Tonight, just after 9pmET, Chris Matthews and Keith Olbermann were talking about Hillary Clinton’s keynote speech. The chat ranged from her once formidable campaign, her place in the Clinton legacy, GOP tactics against her, Democratic party unity, and “the feelings of those people who felt they were screwed” by her not being the nominee.
When the discussion started going long, a producer got in Matthews’ earpiece and wrapped him. “I’ll wrap in a second,” Matthews jumped.
Then it got weird.
Olbermmann introduced Democratic House Leader Steny Hoyer, “who has been standing by and listened to us go off at the mouth [making the talking-too-much hand motion] on the subject of the Sen. Clinton speech tonight.”
Matthews took offense: “You made that sound, Keith. I can do the same to you. That’s what I thought and I said it.”
