<p>Amidst the discussion on MSNBC&rsquo;s <em>Hardball</em> late Tuesday concerning President-elect Donald Trump&rsquo;s selection of ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson to lead the State Department, host Chris Matthews was apoplectic at the notion that a Trump administration would<strong> &ldquo;desecrate&rdquo; </strong>Jerusalem by moving the U.S. embassy there from Tel Aviv.&nbsp;</p>

<p>Matthews emphasized that such a move could single-handedly cause the entire Middle East to<strong> &ldquo;blow up&rdquo;</strong> as well as anger Muslims by<strong> &ldquo;desecrat[ing]&rdquo; </strong>the holy sites for both Jewish and Muslim people.&nbsp;</p>
