On the August 10 edition of Morning Joe, host Mika Brzezinski criticized opponents of the Iran deal and defended President Obama’s harsh rhetoric. She claimed that supporting the deal was a “no-brainer” because, in her mind, there are no alternatives. The Morning Joe personality lauded the president for “being sharp” in trying to gain support for the deal.
Brzezinski continued by backing up the president’s assertion that the decision to support or oppose the deal is a simple one: “I know you call him vilifying, but he's saying it's an easy choice because the question is, what are the options if the deal gets voted down? What happens if it doesn't go through? Not, what deal could you have written six months ago?”
