Having decided that a new life goal is to lobby for the impeachment of President Trump, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews also made clear over the last week that another objective is to make clear to guests and viewers that Trump’s an illegitimate President because he “won a fluke election” with “Russian help” and that Democrats need “a cheering section.”
Three minutes into the show, Matthews offered this bizarre aside:
I have been trying to figure out for two weeks why this guy is behaving so wacky lately after he won — after he said he won in the Mueller in report. And I’m thinking back, wait a minute. What does he really care more about? His legitimacy. “I won. I won. I won, Mommy. I won. I won. I won. I did it. I did it. I did it.” Well, no. This says you did it with help from Moscow.
Without irony, Matthews had on former Obama official Ben Rhodes and instead of asking him how and why his administration didn’t stop the Russian interference, he let him blather about how “at no stage has [Trump] acted like an innocent man.”
Rhodes added that “the reality of Russian interference does call into question the legitimacy of that victory in part because what gets to the core of our democracy more than whether or not you’re aided by a foreign power or foreign adversary in order to get into that office.”
