Townhall -- After Mika Brzezinski's "Morning Joe" appearance Friday, she spoke with InStyle magazine about President Trump and her belief that his tweets suggest that he's mentally unstable.
Brzezkinski was asked about Melania Trump and her battle against cyber bullying and replied:
I know Melania. I haven’t talked to her in months, but if my gut is right, I don’t think she’s going to put up with it much longer. I know nothing. That’s just my instinct and I go with my gut and my gut’s always right. I’m just telling you, Melania’s got the worst job in the country and I don’t think she wants do it a lot longer. I think she will do it for as long as she has to for her son, and that’s it.There are a lot of assertions in that paragraph. The comments are the equivalent of a "bless her heart" dismissal of the First Lady and her defenses of her husband. Mika prefaces it by saying she hasn't talked to her in months and knows nothing, notes that Melania has a very difficult job, then drops the juicy part. Because of Mika's supposed personal knowledge of the First Lady and her infallible gut, we're supposed to give this "she's only staying for the kids" rumor a lot of weight.
She's gossiping, plain and simple. It's similar to when people start a conversation by saying, "I'm really concerned about so-and-so," then repeat some scandalous, juicy bit. But it's in the guise of helping them, so it's okay, right? In the same vein, Mika's attempting to dismiss Melania because she's just going along to get along.
When asked about the remarks by the Daily Mail, Melania's office issued a statement from the First Lady:
'It is sad when people try to further their own agenda by commenting on me and my family, especially when they don't know me."Exactly!
Blog Author's Comments: Classy First Lady Melania Trump, brushes off Mika Brzezinski like a piece of lint. All this from Brzezinski was another attempt to jab the president with a shot at his family. She no doubt discussed this with her partner prior to putting it out. People who are insignificant often try to 'name drop' to make themselves seem more important. This Mika is the one with the mental health issues. Here is the adulterer trying to deflect her own disgusting lowlife. She deserves "crazy Joe" Scarborough because they both are media whores for a pathetic show on MSNBC.
Perhaps there is no better window on the awfulness of the self-appointed New York-to-DC ruling class than MSNBC’s Morning Joe. The show revolves around a collection of chattering-class bores who devote the start of their day to seconding each other’s shallow and smug criticisms of Trump. The women make faces; the men roll their eyes. Co-host Mika Brzezinski is a feminist who lectures other women on the need to show firmness in a man’s world. Yet she spends most of the show acting like a prim, entitled Victorian-era kook on a fainting couch. She grips her chair for balance while she makes faux-terrified faces, then turns to “Joe” for guidance on how to address this or that Trump “outrage.”
Brzezinski is just another in a long line of phony, catty female news mannequins, but not even up to the caliber of Megyn Kelly, Diane Sawyer or Barbara Walters. So when you have low IQ Joe and crazy Mika, it is really difficult to not comment on them, so I can understand the president's tweets aimed at them after what they said about him. But, they are not worth his time and now he should let it go and ignore them. He should have had someone from his office respond to them rather than himself. All he is doing is helping their ratings for the low-information viewers and anti-Trumpers who actually watch and believe what is said on this so-called show.
Mika Brzezinski can pretend to have the moral high ground but the more mud she flings, not just at Trump but now his wife, the more she exposes herself as petty and unworthy of the national stage. Trump and Melania should let her burn out, and ignore her from now on. I am tired of this story and tired of this "news reporter" not many have even heard of before this week. If it weren't for Trump she would still be nothing but a lying, biased reporter no one with any sense listens to. She should be thanking the president for making her a household name.
Quote For The Day: It has been thought that the unmasking of former Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn and the opening of an FBI investigation of all things Russia in which Flynn was a prime target was retaliation for Flynn’s drumbeat of criticism of the foreign policy of an Obama administration he once served.
The unmasking of Flynn in the Russia probe may indeed be retaliation against Flynn for perceived political sins, but not for what and by whom you might think if reports from the investigative watchdog site Circa News are correct. It seems Michael Flynn and Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe have a past and McCabe a possible motive against Flynn. -- By Daniel John Sobieski
