Chris Matthews was not all that enthused by President Obama's speech in Berlin on Wednesday, and he thought there was one culprit to blame: the sun.
Obama delivered a wide-ranging speech — in which he called for reductions in America and Russia's stockpile of nuclear weapons, as well as action against climate change — at the city's historic Brandenburg Gate.
Matthews reacted to the speech, saying that Obama "struggled" with his speech at times. "The late afternoon sun in Berlin, I think, ruined his use of the teleprompters," the MSNBC host said, "So his usual dramatic wind-up was ruined."
