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 a time with Trump’s White House the past few days, going after the president for general “BS” and even potential “perjury“.
