Bernie Terrifies Carville & The MSNBC Clown Car

Bernie Terrifies Carville & The MSNBC Clown Car


MSNBC’s hosts and guests have a full blown
meltdown, I mean, constantly about Bernie Sanders. It’s, this weekend was crazy. The happiest person right now, it’s about
1:15 Moscow time. This thing is going very well for Vladimir
Putin. I promise you. He, he’s probably staying up watching us right
now. How you doing Vlad? I was reading last night, Brian, I know you’re
a history guy too. I’m reading last night about the fall of France
in the summer of 1940 and the general Reynaud calls up Churchill and says it’s over. It’s like all, they gathered up all the flying
monkeys on cable vision, CNN, MSNBC, and just let them go. I look at this as I’m looking at this, these,
these stories I’m thinking about James Carville comes to my mind. Okay, James Carville understand is the guy
who said Hillary’s gonna win by a landslide. Set it up to the day before the election. He, you know, he sells himself as having this
real contact with what’s happening in America. He is, it’s a fraud. It’s the biggest fraud I’ve ever seen in my
life. He is so disconnected and, and then, and then
the other wonk is, is Chris Matthews who is regarded, he is, this is not my words, these
are the words of a couple of sites that have followed his career and just went back and
tallied how often is he wrong. He’s the wrongest man on cable television. If he says it, you can count that it’s not
going to work out like Chris Matthew says. What’s your take on this story? I think the pundit class right now is freaking
out because this is a continuation of their collective freak out from 2016 when everything
they predicted about Hillary Clinton was wrong. Everything they predicted about Donald Trump
was wrong. And they have consistently gotten it wrong
ever since then and part of the reason that we see that is because people like James Carville,
they’ve actually done stories about how wonderful and opulent this massive mansion is that he
owns. He has made millions of dollars convincing
people as a political consultant that he knows best. And when you go back and you look at his history,
it turns out, well, you’re really not as good as it looks on paper because Bill Clinton,
who Carville and Begala ran the campaign, Clinton only won both of his elections because
Ross Perot siphoned off enough of the vote from the Republicans to put Bill Clinton in
office. And the numbers are clear on that. Right. It’s not you talking, the numbers are clear. Right. But for Ross Perot, Clinton would not have
won. These guys then come out, oh, we’re geniuses. Yes. We got Begala, you know, but okay, here’s
the point. The hysteria continues, right? They move from China hysteria, if you’re a
Democrat, you move from China hysteria, all of our problems. Russia hysteria, Iran, Iranian hysteria, and
so right now I’m looking down the quotes about the Russian hysteria. Here’s Rahm Emanuel. Putin and Trump are picking their opponent. Why does he say that? Because he knows that after the first crazy
talk about Russia, this is the best talking point they’ve got. James Carville right now, let’s see, right
now it’s about 1:15 in Moscow. This thing is going very well for Vladimir
Putin. They know his followers, you know his base
which is disappearing, by the way. Right. The Democratic base is disappearing. They will do all they can to make sure Bernie
Sanders is not there in, in the general election. I mean, it’s going a little overboard right
now I think to where even the people that have been watching them, you know, I’m thinking,
I don’t think so. Right, they’re getting tired of hearing this
same old like Russia, Russia, Russia. Because to them, you know, it’s like the Republicans
and they want to say that George Soros is behind all of the things the Democrats do. Well now the Democrats said, okay, well Vladimir
Putin is behind all the, you’re picking a, a boogeyman that doesn’t quite exist. Yeah. You know, you want to blame them for all of
the evils that happen in this country or all the bad things that happen to your party when
you refuse to look at yourself and say, you know what, maybe somewhere along the way,
me, Chris Matthews or me, James Carville, maybe I screwed up. Maybe I lost touch with the country itself,
living in my ivory tower and so geez, that’s why I’ve been wrong for eight straight years
