Matthews Apologizes for `Enemy Camp’ Remark
Chris “thrill up my leg” Matthews lost all credibility a long time ago. He is one of the worst personalities on TV. An emotional wreck who can’t help blurting out his biased opinions like a child trying to get the attention of the grownups.
His latest blunder came last week when President Obama was at West Point to address the nation on the war in Afghanistan.
The pundit had made the remark Tuesday during on-air analysis of Obama’s speech, noting that he saw skepticism and little enthusiasm in the faces of cadets and officers.
“I didn’t see a lot of warmth in the crowd out there,” he said. “He went to maybe the enemy camp … to make his case.”
Matthews said on his show Wednesday that he had gotten “some very tough calls” from former cadets and parents of cadets, who told him the audience of military officers and officers-in-training are trained not to show the kind of emotion that he thought was lacking.
It’s not the first time the motor-mouthed “Hardball” host has seen his mouth get him into trouble.
He apologized in January 2008 following remarks that angered then-presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Matthews had said that the only reason Clinton was a senator and candidate for president “is that her husband messed around.”
