Joe Scarborough outed co-host Mika Brzezinski’s true feelings about Donald Trump’s vice presidential pick, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, and it was enough to send liberals over the edge.
Pence was being interviewed on MSNBC and was talking about the humanitarian disaster on the ground in Syria and Brzezinski jotted down some notes while he spoke. When the interview ended, Scarborough picked up her notes and said, “I’m going to read what you wrote about him.”
An embarrassed Brzezinski quickly snatched the paper back.
“I’m gonna read what you wrote about him,” Scarborough reiterated as she protested.
“No hold on, hold on — let me read what you wrote about him!” he said, motioning with his hand. “ Give it to me. Come on. Come on. You always say people need to be transparent.”
Scarborough then reached for the paper and a suddenly submissive Brzezinski surrendered it without a fight.
He proceeds to read — twice — her inner thoughts about Pence out loud: “I am stunned by how good he is.”
“Yeah, no, I don’t agree with him,” she chimed in, hoping to salvage some dignity among the liberal media.
The overblown reaction on social media from the left ranged from suggestions that Brzezsinski is “scared to death” of being critical of Trump to claims she is colluded with the GOP.
Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:

@Morning_Joe Pence was “good” at what again, Mika? Don’t be your usual shallow self-“show your value”

Mika thinks Pence is a good pick. Does she know how Pence feels about women? She can never speak to knowing your value anymore. #morningjoe
