Jesus Christ on a Pogo Stick! What the f--k is wrong

with Tweety??? Has he decided to join the Republican Party? Tonight he gave totally unaccustomed free rein to Kellyanne Conway, the motormouth Trump "Campaign Manager", never interrupting her and actually egging her on, suggesting other ways he thought she should attack Hillary. This charming little segment was followed by a Republican strategist with whom Tweety (also) wholeheartedly agreed, followed by Andrea Mitchell who was beaming to be able to announce that the $400 million paid to Iran was - Ooohh - really a hostage ransom deal. And that's only the first half hour. He has become unwatchable.

25. Or his "we're ALL NeoCONS now!"

That was after dubya went prancing around the air craft carrier in a crotch-stuffed flight suit. On "Mission Accomplished" day.

Chris Matthews was a slobbering shame that day.

29. Here is the link to how giddy Matthews was over his President on "Mission Accomplished"

day.

Sickening. It tells you precisely and entirely every bit of what he is ever going to be worth!

I guess the ratings are going down now that people think that Trump is toast

And Tweety is a devoted little follower of whatever those on high say he should think.

I don't think he had a lot of choice though. You know he wants to challenge these Trump surrogates.

Sounds like they are going to script how this election goes..............

9. That was awful

I think maybe some big bosses decided to make this more of a race and let the Trump surrogates have more airtime uninterrupted. He didn't challenge her, just let her rattle on and on, something she is very good at.

I hope they don't think this is good for the ratings, because there are other channels to watch.

Brietbart-type turn Tweety took tonite. The bosses on high have spoken - "Make it a horse race again!" And Tweety smartly salutes and does their bidding. Bastard.

16. Some higher-up on MSNBC tells them to change their tune every so often...

it's really obvious that they want a close race, which would increase their ratings. Tweety seems to have no personal conviction whatsoever.

27. I tweeted him to scold him about it.

Complained about how long the obnoxious Kellyanne was on. I forget exactly what else I said except for expressing thanks for my "mute" switch. I do remember closing with "Hello nausea."

18. Tweety's twerpy tumble.

He uses outmoded cold war definitions of the word socialism.
He's past the retirement age for any normal person's job.
He's on a dying medium.
He is the very definition of yesterday's news.

He seems like he doesn't like to see women in power and he was caught saying some racy things about Melania on a hot mic.

22. Yesterday, he was giving the Trump surrogate ideas on how to attack Hillary.

He does this all the time. He must be auditioning for a job at Fox.

Also, during the segment when they were talking about the Iran money, (money which a court had agreed was owed to Iran), EXACTLY WHEN was the appropriate time to pay the non-ransom-money owed-to-Iran if not after the hostages were released. If Obama had instructed them to deliver the money BEFORE the hostages were released, wouldn't everyone have been saying, "Yep, that looks like ransom money to me?" After all, isn't that the normal way ransom money is handled? Payment first, release second? Instead he ordered it turned over to the Iranians after the hostages had boarded a plane in Geneva. So would they have preferred that those Americans who were being unlawfully detained in Iran, continue to sit there for whatever 'reasonable' amount of time necessary to ensure that enough time had passed so that the Repugs would not be able to claim that there was a corrolation between the Arms Deal and the release of the hostages; or sufficient time between the release of the payment owed the Iranians since the 80's and the release of the detained Americans so that the Repugs could not claim that Obama was paying a ransom for hostage? If so, to hell with them. When it is their behind sitting in an Iranian jail on trumped up charges, I will then give a damn what the Repugs think. Obama knows the money was not ransom money, and the Iranians know that the money was not ransom money. What the Repugs believe is irrelevant.

23. He's utterly unwatchable. The way he interrupts and talks over guests--especially women--is

infuriating. He's got a misogynistic streak a mile wide and comes off as a boorish lout.

33. He kept interrupting two male guests last night.

He was supposedly trying to figure out what makes Bannon tick. When his guests started to offer some background and their opinions, Matthews repeatedly interrupted them with new conjectures of his own.

24. Why do people's emotions go up or down depending upon what TV pundits say?

And why do people watch TV at all?

This is all about ratings and money and "horse race" and ego and dysfunctional TV personalities.

Stop watching the damn crap, and do real research instead. Are people so addicted to TV?

31. Give Joy Reid his time slot- She's kicking ass at 11pm

She needs a bigger audience.
I know this may sound petty, but Chris' voice is at an odd timbre, it irritates me to hear it, like it's on some sort of resonant frequency that negates my shields...

to have her in his time slot. But you know that they're never going to do it = they are obviously determined to make this a 'horse race' again. Ratings, you know.

... a fashion critic!

He's far more concerned with appearance than substance!
