MSNBC’s Chris Matthews Calls Presidential Debate “Pandering Operation on Israel”
by Zach Pontz
MSNBC host and commentator Chris Matthews certainly wasn’t happy about Monday night’s presidential debate. In this clip taken moments after its conclusion, Matthews, voices his displeasure at the topics discussed earlier in the evening by candidates Barack Obama and Mitt Romney. First, he criticizes the lack of focus on the Latin American drug trade, and then he also mentions other notable oversights, such as discussion on Europe. Matthews’ major gripe was that Israel played too large a role in the debate. “I was disappointed it was sort of a pandering operation on Israel over and over and over again. Say it two or three times—not twenty times,” he said.
