New MSNBC Host Ronan Farrow: The Clintons ‘Represent a Style of Honesty That the Public Craves’

MSNBC’s latest hire, weekend host Ronan Farrow, appeared on The Cycle on Monday where he weighed in with his thoughts on a variety of political issues. Asked about President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s political prospects, Farrow said that the former first couple “represent a style of honesty the public craves.”

When Farrow was asked about the Clinton’s “evolution” on the issue of gay marriage, Farrow said that he thinks the public has viewed their shift in opinion as an honest and refreshing one.

“What do you think that evolution tells us about the ability to move from the ’90s to now,” Ari Melber asked.

“They’re nimble politicians,” Farrow replied. “And also they represent a style of honesty that the public craves right now. And that’s reflected in the numbers.”

He said that when a politician honestly changes their mind on a policy issue and explains that to the public, they are often embraced.
