Chris Matthews opened “Hardball” on Wednesday with a lengthy apology to viewers, pertaining to offensive comments [2] he made on election night while talking about Hurricane Sandy’s effect on President Barack Obama’s re-election.

“I said something terrible,” Matthews said at the top of his MSNBC show. “I said something not just stupid but wrong..”

On Tuesday while assessing Obama’s victory, Matthews said he was “glad” Sandy happened because it showed undecided voters the president could come together with Republican leaders, including New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, to help the superstorm’s victims.

“I’m so glad we had that storm last week,” Matthews said before attempting to clarify himself [3]. “No, politically I should say. Not in terms of hurting people. The storm brought in possibilities for good politics.”
