Matthews to Bachmann: 'Are You Hypnotized?' Bachmann Zings: Have You Lost Your Leg Thrills?


[See NewsBusters for more.] As tough as journalists are on Donald Trump, it’s hard to believe they ever loved a president as much as Barack Obama. But it’s now been a full decade since Chris Matthews announced his famous “thrill” up the leg. Provoked by Obama’s speeches during the 2008 Democratic primaries, the MSNBC host prompted ten years of mockery for the fawning comment. It wasn’t long before the 2008 version was roundly mocked. On November 2, 2010, as Republicans were swamping Democrats in the midterms, Michele Bachmann appeared on Hardball. Matthews insulted the then-Congresswoman to her face, asking if she was “hypnotized” or in a “trance.” Bachmann fired back.
