On Tuesday night, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews played the role of charmer in creepily professing how attractive he found new author, friend, guest, and Democratic Senator Barbara Boxer (Calif.) that Matthews repeatedly told the audience she “look great” and expressed concern about the physical toll of traveling between California and Washington for work. 

Right off the bat, Matthews rehashed Boxer’s congressional career in both chambers and upon mentioning her book title The Art of Tough: Fearlessly Facing Politics and Life, Matthews proclaimed: “Thank you so much. Senator, you look great by the way if I'm allowed to say that. Unbelievable. Four terms.”
