MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski calls out Hillary Clinton's "sexism" wolf-cry
MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski on Tuesday slammed Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton's claim implying rival Bernie Sanders was being sexist.
“No,” Brzezinski responded flatly on "Morning Joe" on whether the sexism suggestion was merited. MSNBC co-host Joe Scarborough called Clinton's remarks “pathetic.”
During a a Democratic women's leadership event on Friday Clinton said that she was told to stop “shouting about gun violence.”
During the DNC debate when the discussion turned to guns the Senator from Vermont said "We will not solve the gun issue by shouting about guns"
“Well, first of all, I’m not shouting. It’s just when women talk some people think we’re shouting,” Clinton said.
Sanders responded on Sunday, saying his calls for people to stop “shouting” about gun control weren't aimed at women and that Clinton was “misapplying” his remarks.
“What I was talking about very clearly is that all across this country, we’ve got people shouting at each other, we’ve got to calm it down,” he said on CNN's “State of the Union.”
Brzezinski who is democratic although she is undoubtedly an insider within the party and a corporate friendly darling went on to chide the former Secretary of State by saying: “I know sexism, Hillary Clinton knows sexism; she should know better than to let her staff make her do that”.
“When we talk about sexism, we talk about women and equal pay and all these things that are important. Let's not denigrate it with that stupidity,” Said Brzezinski
This latest attack on Sanders doesn't seem to be neccessary with Clinton leading in the polls especially after garnering a huge bounce after Vice President Joe Biden announced he will not be seeking the oval as well as her good performance during the Congressional hearing on Benghazi. Perhaps their are internal pollls that tell a different story then the mainstream's.
