CHRIS MATTHEWS: “The good thing going for Cory Booker, if he’s the candidate, Steve, is that we don’t have any African Americans in the United States Senate, which I think is a disgrace. You know, it’s one of the reasons I voted for my friend Michael Steele when he ran because I think we ought to have some. It’s absurd in this country, it’s absurd, Steve.”
Anyone spot the glaring problem with that statement? I guess Matthews never heard of Senator Tim Scott? To be fair Matthews catches his mistake, but what about the overtly racist comment he makes? Admitting he votes based on skin color? What about judging on character and not color?
