Wilmore: If We Blame Obama For Benghazi, We Have To Blame Bush For 9/11 (VIDEO)

October 20, 2015 7:49 a.m.

Following the dueling jabs between Republican presidential candidates about who was really to blame for 9/11, Larry Wilmore said on Monday’s episode of “The Nightly Show” that it’s time we start examining our presidential system of blame.

“What he did afterward is the only thing that matters. Afghanistan, Iraq, PATRIOT Act, Gitmo, waterboarding,” Wilmore said. “Bush basically created the first five seasons of ’24’!”

But, it’s easy to say how you would have prevented 9/11 more than a decade later, Wilmore said.

“If you’re in that seat you’re going to get blamed for shit that wasn’t your fault and credited for shit that you didn’t do. So if Republicans are going to spend a majority of their time blaming Obama for something like Benghazi then you have accept the fact that George W. Bush is to blame for 9/11,” Wilmore said. “It doesn’t matter what it is, if you’re sitting in that seat, you get blamed.”
