‘Morning Joe': Mika Brzezinski Calls Trump ‘Mentally Ill’ (Video)

MSNBC morning show host finds some agreement with a North Korean official

On the set of “Morning Joe” Thursday, co-host Mika Brzezinski bluntly declared that she agreed with a North Korean official’s assessment that President Donald Trump is “mentally ill.”

“They’re saying what a lot of people are thinking,” said Brzezinski.  “The president is mentally ill.”

“I was going to say, Mika, you’ve got a mind meld with some people in North Korea,” joked her co-host and fiancé, Joe Scarborough.

Brzezinski continued a nasty monologue that also impugned Trump’s intelligence.

“You think about the missions we have in places like Niger and there is no way President Trump has the intellectual capacity to even understand what we are doing,” she said. “Which I think brings the possibility of war even closer to the forefront. I think we’re in a very dangerous place. I think the president is a very dangerous man because of his lackings.”

It’s far from the first time speculation about Trump’s mental health has been featured on set.

Both hosts have taken heat in the past for spending air time on the subject. In recent months, Scarborough has made a show of shutting down the subject when the conversations veers in that direction.
