Morning Joe: Hillary Clinton Book Tour ‘A Disaster’

MSNBC's Morning Joe panel agreed: Hillary Clinton's book rollout has not gone well.

"It was a disaster," said panelist Donny Deutsch.

Clinton's book, Hard Choices, was called "cautious mush" by frequent MSNBC guest Mark Halperin, and she did not help matters with her interviews.

Among the lowlights included Clinton snapping at a National Public Radio host when questioned on her shifting views on gay marriage and her remarks that she and President Bill Clinton were "dead broke" when they left the White House in 2000 and struggled to pay for their "houses."

Clinton also told NBC the five Taliban commanders freed in exchange for Bowe Bergdahl were not a threat to the United States, a rather preposterous claim given intelligence predictions that four of them will wage war again with the U.S. at the first opportunity.

"How do you have a book that you know is coming out and you have it all planned, and you're not in the middle of a presidential campaign, and how is it–you just said it was ‘a disaster and you love Hillary–she's even getting in fights with liberal NPR hosts," said host Joe Scarborough. "Like really uncomfortable fights. What happened?"

"Is this a precursor to Hillary fatigue?" Deutsch asked. "Do people want to change the channel at this point and is this the first episode?"
