MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski Says Clinton Campaign Tried to Get Her ‘Pulled Off the Air’ for Criticizing Them [VIDEO]

Written by Philip Hodges

Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski – daughter of Zbigniew Brzezinski, President Carter’s National Security Advisor – said that when she tried to offer some helpful tips to Hillary Clinton’s campaign, her employer NBC got a phone call from them, trying to get her ‘pulled off the air.’

“Listen, when I was concerned the campaign was not understanding that perhaps there was some arrogance, that they need to get off their high horse and understand that this wasn’t over,” Mika said, “I’ll just say it; NBC received a call from the campaign.”

“Like I had done something that was journalistically inappropriate and needed to be pulled off the air. I mean, think about that,” she said. “That’s just shooting the wrong messenger.”

Her c0-host Joe Scarborough pointed out that there were other people as well trying to get through to the campaign that they didn’t have it sewn up.
