A left-wing panel at MSNBC had a brief moment of sanity Tuesday, with network host Chris Matthews launching an all-out attack on the “elitist” Democratic Party, saying the American people have had enough of over-educated, smug politicians who think they know better.
Matthews was asked to comment on the legacy of Robert Kennedy 50 years after his assassination, saying the party had lost its way because of “too many elitists” simply out to raise money from wealthy donors.
“A true democrat, lower case ‘d,’ thinks they’re no better than anybody else. That’s what a Democrat is,” Matthews said. “And the party regains that when white, black, Hispanic people, everybody, starts to think of themselves as one of them instead of being better than them. [Then] they’ll get back to the party of the people, and they’re not there yet.”
“There’s so much elitism in the Democratic party, it’s outrageous,” he added.

FIREWORKS: Chris Matthews GETS EDUCATED on Mueller WITCH HUNT
Sparks flew at MSNBC this week after a liberal panel received a thorough education on Russian election interference using social media; with a Republican strategist saying Democrats are thoroughly obsessed with their 2016 loss to Donald Trump.
The fireworks erupted after a Washington Post reporter tried -yet again- to blame Hillary Clinton’s surprise defeat on Russian meddling; saying “Through the troll factories, fake accounts had been put out that were aimed at decreasing particular demographics, and we do have data that some of those demographics did not vote.”
“So, what you’re saying is that despite $1 billion in advertising, despite all the network coverage and all the debates, some Russians somewhere put out a meme on Facebook? That’s insulting to voters,” fired back GOP strategist John Brabender.
“Here’s the thing. The Democrats are right now this group that they need a drug to understand how they lost this election. Russia is the drug,” he added.

“Picking on somebody from one of the coasts, usually ethnic, and making them the poster person of the Democratic Party is old business for Republicans,” said Matthews.
“They did it way back with some guy in the Bronx back in the 40’s,” he added. “They did it with Teddy Kennedy. Now they’re doing it after Nancy Pelosi. They love to get an ethnic sort of person from one of the coasts and make them the bad person.”
