Chris Matthews and Pat Buchanan get into it during a segment of Hardball. The xenophobic Buchanan cries that Obama is the affirmative action candidate after he defends Donald Trumps Birtherism and actually claims that Obama's birth certificate is a big issue now. WTF? Only for Republican registered voters who are trying to ride the crazy train. To that end it is, and Pat is only conducting the train. Donald Trump keeps putting out insane ideas and Buchanan really gets into them. Here's a taste of his idiocy.

Buchanan: Why is it that the national press corp, when Donald Trump is out there supporting the people's right to know, you guys are all supporting the President's right to conceal.

I think he went to those schools, I think the wheels were greased and I think he's affirmative action all the way.

Matthews: Greased by whom?

Buchanan: I think he's affirmative action all the way.

Where did Obama come from? How did he end up in Harvard?

"You're a journalist, Chris, don't you want to see his grades?"

Pat must be really spooked by the Republican voters if he's going full-on Birther apologist for Trump.
