MSNBC’s Chris Matthews speculates Democrats may be better off with Trump as president than Sanders

WaEx: MSNBC host Chris Matthews wondered if the Democratic Party would be better off if President Trump wins reelection rather than if Sen. Bernie Sanders takes over the White House.

Matthews, 74, brought up the possibility that centrist Democrats may prefer Trump over the socialist Sanders during the network’s Saturday afternoon coverage of the Nevada caucuses. The host of Hardball with Chris Matthews was leading a conversation about how centrist candidates were splitting the vote, likely a detriment to one another but a benefit for Sanders.

“I’m wondering whether the Democratic moderates want Bernie Sanders to be president,” he said. “That’s maybe too exciting a question to raise. They don’t like Trump at all. Do they want Bernie Sanders to take over the Democratic Party in perpetuity? I mean, he takes it over, he sets the direction of the future of the party — maybe they’d rather wait four years and put in a Democrat that they like.” read more

  1. President Trump is winning dems over.

    He gives the farmers in California water (a popular idea).

    He commutes Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s sentence (a popular governor in Illinois).

  2. They laughed at Trump when he said in a rally speech, “You may hate me, but you’ll vote for me anyway.”

    The talking head elite shit-for-brains in DC and the media are so used to in the moment verbal tactics that they have zero clue in regards to strategy and fundamental common-sense competency at managing anything that they constantly paint themselves into corners with their complete lack of foresight and wisdom. Sanders is the personification of the stupid shit democrats have been saying for years to get votes. Bloomberg is the personification of the patronizing, tyrannical ruling style of actual democrats who hate this country and its actual citizens while never passing up a chance to suck China’s dick. Fuck them all. JFC.

  3. I’m starting worry about Chris, (Trump watch your back), Matthews.
    I think the leg warming from his Obama love has tickled backwards, the first sign of Sepsis,,,

  4. Chris Matthews needs to take a lesson from history. The only thing that will stop Bernie Sanders is a modern day version of Ramon Mercader. He performed his assignment well enough to rid Stalin of Leon Trotsky.

    Alright, Chris. Clearly you’re not “wondering”, at all. Just stringing noises together. Like a million illiterate monkeys. Faced with a million typewriters. So, they screech. At the cameras.

  6. Republicans went through this twice with McCain and Romney, and the Democrats most recently with Hillary. They won’t necessarily cross over, but may likely just stay home. If large amounts of Democrats stay home, that will also hurt the Democrat down tickets – which isn’t a bad thing.

  7. Do Americans who hate freedom feel like traitors?

    Americans seem to think that because they have never been sent to concentration camps then they will never be sent to concentration camps.

    The state thinks they can play God with the lives of people, but who knows what is best for you?

    If the government shuts down the border to prevent 100,000 people from catching a disease, what is the benefit if 1 million die from starvation?

    If the government shuts trains and buses to stop a virus, can’t illness spread on airplanes?

    Freedom is good. Tyranny is bad.

    There is a reason people tried to escape from the USSR and not Switzerland.

    Americans think that they will be safe living in a police state, but do you honestly think that you can never be killed in a prison?

    Never think that you know what is best for others. If you feel that smoking is dangerous and should be banned then don’t be surprised if the government outlaws guns.
