BREAKING: READ THE MUELLER REPORT

Mika Blasts Sarah Sanders for Defending Trump’s Suggestive Gillibrand Tweet

Mika Brzezisnki went on a tear against Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who did her best to defend President Donald Trump’s tweet claiming Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand came to him “begging” for campaign contributions, “and would do anything for them.”

Brzezinski initially reacted to Trump’s tweet Tuesday morning by calling on Sanders to either tell the truth to White House reporters about Trump’s “derogatory and disgusting” tweet — or resign.

On Wednesday’s episode of Morning Joe — after Sanders defended Trump’s tweet and asked the press corps to get its “mind out of the gutter” for thinking the president was using sexual innuendo — Brzezinski lamented the press secretary’s performance.

“I want to know how she does that,” Brzezinski said, adding that Trump “should have apologized for being a sexist pig.”

“For sexually harassing on Twitter,” she continued. “For using sex to denigrate women.”

Brzezinski went on to call First Lady Melania Trump’s work against cyberbullying “a joke,” and told Trump daughter Ivanka, who is apparently working to empower women from the White House, to “go home.”

The Morning Joe co-host concluded by playing a clip from MSNBC’s Steve Schmidt in which the Republican strategist brutally slammed Sanders for her dishonesty before the press pool.
