Democratic National Committee Vice Chair, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN), did not seem eager to discuss Hillary Clinton during an interview on MSNBC’s Morning Joe on Friday.

Clinton slammed the DNC’s data infrastructure at CODECON on Wednesday and claimed that her campaign received little if any support from the DNC.

MSNBC contributor Katty Kay asked Ellison about Clinton’s comments.

“Well, let me tell you, man, we’re looking forward. We’re looking ahead, and the truth is, we do need to do some improving,” Ellison responded.

Ellison continued, “A little bit of criticism doesn’t hurt us. We need to take it seriously and move out on what we have learned.

“Shouldn’t she also take responsibility for what she did? She didn’t seem to,” Kay interjected.

“Let me tell you, Hillary Clinton is a wonderful American. I think she is a wonderful person that served this country, and we need everybody’s help to go inspire voters all over this country,” Ellison responded.

MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski wasn’t happy with Ellison’s answer to Kay’s questions.

“Yeah ,I know it’s a lot of platitudes. I’m interested in information, though,” Brzezinski interjected.

“It’s not platitudes,” Ellison retorted.

Brzezinski wasn’t having any of it though. “She says it was bankrupt, she says it was totally disorganized, she says it was a complete mess,” Brzeinski said. “Is that the case?”

“They didn’t give her anything,” Kay interjected, parroting Clinton’s remarks.

“They didn’t give her anything. Is that true?” Brzezinski asked.

“Let me tell you, you know, we can’t relitigate the past. You know,” Ellison started to dodge Brzezinski’s question.

Brzezinski attempted to interject, but Ellison was determined to give his non-answer, telling Brzezinski, “Seriously, let me finish my point.”

“I just don’t know what you said,” Brzezinski said after Ellison finished his answer.
