Chris Matthews: ‘Anything Saturday Night Live Can Do, Trump Proved This Afternoon He Can Do Worse’

MSNBC’s Chris Matthews concluded his show tonight by saying that President Trump, at his joint presser with Angela Merkel today, did a better job of playing himself “at his most ridiculous” than Alec Baldwin has. “Anything Saturday Night Live can do,” Matthews said, “Trump proved this afternoon he can do worse.” He was referencing Trump not backing down from his wiretapping claims and even joking about how Obama surveillance is something he and Merkel have in common. “He’s willing,” Matthews said, “to make up a story about his predecessor and then make up a story about another country all for purpose of getting himself out of a corner he didn’t like being stuck in.” He closed by appealing to Trump to “quit the comedy” and get serious.
