Former MSNBC host Chris Matthews got attacked on social media after praising President Trump’s response to the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
According to The Daily Wire:
Former MSNBC host Chris Matthews took a beating on social media Monday when leftists scolded him for daring to praise Trump for his classy and all-American response to Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death last Friday.
“Trump is right to show respect for RBG. True presidential behavior. Far too rare,” Matthews tweeted.

On Friday night, after learning news of Ginsburg’s death, the president said he was “sad” to hear of her passing and praised her life accomplishments.
“She led an amazing life,” Trump said. “What else can you say? She was an amazing woman. Whether you agreed or not, she was an amazing woman who led an amazing life. I am sad to hear that.”
The left responded:
Lol. Whew these journalists are so desperate to declare “presidential behavior”.
Go away, Mr. Matthews. https://t.co/zGXN1iAqMR

Republicans have vowed to fill Ginsburg’s seat before the election and support is building for it. Just today Senator Mitt Romney offered his support for confirming a Trump nominated justice. [READ MORE: Romney Makes Decision on Holding Vote on Trump’s Nominee]
