‘That’s not funny’: MSNBC’s Mika shreds Jeff Sessions for ‘chilling’ joke about baby jails

Published

MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski blasted Attorney General Jeff Sessions for his “chilling” joke about ripping apart immigrant families.

The U.S. attorney general defended the controversial policy with attempts at humor while speaking at the conservative Criminal Justice Legal Foundation’s annual luncheon, and the “Morning Joe” co-host slammed everyone involved.

“That’s just not funny,” Brzezinski said. “Why were they laughing? What’s going on?”

She smacked Sessions for offering shifting explanations and justifications for the policy he enacted, and then later denied.

“(We’ve) got a lot of different versions of Jeff Sessions, first announcing the policy, then saying, well, he didn’t want families to be separated, and then joking about families being separated at the border,” Brzezinki said. “It’s not funny.”

The jokes about ripping families apart and jailing them separately went over well with the conservative crowd, which horrified Brzezinski.

“It’s chilling that they were laughing and clapping,” she said.

"When it is going south you put gibberish on the air not to confuse people," said panelist Donny Deutsch, "all of a sudden it's just this noise that's not as distracting that makes you lightheaded."

Following Rudy Giuliani's extraordinary appearance on CNN on Thursday night, where he may have admitted the commission of a crime, the hosts of CNN's "New Day" compiled a timeline linking the approximate date of Trump's phone call that was flagged by a whistleblower to subsequent events involving Ukraine.

According to the timeline, presented by hosts John Berman and Alisyn Camerota, Trump spoke with the president of Ukraine on July 25, with Giuliani meeting with him later that month.

What followed was the August 12 whistleblower complaint and then Trump blocking aide to Ukraine by the end of the month.
