Mika Brzezinski: The Crazier Trump Acts, the Better for Joe Biden

MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski believes that President Donald Trump’s bizarre behavior could benefit former Vice President Joe Biden. During a Wednesday discussion of Democrats’ chances in 2020, the Morning Joe host contrasted Biden with the President’s frequently worrying actions.

“When you talk to the Biden people, it’s pretty clear that the seven or eight days straight in Iowa on his bus tour helped him enormously,” MSNBC’s Mike Barnicle said. “A lot of people got to see him up close, hear him, talk to him, touch him.”

“The other aspect of the Biden campaign’s progress in Iowa and elsewhere, they feel strongly, is that he contrasts vividly with what happens in Washington, D.C. You see a loud boisterous president every night on TV, calling FBI agents scum. Then you see the former vice president of the United States, competent, calm, reflective, familiar, and they gravitate towards him.”

“I just think the crazier the President acts, if you would consider his behavior crazy, the better for Biden,” Brzezinski said.

“Yes, big contrast,” Barnicle agreed.

“I think that’s the real equation that plays out,” Brzezinski said.

“What you hear from the Biden people in Iowa and elsewhere and you hear it in you just walk around, you know this, people — A lot of people just want this country calmed down,” Barnicle said.

“They know something’s wrong, at the very least, even if they’re worried about other things, understandably,” Brzezinski said.
