Matthews: ‘Aren’t You Afraid’ of Clinton ‘Nuzzling Up To a War With Assad’?

During MSNBC’s coverage of Wednesday’s presidential debate, anchor Chris Matthews asked, “Aren’t you afraid, Chris, aren’t you afraid, Joy, that Hillary’s just nuzzling up to a war with Assad’s regime, that she’s going to go to war with Assad?” Before adding, “I am so afraid—.”

Matthews said, “Hillary’s just doing the usual, oh we’re going to have no-fly zones. You can’t have a no-fly zone unless you — you have to knock out the AAA fire on the ground. You can’t put airplanes in the air. They’re not going to get shot down.”

He added, “Where are these airplanes going to be based? What are they going to do?” And “How about the anti-aircraft fire? How about rocket fire? SAM missiles? We’ve got planes flying around over there. We don’t know who’s shooting at us. Who are we shooting at?”

Fellow anchor Chris Hayes said that he was “worried” about what Clinton’s Russia rhetoric would mean after the election, a point Matthews agreed with. Hayes added that no one wants to “head down the road towards another Cold War, or, God forbid, a war with a nuclear power.”

Matthews then asked about the possibility of a regional struggle, before asking, “Aren’t you afraid, Chris, aren’t you afraid, Joy, that Hillary’s just nuzzling up to a war with Assad’s regime, that she’s going to go to war with Assad?” After fellow anchor Joy Reid mentioned Clinton’s “hawkishness on the Middle East,” Matthews said, “I am so afraid—.”
