MSNBC Panel Mocks Hillary For Wearing An ‘Orange Jumpsuit’ While Under Investigation

'Why is she dressing exactly like Mao Zedong?'


Hillary Clinton’s choice of clothing color came under fire on Friday when the Morning Joe panel ridiculed the Democrat for wearing orange at her Tuesday events in Nevada.

"Why is she dressing exactly like Mao Zedong?" Donnie Deutsch said to the horror of Mika Brzezinski.

Panelists Chuck Todd and Chris Cillizza watched in silent disapproval, as Republican strategist Alex Castellanos appeared to enjoy the banter.

"Look at what she’s wearing," Deutsch said. "Mao Zedong and Hillary, it’s the same dressing."

The comparison to the Chinese communist revolutionist was not the only slight to Clinton. Host Joe Scarborough took issue with her wearing an "orange jumpsuit," pointing out the irony that her ensemble looked like a typical prison uniform.

"I certainly wouldn’t if I were talking about something that could actually get the feds and the FBI looking at me closer," Scarborough said.

Brzezinski got upset enough that she threw water at Deutsch.

Clinton is currently under a criminal investigation by the FBI for keeping classified information on an unsecure private server.
