One of the arguments pushed by conservatives in the wake of Khizr Khan‘s powerful attacks against Donald Trump is that there has been great media and political hypocrisy in how he was treated versus Gold Star mother Patricia Smith.
Smith’s son Sean died in Benghazi, and during the RNC two weeks ago, she declared that Hillary Clinton is to blame for her son’s death.
Now, Clinton has not publicly made comments close to what Trump said about Khan. But as Smith pointed out on CNN today, Clinton has basically called her a liar.
She told Brooke Baldwin that while no one should be going after grieving families, she does not think Trump should have to apologize for his attacks against the Khans because “that’s what he believes.”
She went on to say that people “haven’t jumped on Hillary for anything she has said” and that she’s gotten it worse than Khan has:
“I was treated like dirt. I don’t think the Khan family was treated that way. But I was treated like dirt, I was called a liar. She went on TV many times and nodding her head, thinking that she’s so wonderful and she knows everything and I know nothing… I don’t like her decisions, she kills people!”
