MSNBC opinion host Mika Brzezinski was mocked on Wednesday after launching into a live on-air rant over President Donald Trump’s tweets aimed at her husband, co-opinion host Joe Scarborough.
“Aside from the fact that most believe that this president has botched this crisis from the get-go, and this will be known in history, worldwide, as a human catastrophe he could have prevented and he’s trying to deflect at all times,” Brzezinski claimed without evidence. “Willie and Mike, he’s tweeting again all sorts of crazy things, once again tweeting conspiracy theories about Joe, falsely accusing him of murder, talking about the death of a young staffer in his congressional office years ago, and calling him dangerous to walk the streets.”
“I’ll just say, I take a point of personal privilege here,” Brzezinski continued. “That’s sick. Donald, you are a sick person. You are a sick person. To put this family through this, to put her husband through this, to do this just because you’re mad at Joe, because Joe got you again today because he speaks the truth and speaks plainly about your lack of interest and empathy in others and your lack of ability to handle this massive human catastrophe, the fact that you have made it worse and that you make it worse every day and that you won’t even wear a mask to protect people from your germs.”
Brzezinski was referencing recent tweets by Trump citing a “cold case” he suggested involved Scarborough. “When will they open a Cold Case on the Psycho Joe Scarborough matter in Florida,” Trump tweeted last week. “Did he get away with murder? Some people think so. Why did he leave Congress so quietly and quickly? Isn’t it obvious? What’s happening now? A total nut job!” Trump’s “cold case” claim is a reference to a member of then-Congressman Scarborough’s staff being found dead at his Florida office in July 2001 from what authorities determined to be head trauma suffered when the staffer lost consciousness on account of a blood clot. Scarborough was in D.C. at the time and no foul play was suspected.
