Watch Mika Brzezinski’s amazing emotional takedown of Mike Huckabee over his Nazi ‘oven’ comment
MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski choked up on Monday as she declared that Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee was not fit to run the country because he had compared President Barack Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran to ovens that were used by Nazis in the Holocaust.
During an interview with the conservative media outlet Breitbart News over the weekend, Huckabee had accused the Obama administration of being “naive” on foreign policy.
“This president’s foreign policy is the most feckless in American history. It is so naive that he would trust the Iranians,” the former Arkansas governor charged. “By doing so, he will take the Israelis and march them to the door of the oven.”
Brzezinski could not contain her shock as she read the comments for the first time on the Monday edition of Morning Joe.
“Oh God,” she said, sounding physically repulsed. “I had not read it until this moment and I am horrified.”
Later in the morning, Morning Joe paused their regular programming to allow Brzezinski to address the remarks.
“Here’s the response that I have to Huckabee’s comments. If you’ve been to Auschwitz, if you’ve been to Birkenau, if you’ve been to any of these places where people were killed and you see the piles of glasses, the piles of hair, the piles of shoes and the piles of clothes,” she said as she began to choke up. “And every bit of their humanity that had to be stripped away, handed over as they went and burned to their deaths among other things, it’s really not a good comment to say.”
“It’s a deal breaker!” Brzezinski gasped. “It should be over for him. You don’t say that. And by the way, if you said it by mistake, that’s a sign of who you really are.”
“That’s all I have to say. You wanted me to say it on the air. I just did.”
