Chris Matthews was nowhere to be seen during MSNBC’s coverage of the South Carolina primary this weekend, no doubt due to the latest charge of sexual harassment levelled last week against the past-his-sell-by-date host.

But if MSNBC decides to keep him around, this could be a real ratings grabber.

Oh wait, they already have “Hardball,” don’t they?

So Matthews couldn’t tell Republican Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) (live at a rally) apart from Democrat Jamie Harrison, who is challenging incumbent Lindsay Graham – even though Harrison was a guest on his program.

This comes only a few days after Matthews had to apologize after comparing Sen. Bernie Sanders’ win in Nevada to the Nazis storming France in World War II.

Sanders, who is Jewish, lost family members in the Holocaust.
