Joe Scarborough Defends Mika Against ‘Sleazebag’ Huckabee: ‘Predictably Stupid’


MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough unleashed a brief tirade against Mike Huckabee on Thursday’s episode of Morning Joe, after the former governor fired shots at his fiancée Mika Brzezisnki for her strident criticism of his daughter Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

The family brawl all kicked off after Brzezisnki repeatedly called on Sarah, the White House Press Secretary, to either call out her boss President Donald Trump for his suggestive tweet about Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand — or resign.

Sarah’s father Mike, appearing on Fox News, slammed Brzezinski for her comments, hitting her for her “morality”:

“I was stunned that of all the people who are going to give a lecture on morality and family, and marriage, it’s going to be Mika? I’m sorry, but I just found that stunning,” Huckabee said. (It’s worth noting that Brzezinski’s gripe with Sarah Sanders did not have to do with family and marriage, but with her decision to defend the president’s tweet.)

“Mika can go pound sand somewhere as far as I’m concerned,” Mike added, in defense of his daughter.

On Morning Joe Thursday, Scarborough said after one commercial break that he had just seen Mike Huckabee’s interview.

“What a sleazy thing to do,” an angered Scarborough said, as Brzezinski protested. “You go and you actually talk about — Mika never talked about marriage.”

“She never lectured on the morality of any of that,” he exclaimed. “What a sleazy thing for you to do. What a judgmental, predictably stupid thing to do.”

“It’s unbelievable.”
