‘Crazed’: Mika received a lot of backlash for ‘homophobic’ slur, but no one’s burned her quite like Trump just did

President Donald Trump responded Thursday to the controversy surrounding a still gainfully employed MSNBC host’s use of a gay slur to attack a member of his administration by shining a spotlight on the media’s glaring double standards and hypocrisy.

“If it was a Conservative that said what ‘crazed’ Mika Brzezinski stated on her show yesterday, using a certain horrible term, that person would be banned permanently from television,” the president tweeted Thursday afternoon, referencing “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski.

Trump, who is often (wrongly) accused of being homophobic, also took the time to praise an openly gay member of his team, U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard A. Grenell for taking Brzezinski to task.

“[O]utrageous. This is totally unacceptable & deeply disturbing. Sexualizing gay people this way is designed to control them & minimize our worth,” Grenell tweeted Wednesday morning.

After Brzezinski issued a widely criticized non-apology apology, Grenell slammed her again.


During Wednesday’s edition of “Morning Joe,” Brzezinski derided CIA Director Mike Pompeo’s as “a wannabe dictator’s butt boy” because of his support for the president’s stance on Saudi Arabia.

“I understand that Donald Trump doesn’t care, but why doesn’t Mike Pompeo care right now?” she said, expressing frustration over the Trump administration’s refusal to abandon one of its closest allies in the Middle East over the country’s alleged murder of a journalist linked to terrorism.

“Are the pathetic deflections that we just heard when he appeared on ‘Fox and Friends,’ is that a patriot speaking or a wannabe dictator’s butt boy?” she then asked. “And I’m dead serious, I’m asking, are these the words of a patriot?”


Whether Brzezinski will be given a pass remains unclear, though as of Thursday afternoon she still reportedly remained gainfully employed with MSNBC, a far-left network home to the likes of known antisemite Al Sharpton and known anti-white racist Joy Reid.

What appears to be different this time is that many in the left-wing media have turned against Brzezinski, including David Folkenflik of NPR and Glenn Greenwald of The Intercept.

Will this be enough to spur the MSNBC co-host’s removal? That remains unknown, though according to her husband, co-host Joe Scarborough, for now she’s taken off for a one-day family event.

“Mika has the day with her family, a long planned family event,” he said Thursday. “She’s sorry she’s not here, cause we’re going to be talking about baseball most of the morning. She’ll be back with us tomorrow.”

It’s unclear why he himself isn’t considered a part of “her family,” given as he’s her husband.

Nevertheless, the president’s not the only one irritated by Brzezinski’s continued employment.


Comedian Kevin Hart was effectively ousted earlier this month from his role as the host of the upcoming Oscars because of homophobic jokes he made almost a decade ago. Unlike Brzezinski, the comedian apologized for his behavior.
