Mika Brzezinski: 'Traitorous' for Republicans to Challenge Vote Counts

November 9th, 2020 11:08 AM

So, Mika, should Biden perhaps put the traitors on display in cages next to the inauguration stand?

On today's Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski made the bizarre accusation that it would be "traitorous" to the transition process for Republicans to challenge the election results. They never stop shaming the Trump supporters as the worst kind of humans.

Mika's disturbing allegation was in line with the show's theme of discouraging Republicans from raising legal challenges to the election results. Joe Scarborough and Willie Geist even feigned to offer good-faith advice to the GOP, suggesting that by focusing on challenges to the presidential results, Republicans could wind up costing themselves the two Senate run-off elections in Georgia.

And MSNBC contributor Shawna Thomas actually said—not a typo—that "there is none! There is no evidence of voter fraud."


Mika made two additional absurd assertions. First, echoing Scarborough, she said that "this was the most transparent election in American history." Right. Because nothing says "transparent" like barring Republican observers, and literally putting up barriers on windows at counting centers to prevent people from watching what was going on! Not to mention the media's transparent lack of interest in vetting the Biden family.

And on a final, utterly un-American, note, Mika said, "the world is resoundingly confirming these results. And that’s important, too." Uh, no, Mika. It's not important at all. American elections are decided by . . . Americans. Not by, you know, cheese-eating surrender monkeys!

Mika Brzezinski claiming it would be "traitorous" for Republicans to challenge the election results was sponsored in part by USAA, Lincoln, TD Ameritrade and Ninja Foodi.

Here's the transcript.

Morning Joe
6:09 am ET

JOE SCARBOROUGH: Willie, what doesn’t make a lot of sense is for Donald Trump to know — or to have one challenge after another. He’s going to lose every single challenge. There’s not a challenge out there that he can win.

. . . 

And by the way, if you’re in Georgia, and you've got two Senate races coming up, and literally the future of American government rests on those two seats, because if they make jackasses out of themselves in Georgia and voters are turned off, then Democrats can win both of the seats, and Democrats control Washington, DC. So it doesn’t make sense for them to keep, you know, driving the car off the cliff for Donald Trump, because he’s lost. It’s over. Rupert Murdoch is saying it through the Wall Street Journal and through the New York Post. I mean —

MIKA BRZEZINSKI: The world is saying it.
. . . 

WILLIE GEIST: The more time Republicans spend on this, the more time they go down this path that has no end to it, is less time they’re looking at those Senate seats in Georgia.

. . . 

SHAWNA THOMAS: There is almost no — actually, there is none! There is no evidence of voter fraud in these cases. 

. . . 

SCARBOROUGH: Mitch McConnell knows how to count votes. Mitch McConnell knows this election’s over. He’s concerned about winning those two Georgia seats, which he should win, unless Republicans really foul things up over the next several weeks, which they could do.

MIKA: They could.

SCARBOROUGH: It would follow the madness of Donald Trump’s claims.

MIKA: It would be traitorous, actually, to the process our country has in place for a peaceful transition.

. . . 

The problem Trump has is, number one as Joe mentioned, this is the most transparent election in American history. Number two, the world is resoundingly confirming these results. And that’s important, too.
