MIKA BRZEZINSKI (CO-HOST): But Jen, I'm worried. Because Democrats, I get so frustrated watching them respond to Republican trigger antics like legislation in Florida, talking about sexuality. You can’t talk about sexuality if you have a classroom of kids from kindergarten to third grade. Are you kidding me? And you have people in Florida — and I completely — please don’t mischaracterize this, I completely feel the pain of someone who feels infringed upon because of that law and feels like their truth might not be being recognized and wants to stand up and talk about that and be brought to tears. I totally validate and respect that, but that’s not the response Democrats need to have in terms of fighting to win in the midterms. They’re getting triggered by this law and letting it bring them down publicly, instead of saying, what? Are you kidding me? You’re going to deny my truth? Let’s take what Joe just said. You’re gonna deny my truth? Let’s look at your truth and go right back at them with the freak show that has been the Republican Party for the past four years. A complete freak show. And it has literally given birth to more freaks in Congress, literal freaks who spew lies, who are cruel, who are bigoted, and who make their days worth it to themselves by going after conspiracy theories and being cruel. That’s the Republican Party today. Or living by lies. Finding a way to lie again, Kevin McCarthy. I mean, there’s so much to work with and, yet, they get caught on things and become emotional.
