Joe Scarborough Rips Hillary Clinton for ‘Happy’ Faces at Benghazi Hearing

MSNBC ‘Morning Joe‘ host Joe Scarborough took to Twitter on Thursday evening to criticize former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s ‘happy’ demeanor during her day-long appearance before the House Select Committee on Benghazi.

Scarborough first retweeted a photo of Clinton with a wide, open-mouthed smile during a break in the hearing. Scarborough commented:

“The expressions of Secretary Clinton today are fascinating. One would not know the hearings involved 4 U.S. deaths.”

Scarborough followed with a tweet of his own with another picture of Hillary making an exuberant touchdown gesture in the hearing room with the comment:

“A happy Hillary at hearing. I’m not sure I’d be so ebullient at a hearing involving a U.S. Ambassador’s death.”

The four Americans murdered in the September 11, 2012 Islamist terrorist attack on U.S. facilities in Benghazi, Libya were U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods.

Scarborough is a former Republican congressman from Florida, serving from 1995 until he resigned his seat in 2001. He has been a host on MSNBC since 2003. Scarborough has hosted Morning Joe, which airs Monday through Friday, since 2007.
