MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski revealed that President Donald Trump’s biggest complaint about his job is that he no longer can watch pornography from his office.
The “Morning Joe” co-host stuck around Thursday for “MSNBC Live with Stephanie Ruhle” to speak with the attorney for Stormy Daniels to discuss insults against the former porn actress by Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani.
“The hypocrisy is astounding,” Brzezinski said. “Because I know someone who spoke to Donald Trump recently about life in the White House, and Donald Trump’s biggest complaint was that he’s not allowed to watch porn in the White House. So there you go, there’s a little bit of news for you.”
Ruhle laughed at the revelation about the president’s personal conduct, and cracked a joke.
“I bet they have those 1-900 numbers blocked, too, which must be a disappointment,” she said.
Brzezinski angrily lashed out at Giuliani several times during her program over his remarks, which she said could embolden other women to come forward to challenge the president over his past treatment.
Giuliani suggested that Daniels could not be credible because she was a sex worker, and attorney Michael Avenatti agreed he was a hypocrite.
“Any individual who has pornography should most certainly, you know, speak out against my client at all times and try to discredit her,” Avenatti said, sarcastically. “That would be — I don’t know how many people it would be, but it would be a very, very small group in the United States. The hypocrisy of a lot of these people is truly astounding.”
He said Giuliani’s comments were insulting to every woman, regardless of their personal views on pornography.
“I agree with Mika’s comments earlier today, I saw them and I agree 100 percent, Mika, with what you said,” Avenatti said. “The time has come for women to speak out. Let me say this, if Rudy Giuliani is not fired immediately by this president, it is an outrage, and it should send a message to every woman in America as to what this president thinks is acceptable. You know, if the ‘Access Hollywood’ tape was not enough, this should be enough.”
MSNBC guest goes off on Chris Matthews for comparing Sanders to Nazis: ‘He had kin murdered in the Holocaust’
Time magazine editor Anand Giridharadas criticized MSNBC host Chris Matthews over the weekend for his alleged bias against Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.
Giridharadas remarks came after Matthews compared Sanders' win in Nevada to a Nazi invasion.
"Last night was a historic win that I think a lot of us are still struggling to understand," Giridharadas explained. "It's historic because we may be seeing that we are paddling through a bend of a river in history here. Something is happening in America right now that actually does not fit our mental models."
‘Kiss Florida goodbye’: Voto Latino head warns Democrats of coming 2020 debacle
Appearing on MSNBC's "AM Joy," Voto Latino CEO María Teresa Kumar said Democrats should not count on taking Florida's 29 electoral votes in the upcoming 2020 presidential election if Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is the at the top of the ticket.
During a fairly contentious panel discussion on the viability of Sanders as a candidate due to self-identifying as a democratic socialist, Kumar claimed that would not play well Florida's Latino community.
"All I can think about when David [Corn] was unpacking it for us, we can all agree is you can kiss Florida goodbye," she explained. "I say that, Floridians -- Latinos that have fled socialism, they have fled and they are in Florida and they have sensibilities that are different from the rest of the Latino community."
CNN’s Bakari Sellers schools Rick Santorum over claim Trump is not part of the ‘extreme hard right’
During a panel discussion on CNN's State of the Union, contributor Bakari Sellers set fellow panelist Rick Santorum straight after he tried to claim that Donald Trump doesn't take far-right positions.
Following a discussion on Sen. Bernie Sanders' Nevada caucus win, Santorum tried to note the major differences between Trump and Sen. Bernie Sanders.
Responding to conservative commentator Linda Chavez who called both Sanders and Trump "two angry people," Santorum remarked, "I wanted to take issue with what Linda said: two angry folks representing the extremes, and I would agree with that, with Bernie Sanders, and he is representing, no question, the extreme of the Democratic Party and he says that he is a socialist and he is angry, I agree."
