MSNBC Chris Matthews’ new low on Benghazi

MSNBC’s Chris Matthews has said some pretty pathetic things in his tenure with the most untrusted news network on television.

The bombastic host tends to go into overdrive when his liberal icons are being exposed, as was the case Tuesday, when he addressed former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her pesky Benghazi problem.

“Even though weeks and months and months, actually months and months, almost a year now, of pushing this Benghazi button has succeeded,” he said, “to the point where 52 percent of independent voters now think they have questions about it.”

Wow.  Wait. They think they have questions about it. Those silly voters. They don’t have questions – they just think they have questions.

“Does she have to deal with that new reality, even though she knows it was confected, or not?” Matthews asked. “I don’t know whether she can dismiss it or belittle the people asking the question now.”

“I think she went too far in the confessional booth,” he said, of her admissions in a recent interview with Diane Sawyer.

Then came the sickening lecture:

My view is get with it, guys. We live in the Third World, we’ve got a country like Libya that doesn’t really have a government. We’re relying on the local militia to protect us. It’s a late night over a weekend.

The ambassador there, who she really liked personally as a friend, took a risk and went out there, and it was the bad move.

You can’t control the universe. The idea that you somehow have to blame it on some systems fault always seems to me like an overreach of confession. I wish somebody out there could just say, on Hillary’s behalf, “Dammit, it’s the real dangerous world out there. And if we’re all going to retreat from there and hide and don’t do what Chris Stevens did, the ambassador, retreat back and hide in the bunker of the embassy, you know, in Tripoli or wherever, of course we’re never going to have relations with the Third World.”

But you got to get out there and take risks and sometimes you get killed. And that’s part of the business. And just be tough and talking to people about the real world. And stop playing games with little people like oh, we have to protect everybody out there. We have soldiers killed every hour.

If you can stomach it, here is the audio:
