Mika Brzezinski may not have been the smartest girl at Williams College. She may not be the smartest girl at MSNBC. She may not even be the smartest girl on “Morning Joe,” co-hosted by her hubby-to-be Joe Scarborough, who quite frankly does her a disservice every time he allows her to begin unscripted rants. Talk about misogyny! Woo!
Mediaite a little under two years ago decided to publish a piece about the MSNBC show and was not kind. But the opening words were somewhat silly:
All successful shows eventually go downhill. Sometimes familiarity breeds contempt. Sometimes a reboot or addition (or subtraction) is needed to bring some much needed energy to a set. And in cable news, all of this specifically applies to MSNBC’s Morning Joe, once described as “revolutionary” by Time magazine and once ranked as the top news program on television by the New York Times back in 2008.
Time magazine describing “Morning Joe” as revolutionary is the equivalent of Bill Clinton describing Monica Lewinsky as “a super-capable intern.” The New York Times ranking it as the “top news program on television” is just like saying that Jim Acosta puts on a “brave face” whenever he leaves the house to go to work! You literally can almost here the NYT editors snickering uncontrollably as they were writing that ranking list.
The latest ratings for the show are not good. “Morning Joe” is 28th on the overall list of cable news shows, coming in behind Rachel Maddow's show (which is doing gangbusters), Last Word, All In, Hardball, 11th Hour, MTP Daily and Deadline: White House. It even, believe it or not, comes in behind Rachel Maddow's repeats!
But that doesn't deter the soldiers at “Morning Joe” marching onward. Mika had a particular foaming-at-the-recently-enhanced-mouth moment when she opted to not talk about some important news out of Europe or the Middle East, but rather to rave about, who else, Donald John Trump (with special emphasis on “John” just for Keith Olbermann).
It was not immediately clear what set Trump off. About two hours before his tweets, Brzezinski said on the show that “it's not normal behaviour ” for any leader to be tweeting about people's appearances or to be bullying, lying, undermining managers and throwing people under the bus.
She said that if any business executive behaved the way Trump does, “there would be concern that perhaps the person who runs the company is out of his mind.”
You see, following her highly-rated and profound [snorting] remarks, Trump did what he always does. He hit back.
“I heard poorly rated @Morning Joe speaks badly of me (don't watch anymore). Then how come low I.Q. Crazy Mika, along with Psycho Joe, came … to Mar-a-Lago 3 nights in a row around New Year's Eve, and insisted on joining me. She was bleeding badly from a face-lift. I said no!”

In response, good old Joe suggested from their penthouse that she unlock the Cheerios Curios Cabinet and removed the mounted cereal box that states, “Made for little hands,” and post a photo of it on Twitter…which she, of course, complied with because she's practicing being a good “kept” former-Republican wife.

As Yahoo News got a hold of the story, they immediately published their version, the thrust already having been pre-approved by the editorial staff and senior reporter, Katie Couric, and went right to press. In it, they quoted a source at NBC:
“It's a sad day for America when the president spends his time bullying, lying and spewing petty personal attacks instead of doing his job,” NBC News spokeswoman Lorie Acio said in a statement.
Only one problem. Lorie Acio isn't the NBC News spokeswoman. She's the Senior Communications Manager at MSNBC. And if some of you out there are saying, “Same thing!”, I submit to you that NBC staff would vehemently disagree. The privileged and elite-minded NBC staff and anchors have disavowed being part of MSNBC long ago. That comparison makes them bristle with anger. I had a friend who worked at NBC Studios in NYC and he told me, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that NBC staffers look at MSNBC like Barack Hussein Obama looked at his half-brother, Malik Obama, in Kenya. But we must remember that when Yahoo News tries to validate a story (or to make it sound more professional and important than it actually is) they dare not use the network MSNBC in any description. Therefore, Lorie Acio, was bumped up to NBC in order to make her remarks all the more insightful.
All in all, Trump has been thwarting the Leftist press, from driving the CNN people (all the way up to Jeff Zucker) out of their fake-news gourds to the mainstream press in general, and keeping them securely in therapy for the better part of the next decade.
Once the smoke clears on this one (probably tomorrow, unless CNN does an in-depth journalistic investigation into the real plastic surgery of Mika, or runs serious examinations into the Mar-A-Lago visitation list) then we'll clear the news slate for the next set of “scandalous stories” that are already written from now until next month.
P.S. I don't hear a damned thing about Joy Behar insulting Melania Trump from the Left. Yeah.
