Chris Matthews unhinged again: Sen. Ted Cruz ‘fits in the tradition’ of Nazi sympathizer Father Coughlin

Chris Matthews never hits rock bottom, because he never stops digging. Tingles must be searching for MSNBC’s ratings:

The number of negative reactions on Twitter to Matthews’ latest bout with insanity eclipsed the number of MSNBC viewers at any given time:

If Matthews is already playing the Father Coughlin card only halfway through 2013, who will he be comparing Cruz to by, say, 2016? Place your bets.

  • BoscoBolt

    Ted CRUZ 2016! Run – Ted – Run!

    • Jeremy

      Hell Yes!!!

      • RogueRose

        They smear who they fear.

  • Catchance

    He needs to change his show’s name from “Hardball” to “Screwball”. That man is just plain nuts.

    • Jeremy
    • trixiewoobeans

      If anyaryan fits the tradition of a Nazi sympathizer, it’s Herr Matthews!

    • Robert Patrick Moscato

      How about re-naming Mr(??) Matthews show to “NoBalls??

    • IronButterfly

      Does the top of his check read NBC News or Organizing for America????

  • Marvin Nelson

    Evidently, Matthews knows as much about history as he does about politics and reporting. He needs to up his meds, ’cause he is a real nut job.

  • KateNE

    The level of BS this guy gets away with is disturbing & certifiably insane.

    • ObamaFail

      I love his BS. That kind of BS is what is killing MSNBC. Hopefully all of the socialist idiots keep up what they are doing, because with luck, they’ll kill their network entirely.

      • rinodino

        What’s so funny is the fringe seem to be the only ones talking about msnbc EVER….. I wouldn’t doubt it if its you morons that are keeping these shows a float

        • Noah

          go fuck yourself!

          • rinodino

            Lmao and that’s when you know you’ve lost the argument

          • Noah

            you lost already. go fornicate yourself.

          • RedSoloCup

            You must be speaking of experience

        • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

          Thanx Rino, but I Watch REAL NEWS on Fox News Channel! #RightWard Jawamax 8<{D}

          • R T Sinclair

            Fox News is NOT always real news anymore. Be careful what you hear and believe on Fox.

        • Andy from Beaverton

          The ‘fringe’ seems to be the only ones watching PMSNBC, since it has the lowest ratings of all the news channels.

        • R T Sinclair

          WHAT SHOW?

        • RedSoloCup

          We know you and the other 6 viewers are keeping the shows on MSDNC a float.

  • Jeremy
    • Clayton Grant

      Look! It’s Christophe Testiculo, the MSNCB mascot!

    • Clayton Grant

      Danged picture didn’t attach.

      • CatHerder


      • Jeremy

        ha ha great job.

      • Catchance


        That makes perfects sense. He’s often been called a d***head, and he’s certainly nuts!

      • Shane Falco

        K! He’s a Ballchinian!

  • Ramone Love

    What do you mean, unhinged ‘again’? When was he not?

  • annoyinglittletwerp

    Chris has been mixing his meds with his hooch again. I’m Jewish and I voted for Cruz THREE times:In the primary, in the run-off, and in the general. I think that my fellow Gen X’er has been an AWESOME senator so far. ‘Father Coughlin’, my azz.

    • BAW

      I always like to say I proudly voted for Cruz 3 times (same as you) hoping some lefty will accuse me of illegal voting (since it’s what they actually do).

  • LinTaylor

    I think someone needs to start slipping tranquilizers into Matthews’ coffee, maybe then he’d mellow out.

    Of course, if the past is any indicator, they’d have to be horse tranquilizers…

    • Adela Wagner

      Make that “Horses Ass” tranquilizers.

    • Steve_J

      Just before going on air I think they put the same thing in Matthews coffee that Paulie put in the cops drink in the Pope of Greenwich Village.

  • Steve_J

    Would that be the same Father Coughlin who was an early supportter of FDR?

    • Clayton Grant

      To paraphrase Carney, FDR was a long time ago. They only bring up the past when they can point to a Republican failure.

      • Steve_J

        Being MSNBC they should mention that Coughlin was a Repbulican. Although that would put them in another Chris Hayes situation.

  • Clayton Grant

    Shock commentary at its very worst. The true shame is that NBC news was a respected name at one point in its history. When the incestuous marriage with Microsoft was consumated, they started driving themselves to the bottom faster than a pimply faced lead footed teenager out on his own for the very first time in daddy’s convertible.

  • Chevypowered

    Gee the Nazi card. Wait let me check to make sure water is still wet. Yep. Still is.

  • kenai

    Sure, and Chrissy Tingles fits in the tradition of Walter Duranty, the NYT reporter that covered up Stalin’s genocide of the Ukrainian Kulaks.

  • TocksNedlog

    The politics of demonization. Cruz isn’t just ‘wrong’, he’s

  • operanerd1986

    Oh, wow, a hackneyed Father Coughlin comparison. I remember a few years back, left-wing talking heads were saying that Glenn Beck was the new Father Coughlin.

    In any case, we know Ted Cruz must be good, or Chris Matthews wouldn’t be smearing him.

  • Greg Greenlee

    Chris Matthews has sunk to the gutter level of M Moore,Bill Maher, Wanda Sykes and Alec Baldwin. He and M Bashir are insane!

  • Avey Owyns

    Chris first had to make the assumption that MSNBC viewers even knew who Father Coughlin is… LOL

  • CobraJet428

    Matthews: In the tradition of Stalin’s Useful Idiots. Hey Chris, how’s that lilly-white gated community you live in? #Refuge

  • KansasGirl

    Chrissy, where does Joe Kennedy fit into your history?

  • Dane Gunderson

    Ted Cruz ‘fits in the tradition’ of Nazi sympathizer Father Coughlin but not Nazi admirer DEMOCRAT John F. Kennedy?

  • PeterP

    Chris Matthews is more Aryan-looking than Reinhard Heydrich.

    • SJ’s Dad

      The Dennis Miller is strong in this one!

  • SJ’s Dad

    Is he dating Amanda Bynes?

  • Sua Sponte

    With such witty and insightful commentary and journalism coming out of MSNBC, I just can’t put my finger on why they aren’t leading in the ratings…Total mystery…

  • mickeyco

    Gee, I bet Ted is all upset about this.

  • Red Fred

    Chris Matthews (white guy) slanders Ted Cruz. RACIIIIIIIIISSSSSTTT!!!!

  • Rich

    You know things are not going well for them when they start the name calling.

  • LandoftheSlave

    this guy is insane, he said a couple days ago that he voted for Michael Steele because he is black, and “we need some blacks in the Senate, of course he also mentioned that we have no blacks in senate when in reality we have 2. He said “we need”, so apparently the color of your skin does matter? Here I thought you were suppose to judge someone’s based on their character and not the color of their skin? Forgot who said it, but I bet they were real smart.

    • rickg62

      Someone named Martin Luther King Jr. maybe.

  • RedSoloCup

    Tingles is living proof why you don’t get drunk before going on TV.
