Fox News’ The Five kicked off Friday night by talking how bad of a week this has been for the media. In particular, they honed in on some hypocrisy in how Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski have reacted to the attacks from President Trump.
Greg Gutfeld in particular brought up some past comments of Scarborough’s to ask who the real sexist is here:
“Could we please stop turning this pretentious pair into victims? BEcause they’ve been trafficking in this stuff forever. The entire staff of Morning Joe, as we saw by those clips, are a bunch of hypocritical drama queens. They cultivated this relationship with Donald Trump, they kissed his butt, they rip him when they felt that it benefits them so they’d get respect at cocktail parties, then they tried to reel him back in and cultivate his friendship so he might do the show.”
Meghan McCain also brought up the time a few months ago when Brzezinski snarked about Fox’s Outnumbered featuring “these people with long legs and short skirts.” (She was responding to a segment Outnumbered did taking shots at her.)
McCain said Brzezinski’s comment was “the very definition of misogyny and sexism.”
