On Thursday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Hardball,” during an interview with Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY), host Chris Matthews asked the New York Democrat to speculate on what President Donald Trump was “scared” of when it comes to gun control.
“I’ve got to ask you this president seems scared to death that it’d be like something that the first George Bush when he came out for tax increases, and he got beat because he broke his promise.
He seems to be scared to death to lose his virginity on this question of I’m not for any gun control.
So, why would this president be concerned that, if he did something reasonable supported by more than 90 percent of the American people on background check legislation, they would all of a sudden, on this particular issue, decide to abandon him?
And so that is going to fall on Moscow Mitch and the Senate the do-nothing Republican senators, and President Trump.”
