‘Hardball’: Pence Speech ‘Barn-Burner,’ ‘Power-Packed’

MSNBC’s Chris Matthews reacted Saturday to Donald Trump vice-presidential selection Gov. Mike Pence’s (R-IN) acceptance speech, calling it a “barn-burner” and “power-packed.”

“It was a barn-burner,” Matthews said. “And it had all the elements of a keynote speech for next week’s convention. Clearly, both these guys were warming up today. I know we’re just supposed to get an announcement of a vice presidential announcement already made, but they used it to get network time, cable time, to basically give us a draft of what we’ll hear next week. I thought the speech by Governor Pence was reminding me of old-time Republican speeches, people like Walter Judd. This is the whole power-packed conservative argument.”
