MSNBC host Chris Matthews and MSNBC contributor David Corn believe they know why Republicans have a problem with President Barack Obama’s former National Security Advisor Susan Rice – her gender and her skin color.

In discussing how Republicans reacted to Rice, who it was revealed this week asked for names of Trump campaign officials to be unmasked in intelligence reports, telling conflicting stories in the past few weeks, Matthews observed, “Notice it’s always a female? Just a thought.”

“By the way,” Matthews, whose wife Kathleen is interim Chair of the Maryland Democratic Party,  declared, “this is all after the election. This wasn’t politics.”

Corn later chimed in to defend Rice and saying, ” at the end of the day, we need some element of decency.” He then continued to say, “So they are making her, you know, basically they’re defaming her without any reason to do so because she’s a woman. Maybe because she’s a black woman.”
