After President Obama’s post-shellacking press conference, MSNBC host Chris Matthews said on “Now w/Alex Wagner” that the President’s problem was that he only took advice from yes-men and always thought he was right about everything.

“The fact that this President is getting advice from people that say, ‘You’re always right,’ is the problem,” Matthews opined. “He’s got too many sycophants around him telling him, ‘All you have to keep doing is what you’re doing.'” (RELATED: Chris Matthews: Dems Needs To Stop Being ‘Hard Left’ And ‘Get Some Things Done’)

He noted that the president didn’t take any blame fr the loss during his press conference. “What I heard him do right now was, ‘I was right. We had the wrong electorate last night. I’d prefer a different electorate. I’d like the two-thirds of the people who didn’t vote to go vote.’ Well they didn’t vote. They didn’t show up.”

“Why don’t elect the voters?” Matthews mocked, “Why don’t we pick the voters and have them vote for us? Sycophancy!”
