On Tuesday’s “Morning Joe” on MSNBC, co-host Mika Brzezinski offered her assessment of a potential match-up of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), to which Brzezinski gave the overwhelming advantage to Clinton.
Partial transcript as follows:
BRZEZINSKI: And you measure up accomplishments, and ability to weather the storm, an ability to have had experience that might apply to this job.
DONNY DEUTSCH: The Putin test. Who do you want to see across the table?
BRZEZINSKI: There’s not even–this is not even a conversation. She eats him for lunch. Come on.
JOE SCARBOROUGH, co-host “Morning Joe”: You mean like Barack Obama and John McCain?
BRZEZINSKI: No, like Hillary Clinton and Marco Rubio. There is no comparison. Maybe this is my ideology, but I’m sorry, but that’s a little boy and that’s an experienced accomplished woman who’s been elected to the Senate twice, who served First Lady, who served as Secretary of State.
DEUTSCH: Just feel something: Just react in your tummy.
SCARBOROUGH: So let somebody talk.
DEUTSCH: Talk about the pot —
SCARBOROUGH: Hearing this from two people that worshipped Barack Obama…
DEUTSCH: I didn’t worship —
SCARBOROUGH: …in 2008 is laughable.
