WATCH: Chris Matthews Laments “There’s so many things moving in Trump’s direction”

While discussing impeachment and the 2020 election prospects for Democrats, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews admitted that a 20,000 supporters in South Jersey Trump rally were an “incredible show” and lamented that “there’s so many things moving in Trump’s direction.”

Chris Matthews:

Bernie’s rising. Bernie’s gonna do very well. I’ve been saying this for two weeks. He’s gonna win the first couple. He’s rising. That’s telling the Republicans they’ve got a good shot at re-electing this president whether they like him or not. They’re facing a future of hell if they go to war with Trump right now.

20,000 people in South Jersey, an incredible show last night. I’ve talked to somebody about Pennsylvania who knows a lot about Pennsylvania … registration is going through the roof up there with Republicans and there’s issues like fracking, which will kill for at least two of the Democratic candidates up there.

There’s so many things moving in Trump’s direction — the latest Real Clear Politics numbers on him are moving up. I don’t know why exactly, but there’s something that makes people — if I’m a Republican and I’m saying, ‘Damn it, there’s only one party. It’s called the Trump Party and I’ve got to live there.
