Way to support the sisterhood, Mika.
It seems like MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski thinks a female journalist’s place is behind the anchor desk and not flaunting her “long legs and short skirts” in front of viewers.
The “Morning Joe” co-host ripped into the women on Fox News’s “Outnumbered” after the show’s co-host, Harris Faulkner, called Brzezinski “emotional” for her criticism of President Trump.
“Mika is a sad-mad,” co-host Joe Scarborough said at the start of “Morning Joe” on Wednesday.
“Yesterday, they had a show on Fox called ‘Outnumbered,’ ” he continued, as Brzezinski interrupted.
“And all of these people with long legs and short skirts talk about how people feel about the news,” she said.
“I didn’t know about that,” Scarborough replied. “But they have like 30 women or something and then they get one guy in the middle, and it’s called ‘Outnumbered,’ right?”
“And all these legs,” Brzezinski said again, in case anyone missed her point.

Of course, Scarborough criticized the ‘Outnumbered’ hosts of being “sexist.”
“People said she was crying and tearing up because she was upset! Nothing sexist there,” he said, obviously missing the hypocrisy of Brzezinski’s slam of the women.

On the eve of International Women’s Day and with “A Day Without a Woman” protests planned around the nation, Brzezinski’s remarks were not well received on social media.

@thehill Yeah–They have long legs and short skirts–They also have law degrees and they weren’t hired because of their Fathers’ coat tails.
