Hillary Clinton finally apologized Tuesday for her exclusive use of a personal email while serving as Secretary of State, and MSNBC host Joe Scarborough has just two words to describe her apology:
After Scarborough and his “Morning Joe” cohost Mika Brzezinski watched a clip of Clinton apologizing during an interview with David Muir of ABC News, their faces told the story.
Scarborough said of Clinton's apology:
“Just listen how flat the voice is. Seriously, it was a hostage video. It's almost as if she purposefully said it as quickly and flatly and unwillingly as humanly possible.”
Brzezinski, who said she “wanted to work for” Clinton, added:
“There's a couple of things they cannot get around, and that is being overly controlling, to the point of freakish...”
As the hosts noted, Clinton's use of a personal email was “not allowed” by State Department and Obama administration rules.
Clinton maintains that she never sent or received emails marked or designated as classified at the time, but the CIA has said otherwise. Her emails will continue to be released by the State Department over the coming months.
