MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews stumbled upon a thing called reason on Thursday night as he expressed stiff reservations over how Bernie Sanders and the far left argue that health care should be made right alongside, say, freedom of speech.

Discussing what concessions Hillary Clinton should make to Sanders in order for him to endorse her and prevent a messy Democratic National Convention, Matthews predicted: “He's not going to get all this social stuff that he wants.
