Chris Matthews opened tonight’s Hardball by practically applauding Donald Trump for going after George W. Bush over 9/11, something he said Democrats “never had the stones” to do.
Matthews said Trump finally argued what everyone has been yearning to say for years: Bush “didn’t keep us safe” and 9/11 is a pretty huge reason why. He claimed for years the Bushes and their allies said it just wasn’t proper to question whether the administration didn’t do its due diligence in keeping the nation safe leading up to 9/11.
Matthews thanked Trump and said that while he is “not a big fan of Donald Trump on many occasions,” he did a service by ripping the bandaid off on this issue.
He continued, “The Democrats never had the stones to go out and challenge George W… because they probably felt that would be un-nice. Trump isn’t un-nice, he’s willing to be tough.”