because I don’t get it. Yeah, we’re gonna stick with, I’m gonna stick
with this topic. I don’t want to go to the next topic, let’s
stick with this topic. Hillary Clinton, okay. Hillary Clinton in this desperate, I mean,
she looks like a crazy woman in this desperation goes on the air, nobody likes Bernie Sanders. Nobody wants to work with Bernie, Bernie Sanders,
he’s accomplished nothing. Would you say that Bernie Sanders has accomplished
nothing or has he created a political revolution in this country? Oh, he’s absolutely created a political revolution
in this country. He’s 100%, you know, funded by average American
citizens and he is raising more money than everybody else. Bernie Sanders has destroyed all of the norms
and that’s another thing that drives them crazy. Conventional wisdom. Talk about conventional wisdom, under the
cable definition of conventional wisdom. What, what is it? Well, the conventional wisdom of today really
needs to be that there is no more conventional wisdom. Right. Because what we’ve seen, everything they predicted
about Bernie Sanders, well, he’s not going to raise money if he can’t have it from corporations. False. Oh well, he’s going to absolutely get destroyed
by Trump. He’s beating him in every poll. Oh, he’s not gonna make it past Iowa. He’s won the popular vote in every state so
far and is poised to take California and Texas and more on Super Tuesday and get this thing
in the bag in just a week and a half. Okay. Let me, let me move to another topic on this. This topic, Chris Matthews, if I have to hear
an MSNBC or CNN talking idiot, use the Nazi Germany kind of equivalent again. I think, you know, what, what it is, they
take these retread recycle almost naive talking points that are always wrong and now we’re
seeing them time after time. They’re all on the same sheet of music. It’s almost like they get this, they get the
morning memo. Talk about Russia and Bernie. Talk about the Nazi Germany and Bernie. It’s almost like this sophomoric, it’s, it’s
sophomoric. It’s naive and the truth of the matter is
they can’t really attack him any way else, can they? No, they can’t attack him on substance. His policies are hugely popular, including
among Republicans and certainly among moderates. So they make things up. They’re making up this, oh well, you know,
Russia, Russia is behind his, his surge here. Or Nazi Germany, invasion of France. What, Chris Matthews has lost it. He has totally lost it. Well, and, and. And, and they know he has, but they keep him
on the air anyway. Well that’s right. I mean, this comment alone, if, if a Fox news
pundit had done this, every single person on the left would immediately be calling for
their firing. There would be advertiser boy, boycotts. Advertisers would pull out. Here we are, MSNBC deathly silent about Chris
Matthews, who clearly should be fired because sadly, this isn’t the first time he’s compared
him to Nazis. Oh, he should be fired over this statement. The guy is, he’s yesterday’s news. Yeah. The guys, what do they call him Tweety bird,
now? Tweety bird is, that’s his, you know, that’s
his new moniker. So Tweety bird has been at this for so long. He’s sucked into the old ways of thinking. As you point out, he is thinking there’s still
a conventional wisdom. There is no conventional wisdom. Obama proved that when Obama ran the conventional
wisdom, oh man, a black man can never win. Right. African American can never win. Conventional wisdom was impossible, and now
we’re hearing these same idiots say the same thing about Bernie Sanders because he really
is in effect creating somewhat of a new political revolution. He has, and they’ve lived in the bubble for
so long though, that they have lost touch. They don’t see what’s actually happening in
this country. The UN put out a phenomenal report about a
week ago talking about how inequality in any society has the potential to destabilize that
democracy. Well, that’s what’s been happening out here. That’s why the conventional wisdom doesn’t
work anymore because people, the average working citizens, are tired of it. They want something different, so they’ve
thrown people like Carville out on their head. Yeah. So, you know, middle the Democrat, you know,
Wall Street Democrats, tomorrow we’re, we’re Bernie bros. Right. Because we’re trying to talk intelligently
about the candidates. Thank you for joining me. Okay. Thank you.
