Chris Matthews compliments Obama as ‘cold blooded’

Published

on

MSNBC’s Chris Matthews paid an odd compliment to President Barack Obama Tuesday.

“This president is — and I mean this positively — cold blooded,” he said.

“I think people who are chief executives of this country and they have all the fire power before them, they have to be willing to use it or they shouldn’t take the job. It’s very simple. If you’re not willing to use our military power, if you’re not willing to kill people when you have to, you shouldn’t take that job.”

“This president is not a wimp about using power,” he added. “In fact, I dare say he’s pretty cold blooded. He went after the pirates, he actually called for the contract, he called for the hit. He did it again here.”

Watch this from MSNBC’s Hardball, broadcast May 3, 2011.

‘This is not a reality TV show’: Democrat shuts down Rep. Collins when he tries to stop her questions about obstruction

"I would just ask, is the gentle lady accusing the president of a crime?" Collins asked.

Lewandowski’s testimony will let Democrats build Nixon-like articles of impeachment: Ex-prosecutor

Published

on

As President Donald Trump's former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski combatively testified before the House Judiciary Committee, he admitted that Trump asked him to communicate to then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions that former special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation must be shut down. Aside from that revelation, most of the testimony was unproductive, with Lewandowski lashing out at members of Congress and running interference for the president.

But as former federal prosecutor Renato Mariotti wrote on Twitter, these outbursts — and the fact that Trump sanctioned the way that Lewandowski behaved in the hearing — could be the basis for Democrats to write up articles of impeachment against Trump similar to those drafted against Richard Nixon in 1974:

Zuckerberg: new Facebook panel can overrule him

Published

on

Facebook said Tuesday it has finalized its charter for its "independent oversight board," giving the panel the authority to overrule chief executive Mark Zuckerberg on questions of appropriate content.

The new entity, based on Zuckerberg's call for a "supreme court" that would make difficult calls on what is suitable content for Facebook, is moving closer to reality with the charter released by the social network.

Zuckerberg said in a statement the independent panel would have the final say on these matters of what belongs on the social platform.

"If someone disagrees with a decision we've made, they can appeal to us first, and soon they will be able to further appeal to this independent board," he said.
