MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski ripped “Fox & Friends” on Wednesday morning for the way it handled a Donald Trump phone interview about former Miss Universe Alicia Machado.
Brzezinski lost it following a clip of Trump calling into the Fox News morning show on Tuesday morning to double down on controversial comments that Hillary Clinton used against him during Monday’s presidential debate.
“That person was a Miss Universe person, and she was the worst we ever had. The worst. The absolute worst,” Trump told “Fox & Friends” hosts about Machado. “She gained a massive amount of weight. And it was a real problem.”
A visibly stunned Brzezinski’s responded, “That conversation went on; and no one said to him, ‘What? Excuse me, did you just say, what? Did you just say she gained a lot of weight and that was a problem?’ Well, I’ve never seen a more awkward interview in my life, and quite frankly, the most unfulfilling interview in my life.”
“How could they not ask him, how could two men and a women in this day and age, who know this world that we live in, not say, ‘That is incredibly inappropriate. Would you like to rephrase yourself?'” she continued.
Brzezinski’s co-host, Joe Scarborough eventually chimed in and said, “OK, OK, this is about Donald Trump… let’s focus on Donald Trump.”
Scarborough went on to call Trump’s comments “unbelievable.”
