“Paul Ryan does it. Mitch McConnell does it,” she joked with co-host Joe Scarborough. “A lot of republicans Pence all the time and it’s not pretty.”

Scarborough noted that he thinks “Mitch McConnell does it a lot less, a lot less, a lot less, than anybody else.”

“When you’re Pence-ing,” Brezezinski continued. “You’re schilling for your nominee even though deep inside you absolutely do not agree with anything says and he makes you sick but you don’t have the guts to say it because you’re afraid for your job and you don’t have the foresight to see that that’s ultimately going to hurt you in the long run.”

“That’s Pence-ing.”
