An MSNBC panel slammed Hillary Clinton over the tapes uncovered by the Washington Free Beacon which record her laughing about freeing a child rapist, calling her behavior jarring and disturbing.
She sounded boastful, noted Joe Scarborough. She sounded boastful on the tape that she was able to get this 41-year-old guy who raped a young girl, a minor girl, and get him off and was laughing about the evidence, laughing about the lie detector test, laughing about a lot of it. Its disturbing to say the least, isnt it?
The Huffington Posts Sam Stein agreed, Yeah, the boastfulness in the audiotape is certainly disturbing and, you know, whereas she could have sounded regretful about the circumstances of the case and the outcome but still admitted this was her job and she fulfilled it.
Mika Brzezinski asked, From the boastful tone, is that a problem for Hillary Clinton, being dismissive of a young girl who was abused sexually?
Bloombergs Mark Halperin replied, I think its a little bit off key given what her campaign will be about.
Halperin also speculated that this story shows that the American public may know less about Clinton than they think they do: We think we know everything about her? This story and others that have come out in the last few months show theres lots more to come.
Scarborough added that, while he was an attorney and knows many attorneys, he has never heard anyone discuss defending a child rapist in the flippant manner Clinton displays in the tape. That is jarring, he said. Im not sure why she is bragging about getting a child rapist two months.
Al Sharpton concurred with the other panelists, observing, It clearly is not the kind of situation that she wants to have to defend when youre hearing your own voice taking lightly something that speaks to one of your core issues, and that is the value of women.
Kirsten Powers was also visibly disturbed about this a week or two ago when this was on Oreilly.
Much like our current president.
Hillary thinks of herself as clever. That’s what i learned from the video. She may be clever, but clever and amoral is dangerous.
Don’t fall for it.
This is the old Clinton playbook.
Some folks remark about the outrageous nature of some video, audio, etc.
When you actually see or hear it, it’s comparatively tame.
I wonder who the Left has waiting in the wings instead of Clinton?
MSNBC criticizing Hillary? Wow. I wouldn’t think she’d be the next nominee for the Democrats.
It’s only funny if it happens in the oval office.
Pray America wakes up
I wonder if the disclosure of the tapes has anything to do with the ongoing Clinton/Obama feud?
MSNBC just doing Obama’s dirty work again?
Time has passed her by. The Democrat Party has moved many steps to the left since she was current news. They’re gonna throw her under the bus and nominate a Liz Warren-type.
I think Joe is just there for window dressing. Mika runs that show and she is an avid Elizabeth Warren supporter. She will do everything she can to knock Hillary and promote Warren. Mika also is close to Valerie Jarrett who is rumored to be wooing Warren to get into the 2016 race.
Imagine someone taking the rape and assault of Tawana Brawley as lightly as this...
Waiting in the wings? Elizabeth Warren, of course — she of the “you didn’t build that, the collective did” meme.
Hillary is not lefty enough to gain MSNBC approval.
What’s up with all these negative stories about the Clintons in the media recently?
What’s up with even liberals being openly critical of Hillary???
Are they planning to foist someone else on us in 2016 as the Democrat nominee?
Remember that at this point leading up to the 2008 election cycle, Hillary was talked of as an inevitable candidate, and Barack Obama was little known to most Americans at that time.
Could history repeat itself?
Hillary was considered inevitable once before, and was taken down.
I think Bogus-hontas Warren has aspirations...
They’re just getting this out of the way early.
if a nuke blew up NYC, by 2016 it would be “Dude, that happened 2 years ago”.
They might be shopping and hedging their hillary bets a little. I'd think Warren would be iffy. Does the country really want another pres with so little foreign experience?
I’m sure you know, but just in case—the Brawley thing was a hoax; there was no kidnapping, rape, or assault.
