Matthews Goes Off on GOP for Overlooking Trump’s Birtherism: ’Has It No Decency?’

Chris Matthews ended his show tonight by going after Republicans for basically giving Donald Trump a giant pass for years on his original sin: birtherism.

“You went along with him,” Matthews said, “when he trashed the president as an illegal alien when Trump again and again accused Barack Obama of being born outside the country” and being an “illegitimate holder of this office.”

Matthews argued “the monstrosity of that indictment needed to be felt and understood by the Republican big shots back when they had the chance to do something about it.”

In the past few months, when Trump has been asked about it again, he has refused to give a straight answer about whether or not he thinks the president is an American citizen.
