This is just straight up creepy. When even the compliant press turn against you there is clearly something very rotten in Denmark. From Politico:
The White House Correspondents Association is strongly urging the Obama administration to allow press access to the president’s official swearing-in ceremony on Jan. 20, following indications from inauguration committee officials that the event could potentially be closed to the press.
Because inauguration day falls on a Sunday in 2013, Chief Justice John Roberts will officially administer the official oath of office in a private ceremony that day. The public inauguration on the Capitol Building’s West Front — at which Roberts will administer a second, symbolic oath of office— will take place the next day.
Chris Matthews just had another one of his famous on air breakdowns. As you will see in the clip below he stated:
“If you don’t vote, I don’t want to talk to you. And if you vote for one of these numbskull third or fourth party candidates like Gary Johnson or Jill Stein and say, ‘Oh, I was so surprised at what happened…’ No! You shouldn’t be! Because idiots like you voted for third and fourth party candidates, and they don’t know how this system works. You have two choices.”
Excuse me Mr. Matthews, but I’m pretty sure everyone that is voting third party knows EXACTLY how the system works, which is precisely why they are voting third party. I guess no one told Chris about the tingle I got down my leg and I pulled the lever for Gary Johnson.
Watch Chris Matthews lose it on live television here.
