Benghazi is one thing that Democrats and the liberal media wishes would go away. Benghazi represents so many vulnerabilities for Hillary Clinton and is a glaring example of the incredible dishonesty and abysmal leadership that would permeate Hillary’s presidency. Plus, it’s hard to get rid of a story that has become a major motion picture that was directed by one of the most recognizable names in film, Michael Bay. It has been a continual thorn in the side of many in liberal politics and media. None more so than the blathering, loud-mouth Chris Matthews of MSNBC. But, Matthews response to the speech given by the mother of Sean Smith is completely beyond the pale.

More from The Blaze:
During the opening night of the Republican National Convention Monday, the GOP hosted the mother of one Benghazi victim. According to MSNBC host Chris Matthews, her speech “ruined their evening.”
During her address at the Quickens Loans Arena in Cleveland, Pat Smith blasted the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, saying, “I blame Hillary Clinton personally for the death of my son,” Sean.
“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,” she said. “I blame Hillary Clinton personally for the death of my son.”
Matthews, unhappy with the speech, tore into Smith for voicing “this gross accusation that somehow Hillary Clinton had anything to do with the death of Chris Stevens” and the three other victims.
“I don’t understand why the Republicans would choose to put this on primetime television, when they have such wonderful stories of American heroism to speak to the American people,” he said. “I think it was wrong, I don’t care what that woman up there — the mother — has felt. Her emotions are her own.” [emphasis added]
The MSNBC anchor said it was “wrong” of the Republican Party to host someone who would “lie” about Clinton, saying Smith’s claims are “logically not true and manifestly not true.”
“And anybody who thinks about it for a second knows it’s not true,” he added. “And I think it’s wrong they ruined their evening with this.”
The insensitivity and callousness displayed by Chris Matthews is indicative of the Left’s view of those in harm’s way. They view the military and those men in Benghazi as tools to be thrown away once they’ve outlived their usefulness or endanger their political agenda. Matthews served his typical purpose by carrying Hillary Clinton’s water and had the nerve to call Pat Smith a liar. It gives the American people a clear look at the dark and abhorrent example of the media’s hatred for America, conservative Americans and the patriots who serve this great Nation.
