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.

SHAMEFUL: Fox News Censors Newt Gingrich for Correctly Stating George Soros’ Role in Fomenting BLM Terror
Et tu, Fox News?
A Fox News panel lost their minds earlier today when former House Speaker Newt Gingrich mentioned George Soros’ role in supporting Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA terror displays.
Gingrich told Fox News host Harris Faulkner that it is district attorneys funded by George Soros who are responsible for the violence because they routinely allow violent rioters to be back on the streets. This is when the situation became extremely awkward and tense.
“I’m not sure we need to bring George Soros into this,” left-wing panelist Marie Harf interjected.
“He paid for it,” Gingrich responded.
“George Soros doesn’t need to be part of this conversation,” Harf commented.
“Okay,” Gingrich said confusedly. “So it’s verboten.”
“Alright, we’re good,” Faulkner said to cut Gingrich off. The clip ended with a bizarre period of silence before Faulkner tersely changed the subject.

While it may be expected that a liberal commentator might not want to discuss Soros, the fact that Faulkner – a supposedly non-biased straight news anchor – would carry water for the progressive oligarch is highly disconcerting.
Of course, Gingrich brought up a great point about Soros bankrolling far-left DAs who protect rioting terrorists at war with the Bill of Rights and Constitution.
Big League Politics reported on how a Soros front ponied up a large donation to St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner after she vowed to prosecute the McCloskey family for standing up for their rights against a left-wing mob coming to their doorstep:
A front funded by far-left billionaire George Soros has issued a $78,000 donation to the re-election campaign of St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner, who is currently investigating the McCloskey family for defending their property against a marauding mob outside of their home.
The Missouri Justice & Public Safety PAC made the donation. This is a Washington, D.C.-based entity that also papered over Gardner’s campaign in 2016. They have apparently re-branded from “Safety and Justice PAC” to “Missouri Justice & Public Safety PAC” in order to dupe voters that they are a state-wide organization. Soros’ minions admit the oligarch’s collaboration with the fronts.
“Yes, it’s no secret we contribute to Safety and Justice PACs,” Soros spokesman Michael Vachon, said to Just the News. “We are for criminal justice reform.”
Gardner is railroading the McCloskeys after they were forced to confront left-wing terrorists who had barged through a gate and were threatening their home. The McCloskeys have had their home raided, their firearms confiscated, and their lawyer expects Gardner to officially file charges against them in the days to come.
“I believe the charges are imminent based upon Gardner’s past administrative actions and I believe any charges filed are wholeheartedly unwarranted,” said St. Louis attorney Joel Schwartz, who is serving as legal counsel for the McCloskeys.
Mary Pat Carl, a lawyer who quit her job as a homicide prosecutor after Gardner won election, is attempting to unseat Gardner. She claims that nearly 40 percent of prosecutors have resigned under Gardner’s stewardship, showing how disastrous her tenure has been for the rule of law and public safety.
President Donald Trump has more frequently accused Fox News of being a tool for the globalists in recent months.
.@FoxNews just doesn’t get what’s happening! They are being fed Democrat talking points, and they play them without hesitation or research. They forgot that Fake News @CNN & MSDNC wouldn’t let @FoxNews participate, even a little bit, in the poor ratings Democrat Debates…..

….fraud @donnabrazile (and others who are even worse). Chris Wallace is nastier to Republicans than even Deface the Nation or Sleepy Eyes. The people who are watching @FoxNews, in record numbers (thank you President Trump), are angry. They want an alternative now. So do I!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 26, 2020
Based on their covering for Soros’ role in supporting ANTIFA/BLM terrorists, Trump seems to be correct in his assessment. Fox News has been subverted by globalists, and alternative “America First” cable outlets such as OAN and Newsmax need to be supported by Trump supporters.
