MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski announced Monday that the Hillary Clinton campaign has stopped having any “conversation” with her show, “Morning Joe,” because the Clinton team can’t “control” the hosts.

Brzezinski criticized Hillary Clinton’s interview Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation” saying it was “textbook planned out.” (RELATED: Hillary Wants To ‘Lead The World’ And Take In 65,000 Syrian Refugees)

The “Morning Joe” co-host said “this interview was set up so that certain questions on policy were required for a certain amount of time and then they could go into emails for a certain amount of time.” (RELATED: Hillary Laughs: ‘I Can’t Imagine Anyone Being More Of An Outsider Than The First Woman President’ [VIDEO])

Mika Brzezinski: Well, that’s because the campaign did not allow that. You know that this interview was set up so that certain questions on policy were required for a certain amount of time and then they could go into emails for a certain amount of time. Believe me, it was textbook planned out. I can see Jen Palmieri and everybody all over that interview and this happened with two other network interviews. I do know it happens. I can tell you right now, the conversation with this show stopped because we were not controlled.
