Chris Matthews: So glad fatal Sandy hit, helped Obama; Backpedals and fails


Taking the prize for the most despicable alleged person on MSNBC (and that is a tough competition)? Chris Matthews. That’s right, he hailed Hurricane Sandy … because it helped Obama. Lives Shmives! What really matters is Obama and his re-election.

More from the Daily Caller:

“I’m so glad we had that storm last week. ‘Cause I think the storm was one of those things. No. Politically, I should say. Not in terms of hurting people. The storm brought in possibilities for good politics.”

Even Scary Larry is shaking his head. You’re not supposed to say it, Chris.

It would be unbelievable, except we all already know that Chris Matthews is a soulless ghoul.

@alexpappasdc I think it’s hysterical you are surpised to hear Chris Matthews not care about people at all.

— Linda Champney (@lindawmn) November 7, 2012

Twitter users are rightly disgusted and outraged by his despicable remarks.

Just be glad you’re on the side that doesn’t say things like ‘Im so glad we has that storm last week’ like Chris Matthews.

To Chris Matthews and his fellow travelers, the end justifies the means. Even if the means is lost lives.

Fire Chris Matthews!MSNBC’s Matthews: ‘I’m So Glad We Had That Storm Last Week…ow.ly/2t4YiL

The repugnant Matthews then tried to backpedal on Twitter this morning.

Obviously I wasn’t talking about the horror of the storm. I grew up on the Jersey shore.

— Chris Matthews (@hardball_chris) November 7, 2012

Twitter users aren’t buying it. Obviously? Obviously you are a cretin, sir.

@hardball_chris We know exactly what you were talking about.

— Jim Treacher (@jtLOL) November 7, 2012

@hardball_chris Your a sick man Guessyou didn’t lose your home, a family member, pet or livelihood. Lives are devastated from “that storm”

— Joy (@JoyDeMello) November 7, 2012

@hardball_chris Your a complete idiot for saying “I’m so happy that storm happened last week”. You should be fired. #dumbass

— Joy (@JoyDeMello) November 7, 2012

@hardball_chris u said what u said…you’re an ass and represent your side so well!

— Jeffrey Miller (@MillerJeffreyL) November 7, 2012

And more pitiful “clarification.”

To clarify – I was thrilled at the cooperation between the President and state officials that made the country proud. Great bipartisanship.

— Chris Matthews (@hardball_chris) November 7, 2012

Baloney. And everyone knows it.

@hardball_chris Bipartisan??how does that fit in your politics chris..you are the most divisive person on TV,you know it and still lie to us

— david miller (@dogg4ui812) November 7, 2012

@hardball_chris Dont clarify. You were wrong. Just apologize. And move on to making more dumb remarks. That is how you make your $$ SpartaNJ

— Brad Wicker (@WickerBee) November 7, 2012

@hardball_chris clarify whatever you want…A lot of respect for you but to use the storm as propaganda, you deserve a fist pal…

— Bob Moseman (@bmose30) November 7, 2012

@hardball_chris what you said disgusted me. At least apologies instead of making it seem like you meant something else. #Donate

— MaNNy (@dopeLike) November 7, 2012

@hardball_chris Nice try u lying weasel

— gregg balbera (@gbalbo) November 7, 2012

#FireChrisMatthews is starting up.

“Im so glad we had that storm” was maybe the worst thing ever uttered by that vile hateful pig- & thats saying something. #firechrismatthews

— Barney Franken (@BarneyFranken) November 7, 2012

Chris Matthews does not deserve his position as a tv pundit. Its disgraceful that he puts elections over people’s lives. #firechrismatthews

— Barney Franken (@BarneyFranken) November 7, 2012

What an awful, ignorant thing to say @7boomeresiason#firechrismatthews let’s get it trending

— Jeff Parton (@japarton10) November 7, 2012

Indeed. We’d tell Matthews to seek help, but obviously it’s too late.

Matthews tweeted this the day before election day.

Tomorrow, vote your soul.

— Chris Matthews (@hardball_chris) November 6, 2012

Ironic. Because, clearly, he doesn’t have one.


Matthews continued his backpedaling with an apology on “Hardball” Wednesday night. He followed it up with a segment that had guest Bill Maher likening Romney and his supporters to Nazis.
