Mika Brzezinski by a different name would be fired

  • Mika Brzezinski calls Secretary of State Mike Pompeo a 'butt-boy' — and immediately issues breathless apology

With the MSNBC host already apologizing for calling the former congressman a "wannabe dictator's butt boy", Trump finally got around to defending him.

Brzezinski had at least one high-profile supporter: Fox's Sean Hannity, who said she had made a "pretty bad choice of words". Khashoggi was a foe of the crown prince's.

On Thursday, Brzezinski's co-host and husband, Joe Scarborough, explained her absence by saying that "Mika has the day off with her family, a long-planned family event". "I'm asking, are these the words of a patriot?"

"But please allow me to say this face to face: The term is crass and offensive and I apologize to everyone, especially the LGBTQ community, and to my colleagues, for using it".

"I understand that Donald Trump doesn't care...but why doesn't Mike Pompeo care right now?" she said.

"Totally agree with you -SUPER BAD choice of words".

"Congratulations to Richard Grenell, our great Ambassador to Germany, for having the courage to take this terrible issue on!" he wrote.

Richard Grenell, the USA ambassador to Germany, who is openly gay, noticed an omission in her apology.

MSNBC had no comment on Trump's tweet.

"Outrageous", Grenell wrote Wednesday after Brzezinski's comment went viral. "Sexualizing gay people this way is created to control them & minimize our worth", he said. "I'm not the speech police", Hannity said.

The mounting controversy caught the eye of the president's son Donald Trump Jr. who, rather than making a point about homophobia, drew a comparison with comedian Kevin Hart, who withdrew from hosting the Oscars last week, after old homophobic tweets and jokes were unearthed. "And something they would never do for a Fox opinion host is. stand up when people try to boycott, or stand up when people call for firings".

"I'm dead serious", she persisted.

While Anderson wrote he accepted Brzezinski's apologies, dozens of other Twitter users did not think her apology was satisfactory-some even called for the Morning Joe host to be fired.
