Thursday on MSNBC’s “Hardball,” host Chris Matthews was in a surly mood, opening his interview with Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) by saying, “I’m running out of hope.”
Matthews interrupted Warren’s stump speech about Republicans destroying the middle class with trickle-down Reaganomics with his own spiel on crumbling infrastructure and underwater cities. Matthews ended by forcefully asking the senator, “I don’t hear you getting it done. The Democrats control the U.S. Senate. Democrats control the White House. When are you going to do what you said you would like to do?”
Warren interrupted Matthews by demanding he “stop this.” Then the senator ordered Matthews to “think about it,” as she reminded him their real adversaries are Republicans who “say exactly the same thing. They say there is not enough money” whenever Democrats push spending for “education,” “bridges and power grids,” or “research.”
