MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski torched President Donald Trump’s complaints about media coverage, and said he was solely to blame for negative reporting about his presidency.
The “Morning Joe” host said Trump’s plainly hateful language was impossible to cover without comment, and she said that was entirely his fault.
“The challenge for the media has been, sometimes, how to characterize the things that have come out of the president’s mouth, and the things that he’s done and said in a way that is as objective as possible,” Brzezinski said. “As right down the middle as possible, because some of them are so incendiary.”
“Some of the things he says are basically racist,” she added, “and it’s been difficult to just report on it because when you say what the president says, it sounds horrible. It’s not us — it’s him. He’s got a very extreme way of communicating his hatred.”

REVEALED: Russia carried out ‘stunning’ operation that hurt FBI’s ability to track its spies during 2016 election
Yahoo News is reporting that Russia carried out what is being described as a "stunning" operation in the United States that hampered the FBI's ability to track Russian spies during the 2016 presidential election.
According to Yahoo, Russia in 2016 made a technological breakthrough that allowed it to compromise the FBI's encrypted radio systems used by mobile surveillance teams who keep tabs on suspected Russian spies operating in the U.S. Russia even managed to compromise these teams' backup systems that consisted of cellphones with push-to-talk capabilities, thus further hindering the surveillance teams' ability to do their jobs.
There are some surprising reasons to be optimistic about America’s future
If stagnant wages, near-record inequality, climate change, nuclear buildups, assault weapons, mass killings, trade wars, opioid deaths, Russian intrusions into American elections, kids locked in cages at our border, and Donald Trump in the White House don’t at least occasionally cause you feelings of impending doom, you’re not human.
But I want you to remember this: As bad as it looks right now – as despairing as you can sometimes feel – the great strength of this country is our resilience. We bounce back. We will again.
First, come back in time with me to when I graduated college in 1968. That year, Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated. Robert F. Kennedy was assassinated. Our cities were burning.
