• Chris Matthews Blames Trump For ‘Racist Crap’ After Audience Member Calls Obama a Muslim

    Chris Matthews, host of Hardball slammed Donald Trump on Thursdays broadcast of Hardball GOP presidential frontrunner fielded a question from a man who said President Obama is a Muslim and not American.

    Matthews claimed racism is the “original sin of Donald Trump” and said it’s important to cover Trump on the campaign trail so he can easily dig his own grave.

    “This is racist crap, of course, and to me it’s the biggest original sin of Donald Trump,” Matthews said. “Before he went after people from Mexico as rapists, which was outrageous. Long before that, he said our president was an illegal immigrant. He played that card and he’s still playing it. I like to let him talk himself to death. I think he should build his own grave instead of people saying don’t show him an action. I’m glad as hell we throw this in action. Your thoughts? Show him as he is”

    Matthews recalled the infamous moment when John McCain showed “leadership” by reprimanding a supporter who said the same thing.

    “I’m not a hater,” Matthews said of Trump. “I try to understand Trump for what show he’s putting on. And the original sin of Trump is this birther thing. John McCain I think had a profile in courage a couple of years back when a woman said the same thing at a town hall meeting just like this. She said he’s an Arab. He said no, he’s a good American, we just happen to disagree.”
