MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski suggested that Sen. [crscore]Elizabeth Warren[/crscore] hasn’t endorsed Hillary Clinton due to “concerns about Hillary’s ties to Wall Street and whether or not she truly would be able to be there for the middle class, and would stick to her word on some of these issues.”
Appearing on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Tuesday, Brzezinski tried to evade co-host Joe Scarborough’s insinuation that there was friction between Warren and Clinton suggesting that there could have been a “scheduling issue” that prevented Warren from attending an event with the 13 other female senators Monday night who endorsed Clinton.

Brzezinski explained Clinton “hosted a high-profile show of force last night in Washington, D.C. surrounding herself with some of the most powerful women in America. 13 of the 14 Democratic women in the U.S. Senate were there to back her. The notable absence was Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren who was invited but did not attend.”
Scarborough replied, “Wow,” noting Warren’s absence and asked Brzezinski what she though of the snub.
Brzezinski hesitantly said, “Um, maybe she has a scheduling issue.” Scarborough insisted, “No, I don’t think that. What do you think of that?”
“I don’t know,” Brzezinski replied. Scarborough suggested, “There’s still a little [rubs hands together showing friction].”
“There must be, but I don’t know,” admitted Brzezinski. Then she went to a clip of Sen. [crscore]Barbara Boxer[/crscore]’s appearance on MSNBC from Monday where she said, “Elizabeth signed a letter that I circulated asking Hillary to run, and I think in her course of time she’s gonna come out there for Hillary.”
Scarborough asked Brzezinski, “What do you think?
Brzezinski said, “She’s waiting I guess to hear more, maybe. Maybe there’s been some concerns about Hillary’s ties to Wall Street and whether or not she truly would be able to be there for the middle class, and would stick to her word on some of these issues.”
