MSNBC Mika Brzezinski’s super smug selfie post draws scorn – your elitism is showing

A smug Mika Brzezinski, co-host of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” tweeted a photo Sunday that drew the scorn of more than one Twitter user.

The image is a “selfie” taken aboard an airplane, with Brzezinski sitting in first class, while the show’s host, Joe Scarborough, is seen in the background in coach class.

The tweet included the caption: “Look who is in coach .”

Scarborough saw little harm in her elitist humor, re-tweeting the photo, along with the caption: “Need pretzels?” NBC’s “Today Show” co-anchor Savannah Guthrie, who apparently enjoyed a first class seat on the same flight, played along:

Being the daughter of former National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski, who served in the Carter administration, the liberal MSNBC co-host has likely spent little time in coach.

Thankfully, folks were quick to remind Brzezinski that her elitism was showing, as documented by Twitchy:

    She’s NOT in coach! She’s in a small jet WITHOUT a first-class section. Either she’s too stupid to understand, or trying to fool her low information followers.

    • Eric Stegner

      I vote for the latter.

    • Marilyn Z

      The seats are different behind that little curtain but none of that matters. The fact that one of those who are supposed to not be elitist is not only being one but laughing at someone in a lower class.

      Actually she is in First Class. I have flown both coach and first on all sizes of jets, including the same type they are on. Even the small commuter jets have both. Please note the seating arrangement. What’s her face is sitting in a row with only one other seat across from her, while what’s his face is in the same size row with a total of four seats. Unless this jet gets wider after the first six rows, they are both in a row that has the same amount of space across. Also, although the picture doesn’t show it, she has more leg room than he does.

  • alanaforsyth

    He probably wanted a few minutes of peace away from her!

    • Marilyn Z

      I think you hit the nail on the head.

  • threepercenter

    I’d be happy to FLY in general. I’d be more than happy to sit in coach. smh

  • nell

    Guess what!!!! if that plane went down in a crash, coach and first class will be in the same boat!!!!

    • Eric G

      Statistically, the safer part of the plane is in the back, so we should be glad she’s right up front.

      • Doug

        Good point. Gory but well reasoned.

        • Eric G

          Thanks, I try and stick to the facts (most of the time:)

    • Tec Sg Beatty

      Nope. “First Class” gets to play lawn dart FIRST. And “coach” gets to watch, but not for long, I Admit.

  • Mike Kelley

    Whoever coined the term “selfie” should be shot!

    • Doug

      She should only take pictures of those hot legs.

      • ozarksunshine

        Once again you prove liberals have a war on women and are sexists.

        • Doug

          Great legs.

  • rhodes autry

    1st class is like buying a new car… once you step in 1/2 the value is eroded

  • Silence Dogood

    She looks like a *guy* -w- make-up. BSDNC – the network of “All Maddow, All The Time”

  • suziqleigh

    She is in 1st class. You can see the single seats and a few back there is the drawn apart curtain with the smaller twin seats. What a lot about nothing from both sides

    • Eric G

      I personally have no interest in any selfie, no matter who takes it. My personal opinion is anyone who engages in this practice at some level believes the masses really give a sh*t what they do 24/7. But I have to admit the really sad part is many do.

        These are often the same people who cause traffic backups. Not because they are blocked by an accident, but because they need to slow down to look, having so little of interest in their own lives’ lack of a worthwhile goal, to keep them moving more rapidly towards it.

  • MissyT111

    Same people like her b*tching about people making too much money….soooo how much money is she making and how much is she giving away??? hmmm

    • Doug

      She sends me 1K every week. As you all should do.

      • ozarksunshine

        So you get mine from your government check you ignorant libtard.

        • Doug

          They’re not sending me enough. What gives?

          • ozarksunshine

            So you’re proud to be a lazy, incompetent, lying, libtard, leech. Your mother must be real proud.

  • Si Simmons


    • Jerry

      You beat me to it.

    • TIMedWork

      Is that the wide angle lens, or does she really look like a cocker spaniel?
