During the first presidential debate, MSNBC contributor and Hillary Clinton supporter Howard Dean tweeted, “Notice Trump sniffing all the time. Coke user?”
After the debate, Dean went on MSNBC and stood by his accusation refusing to apologize for it.
The panel on Morning Joe, a show which often features Dean, was stunned at the former Vermont governor’s tweet and that he refused to apologize for those comments.
“What in the world is going on there? We know Howard. We like Howard. What in the world is going on? A doctor diagnosing a coke problem because a guy was sniffing?” Joe Scarborough exclaimed.
“How stupid is this?” Scarborough shouted, adding that he thinks an apology is in order.
“If a Trump surrogate said something like that–” Bloomberg’s Mark Halperin started to say.
“We would go crazy,” interjected co-host Mika Brzezinski.
Scarborough added that if a Trump surrogate made a similar comment, he or she “would get killed.”
Halperin then noted that, due to his status as a Clinton campaign surrogate, the former Secretary of State’s campaign should be asked if Dean’s comments were appropriate.
