K-Lo Defends Obama From Mean Old Chris Matthews

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

You have probably seen this like ten times by now, where Chris Matthews says Obama went into “the enemy camp” (the White Army) to deliver his speech last night. Shockingly, this pissed off no one more than National Review‘s Kathryn Jean “Jonah Goldberg” Lopez, who declared this moment MSNBC’s “new shameful low” and added, “Chris, he’s commander-in-chief.” What is she THINKING! K-Lo, you’re K-Lo. Hopefully the millions of hateful wingnut e-mails she’s received for uttering this lie will straighten her out. Meanwhile, Meghan McCain had a different reaction.

The world’s most accurate interpretive mind, on fine display:

Meghan jesus christ. Dumb Chris Matthews wasn’t declaring the U.S. Army to be his enemy. Even *K-Lo* had the capacity to complete this kindergarten-level puzzle. Although too bad, because it would’ve be funny if Chris Matthews did mean this and was forced to fight the entire U.S. Army in a gauntlet match.

    ‘golf clap’ @Meghan.

    Meghan is a boobs.

  • iwillsavethispatient

    He actually apologised for saying that later in the show, but said something like “but you know what I meant”. Obviously some people didn’t.

    What I want him to apologise for is for asking guests why they say Cheney as “Chay-knee” instead of “Chee-knee”. YOU INVITED THEM ON YOUR SHOW FOR A REASON, ASK THEM A REAL QUESTION, DAMNIT!

    “Chris Matthews just referred to West Point as “the enemy camp” ….my boobs are going to explode.

    Why does Matthews have to be so visibly unhinged?

    While preparing for her ‘Fear and Loathing’ style book she’s taken the blotter acid and is now using the ether.

    You all are such haterz!

    A Harvard professor and an ultrasecret society of the Vatican, led by a rogue cardinal with plans of becoming pope, race to uncover the lost secrets of Atlantis.

    Meghan knows the lost secrets of Atlantis. And she hasn’t gone rogue. I’m just saying.

    Chris once again pays the price for assuming his audience is literate.

  • Oldskool

    I like her use of “jackass”. He’s a little goofy and apparently obsessed with comparing everything to the plots of old movies. One day I wanna see someone show up wearing a face shield for spittle protection.

    I won’t be able to process all this information until Pat Buchanan neatly condenses the incident into a Nixon era limerick.

    Have you ever noticed that Chris Matthews has the same sweaty, panicky, frothing at the mouth, bug-eyed look as Chris Farley? Please, dear jeebus, DO NOT make us look at Chris Matthews in a Chipendale’s costume!

  • Dustin de Wynde

    Obama said ‘four hundred and twenty’ last night, on the TVs which Time Magazine wrote as ‘420’ in their transcript and for some reason the interwebtubezes isn’t all atwitter about that.

  • Sharkey

    If Meghan really cared, she would explode her head in one of the “bad Afghani” camps.

  • Paul Tardy

    POTUS Obama should have kept on that guy POTUS Bush hired to hold up “Clap or be sent to Iraq and/or Afghanistan” sign. That’s the funny thing about hiring and firing decisions, people you thought were completely useless turn out to be key in certain situations.

  • germansteel

    I pine for the days when a tee vee talking head who said something this stupid was summarily fired.

    Matthews has diarrhea of the mouth and mind. I don’t like Olbermann, either, but at least I can watch his show without wanting to kick the screen in.

    BTW, I’m a die-hard leftie, genuine veteran of 60’s radicalism, etc etc. I hate the stupid, though, even if it’s supposedly from my side of the political/cultural wars.

  • Extemporanus

    [re=470346]comicbookguy[/re]: “This one time, at enemy camp…”

    [re=470367]Oldskool[/re]: I prefer to refer to him by his stage name, “Kanye West Point”.

    Good for you, K-Lo. Not exactly where I expect to find the voice of reason, but hey, I’ll take what I can get these days.

  • queeraselvis v 2.0

    Y’all are missing the most important question of the day: what does K-Lo think of Meghan’s bodacious tatas?

  • shortsshortsshorts

    [re=470388]queeraselvis v 2.0[/re]: Oh— oh thank you. Thank you so much for that.

  • gurukalehuru

    [re=470381]germansteel[/re]: I disagree with you on two counts. First, I don’t really think Chris Matthews qualifies as being “on our side.”
    2nd, I don’t think what he said was completely stupid. When he said “you all know what I meant,” that was reasonably accurate, as long as ‘you all’ doesn’t include Meghan McCain. I think he was wrong because it seems Barry was actually well received and is actually quite well liked by the military, but it wasn’t stupid.

