Hey, Chris—You’re On

by Andrew Johnson

Even when his show is pre-taped, not all of Chris Matthews’s slip-ups can be fixed in the post-show editing. Matthews was hoping for a redo after flubbing his thank you to the Washington Post’s Chris Cillizza, who he accidentally called “Chris Christie” before going to commercial.

Matthews started to thank his guests once more before stopping partway through his second attempt, as a producer can be heard offscreen counting down. From there, Matthews, Cillizza, and Michael Isikoff stared into the camera in silence for nearly 20 seconds.
