Chris Matthews Compares Trump to Woody Allen: ‘What’s Reality Ever Done for Me?’

On MSNBC’s Hardball with Chris Matthews, the titular host convened a roundtable discussion on President Trump’s characterization of the special counsel on Russia as a “witch hunt”. Assailing the president on his administration’s concept of “alternative facts” with the Huffington Post’s Peter Emerson, Matthews said: “The other day, I compared him to Woody Allen–who lives in his own world. He’s a creative guy–knocks out a movie a year. Some of them are pretty good. Every year or so. But he always has a movie. But he once said, ‘What’s reality ever done for me?’ But you can be a creative force in the arts. But when it comes to running the United States government, in a very complicated, dangerous world–where you have a military that’s unimaginable in its power and enemies that really want to hurt us–you have to deal with reality…” Matthews has been having quite time with Trump’s White House the past few days, going after the president for general “BS” and even potential “perjury“.
