The difference between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton is that he's a "tree shaker" and she's a "jelly maker," an animated Donna Brazile told MSNBC on Monday, while calling on Clinton to look to the future in the first 2016 presidential debate.
"He's a tree shaker, you know, we know people like Donald Trump," Brazile, who became interim chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee after the resignation of Debbie Wasserman Schultz this summer, told MSNBC's "Morning Joe" program.
"Donald Trump is one of those guys that can get up on a tree and just shake it, shake it. He's a disrupter, yeah, and that's fine."
But the key for Monday night's debate and for Clinton is to "talk about the future."
"This election is about the future it's not about Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton," Brazile told the program. "It's about the future. Reach out to those millennials."
That means talking about topics such as climate change, the environment, criminal justice reform and more.
"If she pivots to the future and makes sure that she is inclusive ... we are a country that can do great things when we work together," Brazile said.
Also during the segment, show co-host Mika Brzezinski found herself mocking Clinton for yelling during public appearances, including flailing her arms about to make her point about the Democratic nominee's demeanor.
"What she needs to do is, she has her lists, she has her long lists of accomplishments and all of these things. I wouldn't get all hyped up," Brzezinski said.
Brzezinski continued saying Clinton needs go through her qualifications one by one but that her tone needs to be just right.
"Her tone has to completely own it. Like this," Brzezinski said in a calm voice, but "not like this!" she exclaimed, waving her arms about.
