Not that head-scratching moments on MSNBC’s Hardball aren’t rare or anything, but Tuesday’s installment featured another cringe-inducing split-second by host Chris Matthews as he admitted to The Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin and Huffington Post’s Howard Fineman that President-elect Donald Trump’s anti-war stances in the primary had been “tickling my erogenous zones.”

A more traditional outburst of liberal gush was later in the show when panelists Michelle Bernard hailed President Barack Obama for ending his presidency as it started as the President-elect in 2008 when “the whole world was, you know, in economic turmoil” and he “was calming people down” to which Matthews burst out proclaiming that Obama is “such a gentleman.”
