MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski agreed President Donald Trump seems to be losing his mind because the media won’t lie for him.
Brzezinski read aloud a couple of the president’s tweets, where he again singled out CNN for criticism and retweeted a bizarre conspiracy theory account that praised him.
“You know what? I’m sorry — this is where somebody on the set needs to say, Wow, that person seems unhinged, imbalanced and not fit to be president,” Brzezinski said. “He really seems out of his mind.”
Her “Morning Joe” co-host said the president’s attacks endangered American reporters working in countries like Russia and Turkey, whose leaders once feared retaliation for jailing U.S. journalists.
“That message hasn’t been sent by an administration that doesn’t even have ambassadors in these outposts and has now sent a message to tyrants from Turkey to Russia — do what you want with our reporters because we don’t like them,” Scarborough said. “We don’t believe them because they won’t kiss our ass every day on the air and spew propaganda 24 hours a day, and lie to our viewers about how they’re doing.”
“It’s now a stretch to say he’s fit,” Brzezinski said.
