Chris Matthews: Republicans Should Ask, ‘What Happened To My God Damn Party?’ | Hardball | MSNBC

84 Comments on "Chris Matthews: Republicans Should Ask, ‘What Happened To My God Damn Party?’ | Hardball | MSNBC"

  1. The current incarnation of the Republican party is nothing more than a group of biased jerks. They represent precisely what is wrong in our current political environment.

    • C Cole since when does anyone give a flying crap about someone’s tax returns or filing bankruptcy- all perfectly legal but since it’s Trump the liberal media needs to start their crap, foolishness

    • @Lunatic Fringe Really? You think no one in the democratic party lies or spreads propaganda? There are plenty in both parties! Just look at all the lies and propaganda that Adam Schiff has said over the last 3 year’s! Do some actual research! Both parties are guilty of dividing America!

    • @Bacons Strip I like your Dad. You are a complete moron who can’t figure out your own father. You are a propagandized twit full of political correctness and a bore. You don’t even realize your generation has been “educated” to believe in a lot of leftie guff. Maybe he is trying to get you to wake up to what’s really going on ! Keep watching the lying fake MSM and go on believing you know something. Actually you know nothing ! Here is something for you to take on board. Racism is natural and healthy.

  2. Donald Trump is unpatriotic and plainly un-American. He’s all that is evil and wrong about the human condition. He holds no morals, he’s unethical, and serves only his own egomaniacal interests.

    • @James K. Boyle
      Your so GULLIBLE. Bills in Senate not being passed that would make Americans Medical & Wages better being ignored by Senate, Bub

    • @vince kelly
      🖕 Again with the HILLARY Defense, Nitwit

    • @RockSlide
      Your really misinformed Dude . Typical 🙉🙈🙊
      At the halfway mark of President Donald Trump’s first term, his administration has hired a lobbyist for every 14 political appointments made, welcoming a total of 281 lobbyists on board, a ProPublica and Columbia Journalism Investigations analysis shows.

      With a combination of weakened rules and loose enforcement easing the transition to government and back to K Street, Trump’s swamp is anything but drained. The number of lobbyists who have served in government jobs is four times more than the Obama administration had six years into office. And former lobbyists serving Trump are often involved in regulating the industries they worked for.

      Trump TownTracking White House staffers, Cabinet members and political appointees across the government

      Even government watchdogs who’ve long monitored the revolving door say that its current scale is a major shift from previous administrations. It’s a “staggering figure,” according to Virginia Canter, ethics chief counsel for the D.C.-based legal nonprofit Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington. “It suggests that lobbyists see themselves as more effective in furthering their clients’ special interests from inside the government rather than from outside.”

      We tracked the lobbyists as part of an update to Trump Town, our database of political appointees. We’ve added the names of 639 new staffers with the administration and the financial disclosures of 351 political appointees who have filled different positions over the past year, and we tracked the careers of 338 who departed government during the same period.

      The full extent of the lobbying industry’s influence is hard to measure because federal agencies decline to share details of recusals granted to officials who disclose potential conflicts with their new government roles.

    • For all the Bamboozled 🐑 unable to honor PATRIOTIC AMERICANS who have put America 1st by shedding light on this Criminal Administration…Y’all are NUCKING FUTTS !
      (Goebbels view on Propaganda) We do not want to be a movement of a few straw brains, but rather a movement that can conquer the broad masses. Propaganda should be popular, not intellectually pleasing. It is not the task of propaganda to discover intellectual truths. Those are found in other circumstances, I find them when thinking at my desk, but not in the meeting hall. (TRUMP RALLIES ANYONE )

  3. I love Chris Matthews. He makes me feel less insane in a world with trump and trump loyalists

  4. I’m pretty sure that if anyone said to trump that he had no decency he would take it as a compliment… he’s that out of touch with reality.

    • ​@cdjhyoung You certainly can pack a lot of lies and misunderstandings into a short paragraph. Apparently, you have done precious little study of this prez and his true background. It is your loss and smothered by bias. Try doing some independent background research. Cannot live on headlines alone.

      @Jeffrey Meade So you agree with Jenny D that Trump has no decency, and you’re happy about it. You are a most excellent Trump supporter.

