JOE SCARBOROUGH: It shows his complete and total ignorance of American political history to say there's never been vetting like this. You look at Hillary Clinton -- and by the way, she deserves everything she's gotten from this table.

MIKA BRZEZINSKI: But she has been completely raked over the coals.

SCARBOROUGH: We have raked Hillary over the coals--

BRZEZINSKI: And she keeps coming--

SCARBOROUGH: --nonstop day in and day out and we've done it here searching for the truth. All right. You look at George W. Bush, the National Guard story. They went after Bush there. Joe Biden, again, like I said before when he ran in '88. Look at Bill Clinton. You know, Jon Meacham, Bill Clinton back in 1992, we heard that he had visited the USSR; that was something swirling around forever. Barack Obama, Barack Obama didn't get it with Jeremiah Wright? How many times did we talk and how many times did the national media talk about him saying “God damn the United States of America” the day after or the Sunday after 9/11? I mean, we all know that. We all heard about Bill Ayers. We all heard about everything with Barack Obama. Ben Carson has been given cotton candy and treated to lollipops by the mainstream media.
