Chris Matthews: Israelis Don’t LIKE Obama. They Must Be Racist!
Vodpod videos no longer available.
Keep in mind Matthews was IN Israel when he said this. Mmm. Mmm. Mmm.
Chris Matthews: Who’s more popular over here? Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, Joe Biden. Put them in order. Who’s the most popular figure over here in Israeli?
Ethan Bronner: Bill Clinton is the most popular of those four. And I would say Hillary is probably next. And then I would say Joe Biden. And then president Obama.
Chris Matthews: Okay, that tells you a lot. So tell me why the President of the United States is so far at the bottom? Is it his middle name? Hussein?
Ethan Bronner: I would say that there is some level of prejudice about the fact that he had some Islamic background through his stepfather. But I think it has more to do with the fact that when he came in to office a year ago he wanted to recalibrate the relationship between the United States and the Muslim world. And the easiest way to do that was to put some distance between the United States and Israel. And he did that. And that made people nervous. I think there’s some sense here, that some degree of racism to be perfectly honest.
Chris Matthews: Yeah, because they see it as a black man.
Uh… Are you sure Israelis don’t like Obama because they’re smart? Because Obama has no interest in protecting and helping our allies? Because he’s a terrorist sympathizer? Because he sides with the terrorists over Israel? Because Obama is a worthless sack of crap?
Oh, Chris. You need to quit worrying about politics and take care of that tingly premature ejaculation you suffer from.
