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.

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.

New York Times Writer Blames Evangelical Christians for Chinese Coronavirus
Not China’s Communist Party.
A New York Times writer published a column largely assigning blame for America’s Chinese coronavirus epidemic on Evangelical Christians.
In Stewart’s column, titled ‘The Religious Right’s Hostility to Science is Crippling Our Coronavirus Response,’ she frames conservative Christians for a supposed lacking national effort to contain the disease. Stewart alleges that Christians within the administration are preventing the federal government from recognizing ‘science,’ repeating a trope long alleged by liberals that their political opponents are supposedly ignorant of the discipline.
In the article, Stewart claims that “Donald Trump rose to power with the determined assistance of a movement that denies science, bashes government and prioritized loyalty over professional expertise. In the current crisis, we are all reaping what that movement has sown.”
She fails that recognize that scientific experts on viral outbreaks such as Dr. Anthony Fauci have informed the federal government’s response since the beginning of the crisis.
Stewart fails to mention that it was progressive liberals across the world who largely opposed international travel bans, a scientifically verifiable means of virus transmission and spread. The European Union lagged well behind the United States and Canada in placing curbs on travel across borders.
Perhaps most egregiously, she fails to even so much as assign any culpability for America’s coronavirus epidemic on the Chinese Communist Party, which failed to so much as even admit the scale of the problem as the disease first took the form of a true public health pandemic in China. The CCP’s negligent cover-up of the coronavirus epidemic in undoubtedly the most ‘unscientific’ governmental approach to the virus, with grave consequences. And China’s authoritarian leaders are by no means conservative Christians.
Stewart’s reaching move to blame Evangelicals for the coronavirus outbreak in America is merely a reactionary take from a cultural liberal seeking to impute political commentary in the midst of a pandemic.
