Chris Matthews: Republicans 'all programmed a certain way

Chris Matthews, host of MSNBC's Hardball asked a panel on Tuesday: "Is there a cultural problem with the Republican Party as opposed to most Americans?"

He kept talking, didn't he?

Matthews continued: "Republicans are told to 'read the Wall Street Journal, play golf, and talk about pro sports.' The men especially are all programmed a certain way. They don't have too many outliers, Republicans. They all behave basically the same, right?"

Then he reiterated the stereotype further, saying, "(Republicans) must play golf, you don't play tennis. You must watch sports and talk about the NFL. And what else? Read the Wall Street Journal and believe the op-ed page."



Is this guy really serious?

Fox's The Five had a good time responding to Matthews' bold assertions, with Greg Gutfeld, Geraldo Rivera, and Kimberly Guilfoyle all proclaiming that they're Republicans who don't fit the profile lined out by the Hardball host.

Gutfeld made it clear that he's not a golfer, doesn't own khaki's, has a libertarian view on some drugs and plays punk and death metal music.

Rivera said, "When you start stereotyping, that's [a] problem." And Guilfoyle quipped that there "must be something in the air conditioning" in Rockefeller center that prompts Matthews' outlandish comments.

It isn't the first time either, right?

Chris Matthews is infamous (notorious) for making statements that raise eyebrows from anyone leaning even slightly away from the left politically. Back in February, he accused the Republican Party of symbolically "goose-stepping" for President Trump in the same way North Korea's army serves to please their leader, Kim Jong Un.
