Today, Tennessee GOP Rep. Marsha Blackburn appeared on MSNBC’s “Hardball” with Chris Matthews.

During the interview, the discussion turned to President Obama’s decision to release five Taliban leaders in return for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.

When Matthews asked Blackburn what she’d have said if Obama said “no” to the five-for-one prisoner swap, Blackburn said this: “You never leave a man behind. That is why we’re also concerned about what happened in Benghazi.”

Here’s video of the exchange:

Blackburn’s multiple mentions of Benghazi brought out the hate from some of those watching the interview:

Ah, the “new tone.”

Now back to the “Republican War on Women.”
