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.

In the overnight hours of Tuesday into Wednesday, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews suggested that there’s a segment of Americans opposed to President Barack Obama who want him permanently wiped from U.S. history books and any list of American Presidents because of his race. Right on the dot at 1:00 a.m. Eastern, Matthews also creepily complimented NBC News correspondent Hallie Jackson for having “definitely calmest voice out there” amidst the violence after a Donald Trump rally in New Mexico.

Outside of a Trump rally Tuesday night in Albuquerque New Mexico, anti-Trump protesters showed up and became violent, throwing rocks, smashing doors, jumping on cop cars and setting Trump flags on fire. For a couple of hours, police tried to control the protesters and find a way to let the hundreds of people who attended the rally, trapped inside, out safely. An NBC reporter was even knocked down off camera as he reported on the scene. Yet his colleagues at sister network MSNBC were less than shocked by the protesters actions, in fact they seemed congratulatory, praising them for their actions and rationalizing their violence.

MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews provided a laundry list of quotable utterances on Tuesday night that began right from the start when he likened the Clintons to “used cars” being “total[ed]” by Donald Trump by bringing up the Clinton’s checkered pasts and later when he compared Trump and Bernie Sanders to politicians in Third World countries.

The Washington Post released late Thursday for Friday’s print edition a surprising poll that 90 percent of Native Americans were not offended by the term “redskins” which dealt the apologist liberal media a massive blow in their quest to force the NFL’s Washington Redskins to change their name. In the days since, the “big three” networks of ABC, CBS, and NBC saw no reason to inform their viewers of this survey that was a blow to their narrative that such terminology is not only offensive but extremely hateful.

Closing out Wednesday’s edition of MSNBC’s Hardball, host Chris Matthews suggested that Hillary Clinton must pass “a test of leadership” to take the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination and become the next U.S. president that has nothing to do with any number of the scandals she’s involved in but simply whether she can corral Bernie Sanders supporters without capitulating to them.

MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews is no stranger to awkward and bizarre outbursts of affection for liberals (plus the occasional fellow cable host) and so Democratic Senator Sherrod Brown (Ohio) could be added to the list as he professed his admiration during Tuesday’s live coverage of the Kentucky and Oregon primaries with a full-blown testimony and even a plea for Brown to sing.

This issue: Journalists laugh about the supposed death of the Republican Party, now that Donald Trump will be the presidential nominee, while the New York Times wishes Jon Stewart were still on TV to bash the GOP during this year's campaign. Plus, the media insist Hillary Clinton is honest, and her scandals are nothing more than “garbage” and “crud,” while Newsweek tweets: “Has there been any President cooler than Obama?”

MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews has offered NewsBusters readers perhaps the largest library of ridiculous statements over the years but his segment topics took a bizarre turn on Wednesday when he devoted an entire block to Hillary Clinton’s interest in releasing documents pertaining to Area 51 and the chances that aliens exist inside the U.S.

MSNBC political analyst and former Democratic Vermont Governor Howard Dean attempted on two occasions during Wednesday’s Hardball to further the extremely flawed and borderline irresponsible claim that Donald Trump’s candidacy is similar to that of 1964 GOP presidential nominee Barry Goldwater.
