Morning Joe Pretty Sure Chris McDaniel Is Guilty of Illegal Photography

As one of the creepiest political scandals of the 21st century unfolds, Morning Joe took a look at Mississippi Senate candidate Chris McDaniel’s recent interview with a local radio show, addressing the arrest of four people involved in the illegal photographing of his opponent’s bedridden wife.

The interview, featuring a stuttering, confused McDaniel, is painful to watch, and led the Joe team to the obvious conclusion: “Oh, god,” said Mika Brzezinski, “it’s hard to watch him clearly trying to figure out how to lie.”

After some other comparisons of McDaniel to the “sweaty defendants at the end of a Perry Mason episode,” they turned their attention to the bigger story. “This is really disgusting,” Gene Robinson agreed. “He obviously was searching for a story to tell, and couldn’t make up his mind how he was going to tell the story…he had an uphill struggle against [Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS)]. Maybe a chance to knock him off. I think that’s probably gone now.”
