MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski said she isn’t sure if all women should be believed, and noted that one of Sen. Al Franken’s accusers is a Trump supporter.
Friday’s “Morning Joe” crew was discussing Franken’s resignation over a sexual harassment scandal, and Brzezinski argued that there may be some “politics” at play with his first accuser, Leeann Tweeden.
“We’ve never really talked about the woman who first came out against Al Franken,” Brzezinski said. “[She is] a performer, Playboy model who goes on Hannity. Who voted for Trump.”
“You know, I see some politics there but I haven’t brought that up every step of the way because, of course, in this #MeToo environment, you must always just believe the women,” she explained. “I think there’s a lot of reasons why we need to look at the women seriously and believe them.”
Brzezinski asserted that she believes the accusers of her friend Mark Halperin, but wondered if it is always right to believe the women that accuse men of sexual misconduct.
“I’m just wondering if all women need to be believed,” she explained, “and I am concerned that we are being the judge, the jury, and the cops here, and so did Senate Democrats getting ahead of their skis.”