  • Snarkalicious

    I thought the White Army was defeated by the Reds back in 1920 or something. You Leninists or Dr. Zhivago fans out there in Wonkette land, help a comrade please?

  • Alaska Girl

    Megs should know from jackasses, having grown up around a prime example.

  • germansteel


    A tee vee commentator who has to qualify his choice of words with “you know what I meant” is stupid. His stock in trade are his words. Referring to West Point as the “enemy camp” is inane on any level.

  • thefrontpage

    Does anyone here actually know Mecant McKeg? Can anyone tell her to stop messaging on Twitter, to stop posting anything on the internet, to stop appearing on television, and to shut the hell up? A bit of tough love is needed, as she’s nothing but an idiot and a moron.

  • gurukalehuru

    You’ve got to hand it to Barry. The man is a political genius.
    The right is split between “Yes! Yes! More War! Yes!” and “The complexionally challenged evil socialist muslin acorn worshipper is for it, so I’m agin it.”
    Split right down the fucking middle.

  • gurukalehuru

    [re=470406]germansteel[/re]: “The enemy camp” as political metaphor, like that time he participated in the totally rigged debate at that mega-church, I forgot the pastor’s name.
    Really, if the reptilian-Americans weren’t so intent on finding something to scream about,that would have passed almost unnoticed.

  • imissopus

    Geez Tweety, maybe the room full of twenty-year-old kids didn’t seem overly warm because they are wondering which of them will get blown the fuck up in Afghanistan sometime in the next few years and they’re a little, oh, apprehensive about it. You dumb fat sack of crap.

  • comicbookguy

    [re=470410]gurukalehuru[/re]: Of course there’s confusion. It’s a very complexional situation.

  • snideinplainsight

    J-Lo is still a queeftard in my book.

  • snideinplainsight

    Umm, hey Ken, what’s up with the subtle change in the “desert red” (aka PINK) background on the page here? It makes my little icon feel a little more…exposed. A little more obvious.

  • iburl

    Fact of the Day:

    Did you know that Chris Matthews is personally responsible for 99.9% of the use of the term ‘ethnic’ in the 21st century?

    …and now you know.

  • populucious

    Isn’t it clear that by “enemy camp”, Matthews was merely suggesting that usually to get into West Point one must row in the back via canoe disguised as a pretty townie girl, start a food fight in the dining hall and then spy on the counselors making out in the shower? Whereas our Commander in Chief just walked right in the front door!

  • Cicada

    [re=470415]gurukalehuru[/re]: I believe the pastor’s name was “Fatty McDickcheese”. Glad to be of service.

  • Mr Blifil

    Matthews knows the military mindset so well, as a result of his many tours of duty. Along with the many times he hired military anal-yst Jeff Gannon to fuck him in the dumper.

    Chris was actually channeling Dwight (from the Office)

    “West Point is a friend to Paul Wolfowitz. Paul Wolfowitz is an enemy of Obama. A friend of my enemy is my enemy. But Paul Wolfowitz is also his own worst enemy, and an enemy of my enemy is my friend. But…”

  • Advocatus_Diaboli

    [re=470381]germansteel[/re]: If Chris Matthews is on my/our/lefty side, I think the lines need to be redrawn. Do you remember how hard he jacked off to images of commander codpiece?

  • schvitzatura

    John Sidney McCain (Navy, Class of ’58, Ranking: 894 of 899) was not offended by Tweet’s calling that infernal place on the Hudson, in Orange Co., NY as “the enemy camp”, obvs…

    [re=470497]peeno nwar[/re]: You say that now. But wait until Megger’s column in teh Beast in which she bitches that you made her spit of your Purity of Essence. Pig.

    [re=470344]iwillsavethispatient[/re]: Isn’t that the current meme, courtesy of FUXNews?

    ummm…do you remember when he literally admitted that he was in the midst of working up a raging hard-on for then candidate Obama? He’s bi-polar and bi-curious. I think it’s silly to try and say that Matthews isn’t often a devoted fan-boy of this current president.

  • loupgarou

    Would it be controversial for an Obama visit to Mississippi or Oklahoma to be called “going into enemy territory”? Let’s be real–Obama got an even lower percentage of the military vote than he won in Mississippi, or even Oklahoma.
