Matthews: Clintons Looked Down on Middle Class Voters, Alienated Them By ‘Basking In Celebrity’

On Thursday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Hardball,” host Chris Matthews stated that he thought the Clintons looked down on middle class voters and because of the Clintons “basking in celebrity for 20-30 years,” those voters didn’t feel like they were part of the Democratic Party.

Matthews asked, “Did they disdain the sort of middle class Catholic voter, for example, that turned off Hillary. Did they look down on them? I think they did.”

He added, “I get the feeling that a lot of it’s cultural, not just economic. … [Y]ou see the Clintons, and they’re basking in celebrity for 20-30 years, basking in Hollywood friendships…and they get the sense, that’s a nice party. I’d like to be invited to it, but I never will.”
