MSNBC: 'Hard to Believe' People Attack Hillary for Still Crying over Election Loss
'It’s just so extraordinarily moving'
MSNBC's “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough defended twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's emotional video where she read the speech she would have given if she had not lost the 2016 election to Donald Trump.
Clinton received backlash for getting emotional about losing in 2016.
Scarborough said Clinton's clip was “so extraordinarily moving,” and he finds it “hard to believe that anyone could find criticism and cynically attack someone” for exposing their souls as Clinton did.
“[I] t’s just so extraordinarily moving,” Scarborough stated.
“I find it hard to believe that anyone could find criticism and cynically attack someone, again, exposing themselves and their soul the way Secretary Clinton did there."
"And, you know, we all learn, the older you get, you learn that character is defined more not in victory, but in defeat — how you brush yourself off, pick yourself up, move on," he added.
"And your character is sharpened and defined so much more in defeat.”
“I know that there are going to be so many people that are going to see this, who are going through their own battles, their own defeats, whether it’s the loss of a loved one or a setback at work, in employment, in personal relationships, and they’ll be able to look at this, and it’s going to provide them strength.”
During the video, she dramatically intoned the words never heard because of the triumph of President Trump.
"My fellow Americans, today you sent a message to the whole world," she began.
"Our values endure. Our democracy stands strong. And our motto remains: e pluribus unum. Out of many, one.”
“We will not be defined only by our differences."
