Proof that Republicans will never ever get a fair shake on MSNBC. On Tuesday, President Obama launched his dishonest “Equal Pay Day” play despite the fact that his own White House doesn’t pay women and men equally. Obama’s move forced the Republicans to respond, which is why he made the move in the first place, and it was only natural that elected Republican women would lead the charge. They see the cynicism and hypocrisy of a White House that is so desperate that it will exploit women and try making victims of them.
On Morning Joe today, they played a sequence of those women speaking out against Obama. These are women who hold elected positions in Congress. Mika Brzezinsky, given a network job because she is the daughter of a famous Democrat, calls those independently elected Republican women “hostages.”
