    When people say "America is the greatest country in the world and everyone knows that" I always picture them alone standing in a room full of mirrors with their images just blabbing back at them whatever they shout.

    I never realized that Chris seems to have the clarity of thought and eloquence of a 9th grader, closer to a 7th grader when he's trying to be funny and is laughing that creepy fake laugh. Hell he was completely nonsensical for the first 3 minutes of the segment.
    Sorry, I just don't see his talent as an interviewer and certainly not as a interviewee here.

    Yes, sure. What did he say? The moral backbone??? PLEASE!!! - There are people in this documentary that should be killed, slowly. They are heartless monsters.
    Unlike the Nazis, who the Americans rushed to judge & execute (and the Nazis SHOULD have been executed), these monsters (the ones in My Lai - I actually have to specify), murderers & rapists of CHILDREN, murderers of BABIES (BABIES!!!!!) had ABSOLUTELY NO PUNISHMENT (a little house arrest for one). The pictures from this horrific massacre will haunt me forever. The moral backbone???????? PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!! (And this was only ONE of the many massacres in that war, and other wars, done by Americans - only ONE.) Even today, I see Americans defend the actions of the murderers at My Lai, the rapings and slitting open of girl's vaginas, the scalping, the removing of tongues, the murder of little babies. I know, without a doubt, that I would do whatever it took to defend a baby or a toddler (any child). I DO know that; and there is no excuse for these disgusting actions, where the American People SUPPORTED THESE MURDERERS after the massacre!!!!! SUPPORTED THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1 I've seen the pictures, and I'm beyond disgusted. Keep believing the propaganda lies of the US (we're great, we're the best . . .). I know better. It's not surprising that this president is successfully pulling off such a shocking propaganda campaign.
    And BTW, as I've learned about how Americans react/deter from the facts, PLEASE DO NOT jump to, "Oh yeah? Well, what about the massacres by (fill in another country)?" I've yet to see a murder defence where they actually said, "Well, yes, we killed 5 children, but I can tell you about a murderer who killed 10!" Good for you. And . . .? You're point???? We are talking about YOU and how your BS comments about being morally superior are laughable. The American people supported them!!!!!!! AFTER hearing about what these murderers did!!!!!! One of the murderers actually had the gall to say they did the morally right thing. As I look at the pictures of slaughtered babies, and hear the stories of raping and burning children, and more (!) all I can do, is try to decide if I want to cry, vomit, or both.
    [Sorry if I made mistakes; I can't look this one over.]

    FYI - ONLY AMERICANS (of the free world) think that the United States is the greatest country of the world. It IS NOT a fact. Not even close (there is that absolute arrogance and lack of humility, that makes other countries hate you - especially since it isn't true). That is a lie you tell each other, like the idea that you guys are an island that doesn't need anyone, when you GREATLY rely on imports (and exports). Trump and his supporters don't get that - you will (lol). This is a country that lets their own people die because they can't afford Health Care. A country that intentionally keeps poor people poor, and rich people rich, because they're scared of socialism. Most of them don't know the difference between socialism & communism, and even worse, they don't realize they already HAVE socialism (SMH), only to a different degree. The ONLY members of the free world that think the US is the greatest country in the world, is the United States - that's it. The reasons some people grew up wanting to go to the United States is because they believed the lie; the same lie they tell themselves (we're the best, we're totally free, everyone is treated fair, anyone can become anything here . . .). Universal health care is free in so many countries. Americans are arrogant as Hell (this guy & Trump are the PERFECT examples), what's worse is it's tied to ignorance (their education system is horrible). Then there's the EXTREME violence in the United States, the extreme racism, and the seething hatred all Americans have for each other for various reasons (Rep/Democrat, race, religion). And WTF is he talking about moral superiority??? Are you kidding me???? There's a number of countries that would STRONGLY disagree with you for very good reason. What a joke. In Canada, if you are born poor, you TRULY have the opportunity to become anything. We don't have the slums you see in the United States. I actually feel uncomfortable being next to the States (like a dangerous neighbor). And he really thinks Canadians like Americans? I can't speak for all Canadians, but although we are fine with some (the ones that aren't arrogant braggarts that come to Canada and think they can do anything they want because "I'm an American" - And?), most Canadians (esp. ones that were born here) are not fans, overall, with Americans. Not at all.

