WATCH: Chris Matthews Confuses Lindsey Graham’s Opponent With Tim Scott

For being on a network that is supposed to be “woke” on racial issues, Chris Matthews really embarrassed himself.

While speaking to Lindsay Graham’s Democrat South Carolina opponent Jamie Harrison, Matthews cut to a clip of Graham standing next to Republican Senator Tim Scott

“Jaime, I see you standing next to the guy you’re going to beat right there, maybe, maybe, Lindsey Graham,” Matthews said.

“That’s Tim Scott,” Harrison said.

“Jaime?” Matthews said.

“Tim Scott,” another guest said.

“Who’s that?” a confused Matthews said.

“That’s Tim Scott,” another guest said causing Harrison to laugh.

“I’m sorry?” an increasingly confused Matthews said.

“Oh, the other Senator, Tim Scott. What am I saying?” a now lucid Matthews said.

“Big mistake. Mistaken identity, sir. I’m sorry,” he continued.


The episode was reminiscent of when Hillary joked “I know they all look alike” after the moderator got Cory Booker and Eric Holder confused.
