Mika plays the soundbite from House Majority Leader, Kevin McCarthy, where he admitted the Benghazi hearings were drummed up as a witch hunt to discredit her and make her appear 'untrustable.' Nevermind that faux pas, what's more important is that it's so fun to laugh at the Democratic front runner, Secretary Clinton, even when it is openly admitted that there has been a calculated witch hunt leveled against her to make her seem less trustworthy.
It doesn't matter what is done to the highly qualified Democratic candidate, she is suspicious, calculating and guilty of something. That's the mood at the Morning Joe yakker table, where the only one defending Hillary is a meek Mika who is easily dominated by the Republican men who disregard her as they do all of the females on the planet. She's inferior and irrelevant, and very incapable of making her own healthcare choices.
The Republican leadership has been very politically disciplined, according to sycophant, John Heilemann, and this is just so antithetical to how well the Republicans have conducted themselves by legitimizing the whole charade. Kevin McCarthy is just a hiccup in their elaborately Machiavellian scheme, one that enchants Heilemann.
When Hillary said that the Benghazi Inquisition was 'deeply distressing,' Joe said that
'everyone in the studio exploded laughing because it is so calculated!'
Mika unsuccessfully tries to coax Joe Scar into admitting that Clinton has been absolutely right in this case. She's correct about all the insults and the fake scandal, but Scarborough only wanted to discuss the blunder by Kevin McCarthy. Hillary is just capitalizing on his mistake, and she can't possibly experience true human emotions like dismay and distress. Her innocence is inconsequential.
Picking up on his complete disrespect for Hillary Clinton as a human being, Heilemann added,
'To be clear, the reason that I laughed was because she's saying she's deeply dismayed when in fact, this is like the best possible news when this is like a birthday present and a Christmas present all wrapped into one and dropped in her lap. So as she's saying she's deeply distressed and dismayed in fact she's skipping through the park inside. That was what I found funny. '

WILLIE GEIST: 'Kevin McCarthy walked out and put the ball on the T for Secretary Clinton, and her eyes got big and she crushed it.'
Do you understand now? Secretary Clinton is incapable of having human emotions when Republicans reveal themselves, accidentally, to be in collusion to smear this candidate at the expense of four people who tragically died. She is only capable of cold, calculating manipulation. She is, after all, a Democrat and a female, so we know she has the wrong female traits which include the ability to think for herself, ambition and a backbone. Of course she should be mocked ad nauseum.
None of her credibility matters. The only issue that is close to Joe's heart is that Kevin McCarthy, by revealing the truth, made an unforgivable blunder. Instead of obfuscating the truth, he revealed it, and that's taboo. Hillary is still a 'b' word to these guys, and she can never, ever change that.
