MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski warns 'woke' Democrats 'you're eating your young' with Biden controversy

MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski is once again defending former Vice President Joe Biden after a second woman said he made her feel uncomfortable with unwanted touching.

The Morning Joe co-host during a Tuesday discussion about the latest allegation said that the situation is "ridiculous" and the "conversation has gotten out of control" because Biden is a "nice guy" and "not a predator," per Mediaite.

"And Democrats and those on the left who want to tweet me today and go nuts and get all woke, you're eating your young," she said. "You're eating those who can beat Trump. You're killing the very people who have been pushing women ahead."

This came after a former congressional aide said that Biden "put his hand around my neck and pulled me in to rub noses with me" at an event. Previously, a former Nevada assemblywoman said Biden grabbed her and kissed her on the back of the head without permission.

Brzezinski also said that the "mob needs to cut it out" and argued the whole situation should not be earning so much media coverage because the women say the incidents were "not sexual." She asked, "so what was it? Affectionate? And they didn't like the affection? I don't know what line we're drawing here ... This is not where #MeToo wants to go." Watch the Morning Joe segment below.
