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 #ManOfThePeople.”

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:
.@morningmika This is probably one of the more pretentious tweets I’ve ever seen.

@SavannahGuthrie @JoeNBC @morningmika what`s wrong with coach or was that a joke?

@SavannahGuthrie @JoeNBC @morningmika OMG flying in coach! Your smug sense of entitlement is showing.

@morningmika Good Lord. You really don’t get it if you think riding in coach makes you ‘of the people’. #failedrealitycheck
