Cue the sad trombone.

MSNBC host, Chris Matthews, admitted the media and the Democrats attempts to portray President Trump’s campaign as colluding with Russia, fell apart.

“The assumption of the critics of the president, of his pursuers, you might say, is that somewhere along the line in the last year is the president had something to do with colluding with the Russians … to affect the election in some way,” Matthews opined after former FBI Driector James Comey’s testimony.

“And yet what came apart this morning was that theory.”

You know it’s bad when you lose the one guy who constantly gets a thrill up his leg over Trump’s predecessor.


Via the Washington Examiner:

Liberal MSNBC host Chris Matthews said Thursday the accusation that President Trump directly colluded with Russia to interfere in the U.S. election “came apart” following former FBI Director James Comey’s testimony in front of Congress.

“And yet what came apart this morning was that theory,” Matthews said, listing two reasons why. First, he said Comey revealed that “Flynn wasn’t central to the Russian investigation,” and secondly, he said that kills the idea that Flynn might have been in a position to testify against Trump.

“And if that’s not the case, where’s the there-there?” Matthews said.

Fox News host, Sean Hannity, took a moment to acknowledge Matthews’ rare moment of candor.

“Ah, a moment of enlightenment, even for Chris Matthews,” he said.

It’s actually a moment that should have come long, long ago. Multiple individuals have said all along there is no evidence of a Russia/Trump collusion story.

Maybe Matthews is enlightened, but it seems more likely that we’re looking at evidence of the broken watch theory.
