In 2008, Matthews famously said that he felt a “thrill up his leg” while covering then-Senator Barack Obama. Matthews’ open enthusiasm for the candidate was widely mocked, and contributed to the decision by MSNBC to pull him and Keith Olbermann from anchorage of political events.
Flash forward to 2015, when that famous quote was thrown at the MSNBC host again. “I’m with the Media Research Center, we just want to know; how is your leg?” asked the MRC’s Dan Joseph.
“What leg?” a confused Matthews asked.
“The leg with the thrill–” he began.
Matthews suddenly got it. “Just go to hell. Just leave me alone,” he responded.
