Chris Matthews lamented the elements this morning after he blamed the setting sun for blocking President Obama's view of the teleprompters and ruining his "dramatic windup" during a speech in Berlin.
"I think a lot of the problem he had today was the late afternoon sun in Berlin. I think it ruined his use of the teleprompters and his usual dramatic windup was ruined. I think he was really struggling with the text there," the MSNBC host said on Chuck Todd's "The Daily Rundown."
Mr. Matthews went on to praise the president's speech, saying the headline "will be balance on surveillance and privacy."
"The political response to reality and today's news is balance. I think he's trying to make that case to an audience, which he knew would be skeptical," he added.
