Chris Matthews on Debate: “Trump Probably Likes The Look Of It,” It Was A Boxing Match

MSNBC’s Chris Matthews says Elizabeth Warren has fought herself back into the race by taking it to Michael Bloomberg over his NDAs with women at the NBC News Democratic presidential debate in Las Vegas. He also pointed out that Pete Buttigieg would not lay up on Amy Klobuchar and kept “punching her wound over and over again.” However, Matthews said President Trump was probably pleased to see Democrats fight among themselves in the spirited debate. Matthews called it “telling” that no candidate would agree that whoever has the most delegates going into the convention should receive the nomination except for Bernie Sanders, who the host referred to as “we know who.” “There’s only one candidate who believes he’s going to have the most delegates going into Milwaukee, and we know who it was,” Matthews said. “The guy that said that person should be the winner. Everybody else said I will not have the most delegates. They all made it official. They were not going to give the win to the person with the most delegates. That was so telling tonight. Today it was an acknowledgment that Bernie is the winner, not the winner, the winner so far in this whole fight. And he may be the winner all the way. I think they think so.”

CHRIS MATTHEWS: Well, I never saw anything like it. It was the Roman Coliseum. It was boxing in the 1950s. You wait for the other guy — Carmen Basilio or someone like that — to get a cut over their eye, and then you keep punching the cut over their eye over and over and over again. That’s what they did to Bloomberg. That’s what Elizabeth Warren did to Bloomberg. She knew his weakness was the NDA, and she kept punching the spot, and it kept bleeding and bleeding. He had no way to stop it. He didn’t have a cut man. He should have had somebody before the event tonight, this is what they’re going to hit you on and they are going to keep hitting you until you answer release the women or something. I think that’s what it was about tonight. What we saw is also Elizabeth Warren who was really doing the punching. She came back tonight, I think she’s fought herself back into third place, maybe better, make second out here. I think she’s probably disappointed she wasn’t tougher in New Hampshire. Everybody said that she wasn’t the fighter. She was the fighter tonight. I believe she hit every other single candidate. I don’t think she made her way to Biden. If not, it was only because she didn’t think it was worth it. She hit every other candidate hard, really hard. And I think it was because she has to get her position back in the top tier. I thought Buttigieg would not lay up on Klobuchar. He wouldn’t lay up on the fact she didn’t know the president of Mexico. He kept punching her weak spot, her wound, over and over again. It was the boxing match in which nobody pulled back and said enough. And nobody clenched. Everybody kept fighting. I’ll tell you I think Trump probably likes the look of it. I’m not sure he’s right. On first view it looks awful and bloody. Circular firing squad. All those cliches. Maybe what we saw was a lot of passion. And maybe that passion is going to get through. But there’s only one candidate who believes he’s going to have the most delegates going into Milwaukee, and we know who it was. He was the guy that said that person should be the winner. Everybody else said tonight I will not have the most delegates. They all made it official. They were not going to give the win to the person with the most delegates. That was so telling tonight. Today it was an acknowledgment that Bernie is the winner, not the winner, the winner so far in this whole fight. And he may be the winner all the way. I think they think so.
