RCP: MSNBC’s Chris Matthews reacts to people protesting the election of Donald Trump to the presidency.
“I’m always open to the economic argument,” Matthews said on the Thursday broadcast of his show Hardball. “I do accept that Marxist tradition, really, which is a good one which is always try to explain elections by economics. And I think it always works.”
“How about those protestors,” Matthews said. “What would you say to those kids? Most of them in their 20s. I think they do go to school during the day. I think they came out of NYC last night up from downtown in the [West] Village and they marched all the way past Trump Tower to make their statement.”
“What kind of a statement is it really there to make?” Matthews asked. “They lost.” MORE
