Chris Matthews: Paul Ryan Saying "Urban Vote" Is Racist
On MSNBC's "Hardball" today, host Chris Matthews said Paul Ryan attributing the urban vote to President Obama's victory is "more of this dog whistle crap."
"This guy, Paul Ryan, who I don't think is ready for prime time yet, by any means, is talking about the 'urban' vote. You know they won, the other side, because they got the most votes, because they won fair and square which is the first thing Ryan said. Why did he have to go step on his own headline, they won fair and square by saying, 'Oh it was the black vote.' Basically, that's what he said," Matthews later added.
