MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski on Friday had warm words for former Vice President Joe Biden’s opening presidential campaign video — and she said it presents a stark contrast with President Donald Trump.
While discussing Biden’s campaign rollout on “Morning Joe,” Brzezinski played excerpts of both Biden’s video and Trump’s Thursday night interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity.
“What Trump’s tweets and his soundbites on Fox about Biden’s rollout video gave us the chance to show America exactly what [Biden] is talking about,” she said. “Put those soundbites side by side and hear Biden talking about the soul of America, and choosing his words so carefully, and then an idiot riffing with absolutely no intelligence. Here it is, America! Side by side! Take a look, take a listen and it’s your choice.”
Guest Eugene Robinson agreed with Brzezinski’s view and said that he did a good job of framing Trump and his “family of grifters that have attached themselves, like leaches, to the White House” as the top threat facing America.

During a panel discussion on CNN Sunday, CNN's Ryan Lizza opened by saying that Johnson is in a tight spot as he's trying to negotiate Brexit while serving as an international leader to the G-7. Johnson also needs to negotiate a trade deal with Trump, but he clearly is going about it in the worst possible way.
