<p>Fresh off accusing Ted Cruz of being a political bigamist, MSNBC&rsquo;s<em> Hardball </em>host Chris Matthews stated Thursday night that Cruz has put on a <strong>&ldquo;Baghdad Bob performance this week&rdquo;</strong> for failing to concede the Republican presidential nomination to Donald Trump while also displaying<strong> &ldquo;political narcissism&rdquo; </strong>in responding to former Speaker John Boehner&rsquo;s Lucifer analogy.</p>

<p>Leading into Matthews linking Cruz to an infamous Saddam Hussein spokesman, former RNC chair Michael Steele lectured viewers that the campaign <strong>&ldquo;was over for awhile now in many respects because Trump was able to establish momentum that no one else could break.&rdquo;</strong></p>
