CHRIS MATTHEWS: Whatever you think of Donald Trump, I mean, whatever you think of Donald Trump, you have to wonder, why isn't he doing it? Why isn't he running for president? Why isn't he spending every hour asking the voters again and again do you like way things are? The way they've been headed in this country? Do you like the continued destruction of our manufacturing base, and the jobs that went with it?
Do you like the uncontrolled illegal immigration? Do you like the string of stupid wars from Iraq to Libya to Syria? if you want to say yes to all of that, if you want to keep all this way it is, vote for Hillary Clinton. If you don't like the way things have been headed, you have have a chance to really shake the system to its roots. And if you wake up the day after the election, and if it is the same as it is today. If it's the same four, five, or eight years from now, remember you had the chance to change it but you were too dainty to do it.

Chris Matthews never urges anyone to vote for Trump in that video. Your headline contains a lie! You should either fix it, or this thread should go to the LOL or HOAX bin.
What's the date of release on that clip. I'm willing to bet dollars donuts that it's before the primaries, when Bernie Sanders was still in the race.

I would have to see the whole thing. He said it but it appears it was out of context. Even still, just saying it rather shocking. He has been a staunch supporter of the Clintons for a long long time from my understanding. Close to that Walter Cronkite moment where he attacked the Vietnam war. He was the "voice of America" then. Mathews is not the voice of America but he is a big voice for one side of the table.
He seems to devote everyday day after day to fighting fights that make people forget the reasons he started running for president, reasons that continue to carry the shrinking chance he has to win this thing. I say this not because I want Trump to win, but because I can't stand politics being practiced so pathetically.
