MSNBC’s Mika stokes feud, claims Trump is ‘furious at Kellyanne’ over Romney-trashing

If you believe MSNBCs “Morning Joe” President-elect Donald Trump is “furious” about Kellyanne Conway’s decision to attack the idea of Mitt Romney being named Secretary of State on the Sunday talk shows.

The show’s co-host, Mika Brzezinski, said Monday that some of Trump’s top aides, and Trump himself, were “furious” at Conway’s decision to go after the former Massachusetts governor who made it a point to attack Trump and his campaign every chance he got.

“Two sources at the top of the Trump transition team confirm to MSNBC that they spoke to the president-elect today and that Donald Trump was “furious” at Kellyanne Conway’s comments on Sunday suggesting that Trump betrayed his supporters by even considering Mitt Romney for a position in his cabinet,” Brzezinski said.

“Kellyanne went rogue at Donald Trump’s expense at the worst possible time, a source familiar with Trump’s thinking said. Trump’s top aides said they were “baffled” by Conway’s comments and suggested that it feeds into a growing concern inside the campaign that “instead of driving Donald Trump’s message, she’s pushing her own agenda,” she said and added that one campaign aide called Conway’s words “dangerous.”

Coincidentally Brzezinski’s report followed a public fight between Conway and “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough on social media.

Scarborough said later on Monday that Conway had responded to the Brzezinski’s report, calling it “sexist.”

“We have a response from Kellyanne Conway, who says about our reporting this morning [that] it is sexist. She says she can have any job she wants and is thinking about taking a role inside and outside of the campaign,” the host said.

“I want to know, is she suggesting that the people that she’s working with, three people at the top of the Trump transition campaign are sexist? he said. “I don’t understand.”
