While people spent the last 24 hours filling their undies over a questionable portion of Melania Trump's speech, Chris Matthews and a GQ contributer by the name of Bethlehem Shoals attacked the mother of Sean Smith, a victim of the Benghazi terrorist attack, after she spoke at the RNC Convention:
Patricia Smith — the mother of Sean Smith, who was killed in the 2012 terrorist attacks in Benghazi, Libya — delivered a raw, emotional and unapologetic speech at the Republican National Convention on Monday that centered on one person: Hillary Clinton .
MSNBC's Chris Matthews was asked for his reaction to the speech during the network's convention coverage and didn't hold anything back.
"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. 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."
