MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski on Tuesday defended former Vice President Joe BidenJoe BidenNorth Korea conducts potential 6th missile test in a month Clyburn predicts Supreme Court contender J. Michelle Childs would get GOP votes Overnight Defense & National Security — US delivers written response to Russia MORE for a second straight day, calling allegations of inappropriate touching against him "ridiculous" and warning "woke" people on the left that they're "eating those who can beat Trump."
“I think the next time I see Joe Biden and he doesn't hug me, and give me a kiss and hold my hand while we're talking to you, that's the new Joe Biden, and that's not the Joe Biden I knew," Brzezinski said on "Morning Joe."
"He’s a nice guy, he’s not a predator, and this is ridiculous. Let me just say it, this is ridiculous," Brzezinski continued.
Biden is facing a crisis before the expected launch of his White House bid after he was accused by a second woman of inappropriate touching.
The allegations have shined a spotlight on Biden’s interactions with women, leading to new questions about his behavior and testing his relationships with Democrats.
Brzezinski said that the situation has “gotten out of control.”
"The conversation has gotten out of control," she said. "And Democrats and those on the left who want to tweet me today and go nuts and get all woke, you’re eating your young. You’re eating those who can beat Trump, you’re killing the very people who have been pushing women ahead, who’ve been fighting for equal pay, who have been doing everything they can to respect women in their lives.”
Her commentary quickly elevated Brzezinski to one of the top trending topics on Twitter, drawing mixed reactions.
