FreedomWorks chairman and former Texas Congressman Dick Armey says MSNBC host Chris Matthews is losing his grip on reality. Asked by Fox & Friends co-host Brian Kilmeade to comment on Matthews recently comparing the Tea Party to the radical Muslim Brotherhood, Armey replied,
"I don’t know whether it’s his age or what, but he just seems to be slipping out of touch with reality."It's not like Matthews' descent into madness is anything new. We've been reporting on his hate-filled and misogynistic attacks on Gov. Palin for years. So as far as Matthews "losing touch with reality," that trainwreck left the station a long, long time ago.
Lachlan Markay of Newsbusters writes that in addition to repeatedly implying Republicans are racists, he has called Glenn Beck "absolutely crazy", compared the Tea Party to "Nazi stuff", and has done his best to connect Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachmann to the tragic shooting in Tucson.
So numerous are Matthews' attacks that Newsbusters has an entire section highlighting his vicious rhetoric.
