MSNBC's Chris Matthews has been one of the biggest supporters of President Barack Obama in the mainstream media. However, he is quickly becoming one of the harshest liberal critics of the IRS' targeting of conservative groups.

During his show on Wednesday, Matthews compared the IRS targeting Tea Party groups to the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) singling out "everybody that looks Arab" at airports.

The MSNBC host described the IRS' actions as "profiling" and grilled his guest on why the agency thought it was OK to specifically target groups with the phrases "patriot" or "tea party" in their name.

“Is this like, I go to the airport and I’m running TSA, instead of deciding based upon people’s movements around the world that might be suspicious, going to countries that have caused us trouble. I just look for everybody that looks Arab. And I put them in one line," Matthews said. "The American people would say that’s outrageous."
