Koch Brothers Derangement Syndrome: Chris Matthews BULLIES Michigan AFP Director over who pays his salary

Chris Matthews, plagued with Koch Brothers derangement syndrome, bullied Scott Hagerstrom, the Michigan Director for Americans for Prosperity for the entire interview, continually asking him who pays his salary. Every time he went to Hagerstrom he always ended up back on that same question, accusing him of working for the Koch Brothers over and over. Hagerstrom tried to turn the interview back toward the policy but Matthews wouldn’t relent, basically portraying AFP as some secretive shadowy group doing the bidding of one angry old man or something.

    Chrissy Matthews is a bully!! That is all …

    • You have to have a spine to even hope to achieve bully status. He only rates, whiney.

      • TXLadyPatriot

        “You have to have a spine to even hope to achieve bully status.”

        True! Which means without a spine, Chrissy would lose that sensational tingle up his leg. Hahaha!!

  • TexasBanker

    Koch Bros. aren’t nothin compared to George Soros

  • sjmom

    Matthews acts like a bully and the AFP representative held his own pretty well. I would have turned off the mic and walked away because I wouldn’t tolerate his nonsense.

  • NovElection2016

    And who pays the salaries of these convicted union criminals on this site? The MEMBERS! http://nlpc.org/union-corruption-update?q=category/project-name/union-corruption-update

    • FreeManWalking

      And the ones that do not want to be members, but not for long.

  • badbadlibs

    These leftists/Marxist/communists are so full of themselves. They can’t stand for any other opinion, ideology, process to be put in place unless they agree with it. Matthews couldn’t know what democracy or liberty means.
    He’s a piece of work from the trash heap if ever there was one.

    • Lime Lite

      They try to muzzle anyone who doesn’t spout their regressive policies. You’d think that Matthews would be only too happy to hear that workers are now NOT forced to pay union dues even if they aren’t part of the union. Instead all he rants on about is the Koch brothers, who have EMPLOYED more people than Matthews knows. This is all about liberals and their collective mindset. Would Matthews be happy for someone to take part of his salary to fund a Republican backing organisation, as unions do the Democrats?

      • badbadlibs

        Good question there at the end, Lime Lite. Wish someone would ask him, it would be fun to watch him spit and stammer over that answer.

      • Rshill7

        Everybody with a part on TV is union I believe.

        • Dukehoopsfan

          It is a closed shop. All of the entertainment and broadcast industry belongs to one union or another.

  • Orangeone

    Hey Chrissy, at least the AFP Director works for a living! What’s your excuse?

  • Nukeman60

    The problem Hagerstrom has is he feels he has to answer any question Chrissy asks, no matter how stupid it is. Liberals never do that. If they are asked a question they don’t like, they just ignore it and bring up their talking points. People on the right have always fallen into the trap the liberals set for them, just by trying to be polite and have a civil discourse.

    Sooner or later, someone has to tell Matthews he is ignorant and he ought to grow up and shut up.

  • marketcomp

    You know these deranged lunatics won the election so why are they so angry? The Koch Brothers have done more for America than either Obama or MSNBC aka MSLSD! They all act like they are on cocaine or crack on that station.

  • Rshill7

    Couldn’t Piss Matthews have hung a picture of this guy and the Koch Brothers and threw little pink darts at them instead? Shoo’tem with a Red Ryder BB gun or something? He could make three of those inflatable thingamabobs that stand back up after you hit ’em and just have his way with them.

    I’d like to get Matthews a dartboard with an automatic return feature. I think he’s inflatable, making the gift all the more gratifying.

  • I bet his target audience loved this… shorty after the Governor signed the bill.

    Suck it, Union thugs, now Michigans unemployment rate will go down

  • Erdnay

    I want to know who pays Chris Matthews salary and why. Why is he even allowed to keep his job ? Why is he allowed to suck valuable oxygen out of our environment ? Why ?

    • FreeManWalking

      I heard an outreach program of AAA fronted the funds.

  • FreeManWalking

    That tingle up crissy’s leg must have shatter his ear drum…


  • hventure22

    Are you deranged Chris? Possibly mentally deficient in some way? The man answered. He works for AFP. He probably has no idea who’s footing the bills on that.

    This is going to get ugly folks, really ugly. At some point you can’t reason with the unreasonable and he didn’t want to hear anything from Scott Hagerstrom that wasn’t “Yes the Koch brothers are behind all of it”.

  • notebene

    I would have retorted to Tingles Matthews, “And how much do you have to kiss Soros’ behind to produce the propaganda you try to pass off as news?” At least the Koch Brothers are Americans…Soros is a Greek! Last I checked Greece was in economic implosion. Wonder how often Soros helps his own?

    • CitizenVetUSA

      György Schwartz, better known to the world as George Soros, was born August 12, 1930 in Hungary. Soros’ father, Tivadar, was a fervent practitioner of the Esperantoa language invented in 1887, and designed to be the first global language, free of any national identity.

      The Schwartz’s, who were non-practicing Jews, changed the family name to Soros, in order to facilitate assimilation into the gentile population, as the Nazis spread into Hungary during the 1930s.

