‘Morning Joe’ Says Trump Is ‘Beyond Twisted’ for Calling Jan. 6 Rioters ‘Hostages’ During Ongoing Israeli Crisis | Video

Former Vice President Mike Pence also denounced the comparison as “unacceptable”

“Morning Joe” cohost Mika Brzezinski responded to Donald Trump calling Jan. 6 insurrectionists “hostages” on Monday, saying that it’s “beyond twisted for him to use that word” — especially considering the actual hostages still hanging in the balance during the ongoing Israel-Hamas conflict.

“Donald Trump, again the Republican frontrunner who’s clinched the nomination,” Brzezinski said after playing a clip from a weekend speech in Ohio in which the former president emphasized his intention to free individuals imprisoned for the Capitol riot in January 2021.

“One of the first things he’ll do in office is free the — and I say this in quotes — ‘hostages,’” Brzezinski said.
