Hard to believe something like this was said out loud, let alone on national television, but yes, it’s true.
Mika Brzezinski, host of the show Morning Joe, was talking about how she feels that President Donald Trump has “undermined the message so much” that media will no longer be able to do their job and “control what people think.” In a shocking discussion with Charles “Joe” Scarborough, Brzezinski accuses President Trump of making up facts and stealing the media’s job.
BRZEZINSKI: “Well, I think that the dangerous, you know, edges here are that he is trying to undermine the media and trying to make up his own facts. And it could be that while unemployment and the economy worsens, he could have undermined the messaging so much that he can actually control exactly what people think. And that, that is our job.”
SCARBOROUGH: “Exactly. That is exactly what I hear. What Yamiche said is what I hear from all the Trump supporters that I talk to who were Trump voters and are still Trump supporters. They go, ‘Yeah you guys are going crazy. He’s doing — what are you so surprised about? He is doing exactly what he said he is going to do.‘”
