Mika Brzezinski from MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” went on a tirade against President Trump, going so far as to equate what she called “Trump’s lack of decency” to former President Bill Clinton’s sex scandal.Seems like sort of a leap, seeing as how Clinton committed adultery while in the White House, then lied about it under oath.
The Blaze reports:
“I know that you’re…on the edge of your seat as I talk about this,” Brzezinski began, directly addressing co-host Joe Scarborough. “I…I know what I’m trying to say here, and I’ll try and give you a parallel to help you understand: What Bill Clinton did to the issue of sex to an entire generation, I believe this president is doing on issues of decency, on issues of conspiracy theories, on issues of fake news.”
She concluded her comments by saying, “I think it’s that simple and we’re desensitized if we even argue it.”Brzezinski’s comments came after the MSNBC panel interviewed Rep. Mark Sanford (R-S.C.), who described the “surreal” atmosphere on Capitol Hill after Wednesday’s shooting at a GOP congressional baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia.
Yeah, not sure Mika’s argument really holds up well, and it just seems like more of the same old anger being leveled at Trump because, well, that’s what everyone is doing right now.
Clinton has been accused, many times, of sexual assault, something the left seems to frequently overlook since the man is one of their own, and as a result he did much damage to the office of president, his own reputation, and on it goes.These are pretty serious issues, much worse than “fake news” or “conspiracy theories,” and to equate the two seems awfully insensitive to actual victims of assault and abuse.
You would think that would be something folks on the left would be all about, but perhaps that’s only when the issue is politically expedient?[Note: This article was written by Michael Cantrell]
