MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews, who is a Catholic, clearly does not have any understanding of or respect for evangelical Christians. He recently proved this in a stunningly nasty set of comments he made.
Matthews made an appearance on fellow left-wing MSNBC show Morning Joe, and participated in a discussion about the fact that Republican President Donald Trump declared that the United States has now officially recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
There are arguments to be made against acknowledging Jerusalem’s obvious role as the most important city in Israel, but Matthews bizarrely decided to blame evangelical Christians and Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore in particular for the decision.
Claimed Chris on Morning Joe about Trump’s decision, “And a couple more points about this. Don’t think this isn’t related to Alabama next week. It is related. It is the Christian evangelicals down there with their crazy ideas about Israel, which is, I don’t know, mythical.”
He then smeared evangelical Christians as being dumb and clueless, stating, “They don’t understand the situation over there and how tricky it is ethnically, how tricky it is tribally. They don’t care because it’s a religious belief. Trump’s playing to that this week. You watch him.” Do you think liberal Chris Matthews is a bigot?
