His show is called ‘Hardball with Chris Matthews’

Is that because he was once hit on the head with a hardball?

How else to explain this idiotic and tasteless line of questioning?

Via The Blaze.

Juanita Tolliver, a black female guest on MSNBC’s “Hardball with Chris Matthews,” hit back after the show host compared working in a campaign to being enslaved.

Tolliver, who is campaign director for the Center of American Progress Action Fund, appeared Friday on the MSNBC show and discussed her employment history.

“You worked for politicians,” Matthews said. “Did they all insist on slavery?”

Clearly taken aback, Tolliver responded, “Come on. You are talking to a woman of color here, all right? Nothing compares to what happened to my ancestors.”….

Still stuck on the slave bit, Matthews persisted and mentioned former President Lyndon B. Johnson, whom the MSNBC host said was “an awful man” who “did treat his staff like slaves.”….

One social media user wrote, “@msnbc What the hell? Matthews is so hard to take! I record the last few minutes of his show just before All In starts. Not any more! He is the worst with women. And this? Damn! Apologize to Juanita Tolliver @hardball! You have racial issues Chris!! You do!”

Another added, “Chris, I hope you apologized to your guest Juanita Tolliver for your ill conceived comments to a woman of color about being treated ‘like a slave.'”
