The co-hosts of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” have engaged in an on-again, off-again feud with Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, to whom they have directed a lot of harsh criticism.
Joe Scarborough, a former Republican congressman from Florida who likes to bash his own party at every opportunity, and career liberal journalist Mika Brzezinski, a self-described Hillary supporter, have also thrown some shade at Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
In a new WikiLeaks revelation, a Clinton insider described the private email server idea as “f–ing insane,” which runs counter to Team Clinton’s public narrative.
From The Daily Caller:
Mika Brzezinski scolded Hillary Clinton’s supporters and campaign staff for pretending Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server was a non-story, even though ‘it all seems very clear’ those same people ‘knew it was wrong’ from the beginning.
In the clip below, Brzezinski seems to be calling out Team Clinton for its approach to the scandal, given the ongoing WikiLeaks revelations:
I just remember being absolutely stunned about this private server, and I remember her press conference that she had and seeing her supporters after saying, ‘well it must have been secure.’ There’s just so much assumption going on here when it just seems like they did something so out of bounds to obviously protect some sort of interest, and now it all seems very clear what was going on.
Brzezinski made her comments just hours before FBI Director James Comey announced that he would be reopening the email probe against Clinton.
Scarborough chimed in that all the Clinton apologists should shut up and that the scandal is a big deal after all, which is borne out by the concern expressed by the campaign behind the scenes.
Earlier this month, Mike ripped Hillary Clinton for hypocrisy in demanding Trump’s tax returns. Both Brzezinski and Scarborough also recently accused their own network of “cooking” a poll to give Clinton an artificial lead over Trump as well as scolding the media generally for its manufactured outrage over Trump’s unwillingness, in advance, to accept the election results.
Some Clinton critics believe the private server was a means to conceal a money laundering operation between multinational corporations and foreign governments and the Clinton Foundation while Hillary was secretary of state.
