A day after he wondered why terrorists always use bombs, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews spent parts of Wednesday night’s show comparing President Barack Obama to Reggie Jackson in being a clutch campaigner for Hillary Clinton this fall but worrying that the President’s jousting with Donald Trump could cause him to lose “some of his glow.”

A few segments after MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews questioned why terrorists often turn to bombs as their weapons of choice, Matthews surprisingly hammered Democratic Congressman and possible Clinton running mate Xavier Becerra on the Benghazi Committee’s findings about the administration’s inability to save Americans trapped at the ill-fated consulate.

The June 13 issue of Notable Quotables: journalists erupt with glee after Hillary Clinton becomes the first woman to clinch the Democratic nomination, as one New York Times reporter tells Bernie Sanders that it's "sexist" for him to "get in the way of what could be the first female president." Meanwhile, some journalists blame Trump for violent riots that erupted in California, while lefty writers actually recommend violence as a way to thwart Trump.

Less than 24 hours before President Barack Obama came out to endorse Hillary Clinton for president, MSNBC host Chris Matthews ended Wednesday night’s Hardball by complaining that the American people (and presumably the media too) didn’t spend enough time on Tuesday “salut[ing]” Clinton for what she’s “accomplished in this historic struggle” for women’s rights.

The Good Wife star, far-left actor, and Hillary Clinton supporter Denis O’Hare joined MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews Wednesday night to join the pundit in extolling Clinton as “an amazing success story” who had “no problems” while secretary of state to become “one of the most qualified candidates we’ve ever had.”

In an embarrassing take down for Hardball host Chris Matthews Monday, Bernie Sanders’ campaign manager Jeff Weaver invoked the failed congressional campaign of Kathleen Matthews. When asked when Sanders plans to release his tax returns Weaver parried, “I think we should follow the example, perhaps, of yourself when your wife was running for the Congress in Maryland recently. You guys didn't release any tax returns.”

On Tuesday night, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews played the role of charmer in creepily professing how attractive he found new author, friend, guest, and Democratic Senator Barbara Boxer (Calif.) that Matthews repeatedly told the audience she “look great” and expressed concern about the physical toll of traveling between California and Washington for work.

On Thursday’s Hardball, host Chris Matthews doubled down on his admission that the liberal media would “be rooting for Bernie” Sanders in a possible debate with Donald Trump because Sanders is “a true believer” and dreamed that the socialist candidate would use it to “give a wonderful soliloquy” about the need for universal health care.

MSNBC's Chris Matthews had one of his classic gaffes on Friday's Hardball as he watched live footage of Trump supporters facing off against protesters outside one of the billionaire's rallies in San Diego, California. Matthews stopped himself from calling the Trump backers "Americans," and continued by labeling them with their apparent political ideology: "So we hear 'USA'  from the Amer — well, the people taking the conservative view — let's put it that way — the ones with the U.S. flags."

The panel on the Thursday edition of MSNBC’s Hardball had plenty to say about Hillary Clinton’s e-mail scandal in light of the State Department Inspector General (IG) report with Sanders supporter/former Democratic State Senator Nina Turner (Ohio) rebuking Clinton for essentially “jump[ing] off the bridge” with her predecessors into private e-mail even though she shouldn’t have.
