WHAT? Chris Matthews Defends The Tea Party, Praises “Sophisticated” Dave Brat

In a shocking segment on “Ronan Farrow Daily,” MSNBC host Chris Matthews defended the Tea Party (yeah, you read that right) and praised Virginia’s 7th District Republican primary upset victor, Dave Brat.

Matthews said Dave Brat is “very sophisticated for a politician. He’s certainly up to the ranks of most politicians I’ve ever dealt with,” and “he can handle any debate on this program or my program.”

(I can’t believe I’m actually typing this).

But Matthews was just getting started. He then launched into a tirade where he defended grassroots conservatives, saying liberals have to stop “looking down our noses” at the Tea Party. “They have a message, they’re as American as any liberal is, and they’re really angry of the failure of the system.”

Matthew even backed the main frustrations of the Tea Party, saying “we can’t control the deficit, we can’t control the debt, we can’t control the border. What good is government good at? That’s the question that’s happened on every issue we’ve covered on our show.”

Enjoy this version of Chris Matthews while you can. I’m sure he’ll be back to his ignorant fire-breathing self, blaming the Tea Party of all kinds of racism, much sooner rather than later.
