‘This is a shot against meritocracy, I think’

Stunned Chris Matthews: Loser Hillary Won the Debates, Had ‘Best Ad Campaign’ (NewsBusters)

A stunned Chris Matthews struggled to comprehend Hillary Clinton’s loss and the victory of Donald Trump on election night. On MSNBC, Matthews sputtered, “[Clinton] won every debate by all standards. Every debate.... She had the best ad campaign, the best ground game.” 

He whined, “This is a shot against meritocracy, I think. Because she merited everything and the normal way you standardize these things, she did what you’re supposed to do to win and Trump came in around the corner.” 

Reporter Kasie Hunt mourned, “I don't think we should overlook the human element here either.... I mean it's a devastating end.”
