Joan Walsh On Defending Weiner: "I Look Kind Of Stupid"

In a surreal segment, MSNBC host Ed Schultz takes on three of his ideological colleagues over whether Rep. Anthony Weiner should resign. Joan Walsh admits she was "stupid" to defend Weiner and give him the benefit of the doubt. Transcript below:

JOAN WALSH, SALON.COM: The lying is what disturbs me. He implicated a lot of us. I gave him the benefit of the doubt, let's just say that. And, you know, I look kind of stupid. But on the other hand, this was brought to light for political reasons --

ED SCHULTZ, MSNBC: Why do you look stupid? Why do you say that?

WALSH: Oh, because I, you know, gave him the benefit of the doubt publicly and pointed to the motivations of the people who were bringing this to light which was to destroy him.
