Mika is on a roll these days when it comes to calling out Clintons for Bill’s sexual misbehavior. This isn’t the first time Mika has spoken out against the Clintons, and it looks like it won’t be the last.
Newsbusters has this story:
The segment in question came after a long discussion throughout the broadcast about allegations of sexual misconduct against multiple politicians, including Roy Moore, Al Franken, Donald Trump, and Bill Clinton. In that context, NBC White House correspondent Kristen Welker was brought on the show to draw attention to Hillary Clinton’s latest comments pointing the finger at Trump as a sexual abuser:
As the clip plays, emphasis on Hillary bashing Trump for sexual assault. But Mika draws it back to reality, really quick.
WELKER: President Trump lashed out, by the way, at Hillary Clinton over the weekend saying this: “Crooked Hillary Clinton is the worst (and biggest) loser of all time. She just can’t stop, which is so good for the Republican Party.-
BRZEZINSKI: [loud sigh] Oh my god.
WELKER: -Hillary, get on with your life and give it another try in three years!” So sort of baiting her to re-enter the race. But Mika, look, this is an issue that I don’t think is gonna go away, and will be a centerpiece again during the briefing.
BRZEZINSKI: [starts talking over Welker] No, and she’s not helping. My “oh my god” was not actually to Trump’s tweet for the first time ever. I just, Kristen Welker, thank you.
BRZEZINSKI: You guys, I’m sorry, but I’m not sorry, actually. Hillary Clinton needs to stop. She needs to stop talking about this topic. Unless Bill Clinton wants to come forward and apologize for being a sexual harasser, for settling with woman for what happened with Mon- — he needs to apologize. He needs to apologize as quickly as Al Franken did, as much as al- — as Mark Halperin did, and as much as he wants to. These men who are apologizing, we need to deal with them, but if you’re not going to apologize and it’s clear you’ve done something wrong, please, please, you the politician and your wife the politician need to not talk about these issues. Just don’t, okay, unless you want to come to the table with some honesty, because this is why we’re here. This is why we’re here with Donald J. Trump, the guy who ran pageants and had enough on the record to know that he doesn’t have a great record with women, who is destroying every step that we have made in the past ten years for women, setting us back. This is why he’s here, because of hypocrisy.
It looks like Hillary and Bill can no longer expect the media to cover for them. Well, not Mika anyway.
