    Trump haters would rather see the US fail than see Trump be successful. Think about that! Or are you a #NPC stuck saying orange man bad all day? Groupthink mind control.
    Here is a tip for any with a open mind, look up #CulturalMarxism! Political correctness is not a grassroots natural thing. It's part of a planned way to bring about Marxism in the west. Look up #TheFrankfortSchool also. You will be glad you did, I hope. Colbert is feeding you false Propaganda BS! You like that taste? Turn the idiotbox off and read a book or try listening to ppl you don't agree with some time. I have learned much from ppl I disagreed with at first. Try it, step out of the All Left MSM echo chamber. Dare to consider different points of view. I wish you all well.
    Remember, #LoveTrumpsHate until you write it on a sign and beat ppl at a prayer rally over the head with it! At that point you are not just a hypocrite fool you are a criminal also! Just like the Clinton's and Obama. Say one thing, do the opposite.

    Late night comic shows being used to indoctrinate and push leftist propaganda and work hand in hand with the DNC. The left is now Marxist professors followed by low information indoctrinated victims. I'm a former dem, a classical liberal. It seems Colbert sold out to farleft Clinton Crime Foundation. You know the Clinton Charities fraud scam. Have any Colbert fans heard what was done by #HRC & #BillTheRapist in Haiti? The Haitian people are very poor yet the Clinton cartel stole billions of dollars donated to help the Haitians after the big earthquake. One Haitian man from the Haiti government was found dead two days before he was to testify against the Clintons. Add another name to the Clinton body count list I guess. My hope is that #Obamagate will be exposed so that the low information #AltLeft will even be able to understand. Colbert is a tool to keep you uninformed.

    Kim will NEVER give up his nukes (what he just called is cherished sword). Why would he? It's his only protection. Protection against the rest of Asia, and most importantly, protection against the United States. Kim isn't stupid, he knows this. What they (NK & SK) ended up doing is conning Donald Trump, and I am very glad they did. Donald Trump was instigating nuclear war, or should I say nuclear extermination of the human race. He was playing chicken with the entire world. And it isn't his to play chicken with. Both North and South Korea knew they had to save face with their people, so North Korea could not back down, but they came up with the Panmunjom Agreement. The agreement between North Korea and South Korea, the United States had absolutely nothing to do with negotiating the agreement, Donald Trump didn't even come down to Korea for me until months later (where the promise was just reiterated - he did nothing, except agree to meet). In that agreement, they agree to work towards denuclearization. I don't think I could think of a more vague promise. They could denuclearize in 400,000 years, and they would still have kept their promise. Actually, they don't even have to denuclearize to keep their promise (you can work toward denuclearization, and then stop). Not that I think Kim really cares about keeping his promises, but they'd be safe either way. They conned Donald Trump so he would stop instigating nuclear war. But it was entirely the two leaders of North Korea and South Korea that did this. Donald Trump was nothing but an instigator and then a pawn. SMH. And after they met, they realized the key with Donald Trump: buy things from him and be nice PERSONALLY to him (especially flattery for that fragile ego), and you can do whatever you want - you can even plan and carry out the torture and murder of a US resident (a journalist working for a US paper, representing freedom of speech), or interfere with US elections, and hack their DOH and States . . . ALL GOOD! Trump will even help whitewash the murder, and blame the USA for Russia's interference . . . ALL GOOD!
    Why weren't there MASSIVE petitions about the Russian interference? Instead, about 40% of the country is calling the INVESTIGATION a witch hunt???????
    Congress does a bullshit investigation, where they didn't subpoena ONE RECORD!?! Not ONE PHONE BILL (it's ALL about conspiracy, and they didn't track communications??????)! Not ONE FINANCIAL RECORD!!!! Wow!
    "Hey, Hey,
    Ho, ho,
    Congress and the Senate have got to go!
    Hey, Hey,
    Ho, ho,
    Such horrible corruption, we all say NO!"

    "Everyone in the world knows we're the best country in the world . . . It's a fact." NOT EVEN CLOSE TO A FACT. You are a huge Market, that is why everyone wants to come to the table. You also have important public push power, although that has been steadily decreasing over the years. Your GDP was the reason everybody wanted to be invited to the table. Once Upon a Time, about 30 years ago, you used to control over 50% of the world's economy. Now it is less than half of that, down to about 24%, but still the biggest independent country (GDP), with China following close behind.
    Wow, the fucking arrogance. Nobody except Americans thinks you are the best country in the world. You have people dying because they don't have healthcare for god sakes. You expect mothers to immediately get off the birthing bed and go back to work! There are third world countries that give their citizens more than you do! No, you are not even close to the best country in the world. Your education system is horrible and about to get horrendously worse. And half of your population is absolutely ignorant. Trump, who clearly does not understand trade, goes around telling his country a bunch of bullshit, and they blindly believe it. No matter what he says, even when he disproves himself, almost half of them still blindly believe it. It's truly mind-boggling. Oh, and I forgot to mention the fact that you have more of your citizens in prison than any other country in the world. So... You don't offer basic human rights that other third world countries AND DICTATORSHIPS (like NK & Russia) even offer, like free healthcare for all your citizens, paid maternity leave, and old age pension, which you DO currently offer (the last one), but Mitch McConnell has made it clear that future old age pension is on The Chopping Block, and you jail your people more than any other country in the world, including dictatorships, and your education is horrendous (about to get 1000x worse) and consistently getting their budgets cut. But sure... Greatest country in the world!

    Only Americans believe the US has moral superiority. That's a joke on epic proportions. How many times has the United States just removed a democratically elected leader of the country, only to place a dictator that would favor the United States in its place? And those dictators were not nice to the people of those countries. Not to mention, that the United States has never invaded a country to help the people of that country (I can't BELIEVE many Americans believe that; they won't even help their own citizens, for God's sake). The only time the United States invades any country, is if it benefits the United States.

    Yes, sure. What did he say? The moral backbone??? PLEASE!!! tvclip.biz/video/mJLwqBfrcu8/video.html
    tvclip.biz/video/KCiCryzHwnQ/video.html - There are people in this documentary that should be killed, slowly. They are heartless monsters.
    tvclip.biz/video/osW9U36KkDs/video.html
    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/My_Lai_Massacre
    www.pri.org/stories/2012-03-12/5-major-atrocities-us-military-history
    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.

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.

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.

      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.

      This is the United States of America. Every individual has the constitutionally protected right to question Trump or any other leader. You questioned Obama did you not? If one leader is held beyond question, they all are.
      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.
      All men are created equal, even presidents.

    America is a polarizing place. So full of wonderful things, people, and places. however, i think that there are equal depths to this Country... there are things here as bad as the good things are good. its a huge tossup. there is no way to ultimately lay out a pro/con list for whos best of the best? a country that values its people, that values the planet, that values its neighbors... they can all be slated for the "best" country in the world.

      What are you talking about? It has been brought up many times liberal academics and liberal media. But Trump isn't meeting with Fidel Castro and Fidel Castro didn't have nuclear weapons he has no intention of giving up.

    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.

    China is the one that benefits the most if we pull out of the region. They and Russia want this, so Putin pushed for it for China, and Trump agreed to it with Kim. China is the only country that has a government/regime that has state-sanctioned forced live organ harvesting of the people they rule over.

    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.

    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.

  • Nx Doyle

    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.
