MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski called out President Donald Trump's reaction to his longtime attorney's guilty plea -- and she said he's getting terrible advice.

The "Morning Joe" co-host read aloud the president's tweet about Michael Cohen -- who implicated Trump in a criminal conspiracy -- moments after he posted the joke about his former lawyer's legal abilities.

"The guy that has been by his side to decades, the guy who was his closest partner, his friend that he likes very much, he is now throwing over, under and behind and in front of the bus," Brzezinski said.

She said the president needs to face reality about his legal situation and his current lawyer, Rudy Giuliani.

"When is someone in team Trump going to turn to the president and say, 'Sir, the emperor is naked and your attorney is drunk?'" Brzezinski said. "Like, at what point is someone going to tell the president the truth: 'The emperor has no clothes and, even worse, his attorney is a runaway beer truck.'"
