NBC’s Tom Brokaw harshly criticized University of California at Berkeley students during a Friday morning interview on MSNBC.

“I spent a lot of time on that campus,” he told the “Morning Joe” crew. “The violence you see here only feeds the beast.”


“It will only solidify the Trump followers in saying, ‘these are not people that I want to be associated with.’ This is not how you respond,” he continued. “They are supposed to be — they go to one of the great universities in the world. they are supposed to be privileged people at that university.

“They can’t hear somebody who comes and has a message that is completely contrary to what anybody else wants to hear but is allowed to speak on the campus? I think it’s outrageous, quite frankly, and I think it’s contrary to what they are attempting to do.”
