Chris Matthews confused GOP Sen. Tim Scott, who was at President Trump’s rally in SC sitting next to Sen. Lindsey Graham with Dem Jaime Harrison, who is running against Graham in November. Even worse for Matthews? Harrison was his guest at the time he made the error.

Keep in mind, this week alone Matthews was also criticized for his interview with Elizabeth Warren:
Last night, @HardballChris GRILLED Elizabeth Warren for bringing up Bloomberg’s “Kill it” comment to a pregnant employee. She was under fire, not Bloomberg.
Matthews settled a similar lawsuit in 2017. Lack of women in media leadership REALLY MATTERS. https://t.co/oVm0oBja14

That interview prompted journo Laura Bassett to finally name Matthews as the guy who was allegedly “gross and inappropriate” with her in the past:
In 2017, I wrote about a cable news host being gross and inappropriate with me. I was afraid to name him at the time. I'm not anymore; it was Chris Matthews! And his sexist exchange with Warren this week inspired me to revisit those moments and name him https://t.co/oBWXXJDPhR
