Host of MSNBC’s show Hardball, Christ Matthews, went on an irate banter last night along with the Mother Jones super liberal David Corn.
The topic? Susan Rice.
The bombshell story of Rice ordering surveillance and an unmasking of the Trump team has been barely reported by MSNBC.
For them to even acknowledge it’s an issue is a big deal, but they couldn’t help but place their spin on it.
Matthews read a tweet from former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee tweet about Rice soon wearing an orange jumpsuit, and they were off to the races.
“I mean, Huckabee has no shame. These guys are trooping along, like camp followers of Trump,” Matthews said. “Notice it’s always a female? Just a thought.”
Then, the host defended Rice. “Susan Rice’s job is to watch national security. As she told Andrea [Mitchell] today, our colleague, she made it very clear what she was doing was when she saw an American name show up in a surveillance of a foreign perhaps agent, she wanted to know who that was. What’s wrong with that?”
Then David Corn chimed in…
“At the end of the day, we need some element of decency. When Rand Paul gets out there and says she’s abused this right, there is not an iota of evidence that she’s abused anything. Calling her Typhoid Mary? She — all we know now is that she did her job. Did she do something wrong? There is no information indicating that. So they are making her, you know, basically they’re defaming her without any reason to do so because she’s a woman. Maybe because she’s a black woman.”
The whole thing is completely absurd and a typical liberal move.
Matthews and Corn have no defense for her actions, so they immediately start the name calling.
It’s funny… in a maddening sort of way.