    • Yea, vote this guy in

  5. Americans should ask “what happened to my country?”

    • Lorna SinAmin washington | November 17, 2019 at 3:22 PM | Reply

      @Val Valentine no…No we’re not. We have a lunatic family in our White House. That is destroying this country from the inside out. Hes working for putin. Because it but we are working on voting him out next election. As it is his republicans blues ing across the country to democrats. That is the start of the blue wave that that is coming. 🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊

    • jacq danieles : Sadly, I agree. Trump is just a symptom. It seems that the US has ‘lost its way’.

    • Matthew Huszarik | November 18, 2019 at 3:25 PM | Reply

      I am beginning to think there are a significant percentage of Americans who would do anything for a buck. Sell out the children’s future, sell out their country, even allow people to die on the streets. They see what Trump is and because the economy hasn’t tanked and unemployment has risen they don’t care what Trump does. His economy is stealing from the future not to stem a horrible recession but to give his cronies billions in tax cuts and that he sprinkled a few crumbs to the middle class Trump supporters they are fine anything with it.

      A small group of GOP congressman are responsable of this embarrassments, GOP leader not doing his JOB.
      all have accepted RUSSIAN MONEY.
      T R A I T O R S .
      They don’t feel a thing for the country.
      Not even aware of the damage.

  6. America needs a new President.

  7. The main problem Mr. Matthews is that Trump is not the only Russian asset inside the GOP.

  8. If Trump wins in 2020 it’s the end of America.

    • @tingle blade what values are those? Lying, stealing, cheating, hating, racism, stupidity, pride and prejudice, boorish self praise, jealousy, laziness?????

    • @tingle blade wow, you are blinded by something. That’s for sure!!

    • @tingle blade Christianity is my living hope. I’m sorry but l hate what Trump and his pathetic minions are doing.

    • @All4 Jesus Christianity is the value of the Semitic people, created from Judaism, created by the Egyptian priests, as an information weapon. White Folk should honor their culture, their Gods ( while respecting other people, I’m not white supremasist ). We need to revive the culture and knowledge of our ancestors – it is the only way of survival, the planet is dying, people are helpless before the power of the oligarchy. Only the ancestors had the knowledge of how to organize society to live in harmony with nature and develop in all aspects.

  9. Roger Stone has been found guilty on all counts. What a beautiful day. Hahahahahahahah!!

  10. Isn’t it interesting that the number of Trump supporters, real or phony, drops off significantly on threads that deal with actual facts negative to Trump?

      OH WAIT ….

      @Robert stop lieing,

      Since Trump admin took office, job creation, wage growth, gdp, BETTER TARIFF AGREEMENTS, legal immigration, undeployment and economy and wall street that is far superior.

      Been amazing. Omama said it would never happen and it has happen!

      Simply facts.

    Maria Yovanovich is a hero and a true American patriot. Can’t say the same for the corrupt and compromised cowards in the WH and Senate.

    • @vince kelly
      Trump is the SWAMP THING, Ya Nitwit

    • @Sean Steele Trump afraid of her ? Are you stupid or what ? She is nothing !

    • @Peter Quibell Keep watching the Fake Media. it ,matches your IQ !

    • TRUMP 2020 a true American patriot, as historians will write it, and fools like patrick kennedy will be remembered as MORONS, like the hitler youth brain dead losers.

    • @Jos Fielden Thank you for the compliment, they have high IQ’s and are decent people. Not like the Orange stain who created a fake charity to scam people. I pity you if you still think TrumpScum is fit to be president. Sadly there is not one redeeming feature in the toddler. I hope your 5 year old does not going calling everyone stupid names.

  12. I’m glad they didn’t take Twitter away from toddler in chief. It‘ll accelerate his downfall. Bring it, Trumpy.

    • No, it won’t. A solid 40% of the voting public either love Trump’s insults and ugliness, or flat out don’t care. I take no pleasure in saying this.

    • daveapplemotors | November 15, 2019 at 8:52 PM | Reply

      @Pink Crayon No. Of the 76% who registered to vote only 61.8% of those voted. 49% of those favored tRump. If you do the math the result is 22% of our eligible voters got him elected. (Plus some foreign help.) That 22% is shrinking. Today’s crime probably shook a few tRump voters loose.

