Matthews: If Dem Had Been President on 9/11, He Would Have Been Tried for Treason

‘Because they would never forget a Democrat for what happened in New York — that’s why I don’t mind Trump going after W. in this thing’

MATTHEWS: "I think Trump may have overstepped. Republicans in South Carolina are unlikely to accept the fact that George W. Bush, W. As we fondly call him, or unfondly, really was president when we were hit on 9/11. He wasn’t just president the Friday after when he put his arm around the guy and said we will get the guy who knocked down these walls. But in the days before and months before, if a Democrat had been president, I contend, there would have been treason trial. Because they would never forget a Democrat for what happened in New York. That’s why I don’t mind Trump going after W. in this thing."
