Mika on 'Morning Joe' Gives a Stern Message to Kellyanne Conway -- Then Delivers Final Shot at Her Credibility
Just one day after Kellyanne Conway was heavily criticized by MSNBC's “Morning Joe,” co-host Mika Brzezinski had a strong message for her on Wednesday morning.
After rolling a few clips of Conway's more controversial appearances, Mika let it be known exactly where she stands on the always outspoken counselor to the president:
“Joe was just saying that she books herself on these shows. We know for a fact she tries to book herself on this show, I won't do it because I don't believe in fake news or information that is not true and that is every time I've ever seen her on television. Something is askew, off, or incorrect.”
The discussion continued on Conway, shifting to the investigation into ethics violations which the counselor to the president potentially committed when she seemed to endorse Ivanka Trump's brand during an appearance on Fox News. But it ultimately came back to the topic of her contentious media appearances.
Mika's co-host Joe Scarborough weighed in on the issue again, after airing very strong criticisms of Conway Tuesday morning. Scarborough appeared to walk back his claim that Conway was intentionally lying by insisting that maybe she just doesn't know what's really going on in the White House:
"I think it is equally as bad that a spokesperson in the White House actually goes out and makes things up. She doesn't know, she doesn't have any of the information, she's not in any of the key meetings, she's not briefed. And so she'll go out like she did yesterday, she'll hear me say something about her, as apparently this is what I heard from inside the White House, and then she'll immediately start calling and she'll call people to go on TV and defend herself.
So she goes on the “Today Show”, gives misinformation as she does on all of these shows, and again I don't even think she's saying something that she knows to be untrue, she's just saying things just to get in front of the TV set to prove her relevance because behind the scenes she's not in these meetings."
Brzezinski went back in for one more hit on Conway at the end of the segment, letting her know that she was no longer welcome on “Morning Joe”:
“I will say, Kellyanne Conway does not need to text our show. At least as long as I'm on it, because it's not happening here.”
Just to put it more plainly:
Kellyanne Conway has been the subject of heavy criticism for how she conducts herself during appearances on various networks, but it looks like she won't have to worry about appearing on “Morning Joe” anytime soon.
