‘Politics Porn’ Mika Brzezinski Slams CNN For ‘Disgusting’ Kellyanne Conway Interviews (updated)

Morning Joe opened their Friday show in a predictable state of enraged bemusement over the ever changing narrative of why exactly James Comey was fired and who exactly wanted to do it.

They illustrated the point by playing clips from Donald Trump’s interview with Lester Holt alongside those of Deputy White House Press Secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

It was all too much for the perennial “I can’t even” Mika Brzezinski.

“First of all, Kellyanne Conway, Sarah Huckabee, Sean Spicer, Mike Pence, now all in the same category, in the Kellyanne category, not credible proved as a liar, made a fool of,” said Brzezinski.

The morning show co-host then went a step further, slamming her network rival CNN for even bringing Conway on the air.

“Also note to CNN, sorry, I love CNN, but you got to stop putting Kellyanne on the air. It’s politics porn. You’re just getting your little ratings cracks, ok, but it’s disgusting. There’s nothing that she brings to the table that’s honest. Your hosts know it. Your hosts look pained when they interview her because they know they’re just doing politics porn. They’re not doing news.”

Ouch.

Brzezinski then sent it over to show regular Donny Deutsch for a chaser, who promptly called the president a “dictator”

A CNN spokesperson responded to Brzezinski with disappointment.

“At a time when the press is under constant assault by the administration, it’s disappointing that Mika would take a gratuitous shot at a fellow news organization.”
