Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski defended Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) on Monday’s “Morning Joe” after House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) offered protection to the representative accused of sexual harassment.

The two hosts delivered a seven-minute-long monologue on Conyers’ importance in Congress and agreed with Pelosi’s assessment that Conyers was an “icon.” They also called for “due process” while trying to put the accusations in context.

“Thank you, Nancy Pelosi. Thank you,” Brzezinski said about Pelosi’s comments.

Scarborough listed Conyers’ accomplishments and praised the representative for his public service.

However, the two hosts also called for the representative to leave due to his old age, and they insinuated that his conduct may be a product of diminishing mental health.
