The set of “Morning Joe” was unimpressed with Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ White House press briefing on Wednesday, with Mika Brzezinski offering a blistering denunciation of it and launching a personal attack on Sanders.
“I really don’t understand Sarah Huckabee Sanders. I don’t get it. Some would say that you’re basically a flack for a misogynist who is a proud predator who brags about grabbing women by the genitals,” said Brzezinski. “As a woman in a powerful position, I’m sorry, you’re a complete disappointment. A complete disappointment.”
“There is absolutely no excuse for defending a president for mocking a victim of sexual misconduct … a woman who is suffering,” she continued. “You can’t say that’s wrong? You have been made rotten to the core by this presidency.”
After giving only one press briefing during September, Sanders spoke to reporters Wednesday where she faced withering questions over a multitude of pent up issues and the latest Trump outrage — his decision to mock Christine Blasey Ford during a rally in Mississippi on Tuesday.
It’s not the first time Brzezinski has taken the gloves off with Sanders over her defense of Trump. In December 2017, she also attacked the press secretary after Trump sent a sexually suggestive tweet about New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand.
“I want to know how she does that,” said Brzezinski, who also called Trump a “sexist pig.”

President Trump recently received a ton of criticism for sending out a pair of tweets about MSNBC's "Morning Joe" hosts “Psycho” Joe Scarborough and “low I.Q. Crazy” Mika Brzezinski.
“She was bleeding badly from a face-lift,” he wrote of an encounter with Brzezinski he claims he had in Florida weeks before his inauguration.
While nothing can justify the president mocking a woman's appearance, the "Morning Joe" duo have been attacking Trump for months.

“This is unprecedented, to have a president who behaves this way,” Brzezinski said on June 23. “It does feel like a developing dictatorship."
Brzezinski said what Bill Clinton was to sex, Trump is to "decency"
"What Bill Clinton did to the issue of sex to an entire generation, I believe this president is doing on issues of decency, on issues of conspiracy theories, on issues of fake news," Brzezinski said in June 15. "I think it's that simple and we're desensitized if we even argue it."
"If the president seems delusional about his accomplishments, you can point no further than that room," Brzezinski said in June 14. "There are no real men in the inner circle of the White House... none at all."
“Donald Trump, again, being a schmuck, thinking he can buy people’s integrity by inviting them over to the White House and wowing them,” Scarborough said on June 7 when discussing a dinner party at the White House. “That’s how he thinks. I know that first hand.”
Scarborough said Trump “is not a sane, rational human being”
“If any CEO, in a Fortune 500 company, was behaving this way, he or she would be removed immediately… they would take him out, he would have psychiatric evaluation and he would no longer be the CEO,” Scarborough said on June 6.
Scarborough called Trump a “bumbling dope” on May 11 because of the way a meeting with Russia’s Foreign Minister was handled.
“Looking at the front pages of the newspapers here… The Wall Street Journal also, you look, of course, at pictures. The shameful picture where the United States press corps was kept out but the Russians were allowed in,” Scarborough said while holding up the paper.
Scarborough slammed Trump on March 31, saying that Russians are lucky that POTUS is “stupid enough” to pick up their fake news.
“We’re obsessed on how the Russians have hacked, how the Russians have tried to impact this, how the Russians have tried to impact the White House,” Scarborough said. “We’re really just playing into their hands.”
