Mika Brzezinski had a full meltdown on Friday morning’s episode of “Morning Joe” as she reacted to Texas lawmakers passing a new state voting law to protect election integrity.
Brzezinski described the Republicans who are still loyal to Donald Trump as “pathetic,” adding that the “big lie” being pushed by the GOP “could destabilize this country for administrations to come.”
“[Republicans are] propping up Elise Stefanik and, you know, forcing her to move away from her own core values that she expressed publicly years ago when Trump was first running,” Brzezinski stated. “She expressed very strong statements about his statements toward women, the way he treated other countries that he didn’t think were up to par. Elise Stefanik talked about how the president did not represent America’s core values, and now she’s being used as a mouthpiece to this terrible message that Kevin McCarthy once carried by someone who’s capable of carrying it.”
“Trust me — it’s not Liz Cheney because she will not lie to the American people, and she will not prop up a cult leader and his unbelievable lie that could destabilize this country for administrations to come. If you heard Bob Gates on our show yesterday, you’d be very worried about the years to come and Trump’s impact on our democracy,” she added. “Is there a direct connection between what’s happening in Florida and Texas and what went down in Georgia with these voting laws that could further destabilize our country on the foreign stage?”
“Joe, it just goes back to our lead story, and how serious it is — what this judge has said about the Trump presidency, about the Mueller report that the president with the help of the attorney general used the Mueller report to drum up hate, to foment anger, and it all led up to January 6, and by the way, took the Republican Party hostage, and they are choosing to stay there,” she said.