    clarification... *only* the USA and people from terrible places see the US as the "greatest" country. No one else does. Canadians think the US is great as a partner and ally but we prefer our freedom to whatever the fuck the US has. No healthcare, no agreement bw states. It is so close to civil war in so many ways.... gun violence on one hand and the insane idea of "crisis actors" on the other. No freedom or guarantee of rights for marginalized groups. No compassion for less fortunate people. Totally nutso conspiracy groups everywhere and gee the kkk... the US has some great aspects but the greatest country? That is a total joke... only believed by the uneducated, ignorant or desperate. I want to do a year traveling in my van but wont until I find a solution for the winter months that doesn't include being in the US at ALL. I lived there... west and east coasts. Most folks are nice but utterly clueless about the world. It's an ok place... but far from the greatest ever.Please.

    Firstly, the president of USA is not he leader of the Free world. Nice country but it has lost it's way, it's people are killing each other at a rate of knots. I would not want to live there at all, no health care, rich getting richer and poor getting poorer. African American people and minorities still getting killed by police members just for looking the wrong way. Yuck. Horrible place. However, Chris Mathews spoke well. I have never heard him speak and thought what he said was poignant.

    Good to see comments like by kirinphoebe1 that point out America is a bully in the world, not a force for democracy. The USA is a criminal enterprise, an evil empire, that has wrongfully bombed more than 30 countries since the second World War and killed more than 30 million people. We need to wake up as a people and replace our corrupt votes for sale sham democracy with a government truly of, for, and by the people. We need to begin creating a government in waiting to peacefully replace the mess.

    Ugh! I was growing pretty annoyed at this self understanding of a lot of US americans as being the leaders of the free world that anyone would do oh so well to be granted the opportunity to bow down to before this, but Matthews makes my patience run dry.
    Honecker may have wanted to meet the POTUS, but guess what? That was 28 years, a Bush, Clinton, Bush and now aTrump presidency ago.
    The US behaves like a bully on a school yard. Grow up, show some respect or at least common decency towards others (as well as your own people), and maybe you'll be shown the same respect in return. Until then, Mr. Matthews, kindly f*** off.

    Best country in the world? On what could you possibly base a candy cane dream of that on. Trump has taken the U.S. from a valuable ally, to an adversary. It's such a shame. And yes, Chris, you do need troops. The entire U.S. economy is built on the war machine. When an economic "shot in the arm" is needed, create a war. So see? Your president is perfect for the job. How does that make you feel?

