Chris Matthews on Mother who lost son in Benghazi: I don’t care what that woman has felt.

After diplomat Sean Smith’s mother, Patricia Smith, stated that she personally held Hillary Clinton accountable for the death of her son (who died in Benghazi), reporters and commentators on MSNBC began labeling the grieving mother as a “liar.”

“I blame Hilary Clinton,” Smith said at the 2016 Republican National Convention. “I blame Hillary Clinton personally for the death of my son.”

Chris Matthews stated that Smith “lied” and claimed that her rhetoric “ruined” the entire convention.

“I don’t care what that woman up there, that mother has felt,” Matthews expressed. “Her emotions are her own.”
“It’s wrong for someone to get up there and tell a lie about Hillary Clinton,” he stated. “They ruined their evening with this.”

Other reporters began to join their colleague in criticizing the mother.

Unbelievably, Rachel Maddow seemed to distance herself from the other commentators, and appeared to sympathize with Smith. She expressed the mother’s remarks were from the heart, and her entire recollection of her experience with Hillary Clinton was hard to listen to.

    Where did they get this insanely stupid ass hole of a moron? I hope he looses someone in his family and it be the fault of someone else and don’t you dare say it the assailants fault and that you have rights to your feelings. Fuck you ass hole. You need to be taken out in the ally and beaten with a base ball bat. Or better yet die the same deaths the ambassador and our brave solders did. What a shit for brains jerk.

      What? This is so heartless and sad. Wait until Killary brings the mothers of slain black kids on stage at her convention. I suppose that’ll be okay.

    Chris Matthews, you should be ashamed of yourself.. How heartless can one man be….. How can you condemn a mothers right to speak her mind on how she feels.. killary is indirectly to blame..By not giving a straight story and avoiding answers to questions has cover up written all over it and We all know she is no stranger to burying her messes and lying about them… I am so disappointed in your disloyalty to our country and have lost all respect for you.

    Cissy Mathews… I hope you lose your job! Why would you make spineless ignorant comments like that?? To gain a temporary spike in ratings…? Your a pathetic excuse for a man and a human being and I hope that MSNBC gets rid of you, or better yet deports you to an islamic territory to report on ISIS activity. You know, were people get beheaded..! FUCKYOU!

    Hahaha we are getting a lesson on right and wrong from Chris Matthews? The only reason he “doesn’t care what that woman felt” is because the words of that mother had such an impact on viewers. She bravely got up and spoke her heart, spoke for her son who could not speak for himself. It’s sad to think what the heart of that patriot felt those last moments of life when he realized help would never arrive. How his heart must have been broken as he braved the storm. I am glad she got to speak out. What a brave mom. I hope she finds forgiveness in her own heart one day, it will help to comfort her, but what a healing balm it will be for her when Mr. Trump landslides the victory.

    This is sickening. She has every right to speak about how she feels you heartless P.O.S. Nobody cares about your thoughts how about you get off of t.v. and let someone who cares about telling the truth have your job? Killary had everything to do with what happened to them, i believe Obama had his hand in it too.

    It so saddens me that Mr. Matthews apparently is so gung ho for his political party that even a mother’s heartbreaking verbalization of what happened to her son (now dead) does not move this man to show compassion; only that it hurt Hillary’s ratings. That mother had a right to her feelings and in the beginning she even refused to talk about this because she loved Hillary and fully believed the story of a “video”; until Hillary got before Congress and it was found out that she emailed her daughter that it was terrorism – not the video and no help was sent to Benghazi. Any mother would feel Hillary lied to them and Chris Matthews got pouty over this mother’s grief over losing her son and then being lied to about it from a head of our government that she had respected. Isn’t this the guy who got a “thrill” running down his leg over Pres. Obama? Kind of wonder if he is right in the head or wears blinders to the truth.

    Though I may agree with some of the comments here, the language used does not fit the message. Please find some better and more tasteful adjectives to use.

    This woman lost her son You scumbags. For these people to attack her just because she’s called out Hillary Clinton only proves that you’re a heartless, godless, bunch of people. I’m sorry for her loss and our countries loss and I pray that You people wake up before November!

    Your comments are despicable! Please tell me why is Pat Smith called wrong and disrespected but the Khan family are being marched from show to show being heralded as victims?
