Take a moment and imagine this were Donald Trump speaking about Gold Star father, Khizr Khan. Imagine the outrage. Imagine the anger, disappointment, and wall-to-wall media coverage.
Imagine it, because you’re never going to actually see it in regards to this story.
Harry Reid, senior United States Senator from Nevada, major Hillary Clinton supporter, and member of the triumvirate of liberal idiocy alongside Nancy Pelosi and President Obama, just called a Gold Star mother “crazy.”
Reid was referring to Pat Smith, mother of Benghazi victim Sean Smith, who gave a speech at last month’s RNC in which she “blame(d) Hillary Clinton personally for the death of my son.”
Reid said she is “crazy.”
Take a look …
Via the Washington Times:
In an extensive interview with the Reno Gazette-Journal he also called Patricia Smith, the mother of a State Department employee slain in the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attack, “crazy” for her speech at the GOP convention questioning Hillary Clinton’s behavior. Mr. Reid then tried to tack back that characterization and instead accused Mrs. Smith of lack of accuracy.”
And he attacked Mrs. Smith, one of the many speakers at the GOP’s convention last month who questioned Mrs. Clinton’s handling of the Benghazi attack and said Mrs. Clinton told her the attack was a response to an anti-Islam video — even as Mrs. Clinton was telling her own daughter it was a terrorist strike.
“I blame Hillary Clinton personally for the death of my son,” Mrs. Smith said in an emotional and controversial speech. “How could she do this to me? How could she do this to any American family?”
Mr. Reid said her speech was part of a smear campaign against Mrs. Clinton.
“They had that poor Smith woman come out and say ‘Hillary Clinton killed my son.’ How crazy,” Mr. Reid said, before again attempting to correct himself: “Maybe that’s the wrong word. How lack of accuracy.”
It’s infuriating to know that Reid’s comments will largely be dismissed by the media, and he’ll receive little to no flak for them.
Almost makes you wish Reid would challenge his crafty and violent exercise bands to another fight.
