MSNBC host Alex Wagner shed some light on dealing with the Clintons this morning on national TV:

Said Wagner, "Well, this is like -- the myth making and also the fear amongering around the Clintons -- like don't cross them otherwise a door in the floor opens up. Also they are the future of the Democratic party and incredibly accomplished."

Another MSNBC host jumped in, "So is that true? Is don't cross them or the door on the floor opens up?"

"I think there's been a lot of reporting about the lists they keep," said Wagner of the Clintons. "And we are led to believe that there is this Clinton Industrial Complex where names are kept, sins are recorded."

"That's true," others on set agreed.

Another MSNBC host would ask, "We're seeing this more and more. Some hesitancy among high-profile Democrats to not blindly get behind Hillary Clinton."
