So, you know the old saying: “You can't make this up”? And the sometimes response: “You don't have to”?
This is one of those times — on both counts.
On Monday's edition of MSNBC's “Morning Joe,” co-host Mika Brzezinski pushed a conspiracy theory about the “Access Hollywood” video of Donald Trump uttering those infamous words to Billy Bush about groping women.
During a segment in which the whole “Morning Joe” crew trashed Trump, Brzezinski shared her theory about what wasn't revealed in the video, which sounds far more ominous:
“It just sounds like anything could have happened in that bus, and I wonder what Billy Bush would say if he totally told the story. Because it sounds like he was sort of, like, you know, something happened in there like he was lunged at in some way by Trump.”
Even Brzezinski's co-host and fiancé Joe Scarborough was taken aback by her comments, saying, “OK, c'mon, Mika.”
As noted by The Washington Free Beacon, no one at “Access Hollywood” has ever said that Trump threatened Bush.
