Stop reading now. Just click away. Go watch a video of a kitten or something. Look up a new recipe to try out on Thanksgiving. Do anything except what I just did which is listen to 11 painful minutes of radio host Larry Elder hollering at Chris Matthews. Seriously, this is one of the worst things I’ve ever listened to.
In what some reputable sources are still calling an “interview” despite all evidence to the contrary, Matthews called in to Elder’s radio show to discuss Matthews’ new book Jack Kennedy: Elusive Hero. The conversation lasted about half a second before turning into incomprehensible fighting. I’d quote from it but, since all 11 minutes were basically identical, maybe this interpretation will be more representative:
ELDER: In your book, you wrote “A.” Why didn’t you write “B?”
MATTHEWS: Well, I don’t believe “B” so-
ELDER: WHY DIDN’T YOU WRITE “B?”
MATTHEWS: That’s not my opin-
ELDER: YOU REFUSED TO WRITE “B!”
MATTHEWS: ARE YOU JUST GONNA YELL AT ME? ARE YOU?
ELDER: B! B! B! B! B!
MATTHEWS: I’M GONNA HANG UP!
ELDER: Are you still there?
MATTHEWS: I’m listening.
ELDER: In your book, you wrote “C.” Why didn’t you write “D?”
And so on and so on for 11 awful, awful minutes. By the end, Matthews told Elder that his hatred personified what was tearing the country apart. Elder then responded that, no, your hatred tears the country apart! Or something. Ugh.
Over at the Daily Caller, they’re claiming that Elder “spanked” Matthews which is ridiculous. Even if he had “won” the conversation, it’d be as impressive as winning a Punch Yourself In The Face-Off. Seriously, how can they think that-
IT IS A SPANKING!
Wait, who are you?
HE WAS SPANKED!
What are you doing in my post? I’m trying to-
A SPANKING! A SPANKING! A SPANKING!
YOU’RE A SPANKING!
I HATE YOU!
I HATE YOU!
