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.”

Congresswoman criticizes Republican press guy for claim Black folks don’t care about Kamala Harris: Does he know any?
Rep. Karen Bass (D-CA) hilariously mocked former press secretary Ari Fleischer, who worked for former President George W. Bush's White House. Fleischer claimed Black people won't be that excited about Sen. Kamala Harris on the ticket.
"She's just not that historically exciting to African-Americans," said Fleischer speaking to Laura Ingraham during a Fox News appearance after the announcement.
During a conversation with MSNBC's Joy Reid, the host called Fleischer "a sort of a bygone era Republican voice" and asked Bass to listen to his comments.
"I wonder how many African-Americans," asked Bass, chuckling.
