'Morning Joe' co-host Mika Brzezinski reacts to the first presidential debate Monday night at Hofstra University.
"I think, probably, we all think Hillary won," Brzezinski said in the 6 a.m. hour Tuesday. "But my blood pressure kept going up throughout the whole thing — I could not stop watching until the very end because there was something that was telling me he’s going to do quite well out of this, and I can’t quite put my finger on it. He was not as bad as you would expect him to be."
"I think he said things that touch on not just what primary voters think, but what people are thinking on a number of levels. I just wouldnt be surprised if he came out doing better in the polls after this," she said. "And she was not as great as she could have been."
