Matthews: Trump’s Talking in the ‘Same Language of Murderers’ by Calling People ‘Invaders’

‘It’s unfortunate that people talk in the same language as murderers, but that’s what it is’

EXCERPT:

MATTHEWS: "I’ve never seen a president so unwelcome, ever. Because usually people who are grieving, however we say it in our traditions, our religious traditions, they welcome any sign of sympathy or empathy. Trump is not welcome today. His timing is off. Under Jewish tradition, they do bury people very quickly. That’s the way it’s done. Even in the conservative tradition. And clearly he’s got his timing off and it looks exploitative because of all the hateful things he’s been saying about invasions. The language does sync with some of these violent haters. It’s unfortunate that people talk in the same language as murderers, but that’s what it is. This is calling people, caravans, and calling them invaders. And they’re not bad people trying to come to the United States. We’ve all come to the United States, most of us except Native Americans, we all came here one way or the other. We were brought here. And the idea there's something evil by trying to get here is ridiculous, morally ridiculous."
