Media Research Center reporter Dan Joseph caught up with Chris Matthews on Tuesday in Las Vegas and asked him about his now infamous leg “thrill.” “How is your leg,” Joseph asked. “Is the thrill still there in the leg? Is the leg ok? Did the thrill go away with surgery or did it go away on its own?”
Matthews, visibly angry at the questions, told Joseph to “go to hell” followed by, “just leave me alone” and “you got a psychological problem.”

Matthews’ originally talked about his leg thrill in February 2008 while describing then candidate Barack Obama: “I felt this thrill going up my leg. I mean, I don’t have that too often.”
And we’ve been mocking him ever since.
