Although he offered no actual proof or evidence of this.
Despite early election predictions in Israel late Tuesday ranging from a split vote to a slim victory for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews showed his disdain for both Netanyahu and President Trump, suggesting the President’s policy moves (directly and indirectly) related to the Middle East were solely to exercise improper influence on the election.
Of course, Matthews forgot to mention the Obama administration’s dislike of Netanyahu and the role an Obama adviser and U.S. tax dollars played in (unsuccessfully) working to defeat him in 2015.
“[A]head of today’s election in Israel, President Trump went out of his way to politically boost his friend, Benjamin Netanyahu, making some stunning policy shifts that could have far-reaching ramifications for our country,” complained Matthews in one of two teases for a seven-minute segment of nonsense.
Before introducing Bloomberg’s Shannon Pettypiece and Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson, Matthews stated that “historically….American presidents have abstained in getting involved in Israeli politics, opting instead to play the roles of — two roles — friend of Israel, but also regional honest broker,” but Trump “broke with predecessors…to ensure that his friend…was victorious today.”
But, as stated in the article, it was OK when O actually did get involved in the last Israeli election against Netanyahu:
“Of course, Matthews forgot to mention the Obama administration’s dislike of Netanyahu and the role an Obama adviser and U.S. tax dollars played in (unsuccessfully) working to defeat him in 2015.”
Matthews “forgot” to mention?? I don’t think so!
