NRA ad stuns, disgusts Morning Joe panel
On Wednesday morning's Morning Joe, panelist Mike Barnicle went so far as to call the ad "pornography," while co-host Mika Brzezinski called the NRA leadership "sick in the head."
"Joe mentioned the issue of pornography," Barnicle said, "pornographic videos. Let's get to the ad, okay, because this is pornography."
"Morning Joe" co-host Joe Scarborough Shows His Feeling of 'disgusting' for The new NRA ad 'Stand and Fight' that paints President Barack Obama as an "elitist hypocrite" for sending his children to a school where they have armed protection.
"What's wrong with these people, Mika?" he asked Mika Brzezinksi, hanging his head. "What's wrong with these people?"
"What's wrong with these people," he later emphasized. "Putting out apps that kids can play on the anniversary of the Newtown murders, and now putting out an ad talking about the President's daughters?"
Brzezinksi said she was "embarrassed" for the country because a "fringe" organization controls so much debate over an important topic.
"This is how they mark the anniversary of Newtown, one month later," Scarborough said. "I've never seen an organization as out of touch and extreme with middle America as this one. ... The NRA's worst enemy could not be doing the damage to this once-respected, mainstream organization that Wayne LaPierre is every single day."
