MSNBC’s Chris Matthews Obliterates Paranoid Trump, Calls Him A “Weirdo In The Basement”

MSNBC’s Chris Matthews pulled no punches on Thursday, slamming Donald Trump for his repeated lies and offering harsh words for those who bend over backward to defend the president when he does or says something flatly untrue.

Matthews said, “The man in the White House is demonstrably capable of making up claims that have no reality.”


Matthews said:

Tomorrow’s Friday. If the president were to rise at dawn and say, “It’s Saturday,” what would be the meaning of that statement? Would his people – those who back him no matter what – check their calendars and convince themselves the calendar they’ve been using is wrong and the leader they adore is right? … This whole thing about President Obama wiretapping Trump is nothing but trumped up nonsense …  The man in the White House is demonstrably capable of making up claims that have no reality. He’s no better than the weirdo in the basement who calls in the fire alarm just to hear the sirens go past.

The MSNBC host isn’t right about everything, but on this, he is spot on. Not only is Trump’s latest claim about President Obama ludicrous, but it’s just the latest in his long history of perpetuating complete falsehoods. Worse is that those who work for him in the White House and the Americans who support him will defend him at all costs.

Trump’s claims about Barack Obama are no different than him waking up tomorrow and claiming it’s not Friday, but instead it’s whatever day he chooses it to be.

Up is down, left is right, Fox News is fair and balanced. To the new administration, reality is no longer a concrete, indisputable thing – it’s whatever Trump says it is. There’s nothing more dangerous than that.

This is the President of the United States. He’s no longer some attention-craving, womanizing game show host. There are consequences to his pathological lying. When he uncorks a flood of nonsense on Twitter, the world is watching – and, lately, shaking their heads in disbelief.

It’s time for people – especially Republicans – to stand up to his shameless lying.
