Chris Matthews: Hillary Will Use White House Like “Motel 6”

Discussing Hillary and Bill Clinton's extensive history of squeezing money out of donors in exchange for favors, Matthews deviated from the party line he typically toes and opined that they would continue doing so should they return to the White House. This contrasted starkly with guest Howard Fineman's assessment of the matter, who pathetically tried to minimize the Clintons' lust for money:

“‘None of it specifically illegal, but if you look at the totality of it, it looks like they’ve spent their whole lives searching for cash, and using power to get it, to get more money, to get more power, to get more money. And they have not said they’re going to shut down The Clinton Foundation if Hillary becomes president. What they’ve said is, they will no longer take any foreign donations.'

Matthews ended the segment by saying, ‘You know what I think? I’m going to be more judgmental than Beth who’s a straight reporter. I’ll make a judgment. Every time I watch a politician engage in a certain pattern of behavior before they go to the White House, they continue to engage in that pattern afterwards. People don’t change because we swear them into the White House. They become that person big-time. And the Clintons were raising money like this hand over hand, hand over fist, back in 1996, using—we called it Motel 6. They were hoarding them in, pulling them in by train loads of contributors and then letting them sit in the Lincoln bedroom for a while and charging them by the hour. You can still vote for Hillary Clinton, but remember, you’re getting this as part of the package, because that’s been their pattern.'”
