Mika Brzezinski took a turn into the analogies portion of Morning Joe with a curious comparison to sex and Bill Clinton … and Donald Trump
“I know that you’re on the edge of your seat as I talk about this,” said Brzezinski in a clear nod to her many much maligned soliloquies on the program.
Joe, however, held his tongue — perhaps in terror.
“I know what I am trying to say here and I’ll try and give you a parallel to help you understand. What Bill Clinton did to the issue of sex to an entire generation, I believe this president is doing on issues of decency on issues of conspiracy theories, on issues of fake news. I think it’s that simple and we’re desensitized if we even argue it.”
Joe wisely decided it was probably best not to explore where that conversation could lead and instead moved into a more banal description of his own “tough conversations” with GOP lawmakers over the abnormality of the Trump presidency.
The comments from Brzezinski came after a surprising interview with South Carolina GOP Rep. (and prolific hiker) Mark Sanford in which Sanford went a bit off script from calls for civility to lay some serious blame on Trump himself for the rising tone of national hostility.
