Critic labels NYT editor ‘female version of Chris Matthews’ after saying Biden gave her ‘chills’

As the results from the 2008 presidential election came in, MSNBC host Chris Matthews earned widespread criticism for claiming that Democratic nominee Barack Obama’s rhetoric gave him “thrills” that ran up his leg.

In anticipation of President Joe Biden’s inauguration this week, an editor for The New York Times brought back memories of that remark among some pundits by declaring that the events of the day gave her “chills.”

“This thrill going up my leg”

“Biden landing at Joint Base Andrews now,” wrote Lauren Wolfe in a now-deleted tweet. “I have chills.”

Amy Kremer, a one-time surrogate for former President Donald Trump, did not pass up the opportunity to lambast Wolf as the “female version of Chris Matthews.”

In his on-air remarks to colleague Keith Olbermann in 2008, Matthews said: “The feeling that most people get when they hear a Barack Obama speech — I felt this thrill going up my leg.”

“Pettiness of the Trump admin”

Not only did Wolf express her adoration of Biden, but she also took aim at the outgoing president.

“The pettiness of the Trump admin not sending a military plane to bring [Biden] to D.C. as is tradition is mortifying,” she asserted.

Of course, Fox News noted that Biden declined the offer of a military plane and opted instead to fly to the capital via private plane.

“So that we all could share it”

Wolfe is not the only media figure to publicly gush over the concept of a new commander in chief. Eddie Glaude, a professor at Princeton University, appeared to compare Biden to God during an MSNBC appearance on Tuesday evening.

Newsbusters published a clip in which Glaude opined that the incoming president “pulled the grief and regret out of the privacy of our hearts, if just for a moment, so that we all could share it.”

He went on to reference the book of Psalms in opining about the “first step” toward unity he believes Biden’s inauguration will bring about.

“He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds,” Glaude quoted an Old Testament passage before adding: “Maybe the dead will speak to us now. Maybe they can rest now.”

    1. FUNNY!

  2. Looking at joe biden all I can see is a weak old man. He is obviously speaking from a written manifest. His hands tremble and he looks confused. He definitely isn’t the strong leader the democrats try to portray. He doesn’t give me thrills or chills, maybe a little bit of nausea. I just turn off these gushing unaware individuals who pretend he is going to do anything for the american people. He and his fellow democrats will line their pockets while “we the people” lose our homes, our jobs and won’t be able to feed our families. He will be a waste of 4 years.

  3. When I hear Sleepy speak, I feel something running down my leg to. But mostly I’m so confused about what he just said, that I get a migraine.

  4. Maybe Lauren Wolfe was dreaming about Biden reaching under her skirt and feeling her up. That was the chill COLD HANDS that she felt strike her lonely being. What was waste this woman is.

  5. America wake up. We need to look to GOD. Ask HIM For guidance only GOD can unite us. Both sides of our pathetic government are CRIOKE: all have pockets open for all they can get from the nations who HATE. Us but all would love to be here What’s up with that. Where are your BRAINS and HEART

  6. With all the hate and all the people that can’t get together I feel that with them taking gods name out of the schools, the prayers and devotions. And most of all in god we trust , they shouldn’t be quoting anything from the Bible . Because the verse that they just quoted wasn’t meant the way they used it. I just feel as a person with the things about god that they have removed , they shouldn’t be using the Bible as their source. But that’s just my opinion and most of us have one . To many things have been used in this election and the Bible shouldn’t be one that needs to be bought up now . The Bible should have been used all along and gods name should have remained in all that they removed it from to start with . . People have forgotten that he is the king the almighty the beginning and the end . And he is still on the throne no matter who is president. He will undo all that has been done wrong and will uncover all untruth. Time will tell , we all need to remember he created man and woman and heaven and earth and for human to try and destroy all that he created , he will appear and he will prevail, there is no one as mighty as he . So it’s sad if now someone thinks that they can say the verse in the Bible was meant for biden to do . This country shouldn’t have turned out the way they have made it turn out to be ! Just shows power is bad if you use it to hurt others it was meant to be , One nation under god ! I just hate to see the way that we all have betrayed god and the country he created . So I’ve turned to god and I pray he can fix it.

    1. Some how when ever you’ve used the Father’s name God : You wrote God in lower case.
      ( god ) Hmmm. Im not buying your claim of belief: Point of fact When ever one writes Either the name of thy Father The Son or Holy Spirit. If that is you are a true follower of Christ Jesus . We use upper case as in Capitalization !!!

  7. Oh now use the Bible when they think it can benefit them. So obvious that they are hypocrites. God knows their wicked hearts and thoughts. He gets the last say.✝️

  8. Lie a little, cheat a little and God will beat you with a few stripes and all will be well. That is Satans mantra.

  9. I remember all the brainwashed looking at Obama like he was the savior! Too blinded by the flowery rhetoric to see he was lying. The great manipulator strikes again, Biden and Harris are his stooges to get him back in the White House, along with his “ pet monkey” Susan Rice. Biden will not last Thirty days till he wii be gone, Harris shortly after. People, you have been had!

  10. Perhaps God will bring the judgement upion America it deserves for the slaughter of the innocent unborn! May He take this wicked Administration down & deal with all their evil plans for America.

    May God bless & prosper Pres Donald J Trump who worked so hard, w/o a salary for the country he loved so much! May Biden’s thirst for power bring him down!

  11. Hi! This post could not be written any better! Reading through this post reminds me of my old room mate! He always kept talking about this. I will forward this post to him. Fairly certain he will have a good read. Thanks for sharing!
