    Chris Matthews Explodes At Reince Priebus Over 'Race Card'

    Chris Matthews exploded at Reince Priebus on Monday's "Morning Joe," tearing into the Republican National Committee chairman and accusing his party of playing the race card.
    The MSNBC host was livid over Mitt Romney's recent birth certificate joke, and false claims that Obama ended work requirements for welfare.
    "That cheap shot ... was awful," Matthews said, referring to the joke. "It is an embarrassment to your party to play that card ... you are playing that ethnic card there." As Priebus apparently laughed and co-host Joe Scarborough tried to get a word in, Matthews continued, "you can sit there and giggle about it, but the fact is your party is playing that card."
    "You think Mitt Romney's playing the race card?" Scarborough asked.
    "There's no doubt he did," Matthews said. Co-host Mika Brzezinski speculated that Romney may have said what he said because he is an "awkward joker."
    Priebus said Matthews was just trying to "push his brand" with his "monologue."
    "it just seems funny that the first joke he ever told in his life was about Obama's birth certificate," Matthews said.

    Chris Matthews acted like a moron.

    There is nothing in Romney's history to suggest the man is even remotely racist. There is an abundance of history that shows Romney puts his foot in his mouth. Romney made a poor joke, it wasnt poor because of the content but because it gave the Obama campaign ammunition.

    Of all the things to get riled up about in this election, Matthews choose something idiotic.
