Watch MSNBC’s Matthews spout off; OFFENDED Chris Christie called ISIS ‘animals’

MSNBC “Hardball” host Chris Matthews was offended that New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie referred Islamic State terrorists as “animals.”

“Republicans now say it’s okay to hate Muslims,” he said to guest David Corn of Mother Jones magazine Monday.

“I mean, when you hear ‘carpet bombing,’ there’s no way to hear that from Cruz without knowing a lot of regular people that just happen to live in those geographical areas will die because you’re carpet bombing,” he argued.

Carpet bombing was employed in World War II and the Vietnam War. In fact, it was the sustained bombing over North Vietnam the led Hanoi to the Paris Peace Accord.

“And also, ‘animals’? I mean, call them what they are, bad people. But what’s this ‘animal’ thing that Christie’s throwing around?” Matthews complained.

What would Matthews prefer to call terrorists who brutally murder children, behead journalists, crucify Christians, drown and burn alive their enemies and hang gays? The “honorable gentlemen from the caliphate” perhaps?

Matthews’ statement made for a lot of head-scratching on social media.
