MSNBC host Chris Matthews, who was a pioneer in the field of cable news field by hosting “Hardball” for decades, has resigned from his post after a string of recent controversies.
“I’m retiring,” Matthews said. “This is the last ‘Hardball’ on MSNBC.”

He made the announcement on Monday’s episode of “Hardball,” and left his show immediately after his resignation. He was reportedly planning to retire at the end of the election cycle, but that was moved up considerably due to the fallout from the recent controversies.
“The younger generations out there are ready to take the reins,” he said.
Matthews initially came under fire after he compared the rise of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) in the Democrat presidential race to the rise of Nazi Germany.
“The general calls up Churchill and says, ‘It’s over,’” Mr. Matthews said during a broadcast of his show, as he tried to describe Democrats’ surprise at Sanders’ unexpected surge. “Churchill says: ‘How can it be? You got the greatest army in Europe. How can it be over?’ He said, ‘It’s over.’”
From there, the controversy only worsened for the embattled journalist, after he mistakenly said that Jaime Harrison, a Democrat running for the U.S. Senate in South Carolina, was Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC). He told this to Harrison while he was appearing on his show.
“Jaime, I see you standing next to the guy you’re going to beat right there, maybe, maybe, Lindsey Graham,” Matthews said.
“That’s Tim Scott,” Harrison said.
“Jaime?” Matthews said.
“Tim Scott,” another guest said.
“Who’s that?” a confused Matthews said.
“That’s Tim Scott,” another guest said causing Harrison to laugh.
“I’m sorry?” an increasingly confused Matthews said.
“Oh, the other Senator, Tim Scott. What am I saying?” a now lucid Matthews said.
“Big mistake. Mistaken identity, sir. I’m sorry,” he continued.
After they smelled blood in the water, that’s when Matthews was hit with the inevitable #MeToo accusations by embittered female reporters.
Journalist Laura Bassett claimed that “has a pattern of making comments about women’s appearances in demeaning ways” because he asked “Why haven’t I fallen in love with you yet?” to a female guest. He admitted fault while groveling on his final show.
“For making such comments in the past, I’m sorry,” Matthews said during tonight’s broadcast.
Leftists are currently pissing on Matthews’ grave in social media posts.
Cannot overstate how much better off we are without Chris Matthews — a relic of amoral, politics-as-sports journalism who cared more about access to party elites than to advocating for the public he was supposed to serve.

Chris Matthews recently compared Bernie Sanders winning primaries to Nazis invading France. Bernie’s father’s side all died in the Holocaust.
Today Chris Matthews was fired by msnbc. Excuse me, he ‘retired.’
You truly love to see it.

Thank you Bernie, for finally causing Chris Matthews to show his ass for real and now we shall be free of him! You're already making America better. #BernieSanders

I would tell Chris Matthews that I hope the door doesn’t hit him on his way out but I really hope it does and I’m not a liar.

ET TU, TUCKER? Carlson Suggests Sidney Powell Has No Evidence of Vote Steal Coup on ‘Fox News’
Has he been compromised?
After the inspiring press conference by attorneys Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell on Thursday about the Trump campaign’s steadfast dedication toward fighting voter fraud, supporters of President Trump expected Fox News host Tucker Carlson to support these efforts to save America.
Unfortunately, that is not what happened, as Carlson went off on Powell, making statements on his primetime program implying that she has no evidence for her claims.
“For more than a week, Powell has been all over conservative media with the following story: This election was stolen by a collection of international leftists who manipulated vote tabulating software in order to flip millions of votes from Donald Trump to Joe Biden,” Carlson said.
“The other day on television, Powell said of Trump, that when the fraud is finally uncovered, ‘I think we’ll find that he had at least 80 million votes.’ In other words, rigged software stole about seven million votes in this election,” he added.
At this point, Carlson’s commentary went off the rails, and he appeared to be carrying water for the color revolution coup that has culminated with the vote steal of the century.
“We invited Sidney Powell on the show. We would have given her the whole hour. We would have given her the entire week actually and listened the whole time at wrapped attention…But she never sent us any evidence despite a lot of requests,” Carlson said.
“When we checked with others around the Trump campaign, people in positions of authority, they told us Powell has never given them any evidence either,” he added.
Because Powell does not want to jeopardize any court case which the fate of the entire nation rests upon by blabbing to the media or any bureaucrats, Carlson is attacking her credibility.
“She never demonstrated that a single actual vote was moved illegitimately by software from one candidate to another…We’re telling you this because it’s true,” he said.

Big League Politics has reported on the left-ward shift of Fox News in recent months, which Carlson has up to this point pushed back against:
After Fox News host Neil Cavuto cut off White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany during an election-related press conference on Monday, ratings giant Tucker Carlson lambasted Cavuto and the network on his titular primetime program.
“In a democracy, you cannot ignore honest questions from citizens. You’re not allowed. You can’t dismiss them out of hand as crazy and immoral for asking. You can’t just cut away from coverage you don’t like. You can’t simply tell people to accept an outcome because force doesn’t work in a democracy. That’s dictatorship,” Carlson said.
“In a free society, you have to convince the public of your legitimacy. You have to win them over with reason. Democracy is always a voluntary arrangement. Telling voters to shut up is never enough,” he concluded…
He is responding to the shameful editorial decision by Cavuto and Fox News earlier in the day to censor McEnany in order to keep up the ruse that Joe Biden is the president-elect…
It is being speculated that Carlson may not be long for Fox News. However, he is a ratings giant who brings in the bacon to a network that is quickly growing reviled to its own core base.
Hopefully this is not a sign that Carlson has folded to the globalist establishment.
