Mika Brzezinski has taken to an ugly new level the liberal media's accusations against President Trump in the wake of the weekend's mass shootings.
On today's Morning Joe, Brzezinski actually accused the President of wanting such mass murders to happen: "Isn’t it okay to deduce that at this point this is what he wants? . . . I mean, this is a President who seems to want these things to happen. How else can this be explained?”
Here's the transcript of the exchange:
6:39 am EDT
EUGENE ROBINSON: There could be another Oklahoma City bombing, you know? Or something like that. I mean, we’re going to have the equivalent of a racist, right-wing, white-nationalist 9/11 here I think, and I make that prediction — you know, I don’t think I’m going out on a limb here and —
MIKA BRZEZINSKI: No, you’re not.
JOE SCARBOROUGH: There are a lot of things he could do --
BRZEZINSKI: -- but he won't. And so you have to ask the question, Joe, and I’ll ask you. Isn’t it okay to deduce that at this point this is what he wants? He is inciting hatred, inciting violence, inciting racism. If he doesn’t unequivocally call it off and say, this is wrong and we stand together against this and we are doing this, this and this to help fight hate crimes — I mean, this is a President who seems to want these things to happen. How else can this be explained?
Note that just earlier, the Washington Post's Eugene Robinson said he didn't think he was "going out on a limb" in predicting a "racist, right-wing, white-nationalist 9-11." Brzezinski could be heard agreeing with him. The chyron that the show put up during Brzezinski's rant—"The Threat of White Nationalism and Mass Murder"—tends to confirm that in saying that Trump "wants" these things to happen, she had in mind the "white-nationalist 9-11" that Robinson predicted.
So Brzezinski is apparently accusing President Trump of wanting "white-nationalist" atrocities on a 9-11 scale to happen. This is Trump Derangement Syndrome at its most unhinged. It was even too much for Joe Scarborough, who while accusing Trump of "inciting hatred," didn't embrace her lunatic notion that the president wants mass murders to happen.
