‘This Is How Things Start’: Mika Brzezinski Implies U.S. on Path to Totalitarianism Under Trump

The host of MSNBC’s Morning Joe Mika Brzezinski went on a tear against President Donald Trump Monday morning, calling him incapable of doing the job of the presidency and strongly implying that he was putting the country on the path to something much, much worse.

Brzezinski said that while she also thought Trump could win the presidency, she didn’t want him to. “I wanted to have hope and I wanted to have an open mind that perhaps the weight of this office, of this presidency, might guide him in a better direction than in his previous life. It [has] not,” she said.

Her co-host Joe Scarborough agreed, saying Trump seemed “totally unprepared” for the presidency. “And possibly unfit mentally. Sorry, I’m just saying what everyone is thinking,” she added.

“We hear from people from other countries who say this is how it starts,” Brzezinski said, enigmatically, to British media executive Joanna Coles. “I think we are at that point where we have to have that conversation.”

“Well, I think there are a lot of people are very worried in Europe. Britain is watching this like a soap opera,” responded Coles.

“And others are watching it with historic knowledge of how things go terribly wrong,” Brzezinski said.
