Much like Japanese audiences serve as a safe haven for aging rock stars, MSNBC serves as a safe haven for Democrats of all stripes. No matter how much trouble a Democrat might be in out in the wider world for your actions, they can always fund succor and softball questions aboard the cable “news” network that once offered Al Sharpton a daily TV show.
So, imagine what you have to do for an MSNBC anchor to tell you to “go to hell” and call for your resignation. That’s exactly what happened to Democrat National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz on Wednesday’s “Morning Joe.”
And it wasn’t just any anchor. It involved MSNBC star Mika Brzezinski, daughter of Carter administration official Zbigniew Brzezinski. She criticized Wasserman Schultz’s handling of Bernie Sanders’ candidacy and the fact that the Democrats’ nomination process seemed rigged in favor of Hillary Clinton.
“This has been very poorly handled from the start,” Brzezinski said in response to a video of Wasserman Schultz blaming the Sanders campaign for a violent confrontation at the Nevada Democrat convention.
“It has been unfair and they haven’t taken him seriously, and it starts quite frankly with the person we just heard speaking. It just does. You know that.”
“Why would Bernie Sanders politely get in line for the Democratic Party?” co-host Joe Scarborough asked.
“Because Hillary Clinton‘s people said so,” Brzezinski responded tartly.
“I sure wouldn’t,” Scarborough responded.
“She should step down,” Brzezinski said.
“If the party I was a member of treated me like this, rigged the debate process,” Scarborough said, “I’d say go straight to hell, I’m running as an independent.”
“She should step down,” Brzezinski reiterated.
So, just so we’re clear: The nominal conservative on “Morning Joe” thinks Debbie Wasserman Schultz should go to hell. The liberal, on the other hand, thinks she should just resign, although perhaps she should skip the package-deal vacation to the River Styx.
When MSNBC thinks that way about you, Ms. Wasserman Schultz, perhaps it’s time to rethink your career options within the Democrat Party.
