MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski is none too pleased with Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s tight grip on the party’s presidential primary process.
After her Morning Joe co-host Joe Scarborough pointed out Wednesday morning that Hillary Clinton’s sole rival, Bernie Sanders, has jumped in both Iowa and New Hampshire polling, Brzezinski pointed the finger at Wasserman Schultz.
“The DNC trying to control the election by making less debates? Good on you. You screwed yourself,” Brzezinski snarked.
“Debbie,” she later muttered under her breath, with thinly veiled contempt, as Scarborough continued to hammer home just how much Clinton’s lead has eroded over self-described “democratic socialist” Sanders.
“Thank God you controlled that debate thing, because that really helped out,” Brzezinski said, continuing to fly off the handle.
Wasserman Schultz has come under fire from progressives for limiting the amount of primary debates, and for scheduling the few that do occur for weekends and holidays when fewer people are likely to tune in.
