Chris Matthews: I Don’t Care How The Mother Of Murdered Benghazi Victim Felt, Wrong For Her To Get Up There And Lie About Clinton

CLEVELAND, OHIO - MSNBC’s Chris Matthews kept it classy (I kid of course) in his commentary on Patricia Smith’s address to the Republican National Convention. Smith is the mother of Sean Smith, one of four Americans who were killed in Benghazi by Islamic terrorists. Smith said that her son was wonderful, and she blames Hillary Clinton personally for his death. She also said that Hillary told her that a video was responsible for the attack. Matthews thought it was wrong for her to go up there on stage and tell lies about Hillary Clinton. He also said that it ruined the Republicans' evening, though with Melania Trump's speech repeatedly being plagiarized that might be the low point of the night.  (via The Hill):

For all of this loss, for all of this grief, for all of the cynicism, the tragedy in Benghazi has wrought upon America, I blame Hillary Clinton," Smith declared from the convention stage in Cleveland on Monday night. "I blame Hillary Clinton personally for the death of my son."

"In an email to her daughter shortly after the attack, Hillary Clinton blamed it on terrorism," said Smith. "But when I saw Hillary Clinton at Sean’s coffin ceremony, just days later, she looked me squarely in the eye and told me a video was responsible. Since then, I have repeatedly asked Hillary Clinton to explain to me the real reason why my son is dead. I’m still waiting."

"I don't understand why the Republicans would choose to put this on prime-time television when they have such wonderful stories of American heroism to speak to the American people," an emotional Matthews said. "I think it was wrong.

"I don't care what that woman up there, the mother, has felt," he continued. "Her emotions are her own. But for the country in choosing a leader, it's wrong to have someone get up there and tell a lie about Hillary Clinton. It's not true. It's logically not true. I think it's wrong that they ruined their evening with this."

Friendly Reminder: As with anything, it’s only wrong when the Republicans do it.
