Someone must have put something in her Wheaties, because Mika Brzezinski went on an absolute rampage against President Trump on today’s "Morning Joe."
The host, angry over Trump's mockery of Joe Biden's recently announced plans for a national mask mandate, spent several segments screaming at the commander-in-chief.
Brzezinski — who was anchoring the program without her usual cohosts and husband, Willie Geist and Joe Scarborough, respectively — repeatedly blamed Trump for the deaths of Americans who’ve died from Coronavirus. She called on members of the Trump administration who aren’t “brainwashed by the cult leader” to start taking on Trump.
“We’re here, it’s insanity, it’s our democracy that’s at stake,” she said. “I beg Republicans to speak out. Mitch McConnell, wake up! It’s not about winning the Senate. What are you going to have after this? If President Trump is allowed to cheat his way through this election, what are you going to have? Are you day traders? Are you not smart anymore? What happened to you? Can’t you see what is happening?”
At another point, Mika said she feared Trump might try murdering her: “You can be sure that you will never see me on Fifth Avenue, ever, ever, because he has said he could shoot someone on Fifth Avenue, I believe him.”
Brzezinski repeatedly asked whether Americans might have any legal recourse against Trump if they contract Covid, which she said was likely attributable to Trump's "stupidity."
"What recourse do the American people have right now when their life is in the hands of a president who won’t do the basic things to save it? At what point is it malpractice? At what point is it something worse? I’m thinking of Tulsa where the Trump campaign took the social distancing stickers off the chairs and squished people together and made them click on a waiver saying, ‘You can’t sue if you get the Coronavirus and die from coming to this rally.’"
"How stupid can you be at this point if you follow this president?" she pleaded to her viewers. "I beg you not to be, for your life. But I ask you, Dave Aronberg, is there any legal recourse if you get this virus because of the stupidity of this president?”
After attacking Trump for posting "conspiracy theories" on Twitter, Brzezinski floated one of her own, namely that Trump is "purposefully" using Covid19 to kill Americans.
“His constant lying is now killing people,” she claimed. “It’s killing people by the day with his calamitous Coronavirus leadership. It’s killing Americans every day. He could be keeping people alive. He’s choosing not to.”
Brzezinski ultimately admitted her behavior was unusual.
“You know, if you’re sensing a little intensity here,” she told viewers, “I’m a little amped up because this is an emergency.”
