Chris Matthews was baffled Monday night that President Trump had not yet decided to abandon Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh based on the recent sexual assault allegation against him. During a segment on Hardball, the MSNBC host insisted that Kavanaugh must be guilty and that the nomination was “cooked,” concluding that the President’s refusal to rescind that nomination suggested he was “incapable of facing reality.”

Matthews repeatedly demanded that Trump “face the political reality” that Kavanaugh’s nomination would be done in by the allegations: “Bob Woodward says in his book [Trump is] incapable of facing reality,” he reasoned. “The reality, as I see it right now, probably, this nomination is cooked.”
