MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski wants America’s enemies to know that “now” is the “moment to act.”
During a bizarre segment Monday on “Morning Joe,” The Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg argued that America’s adversaries are “confused” by President Donald Trump’s “unpredictable behavior.”
“Adversaries right now might look at us and say, we don’t know what the hell they’re going to do because this President is completely unpredictable. Their intelligence agencies are trying to analyze our moves, and can’t understand them,” Goldberg began, which is actually a good point.
Brzezinski was not confused, and appeared to be informing America’s enemies that now is the time to strike.
“I would take it a step further and worry we look weak, and that this is the moment that anybody with ill will has to act, or to get further than they have been able to get in the past, as it pertains to us on the national stage,” Brzezinski said.
“Right,” Goldberg responded, with absolutely no push back at all to her disgraceful comments.
Last month, Brzezinski used a homophobic slur live on-air after she was triggered by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s “response” to the murder of reporter Jamal Khashoggi.
After playing a clip of an interview Pompeo recently did on Fox News, Brzezinski called him a “wannabe dictator’s butt boy,” which drew massive outrage on social media.
“I understand that Donald Trump doesn’t care…. But why doesn’t Mike Pompeo care right now? Are the pathetic deflections that we just heard, when he appeared on Fox & Friends — is that a patriot speaking? Or a wannabe dictator’s butt boy?” she asked, with her eyes getting wide after realizing that she had made a homophobic slur on live television.
“I’m dead serious. I’m asking: Are these the words of a patriot?” she added, trying to back peddle.
.@morningmika just asked if Mike Pompeo is a “wannabe dictator’s butt boy,” as homophobic a term as I’ve heard on national morning television. @MSNBC tried and failed to censor it, and did not transcribe her remark in the closed captioning. #journalism pic.twitter.com/3zK7H8evjh

Not only did her hubby Joe Scarborough refuse to acknowledge the remark, it appears MSNBC immediately tried to cover it up.
The closed captioning, which can be seen in the clip above, shows that her saying “or a wannabe dictator’s butt boy” was completely omitted.
Brzezinski issued a flimsy apology via Twitter soon after the segment scorched across Twitter.
“Totally agree with you -SUPER BAD choice of words .. I should have said “water boy”… like for football teams or something like that.. apologize to @SenatorDurbin too! SO SORRY!” she wrote at the time.

In the span of a month, Brzezinski used a homophobic slur about the secretary of state and informed America’s enemies that “now” is the “moment to act” against the nation.
