MSNBC political pundit Chris Matthews is used to mixing it up over politics but usually not quite like this.  

 

Matthews reportedly got into a verbal altercation with GOP delegates at a Tampa Bay restaurant following the conclusion of the Republican National Convention early Friday morning.

 

According to The Hill Matthews was “booed and sworn at” as he left the restaurant prompting him to turn back and ask the GOP delegates, “what’s this, a douchebag convention?” That led to one of the delegates reportedly responding that the “douchebag convention” was, in fact, “next week.”

 

Matthews later said that the altercation was nothing more than a little “towel snapping” among guys. In a separate incident an MSNBC producer reportedly got into a shoving match with two men after they mocked Matthews while he was hosting a show.

 

According to The Hollywood Reporter the fight broke out after two men yelled “Hey Chris, how’s that tingle up your leg?” A reference to this quote about President Obama’s speaking ability in 2008.

 

Matthews: “I felt this thrill going up my leg and I don’t have that too often.”

Olbermann: “Well.....steady.”



Then, according to a witness...

 

“As I’m turning and giggling, this security—well, security, producer, whatever he is for MSNBC just shoves the younger guy, completely manhandles him.”



Matthews also got in a heated on-air argument with GOP Chairman Reince Priebus  early in the week.
