Brzezinski: Unless Bill Apologizes ‘For Being a Sexual Harasser,’ Hillary ‘Needs to Stop Talking About This Topic’


On Monday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” co-host Mika Brzezinski argued that former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton should “stop talking about” sexual misconduct until her husband, Bill, apologizes for his behavior. Brzezinski said, “Hillary Clinton needs to stop. She needs to stop talking about this topic, unless Bill Clinton wants to come forward and apologize, for being a sexual harasser, for settling with women, for what happened with [Monica Lewinsky]. He needs to apologize. He needs to apologize as quickly as Al Franken did, as much as Al — as Mark Halperin did, and as much as he wants to. These men who are apologizing, we need to deal with them. But, if you’re not going to apologize, and it’s clear you’ve done something wrong, please, please, you the politician, and your wife the politician need to not talk about these issues. … Because this is why we’re here. This is why we’re here with Donald J. Trump. … Because of hypocrisy.” Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett

Alabama Newspapers Calling for Rejection of Roy Moore Endorsed Hillary, Called Trump ‘Dangerous’ in 2016

Judge-Roy-Moore-
On Sunday morning, Alabamians that still have subscriptions to the print editions of The Birmingham News, The Huntsville Times or Mobile, AL’s Press-Register woke to see their morning newspaper telling them to “reject Roy Moore” in bold lettering above the each of those paper’s nameplates. An editorial that accompanied the headline criticized Moore, the Republican candidate for U.S. Senate in next month’s special election, and urged readers to vote for his opponent Democratic Party nominee Doug Jones. “By the various misdeeds, miscalculations and mistakes of its voters and leaders, Alabama has left itself with few options. Alabamians must show themselves to be people of principle, reject Roy Moore and all that he stands for,” it said. “There is only one candidate left in this race who has proven worthy of the task of representing Alabama. He is Doug Jones.” Moore has been under fire since reports first surfaced earlier this month that he engaged in inappropriate behavior and/or sexual misconduct decades ago while serving as a prosecutor and judge in Etowah County, AL. In a statement given to CNN’s Brian Stelter, AL.com vice president of content Michelle Holmes said the reason for the editorial’s prominent placement was that the editorial board of these three

Hillary Blasts Trump, Moore for Not Accepting Responsibility on Sexual Misconduct Allegations


Friday on WABC radio’s “The Rita Cosby Show,” former first lady Hillary Clinton said Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) had taken “responsibility” for his sexual misconduct, while Alabama GOP U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore and President Donald Trump have not. Clinton said, “Look, we have a man who is accused of sexual assault sitting in the Oval Office, don’t we? And the very credible accusations against him have not been taken seriously. So I think that the Republicans have a big problem that they are going to have to address and it’s not just confined to Alabama.” She continued, “Look, Al Franken is a friend of mine, and I deeply regret what he did. There is no excuse for his behavior, none at all. But he has called for an investigation. He has apologized to the woman involved. Apparently, she has accepted the apology. I think we have got to recognize he agreed to an ethics investigation. It will go to the ethics committee. It will investigate whatever the situation was, and they’ll decide what if any action should be taken based on that behavior. I think that is the appropriate process. I think something like that coming into the public arena, and Al’s very quick acceptance of responsibility and
