Speaking on ‘America Now’ Friday night, host Buck Sexton slammed MSNBC host Chris Matthews for his unhinged, uninformed rant over the Second Amendment, saying it was time for the liberal anchor to “go play golf and focus on your family.”
Buck called-out Matthews over his anti-gun tirade earlier last week, bizarrely suggesting that Second Amendment supporters wanted “tanks” and “bazookas,” and mocking those who believe human rights don’t stem from government.
“Chris Matthews, this guy gets paid millions of dollars to be a ‘journalist.’ Who thinks this is a good idea? Is it performance art?” asked Buck. “That’s right Chris Matthews. Rights do not come from government; the founders were very clear on this. Rights pre-date, pre-exist government, they’re apart from government. They come from our creator. We are endowed by our creator with unalienable rights.”
“I don’t know what to say about Chris Matthews other than he’s taken seriously by Democrats still. He’s someone they will listen to and treat with reverence,” he added. “It’s amazing to me that [network executives] never tell them, ‘You know what, you’ve made millions and millions of dollars. Maybe it’s time for you to play golf, focus on your family, and write a memoir.’”
“This is a specific problem with media talents, that they never think that it’s time to be done,” Sexton said. “The ratings are declining, they’re not what they used to be, and you have these people… who were very lucky. They were in the profession of TV journalism in its golden age. I don’t think it’s ever going to be what it was back in the 70s, 80s, 90s, and early 2000s.”
“The way people consumer information is changing, and who they get it from is changing. This notion that you’re just ‘the anchor’ who gets to be paid unimaginable amounts of money to do something a thousand-other people can do just as well; that’s going away,” he added.
