Mika Brzezinski saw right through Donald Trump’s meeting with some Gold Star families, who he later bragged wrote him a campaign contribution check.
The co-host of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” said the meeting, like the rest of the Trump campaign, was a “scam” intended to dupe Americans into thinking he cared about anything beyond his own selfish interests.
“I’m just trying to — because, look, Trump supporters, people who support Donald Trump, are people who should be respected for how they feel,” Brzezinski, pausing frequently and her voice cracking with emotion. “But I worry that they don’t understand that they’re being scammed, and they’re being scammed by somebody who’s really good at it, so it’s not like, you know, it’s their fault. But I will say that it’s a scam, what Trump is selling.”
“Talking to Gold Star families after the biggest gaffe in probably presidential politics, candidacy’s history, what he did with the Khans — he’s just trying to clean up,” Brzezinski said. “I mean, do you want someone who speaks from the heart and says nothing or says anything, or do you want someone who speaks from the heart and has some principle behind it and sticks to his word? This is a scam, and it seems like he has a lot of followers.”
