On MSNBC's Hardball Friday, host Chris Matthews revealed he didn't know that there are currently two African-American US Senators serving in Congress.
"We don't have any African Americans in the United States Senate, which I think is a disgrace," he said.
"You know, it's one of the reasons I voted for my friend Michael Steele when he ran because I think we ought to have some. It's absurd in this country. It's absurd."
