On Thursday’s “Morning Joe” on MSNBC, host Joe Scarborough expressed his befuddlement over former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s late night statement via Twitter, which she called on the State Department to release her emails.
I want the public to see my email. I asked State to release them. They said they will review them for release as soon as possible.

Scarborough accused the former first lady of playing the American people for fools.
“The statement that she put out last night, the tweet, such absolute nonsense, insulting the intelligence of everybody saying I’m going to ask the State Department to release my emails. They don’t have them. She has them. They have 55,000 emails that she and her staff parsed through and decided to give to them and she’s saying to the State Department, that’s like me telling you, Willie, I am asking you to release my son from captivity. You don’t have him. I got him. I mean, how stupid. And this is a question I have asked of the Clintons since 1992. How stupid do they think we are?”
