Michael Wolff Fires Back After Trainwreck Morning Joe Interview: ‘The President is Right About Mika’


Fire and Fury author Michael Wolff took to Twitter just minutes after his trainwreck Morning Joe interview to slam host Mika Brzezinski, claiming President Donald Trump “is right about” the MSNBC host, adding that she usually loves gossiping about POTUS’s affairs.

Wolff appeared on Morning Joe on Thursday, after landing in hot water over his suggestions that UN Ambassador Nikki Haley had an affair with Trump. He even claimed this week that Haley actually “embraced” the rumors, which she called “disgusting.”

During his appearance, Brzezinski went off on Wolff, telling him, “you might be having a fun time playing a little game dancing around this, but you’re slurring a woman, it’s disgraceful.”

After Wolff repeatedly denied that he was suggesting an affair between Haley and Trump, Brzezinski lost it, and abruptly ended the interview — an awkward affair, as Wolff was sitting in the MSNBC studio with Mika and the panel.

Well, Wolff launched into a tweetstorm after the interview, claiming that Trump “is right about Mika,” and that he was invited on the show only “to be thrown off.”

It is unclear what Wolff is referring to when he says the “the president is right about Mika” — Trump has frequently targeted the MSNBC host in tweets as “dumb as a rock” and “Low i.q. Crazy Mika.”

Wolff continued:

Wolff also noted that the last time he was on Morning Joe, hosts Mika and Joe Scarborough were “eager to gossip about who Trump might be sleeping with.”

We eagerly await Mika’s response, in the form of a strongly worded tweet.
