Speaking in Washington, D.C., Tuesday night, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) attacked presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump for comments he made about the real estate bubble in 2006.
“What kind of a man roots for people to get thrown out of their house?” Warren asked the audience, referring to a statement the real estate magnate made that is now the centerpiece of an ad released Tuesday by the Clinton campaign.
On Tuesday, MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” led with the story of the Clinton ad and Warren’s impassioned speech admonishing Trump for the 10-year-old comment.
After playing a clip from Warren’s speech, co-host Mika Brzezinski sent a message to the Clinton campaign team, “Please give her (Warren) what she wants.”
Joe Scarborough responded to Brzezinski by reminding his partner of the Massachusetts senator’s history of purchasing foreclosed homes and flipping them for a big profit, which was a reported by National Review May 27, 2015.
Watch the exchange:
For a few minutes, Scarborough, Brzezinski and the “Morning Joe” panel discussed Warren’s strength as a surrogate and “wing man” for Hillary Clinton.
Brzezinski tried to move the discussion a different direction. But, not before she told Scarborough, “You need to stop making fun of me about Elizabeth Warren,” Brzezinski said.
