After being ‘triggered’ last week by White House tweets alleging that the Obama administration wiretapped Trump Tower, Mika Brzezinski of MSNBC’s ‘Morning Joe’, has apparently still not come to terms with Trump’s frequent Twitter rants. After continuing to press White House staff on how she should interpret Trump’s tweets, Mika told viewers this morning that a person “high up in the administration” told her they should be viewed “as like side bodily functions.”
“I’ve heard from people close, high up in the administration that we should look at these tweets as like side bodily functions. I swear to God those were the words that were used. I’m not trying to be snarky.”
“These are the words the President is using to shape the way people think, whether or not he means to, isn’t he the President of the United States. Shouldn’t this be taken at face value, seriously? And bared out for its truth or lack thereof?”
This latest commentary from the disgruntled morning talk show host followed a report earlier this morning from “Death and Taxes” that Trump had unfollowed both Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski on Twitter.
Unfortunately, this is what qualifies as ‘news’ these days…

Of course, all of this follows last week’s Mika meltdown in which she fought back tears during a segment in which she described Trump’s presidency as “fake and failed.” Here’s what we wrote previously:
President Trump’s weekend tweet storm about alleged wiretapping of his Trump Tower, apparently did not sit well with MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinksi. Fighting back tears during her opening remarks this morning, Mika lamented that she has “lost hope completely” in President Trump’s competency and declared that “This presidency is fake and failed.”
“I had hope and an open mind and I have lost hope completely and my mind is closed. This presidency is fake and failed.”
Thank you for the glorious start to the week, Mika.
