MSNBC's Matthews Strikes Again: Slams Palin

Wednesday, 18 May 2011 10:33 AM

MSNBC “Hardball” host Chris Matthews went on a tirade against former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin Tuesday night, saying he hoped she would not run for the GOP presidential nomination and adding she is "profoundly stupid," the Daily Caller reports.

His comments came as he and guests were discussing Minnesota Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann’s shot at the 2012 GOP presidential nomination and whether Palin might run. Matthews immediately fired off about Palin, downplaying her viability.

“I think Sarah Palin proved herself to be — I think she’s proven herself to be profoundly stupid,” Matthews said to applause on-location in Los Angeles. “Her inability to answers the questions of Katie Couric, her inability of even now to explain if she ever reads anything.”

“Her absolute failure to begin studying and get serious about running for president,” he continued. “She has shown no effort to doing any homework or understanding issues about the economy or science or the world. No effort and she’s running for president? I don’t believe she would be at all helpful to our republic.”
