Clinton Campaign Attempted to Get News Anchor “Pulled Off The Air”

On Friday morning, during an episode of MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski, revealed to viewers that during the presidential election, the Hillary Clinton campaign tried to have her removed from broadcasting.

Brzezinski said that the trouble started after she mentioned during a taping of the show that Clinton wasn’t a shoo-in to win the presidency.

She went on to recall the events that occurred after the show aired, “I’ll just say it: NBC got a call from the [Clinton] campaign. Like I had done something that was journalistically inappropriate or something and needed to be pulled off the air.”

Brzezinski felt that the campaign wasn’t fully aware of their true stance in the race. She said, “I was concerned the campaign was not understanding that perhaps there was an arrogance. They needed to sort of get off their high horse and understand that this isn’t over.”

Morning Joe co-host, Joe Scarborough, added, “there were also people surrounding the campaign that tried to tell the campaign it was in trouble. Those people were shut out.”

Brzenzinski ended the segment by saying, “And here we are.”
