Mika Brzezinski Suffers EPIC Meltdown Over ‘Evil’ ‘Dictator’ Trump

On Friday’s Morning Joe, co-host Mika Brzezinski suffered a full-on meltdown as her Trump Derangement Syndrome was out in full force. She ranted about the President being “evil” and bringing on a “dictatorship.”

The outrage came in the wake of Trump’s Oval Office interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos in which the President said he would accept opposition research on his political opponents from foreign governments. For Mika Brzezinski, something that the Clinton campaign actually did in 2016 apparently makes Trump akin to an evil dictator.

 


She broke down on set and went off in an epic minute-long tirade against the evil of President Trump, even starting a little spat with her husband and co-host Joe Scarborough:

I want to take myself out of a box here. I never said he's evil and my reaction is not oh, he's evil. My reaction to what happened the other night when he said that is to George Stephanopoulos was this is horrendous, horrendous for our democracy. He is a national security threat. And what he does is not stupidity.

What he does is not evil playing out before our eyes. What he does is he manipulates the truth. He desensitizes the American public and the world to what is right and wrong and does things in plain sight and the results are evil. What happens in a dictatorship, what happens when evil forces step in is this -- slowly chipping away at our values, slowly chipping away at our democracy and that, whether he knows it or not, whether he's planning it or not, whether he gives a damn or not, that's what's happening.


It is understandable to be upset at the President’s comments. It is not illegal to accept opposition research from foreign sources, but it is certainly not moral. I don’t remember, however, Mika Brzezinski being this upset at the fact that the Clinton campaign literally paid a foreign operative, Christopher Steele, who then used Russian sources to construct a dossier full of oppo on then-candidate Trump. I also don’t remember her being upset when Clinton endorsed her Kremlin-sourced dossier on the Daily Show, saying “it’s part of what happens in a campaign.”

DONNY DEUTSCH: He's a bad dude but to your point, Joe, it's interesting, it's almost childlike – whereas “did you take the cookie?” “No, I didn't take the cookie.” Where he just genuinely doesn't think it's wrong. That's how demented he is, whatever word we want to attach to him, that in front of the entire world, why wouldn't I? Wouldn't everyone? So you can almost say is he evil or just no moral compass?

MIKA BRZEZINSKI: All right --

DONNY DEUTSCH: There's no compass there to even look at.

BRZEZINSKI: Well he’s not smart. I just –

JOE SCARBOROUGH: I think the word actually, Mika --

BRZEZINSKI: I want to take myself out of a box here. I never said he's evil and my reaction is not oh, he's evil. My reaction to what happened the other night when he said that is to George Stephanopoulos was this is horrendous, horrendous for our democracy. He is a national security threat. And what he does is not stupidity. What he does is not evil playing out before our eyes. What he does is he manipulates the truth. He desensitizes the American public and the world to what is right and wrong and does things in plain sight and the results are evil. What happens in a dictatorship, what happens when evil forces step in is this -- slowly chipping away at our values, slowly chipping away at our democracy and that, whether he knows it or not, whether he's planning it or not, whether he gives a damn or not, that's what's happening.

SCARBOROUGH: Well, just to clarify, Mika --

BRZEZINSKI: That's what I meant.

SCARBOROUGH: The lawyer that I am, I did not say that you said he was evil. I said you were upset--

BRZEZINSKI: I'm telling you what's happening.

SCARBOROUGH: I said others said he was evil. I hear what you're saying. I have a little different opinion about this, Gene Robinson. I could be wrong. I've been accused of being overly optimistic many, many, many times before and, as you know, I'm wrong every day. But, in this case I think this is a temporary phase. I think these Republicans have already paid a horrific price.
