Heidi Heitkamp’s brother and de-facto campaign spokesman Joel continued his auditions for a spot on MSNBC this morning, and it’s safe to say it didn’t go well.
First, when forced to answer for Heidi Heitkamp outing sexual assault victims without their consent, Joel said people had accepted her apology and moved on:
REALITY CHECK: Victims of Heitkamp said her actions “downright ruined our lives.” Many of the victims didn’t hear from Heidi, and the ones who did said a mere phone call was insufficient.
But Joel didn’t stop there. When asked about his sister being down in the polls, Joel bragged about having access to her internal polling and lashed out at MSNBC’s Steve Kornacki:
Kornacki, for his part, took the high road and called it like it is: team Heitkamp just doesn’t want to admit they’re behind.
LET’S BE CLEAR: Though it’s clearly not going well, Joel Heitkamp is going on MSNBC to look for a job because he expects Heidi to lose. If he plans to keep making comments like these, Heidi should start looking, too.
