Mika to US Enemies: Now's the 'Moment to Act!'

Mika Brzezinski framed it as a "worry," but her statement can also be seen as giving advice [unintentionally, one would hope] to America's enemies, encouraging them to seize the current moment to act against us.

On today's Morning Joe, Jeffrey Goldberg of The Atlantic imagined America's adversaries being confused by Trump's unpredictable behavior. Mika was not confused.  

JEFFREY GOLDBERG: 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 . . . 

MIKA BRZEZINSKI: I would take it a step further and worry that 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. 

Mika's father, Zbigniew Brzezinski, was Jimmy Carter's national security adviser. Has Mika, in a strange twist on her father's legacy, become—wittingly or not—an adviser to America's enemies?

For his part, Goldberg directed his magazine to endorse Hillary Clinton for president in 2016, their first endorsement of a presidential candidate in decades. In 2012, Goldberg gushed that Barack Obama was "the most Jewish president we've ever had!"
