In case you needed more evidence of how out-of-touch the media elite are, Mika Brzezinski did us the favor of making it all-too clear.
The “Morning Joe” co-host took a swipe at President Trump Monday morning, saying her friends who travel abroad are “embarrassed” to admit their nationality because of America’s head of state.
Here’s an idea … MOVE.
“I had a friend that went to Paris over the holiday, and they said they were just viscerally embarrassed to be American,” Brzezinski said. “They said it was the first time that it was sort of chilling.”
Fellow host Joe Scarborough jokingly suggested the unnamed “friends” actually went to “Paris, Texas,” but Brzezinski asserted it was Paris, France.
“They didn’t even want to share where they were from,” Brzezinski added.
Scarborough and Brzezinski were joined by Michael Wolff, author of the book “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.”
Wolff, whose book sparked a feud between the president and former White House strategist Steve Bannon, supported Scarborough’s claim that Trump is not “mentally fit” to lead the country.
The MSNBC host alleged a source close to the president told him the New York billionaire suffers from “early stages of dementia”–a claim he has made before.
Twitter users ripped “Morning Joe,” blasting Brzezinski for her perceived slight against America.
Any friend of Mika Brzezinski is probably predisposed to being viscerally embarrassed to be American, and have felt that way for years!

Are her Globalist friends are embarrassed that they can afford to jet in and out of Paris while the elites in the bubble mock Trump for giving Americans a few more thousand in their pockets?

I am viscerally embarrassed that Mica & her friends are Americans too. Hopefully, they’ll renounce their citizenship & not come back.

Liberals need to take a long hard look in a mirror!! I’ve had enough of their hysterics, identity politics, screaming at the sky, name calling, arrogance! Then they have the audacity to say President Trump is mentally unfit!!! Enough already!!

tbf, I’m sure if I knew them I’d be viscerally embarrassed that they’re Americans too

I would be very embarrassed to be associated with her, but not with America.

Well that sounds like a personal problem to me. A) Don’t go to Paris or B) Get the hell out and take citizenship somewhere else. There is nothing keeping you here.

Seriously??? Was that when those “friends” were stepping over migrants camped out in the streets of Paris? Such BS.
