MSNBC’s Chris Matthews Calls Trump’s SOTU ‘Good Stuff’: Regular People Will ‘Like It!’

Minutes after President Donald Trump wrapped up his State of the Union address, MSNBC host Chris Matthews praised the president for giving a speech that “regular people” would like, adding that it was full of “good stuff.”

With the hour-plus speech featuring made-for-TV feel-good moments such as the president offering a single mother a scholarship for her child and surprising a soldier’s wife with her returning husband, Matthews insisted that “the people where I came from will like the speech.”

“I think people will like the speech tonight,” Matthews added. “I think regular people, they’ll see the schmalz, the corniness, but they’ll like it! It’s all good stuff, whatever purpose it had.”
