The notoriously touchy Clinton campaign apparently can’t even take questioning when it comes from friendly quarters.
MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough brought it up Monday in passing chat with sidekick Mika Brzezinski, who must have ruffled some Clinton feathers Friday with some inopportune observations about the former secretary of state’s penchant for secrecy.
Check out Friday’s exchange.
Brzezisnki isn’t known for being harsh on libs but those comments were dead on. And the crack about the media – The New York Times in this case – being besotted with chasing non-existent scandals among Republicans while ignoring blatant conflicts of interest for the Clintons was classic.
“My question is for our viewers. Why is it OK that while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state there were all these trades going on and ulterior motives and even TV personalities giving money?” she said.
“I don’t understand how Bill Clinton can get on stage and say maybe some people had ulterior motives and we’re going to just be like okay, let’s cover Marco Rubio’s driveway.”
And how did that go over with the presumptive candidate’s presumptuous people? Not very well, apparently, judging by Monday’s asides.
“Quite frankly, on Friday you had tough things to say about Hillary,” Scarborough told Brzezinski Monday. “And it was DEFCON 5 from the campaign.”
“I know,” she said. “On the phone all day.”
on the phone? The Clintons couldn’t have emailed?