      The weather is like a toilet here.. It rains icy cold acid drizzle nearly every day and night.. Our food crops are failing.. Your pollution is damaging everything here too.. and like your nation, cannibalism is on the rise.. Our weather control system isn't quite complete.. How many baked human infants do your politicians and actors consume annually..? Is there a shortage of babies in America..? How many of you eat a baked human baby as the cristmus turkey..? Is Santa still alive there..? How's Elvis doing..?
      Things here are on the rise pleasurable now, since women's breasts and nipples are now legal to be seen in public places nationwide.. Everywhere one goes there be amazingly huge nakeed woman breasts showing on the chests of the world's most beautiful half nakeed women.. I am having great difficulty in keeping the erection down when in public.. Does your erection still function in all that deadly pollution..?
      Why do you ask..? How is the weather in the European detention colonies..?
      How are things going in your life-stifling cristinsanity nation..?
      Petrol here is still 28 to 37-cents per gallon.. Is your gas still over 5-dollars per gallon..? Is your FBI, CIA, DEA, NSA, and such, still trying to coup the government, and enslave the people for sex toys, slaves, and veal..?
      Is Bush's killer vaccine program still actively victimizing and destroying innocent children's brains and minds to convert them into a subspecies cattle-class vampire and zombie self-breeding fodder..?
      I see you have several volcanoes threatening to blow-up all along the west coast.. Are you prepared for such an extreme disaster..? I wager California will see a lot of lava flowing, like is happening in Hawaii..
      Do you think Hawaii will survive that mess..? My experts tell me that soon the Hawaiian Islands will be airborne rock and dust, and half of it submerged in a newly formed Pacific trench.. How long can Hawaiians tread boiling-water..? Do you folks have Brown's reasoning for destroying California.. for turning the 'golden state' into the toilet state, into a third world entity..? Does he want California all for himself only..? Is it a major serious greed item, insanity based..? Does America have a list of how many politicians are actually criminally-insane..? Hows the drug problem there..? Are young school children still ingesting dangerous hard drugs coast to coast..? I see in your third rate media concerns many children below the age of 12 are showing cocaino eyes.. Do your schools and churches provide cocaino for America's preadolescence children..?
      Will your California ever be forced to join the nation's unity, and abide by the nation's laws..? Why hasn't the American government nuked Brown and his hoard of vampires..?
      When will your criminal CNN have its broadcasting permit revoked, and all your active traitors be disposed of in Cuba, or in fiery mass-graves..? Why does your government allow your media to insult and damage your government..? If they did that here, we would have them all sent to the firing squad, and fed to the hogs at the rail-yard holding pens in a Moscow minute...
      Are you ready for war there..? Soon America will be our continental cornfield.. How many nukes do you think it will take to turn America into a coast to coast corn field..?
      Does America tax its citizens for breathing..?
      Is it true that America has squads of happiness police..? Is happiness illegal in America..? Do you people still urinate and defecate in the streets in public..?
      Are half consumed corpses still being found in city lanes and alleys in mornings..?
      Are Clinton and Soros still running America..?

    • SuperGamer87
      SuperGamer87 3 months ago

      Oh, and as a black America of English and native Creek ancestry, I can tell you--America's never been nor is the greatest nation in the world.

      The strongest, sure. The richest, sure. The place I personally would rather be, than anywhere else, sure. But American history isn't so polished, for someone like myself.

      Only Americans of European descent tend to revel in how "great" and "free" America has been and is, because they've always seen the best of such liberties and privileges.

      Now, that doesn't mean America doesn't have its advantages (and we do have advantages), but it also doesn't mean America's always been responsible with those advantages, either.

      America's the most privileged country in the world. We shouldn't confuse that as the "greatest." "Greatest" implies that we've been the ideal model for the world--and "we" (if such a true "we" ever existed about ever-divided America) simply haven't.

      We can disagree about the issues and we can disagree with our leaders. But what is most important is that we both agree that we both have the freedom to disagree with whoever is in power.

    It's unfortunate the United States continued to claim it's being the "greatest country in the world, unfortunately, its a little too much like those profiles on Instagram of individuals who claim to be the "hottest, best looking" people on the net. But individuals who make claims of themselves using selective adjectives too often look as if they are trying too hard. Suggesting one is better than another is entirely subjective, what one thinks over another will always be very different, or subjective. Currently, there are very few around the world who might be willing to suggest the United States could be the "best" in the world, the nation has very little to offer that might motivate anyone think it is a country that has more to offer over anyone else. Canada has universal health care, no one in the country to the North must sell their home to pay for their illness or to stay alive. Canada has had gay rights and same-sex marriage for in excess of a decade, why is the United States still discussing it. Canada also offers its citizens paternal leave for both mothers and fathers to choose between 6 months and 1 year off when they have a child. Very little in the United States currently looks to be better than what Canada continues to offer its citizens. Claiming to be better than anyone else only looks to be trying too hard due to a considerable problemwith being insecure.

