With the news that Bernie Sanders crushed Hillary Clinton in Wyoming by 12 points, but will leave the state with four fewer delegates, Joe Scarborough wondered, “Why does the Democratic Party even have voting booths? This system is so rigged.”

After MSNBC “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski explained that Sanders defeated Clinton 56 percent to 44 percent Wyoming, his eighth win in the last nine nominating contests, Brzezinski sarcastically commented, “It sounds like he’s winning.” (RELATED: Rigged?

Scarborough commented, “I’ll tell you, I would not do well as a Democratic politician. He wins by 12 points, he may not even pick up a single delegate. It’s 7-6 with the remaining delegate to be decided later? I’m sorry, that’s a crushing victory.”

Panelist Nicolle Wallace commented that with the superdelegate system that the Democratic Party has, Clinton “only has to get 30 percent of the vote in the remaining contests. I mean, talk about voters feeling like a system might be rigged.” (VIDEO: CNN’s Tapper Challenges DNC Chair To Explain ‘Rigged’ Superdelegate System)

Brzezinski asked, “Why are you even voting in Wyoming?”

Amazed, Scarborough said, “Bernie Sanders wins 56 to 44 percent in Wyoming. The delegates rewarded Hillary: Clinton 11, Bernie Sanders 7. Why does the Democratic Party even have voting booths? This system is so rigged.”

Brzezinski agreed and Wallace added, “It feels that way.”
