The Thrill: The Story of Chris Matthews and Barack Obama

The Thrill: The Story of Chris Matthews and Barack Obama, Washington Free Beacon, , January 18, 2017

MSNBC host Chris Matthews infamously pronounced that a 2008 speech delivered by Barack Obama gave him a “thrill going up my leg.”

As this new Washington Free Beacon supercut shows, that thrill remained for the next eight years. The liberal cable host called Obama perfect, incorruptible, and post-racial, claimed he had “never done anything wrong in his life,” and was fond of chalking up opposition to the Obama agenda to racists, racism, and being racist.

Such was Matthew’s love for Obama that he thanked Superstorm Sandy for coming along in 2012 and helping the president’s successful reelection bid, a remark for which he later apologized.

Obama is leaving the White House, but the Tingle is surely there to stay.
