Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol joined several regulars on MSNBC’s Morning Joe Tuesday to discuss the fallout of Sen. Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) opposing the Iran nuclear deal. The exchange got heated at multiple points between Kristol and liberal co-host Mika Brzezinski. “I mean, restarting talks with Iran. That’s ludicrous,” Brzezinski said.


Kristol rebutted President Obama’s claim that Republicans in Congress have opposed his policies every step of the way for political reasons. He pointed out GOP support for Obama’s Trans-Pacific Partnership trade promotion authority, the Afghanistan surge, and NSA intelligence collections. “On foreign policy when President Obama has done what Republicans agreed with, they’ve supported him,” Kristol said. “When he’s done what they and I don’t agree with, we’ve opposed him. It’s a policy difference. For President Obama to make it seem like this is just a knee-jerk reaction is silly.”


Kristol maintained the U.S. could still maintain sanctions that would keep the status quo and allow the U.S. to bring Iran back to the negotiating table.


Brzezinski did not appear impressed.
