Mika Brzezinski backed up Joe Scarborough’s fake story about her taking time off for a family function on Thursday which happened to be the day after she apologized on Twitter for calling Secretary of State Mike Pompeo a “butt-boy,” on their Tuesday morning show.
MSNBC considers their audience stupid and ignorant as they continue these insensitive practices and then apologizing 1 to 2 days later. This 52-second apology is not sincere, its damage control.
I want to get to something first. I was off yesterday for a family matter, as you mentioned, but I wanted to address a term that I used on this show on Wednesday that was vulgar. I knew it right away and I tweeted that it was a terrible choice of words and that I was sorry. But please allow me to say this face-to-face.
The term is crass and offensive and I apologize to everyone, especially the LGBTQ community and to my colleagues for using it. It was a mistake. My father would have found it so unbecoming and disrespectful and he would have told me. I will work hard to be better. But I just wanted to say on camera, looking the viewers straight in the eye, I am really, really sorry.
