One day after she made a homophobic slur on the air, MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski was missing from the “Morning Joe” set Thursday, though co-host Joe Scarborough said her absence was due to a “long-standing family event.”

On Wednesday, Brzezinski referred to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo as “a wannabe dictator’s butt boy.”
==================================
She later apologized via Twitter.

Have the Powers that Be at MSNBC gotten to Mrs. Scarborough?

No, I do not think so.

I think that we can take her husband's word at face value.


No doubt those two love birds will soon be back together on the air giving their predictable two bits.

Although I have not watched the gruesome twosome since January, 2017, I do not think that she should lose her job because of that phrase.

And, of course, she won't. After all, she is a liberal and a woman.

I dunno, liberal or not, I don't want my news commentators blurting out anything like this. The whole media is going crazy on both sides.