      When Hitler’s henchman Adolf Eichmann arrived in Hungary, to oversee the murder of that country’s Jews, George Soros ended up with a man whose job was confiscating property from the Jewish population. Soros went with him on his rounds.

      Soros has repeatedly called 1944 “the best year of his life.”

      “70% of Mr. Soros’s fellow Jews in Hungary , nearly a half-million human beings, were annihilated in that year, yet he gives no sign that this put any damper on his elation, either at the time or indeed in retrospect.”


      • badbadlibs

        Just don’t get anymore evil then soros. Thanks for the added info on satan’s side kick!

  • Tingles. Never a dull moment.

    • I’m actually happy that Tingles doesn’t know who AFP are. He said “Who’s that?.” Paid no mind to us Tingles, why we slowly wrestle power away from your tyrannical enthusiasts at the State level.

  • GJPinks

    I feel sorry for Chrissy. Suffering both from loss oh hearing and dementia.


    whose paying chris salary the unions ? obama? this guy is a lunitic

  • Sober_Thinking

    Does ANYONE even take Chris Matthews seriously anymore? He’s nothing more than a gnat.

  • johnos2112

    Next time Richard Trumka comes on Chris ask him who he works for!


    … Chris , SHUT UP . “

  • semby

    Hey Chris; what about your relationship with George Soros and John Podesta, do tell.
    Chris is a scumbag.

  • agas84363

    matthews you are an ASS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • repubboy

    Chris Matthews is psychopathic..He is absolutely loosing his grip on reality. He has never been able to get over his hate for the Koch brothers.

  • yanksrule

    Holy crap… i would pay good money to be on deck and watch Tingles slip overboard and cry for help as he is drowning and i alas i couldn’t help because i was to busy filming it so i could post it on YouTube..

  • syvyn11

    Even if he were working for the Koch Brothers…. BIG FREAKING DEAL! It’s not like the Koch bros sold out fellow jews to Nazis. Like that other guy did.

    But thing is Soros supports the right people, so he gets a pass.

  • syvyn11

    I bet his wife hates putting on the Barack Obama mask so he can make love to her.

  • 27Words

    Earlier comments calling Matthews a bully are all wrong… this video adds to the volumes that illustrate he’s actually a hack, an idiot a marxist.

  • When an obama propagandist media hack like Mathews interviews anyone, how else would he act..

    Ie; Indoctrinated imbeciles like Mathews have the intelligence of peanut.. My apologies to peanuts..

  • RonPaulSupporter2

    Do we really expect anything else but crap like this from Matthews?

    Chris: Who pays your salary?
    Scott: Americans For Prosperity.
    Chris: Who pays your salary?
    Scott: I just told you, Americans for Prosperity.
    Chris: Who pays your salary?
    Scott: Chris, I just told you, Americans for Prosperity.
    Chris: Who’s paying you?
    Scott: Chris, I just told you Americans for Prosperity.
    Chris: Again, for the fifth time, who pays your salary?
    Scott: I keep telling you, Americans for Prosperity.

    Oh, brother!

  • Yazz55

    Who’s paying those greedy fascist commie pigs (union) to be out there agitating and inciting?

  • Jay

    Amazing that they let Matthews out of his straight jacket long enough to do the show.

  • GeorgeRomero

    Yeah , but do you work for barrak hussein obama cwissy$$$?

  • bobemakk

    Chris Matthews should be removed from the networks. He spews such odd comments at times that I don’t understand how he is still on the air. I guess because “he gets a thrill up his leg…”/LOL

    Unions $uck, the take away our constitutional rights, and ruin the economy with their demands. Freedom of choice to work with or without joining a union should be our own choice.

  • jimmie smith

    While in my younger years I was “union”, and have come too realize that private sector unions are parasitical by nature. Taking companies to the brink of bankruptcy, and in some cases destroying them (the Ho’s Ho’s and Twinkies company). However, what is worse is public sector unions. There is nothing between them and the taxpayer other than a politician and a union leader with nothing more in there minds, than how much more money they can squeeze out of us with little or no opposition. That’s where the true Parasites exist…

  • Matthews, go to your boss and call him “you capitalist pig!”.
    We’ll be able to read his shoe size on your face (I meant “butt”, but they are exchangeable on you).
    You should wear your underwear on your head.

  • mikeinidaho

    I never watch that spittle-spewing communist moron, EVER. That he seems to find a Koch Brother behind every conservative I find laughable and stupid. But then that perfectly describes Tinkle-Leg Mathews, doesn’t it? Dumber than a box of communists!

  • Biggbear52

    Hey Crissy. Your salary is paid mainly by George Sorros and you blasted well know it. Other than that the MSNBC joke is funded by subsidies. That mutten head is TAX DOLLARS. You were fired from Fox and no other right thinking news group would remotely consider you as a viable journalist. So just admit that you are BOUGHT AND PAID FOR! Quite honestly bud, i personally say liken to that white stuff that forms on the edges of your mouth when super thirsty! Or what comes out of your back side.
