MSNBC’s Chris Matthews wasn’t a fan of Sen. Marco Rubio’s response to President Obama’s State of the Union address this evening.

Matthews described the speech as “tinkertoy” and “juvenile,” “primitive,” and “something you would hear on the high school debating team.”

Matthews suggested that Rubio was hypocritical, accusing him of calling government evil while citing the good aspects of government programs like Medicare and federal student loans.

“It was a kid's presentation of a philosophy reduced to maybe the ninth grade level,” Matthews concluded. “I’m sorry, that’s what it was.”
