MSNBC Host Admonishes Tim Ryan Over Ethnic Comment

On “Hardball,” MSNBC’s Chris Matthews warns Rep. Tim Ryan against using the term “Dago Red”

By NTK Staff | 11.30.2016 @8:35pm

Appearing on MSNBC’s “Hardball,” Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH) used a highly offensive term. Trying to communicate the difficulties Democrats are having in getting their message out, Rep. Ryan said:

“So you can still maintain a level of pragmatism even though you may drink, you know, not Dago Red wine in Youngstown but some kind of fancy Napa Valley wine. You can still understand what’s going on in those people’s lives.”

After a quick chuckle, Matthews admonished the congressman saying, “I wouldn’t use the phrase Dago Red too often.”
