Mika Brzezinski: Kellyanne Conway ‘Like Watching a Car Wreck On The Highway’


Morning Joe co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski ended the week in a feisty mood. In picking apart what can now safety be called Comeygate, the pair slammed the “liars” they said had emerged from all sides of the Trump administration.

Scarborough took a moment to reflect on Trump’s base voters.

“At some point they understand that if they have somebody who is President of the United States who lies all the time, the same lessons they tried to teach their kids about Bill Clinton lying all the time, at some point they’re going to turn around and they’re going to want to teach their children not to be like Donald Trump, not to lie, not to get caught in lies every single day. It’s on video tape. It’s not fake news.”

After accusing CNN of “politics porn” for bringing Kellyanne Conway on the air, Brzezinski took another moment to slam the White House counselor and the media in general.

“It has to stop and I’m going to just make one more point about the media in this. We need to stop celebrating ourself and just do our job. This isn’t like some sort of game show,” she said.  “I mentioned the pathetic grab for ratings in terms of networks having Kellyanne Conway on the show, a repeated liar, so consistently she lies that it’s almost like watching a car wreck on the highway when you’re driving by. You just can’t get your eyes of her. It’s a gross tabloid management ploy for ratings and that’s not our responsibility.”
