MSNBC Commentator Chris Matthews Refers to Gingrich as a ‘Car Bomber’ and Fox News Commentator Refers to Obama as a ‘Skinny Ghetto Crackhead’


On his Wednesday show, Chris Matthews said that Newt Gingrich “looks like a car bomber” who “loves torturing.”

Gingrich was discussing the potential Republican presidential field with the Chicago Tribune’s Clarence Page and The Huffington Post’s Sam Stein. He said Gingrich couldn’t win the nomination because of his past.
“How many times he been married?” Matthews said. “…You can’t just wipe the board clean and say, that wasn’t just me that got kicked out of the speakership for totally embarrassing the country with ethics in his personal life. I mean, how can he walk back and in and say, ‘That wasn’t me?'”
Page started to speak, but Matthews interrupted him.

A Fox News guest said that some people might want to describe President Obama as a “skinny, ghetto crackhead” Thursday night.
The Conservative Media Research Center’s Brent Bozell appeared on Fox News and was interviewed by guest host Mark Steyn. Steyn replayed a March 2011 clip from Chris Matthews’ MSNBC show, when Matthews described Newt Gingrich as looking “like a car bomber” who “loves torturing.”
Steyn and Bozell both responded to the clip. Steyn said that he wasn’t much of a “Newt fan,” but thought the GOP candidate looked more like a “cuddly…Winnie the Pooh.”
