This one was pretty deplorable. On Sunday’s “The Chris Matthews Show,” the liberal host said something truly disrespectful about a former House Speaker, and a highly-regarded member of the political establishment (video available here courtesy of our friend at Ms Underestimated).
In the predictions segment, the New York Times’ David Brooks said:
Newt Gingrich is going to come in a close second in one of the first three Republican primaries, be on the cover of Time and Newsweek. He will have his moment, and he will be the alternative for whoever the real nominee is.
In response Matthews despicably said: “Let’s hope you’re wrong!”
How disgraceful of you, Chris!
