MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski said new White House Communications chief Anthony Scaramucci’s comments to The New Yorker were “absolutely disgusting” but she’ll cut him some slack because they were directed at Steve Bannon.
“I’m not Steve Bannon, I’m not trying to suck my own c–k,” Scaramucci said about Trump’s chief strategist during a heated phone call with reporter Ryan Lizza.
“I can’t believe he said it. But he said it about Steve Bannon and he is in there for fire everybody, so let’s not kind of trip on ourselves here,” Brzezinski said. “Let’s watch the story.
Scaramucci also called Chief of Staff Reince Priebus “a f–king paranoid schizophrenic” during the phone call.
“He’s got his targets set on Reince Prebus and, it appears, Steve Bannon as well. Maybe he will make a big, good difference for this White House,”Brzezinski said.
Scaramucci essentially blamed the reporter for publishing his comments.
“I made a mistake in trusting in a reporter. It won’t happen again,” Scaramucci tweeted Thursday evening.
Ironically, Trump’s communications director once scolded someone on Twitter for using curse words, telling them: “I like the give and take as long as it is without the curse words, my kids are on this thing called Twitter!!”
Scaramucci admitted via social media on Thursday that, “I sometimes use colorful language. I will refrain in this arena but not give up the passionate fight,” for Trump’s agenda.
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.”