    • @daveapplemotors I sincerely hope you are correct that even a few Trumpers are starting to see the wreck that is this president. Thanks, too, for breaking down the numbers. It gives me hope. I live in the reddest state in the country and I must say, it is pretty lonely here.


  14. What the President has done and continues to do to this fine Ambassador is beyond contempt. The Republicans have no answer.

    • Every Democratic run city is overwhelmed with homelessness and they want to take care of immigrants?

    • Paddy S Newsflash , the wealthy are not going to pay our bills and the poor are not going to pay $20 for a hamburger, Democrats are pulling another fast one . Liberal media has divided this country, not Trump

    • @Wes Bernard with all due respect I think that you are influenced too much of the Fox propaganda. Granted there is high employment but many people work in low paid jobs, while Trump gave the top 5% of America’s wealthiest billions of dollars in tax breaks.

    • Paddy S who cares what Trump makes, he makes that under any President and ALL news is Propaganda , I watch all them . Liberal media will say that about fox and back n forth they go but your socialist government MSNBC is the worst- google Harvest university study on most accurate news – they go after Malania’s shoes and her son , I’m sure you’re a good person but don’t be afraid to expand you news info wider

    • @Paddy S trump didn’t get impeached what on earth are you talking about ?

  15. Witness Intimidation Lock the c rook he is an embarrassment to America and the founding fathers and the constitution!!!!!!!!

  16. I don’t recognise the Republican party anymore. Anyone with any decency has turned their back.

    • Looks all the same to me..racist hateful treasonous etc

    • So you didn’t ask to see the link of the video ? , just blew your cover dude , typical denial , go troll somewhere kids will hear your crap  and leave it to us men to post real posts !!!

    • @einstein abwao You are fool with blinders on. Trump won 2,626 counties and 30 states to Hilary’s 487 and 20. It will be better for Trump in 2020.

      The rally’s are huge and there is a message there. Don’t look at the polls. You did that in 2016 and we seen who cried on t.v. But, clowns never learn. You will be in tears again.

      Trump 2020. The truth is being revealed.

  17. The president of the United States would fail a grade school grammar test. The USA is going down down down. Sad 😢

    • Kenzo Jr. ….but on the playground, he would be one of the nasty bullies

    • @Ephraim Ankiabom* Is Trump’s boss, Putin going to help him again this election too?

    • @Ephraim Ankiabom* Trump is a one term president and it is one term too much! Trump didn’t continue to maintain the stable country and government that he had inherited. Your racist toddler is about to be evicted from the White House that the “Trump Family Crime Syndicate” has infested. He is too stupid to be anybody’s president!

    • @James Lade * What you’re saying in a politically correct way, is that Trump talks down to all of his idiots. Perhaps Obama’s pattern of speech might annoy you however, I never heard s complaint except for you and that’s 3 years late. Anyway he was highly successful… nationally and internationally!

    • Rude Dude I don’t know maybe you read my messages incorrectly. I admire Obama and think he was one of the best presidents. Twump is the worst

    The GOP are corrupt, treasonous, and serve Russia. The GOP should be disbanded.

    I like presidents who don’t have secret meetings with Russians then destroyed the evidence and then claimed the meeting was about Russian adoptions LOL

  20. we have to stop electing personalities, Matthews is spot on here

      @Felony Strutter yep . JFK before he was shot . Supported the idea of medicare 4 all. If JFK was still alive. He would be endorsing Bernie Sanders. here is the video of JFK talking about medicare 4 all.,

    • Especially White Supremacist personalities.

    • Angelo Kournianos | November 18, 2019 at 12:56 PM | Reply

      LIke Obama? Yes.

    • Except that Matthews fawned over Barack Obama, a lawmaker known for voting ‘present’ often instead of making a decision, David. It’s arguable that without any accomplishments in Congress, Chris Matthews’ support and fawning was due to either Obama’s personality or his “making history” based solely on the color of his skin.

    • @Big Huge Obama passed historic healthcare legislation that gave life saving Healthcare to at least 32 million people that didn’t have it before. Get out of here with your BS. GOP Congress blocked everything Obama was trying to do because most of them are racist to the bone. There is your real truth.
