On Wednesday, MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski and Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) stated that they didn’t see any problem with Democratic presidential candidate and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton laughing at a man who said he wants to strangle Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina every time he sees her on TV.
Brzezinski said, “I actually think she handled it well. A lot of people are giving her criticism for that. That’s the first time I saw it. Did that seem so bad to you?” She added, “I don’t see a problem with that. I thought she was kind of funny.”
Shaheen said, “I don’t see an issue with that either. She was — I mean, he’s speaking to the challenge of losing jobs, and that’s what people really care about.”
