as he's being taken away by men in white coats (video follows with transcript and absolutely no need for additional commentary):

JAY LENO: And Obama supporters were livid. Oh, my god. Did you see Chris Matthews after the debate? I mean, he was just going crazy. Well, look. Show him. Show him.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

CHRIS MATTHEWS IN STRAIGHT JACKET: We have our knives out. We go after the people and the facts. What was he doing tonight?

[Two men in white coats appear and carry Matthews away]

MATTHEWS: He went there disarmed. Why did Obama say that?

[Laughter and applause]
