MSNBC’s Chris Matthews just said one of the dumbest things of his career. Susan Rice was caught red-handed in a huge scandal, yet Chris Matthews believes that the only reason people are angry at her is because she is a black woman… what?
He started by saying that the Republican’s are always out to get someone. “Notice it’s always a female? Just a thought,” said Matthews. Matthews guest Mother Jones editor David Corn took the thought even further. “Did she do something wrong? There is no information indicating that. So they are making her, you know, basically they’re defaming her without any reason to do so because she’s a woman. Maybe because she’s a black woman. Maybe because they didn’t like her during Benghazi,” said Corn.
The women on Outnumbered were not happy with this. Harris Faulkner and Eboni Williams were particularly angry about they way they talked about black women. “Oh no, you have got to be kidding me! I haven’t seen that. Because she’s a black woman? That’s crazy,” said Faulkner in her original reaction.
“You can’t get to the truth because she’s black and she’s a woman? Neither one of those men are serious,” continued Faulkener.
“I don’t know what their motivations for that black-woman-illusion crap is, but it actually discredits and undermines really us and … me as a black woman … What exactly is it that you’re implying? That somehow we as black women are less capable, less accountable and less credible than others?” said Eboni Williams. Check out the video below.
