MSNBC host Chris Matthews claims he 'tried to warn we were headed too far left'

Former MSNBC host Chris Matthews has triggered a backlash from progressives after he made panicky comments claiming that he "tried to warn we were headed too far left."

Matthews is a moderate Democrat who was replaced by the far-left Joy Reid when he left MSNBC last year.

He "shocked viewers in March 2020 by announcing he would immediately step down from his program amid a series of controversies,” Fox News reported.

"During his on-air remarks, the longtime MSNBC host then referenced claims of sexual harassment against him by a journalist who previously appeared on his show.”

"I want Hardball fans to know how I appreciate your faith in me,” Matthews tweeted.

"2022 could be a great time to show what we’ve learned."

"I tried to warn we were headed too far left,” he added in his Twitter post.

Matthews comments prompted a flood of furious responses from the Left, however.

Notable leftist responses included:

Will Brunch, columnist: “This is your takeaway from a year in which right-wing authoritarians tried to stage a violent coup??”

Jay Rosen, NYU journalism professor: “Good lord. Have some dignity, man. Be thankful you’re not Halperin and… I don’t know— watch football games. Read some Churchill biographies. Try Lowe’s.”

Gary Legum, blogger: “Did he get into some leftover eggnog?”

David Cross: “‘Too far left’ Yes that’s the real problem, we hired the centrist VP of a centrist president who isn’t able to get legislation passed that would make a centrist appear somewhat leftist but only relative to how right leaning our current leftists are.”

David Atkins: “An evidence-free, self-serving take that perfectly exemplifies what was wrong with Hardball in the first place.”

Andrew Perez, writer: “Don’t worry your old pundit colleagues have that narrative covered.”

Michael Sainato, writer: “Remember when this old creep ‘retired’ for sexual harassment only to try to creep back up to froth at the mouth a little more about the left?”

Peter Daou:LOL. I still remember when I launched the #TooFarLeft hashtag in response to Obama and it trended #1.”

Walker Bragman: “Imagine watching Biden squander the first trifecta Democrats have had in a decade in the face of an existential climate crisis and an escalating pandemic and thinking ‘we need more of that!'”

Max Berger: “The United States has the highest poverty rate in the OECD (17.8%), and the 3rd highest level of income inequality.”
