Matthews seems to be feeling the heat today and told MSNBC viewers that if they vote for a third or fourth party candidate like Gary Johnson or if they choose not to vote at all, they are idiots and he doesn’t want to talk to them:
POLITICO – Matthews was a guest at Wagner’s table today but largely controlled the conversation as he railed against people who either weren’t intending to vote or intended to vote for a third-party candidate.
“If you don’t vote, you’re an idiot,” Matthews yelled at the camera. “If you don’t vote, I don’t want to talk to you. And if you vote for one of these numbskull third or fourth party candidates like Gary Johnson or Jill Stein and say, ‘Oh, I was so surprised at what happened. …’ No! You shouldn’t be! Because idiots like you voted for third- and fourt-party candidates, and they don’t know how this system works. You have two choices.”
Matthews has many fans on the left, but he probably just lost the Green Party.
