#PopcornMoment: Who Knew Chris Matthews Had Issues With Jerusalem?

MSNBC host Chris Matthews said “crazy” evangelical Christians in the South are uninformed about President Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel because they have “mythical beliefs” about the ancient city.

“Don’t think this isn’t related to Alabama next week,” Matthews said Wednesday on “Morning Joe,” referring to the Alabama Senate race. “It is related, because it’s the Christian evangelicals down there with their crazy ideas about Israel, which is, I don’t know, mythical. They don’t understand the situation over there and how tricky it is ethnically and tribally. They don’t care, because it’s a religious belief. Trump’s playing to that this week. You watch him.”