    Is America the greatest country in the world?I think that's an excellently debatable and illuminating question that all Americans with a conscience should ponder often.For my two cents,for NOW we are the lone superpower,militarily,economically and culturally.But morally?Try this thought experiment:if Trump/Putin succeed in hastening the decline of U.S. hegemony,making Russia and China great again,do you think they will care one whit about using their might to strong-arm other countries on Human Rights and Democracy?

    When asked why he supported Kim Jong Un, Trump said “The only reason I support him is so that our country doesn’t get destroyed by nuclear war”. It’s a shame that it would be considered an accomplishment if Obama had done it, but NO, it was Trump, so the left has to criticize him. How pathetic.

    Chris Matthews is delusional, the USA is a partial democracy at best and is certainly NOT the greatest country in the world. Am not convinced that even he believes that.

    I live in a country that has compulsory voting. Sometimes it's a pain but I would NEVER not do it. I don't think Americans realise how important it is to vote, not just talk. Just because you don't like a candidate doesn't mean you are dismissed from making your contribution to the country. If everyone who hated Trump voted for Hillary, she would be in power. Instead, they didn't vote at all, and were then shocked at the outcome! You have NO RIGHT to abstain from voting if you are going to get Republicans out.

      StephBer1 Makes no difference how people vote, their votes do not elect the president. The Electoral College elects the president, not the people.
      Hillary received almost 3 million more votes than Trump, but the Electoral College elected Trump president.
      George W Bush was also elected president by the Electoral College, although he lost the vote of the people to Democrat Al Gore, who received 540,000 more votes than him.

    I posted a longer comment, but the tl;dr is: The greatness of a country transcends quantitative metrics, so the claim "America is the greatest nation ever" cannot be a fact.
    More importantly, the entire premise of a "greatest nation ever" is fundamentally flawed. You don't need to look at the planet from space to understand how selfish, arrogant and fatuous that claim is. But knowing where you are in relation to the rest of the observable universe is very helpful in determining the veracity of a bloviating trombone like Chris Matthews.

  • Nx Doyle

    To say a country is the greatest ever is one thing. To call that statement a fact beggars belief. Matthews clearly is of the view that saying things in a strident, declarative manner makes them 'more true'.
    Matthews' exceptionalism is pretty fucking vapid. The entire premise of "greatest nation" is flawed. We live on a planet, one species among millions. We're the only species that operates on the basis of controlling it, rather than communing with it. Worse, we are the only species that _can_ commune with it but we choose not to.
    To bring it back from hippie-type talk and put Matthews' claims in historical geo-political context, America as "The Great Experiment" drew its influence from Britain and France, an undoubtedly noble goal to safeguard against the tyranny of divine rule and for individual rights and freedoms.
    Matthews glibly holds up America in comparison to the histories of all other nations and concludes, with all the hubris of a man who thinks such notions are self-evident and require no examination, that America is the greatest and was greatest from day one.
    If you allow the clearly misguided, nonsensical notion of a 'best' or 'greatest' nation, you have to open that claim to scrutiny. And the first step in that process is to assess what is quantifiable. On a purely quantifiable scale, America does not come out on top. The response to that from people like Matthews is to disregard the quantitative results on the basis that it is an inadequate metric, that the essence of a nation cannot be quantified. And that's fine, but in ceding that there is no metric by which we can measure 'greatness', you can't call "x is the greatest nation ever" a fact. It's a horseshit claim by a fatuous tit.

    Chris Matthews acted like a weirdo in this interview, especially in the first minute. Awkwardly attempted to sound funny. Really weird and not funny at all. I say this as a person who also does not support Trump. But Matthews is a serious weirdo.

    He was trying so hard to get an applause by repeating "greatest country in the world". Are we really still using this infantile phrase in 2018? He clearly doesn't go to other countries much.

    "Everybody know, even the bad guys know we're the best country" is a load of barely specious horseshit. Everybody knows that America is the most _powerful_ country and as a result knows on which side their bread is buttered.
