In a short but oh-so-sweet exchange this afternoon on “Hardball,” Chris “Tingles” Matthews got his quivering leg handed to him by none other than Newt Gingrich. After ludicrously claiming that it’s Republicans who obsessively play the race card, Matthews was cruisin’ for a bruisin’. And boy, did he get one.
Conservatives got thrills of their own watching Gingrich take Matthews to the woodshed:
It was great to watch Newt Gingrich tear Chris Matthews a new one.—

Of course, a few people inevitably couldn’t process Matthews’ complete stupefaction:
Ahaha this argument between Newt Gingrich and Chris Matthews is so surreal. I love how much of a disingenuous liar Gingrich is.—

Gingrich can't find way out of box. He's hating his interview & can't twist words enough. Chris Matthews is enjoying it.—

Chris Matthews absolutely filleting Newt Gingrich. This is hilarious—

“Filleting”? Was she watching the same interview we were? Dream on, honey. Matthews got pwned.
And such masterful pwnage is worthy of a masterful hashtag game. Enter #ThingsChrisMatthewsThinksAreRacist:
Himself bcuz he's white, which somehow gives him more credibility to do the same to other whites. WTF?—
