David Corn: Clinton-Lynch Meeting Was ‘Dumb,’ Put Bill On ‘An Island’ For Next Four Months

On Friday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Hardball,” Mother Jones Washington Bureau Chief and MSNBC analyst David Corn slammed the meeting between Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton as “dumb, capital D.” And recommended putting Bill Clinton “on an island for the next four months.”

Corn said the meeting was “dumb, capital D.” And “[T]hey should put Bill Clinton, I think, on an island for the next four months.”

Corn added of Clinton, “[H]e hasn’t lost, I think, his touch as a candidate, but certainly, he’s shown poor judgment.”

NBC News Senior Political Reporter Perry Bacon added, “She made a mistake. She said so. But it was a mistake by her, but really, Bill Clinton. He knows what’s going on. … Bill Clinton has to know better.”

Bacon later said, “[W]hen I heard about this, I was like, what is she thinking? And I think everybody in Washington thought that, too.”
