Mika Brzezinski claims the Clinton campaign was trying to silence her during the campaign. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.
"On Friday, Mika Brzezinski of MSNBC's 'Morning Joe' recalled an incident when her network got a call after she made some comments about the Clinton campaign's complacency prior to the election.
She said, "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."
She went on to say, "I'll just say it – NBC got a call from the [Clinton] campaign. Like I had done something that was journalistically inappropriate or something and needed to be pulled off the air.”
Brzezinski further noted, "I mean, think about that. That's just – shooting the wrong messenger."
Co-host Joe Scarborough added, "…there were also people surrounding the campaign that tried to tell the campaign it was in trouble."
Days after the election, Politico had noted, "The causes of Hillary Clinton's defeat will be debated for years, but in the first cold light of the day after, one big cause seems clearer than others: Her complacency. Years of it. A chronic case of complacency, in fact.””*
