Matthews rant: ‘At least in the old days they were honest’ about being racist


Not letting live coverage of the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington go to waste, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews used the opportunity to rant about President Obama’s racist critics.

Matthews explained that in 1939, Marian Anderson was prohibited from singing ‘My Country ‘Tis of Thee’ at Constitution Hall because she was black.

“At least they were honest back then,” Matthews said. “Today in American politics you have people like Donald Trump who hangs around with Mitt Romney talking about the president being an illegal immigrant. Basically of being a con artist on the street corner.”

Matthews said people have been talking impeachment, like U.S. Sens. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., and Ted Cruz, R-Texas, but they never say their problem with Obama is that he’s black.

“At least the Daughters of the American Revolution knew what they were saying and they said it out loud,” he said. “He’s black, she’s black, she can’t sing here.”

“At least in the old days they were honest about it. Today, they’re not.”
