Clinton Campaign Wanted Mika Pulled for Warning Against Thinking Race Was Over
And people fret about Trump trying to control the press? Now we learn about the kind of paranoid control freaks running the Clinton campaign.
Mika Brzezinski made a stunning revelation on today’s Morning Joe. Mika, a loyal Democrat, said that after she warned that the Clinton campaign was perhaps being arrogant in assuming that the race was over, “I’ll just say it: NBC got a call from the campaign. Like I had done something that was journalistically inappropriate or something, and needed to be pulled off the air.”
As Mika said: “think about that.”
Brzezinski’s disclosure came in the context of a discussion of how the Clinton campaign blamed its failure on everything from “fake news” to the Comey letter, without every taking responsibility for its own shortcomings. Notable was the campaign’s failure to address the concerns of working-class Americans.
MIKA BRZEZINSKI: Listen, I was concerned the campaign was not understanding that perhaps there was an arrogance, they needed to sort of get off their high horse and understand that this isn’t over. I’ll just say it: NBC got a call from the campaign. Like I had done something that was journalistically inappropriate or something and needed to be pulled off the air. I mean, think about that. That’s just, that’s shooting the wrong messenger.
JOE SCARBOROUGH: By the way, Mika, there were also people surrounding the campaign that tried to tell the campaign it was in trouble. Those people were shut out.
MIKA: [sighs] And here we are.
JOE: Here we are.
