Yes, they really are.

Wow.  We give Morning Joe hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski a tough time now and again, but every so often he really lands a knockout punch. This morning, after showing a clip of a Clinton spokesperson who suggested that no one would work to solve "the AIDS crisis" if the Clinton Foundation was no longer allowed to sell access to the highest levels of government, he opened up with both barrels.

...And not only was he 100% correct, he was 100% brutal. You're going to like this:

In case you can't hear the audio, Scarborough's rant goes like this:

"That is so pathetic, you all are not really that pathetic, are you? Are you really that pathetic? You're going to actually say that if Bill Clinton doesn't have the opportunity to shake down billionaires, that AIDS will not be cured?
 
I guess if we're keeping score at home, Barack Obama is Moses and has the ability to stop the tides from rising in our time. And Bill Clinton, shaking down billionaires in Kazakhstan, while doing deals on the side and getting down $550,000 for a one-hour speech — that's our only path forward to curing AIDS.

You're not really that pathetic, are you? Because if that's the best line of attack you have, you need to go back to middle school and start all over again."

Yes, Joe. They are that pathetic. Actually, they're way, way, more pathetic than that.  However, it's nice that you and your network have started to notice.

Kudos to you. Next time, do it to their face during an interview.
