'Morning Joe' hosts say CNN Democratic debate 'painful,' call out moderator's 'bizarre' question
“He says he didn’t say it. So you turn to Elizabeth Warren and say, 'Did he say it?' That’s the issue. I mean, it’s bizarre," Brzezinski said.

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T



The hosts of "Morning Joe" issued stinging criticism Wednesday of the CNN Democratic debate in Iowa, calling it "painful" that the candidates were "bickering" about a two-year-old conversation in which Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., alleges that Sen. Bernie  Sanders, I-Vt., told her a female candidate cannot defeat President Trump in 2020.
Despite Sanders' repeated denials, co-host Mika Brzezinski said CNN political correspondent Abby Phillip's questions on the issue were confusing to watch.

“He says he didn’t say it. So you turn to Elizabeth Warren and say, 'Did he say it?' That’s the issue. I mean, it’s bizarre," Brzezinski said.
"What the heck happened there? Are they listening? Because you gotta listen when you do a debate and then take the question to the next candidate," Brzezinski added, as panelists Donny Deutsch and Karine Jean-Pierre agreed it was a "miss."
Brzezinski said Democrats on the stage should have been proving they can take on Trump in November but instead were "bickering about a conversation that happened at a private event" two years ago.

"It's also painful to watch these candidates argue about this," she said.
"The Democratic base doesn't want to see this; they want to know how you're going to beat Donald Trump. That's what they want to see," said Jean-Pierre, as co-host Joe Scarborough called it "small-ball" for Democrats and said, "Nobody looked good on the debate stage."
"America's standing in the world is at risk. Our government and everything that we have believed that it was striving to be is at risk, and Dems are debating what someone may have said on the telephone two years ago," he added.

Meanwhile, CNN was accused of "media malpractice" over its handling of the disputed claim from Warren Tuesday night.
The liberal news network broke the story on Monday. The network cited unnamed sources close to Warren who claimed that the Vermont senator told her that he didn't believe she could win a presidential election because she's a woman. Sanders denied the claim, but Warren affirmed the report.
Sanders was asked about the dustup by Phillip.
"CNN reported yesterday that -- and Senator Warren confirmed in a statement -- that in 2018 you told her that you did not believe that a woman can win the election. Why did you say that?" Phillip asked.

"Well, as a matter of fact, I didn't say it," Sanders sharply replied. "Anybody who knows me knows that it's incomprehensible that I would think that a woman cannot be president of the United States. Go to YouTube today.  There's some video of me 30 years ago talking about how a woman could become president of the United States."
"Sen. Warren, what did you think when Sen. Sanders told you a woman could not win an election?" Phillip then asked the progressive rival, which sparked audible laughs in the auditorium and a shake of the head from Sanders.
Warren and Sanders had a testy moment after the debate, when she refused to shake his hand.

Ah yes Democrats least favorite subject, their candidates.

I didn't watch much but I did catch the, you said he said drama. I'll have to go with Bernie on this one, Warren is known for distorting the truth. Everything else about the debate...boring.

Warren is known for distorting the truth.

She's pretty bad with math also.   She obviously could not grasp that the win against a Republican incumbent in 1990 was in fact in the last thirty years.

Maybe that's why she always claims to have a "plan for that", but has no concept of how to pay for it.  One must surmise that to her 1+1=

She said none of the men on the stage had beaten a Republican incumbent in the past 30 years. 

And you think that citing an example from exactly 30 years ago is sufficient to make her look horribly wrong.

LOL. Must be a slow day on right wing media and web sites.

The only laughing you should be doing is at the stable of loser the Democrats are proposing.   Warren was WRONG, and the look of abject stupidity on her face was priceless when Sander corrected her.   

Maybe you should have a chat with Van Jones who himself proclaimed while speaking on CNN that the "debate" and the candidates are "uninspiring".  When a hard left Obama minion essentially says they're losers, in a polite way of course, it says a great deal about the hopes for them this year.   ZIP, NADDA, ZILCH, LOSERS, etc., etc., etc.

Powerful she never was or will be, and she is light years away from being smart, not to mention she has been caught in too many lies.

Intelligent and educated voters won't be fooled and will not support her.

What's better is that you obviously do not quite understand the humor of the math skills of Warren.  The look of complete bewilderment when Bernie indicated that 1990 was exactly 30 years ago was hilarious.  It almost looked like she was trying to do the mental calculations.

But, what'e even better is that the left is oh so proud that the stage was populated by what they consider to be the cream of the crop and best of the Democrat party.

One of my old school friends, he is going on 90 I think, got a nice 8 point opening morning out there, 1st deer in over 10 years for him. He was loving it, he will be talking shit for years.

I got permission to fish his land, 20 acres on the Boardman.

I may not agree with Tulsi Gabbard politically; but I do think she is smart and powerful. Just not in a Donald Trump is the root of all evil type of way.; which is the reason the Democrats are rejecting her.

So, Trump getting his fat corrupt lying ass impeached amused you? That is odd and amusing. You do realize that illegally conspiring with a foreign government to illegally interfere with our national elections is exactly the highest of high crimes our nation's founders imagined. Don't you? I guess that whole Hamilton and Maddison thingy completely evaded you. Huh? Trump should be removed merely for obstructing the investigation and for refusing to cooperate with Congress. It is called Obstruction of Justice...

Politicians and some Newstalkers here are very good at trying to put words in other peoples mouths.   They are also good at not accepting what was really said when its inconvenient to the narrative they're pushing at the moment.

It's pretty sad!

My ex used to watch the McLaughlin Report on Saturday mornings (or Sunday .,.. can't remember which). It drove me nuts. The last thing I want when I'm having coffee, reading the paper, enjoying the morning is listening to a bunch of grown men screaming at each other about politics. I started having my coffee out on the deck.
