Tom Brokaw Slams Rioting Liberals at Berkeley: ‘Outrageous,’ Anti-Free Speech

Veteran journalist Tom Brokaw on Friday had some surprisingly tough words for rioting liberals at the campus of UC Berkeley, calling it “outrageous” that they would encourage violence over a speaker they didn’t agree with. Appearing on Morning Joe, Brokaw also heaped praise on Judge Neil Gorsuch as “distinguished” and wondered why Democrats were picking a fight. Regarding the riots at Berkeley, Brokaw derided, “They go to one of the great universities in the world. They are privileged people at that university and they can’t hear somebody who comes and has a message that is” unpopular. He scolded the protesters “I think it’s outrageous, quite honestly.”
