On this evening’s Hardball, Matthews, speaking to “Fire and Fury” author Michael Wolff, said:
“I really mean this, when I was reading your book . . . the mood in yours is a different sense, it’s a scary sense. It reminds me of that Twilight [Zone] episode, way back in the 60s, where there’s this kid with auto-kinetic powers.
"Ferocious kid with no mental or emotional development, who can kill anybody he wanted to, destroy their lives terrifically, and everybody just pandered to him, pacified him. It’s like there’s an eight-year-old in that West Wing, and everybody around him is scared to death he’ll do something really destructive if they don’t please him that moment.”
