“Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski said her jet-setting friends are embarrassed to be Americans while discussing if there was any reason for optimism in the Trump era on Monday. “I had some friends that went to Paris over the holiday… and they said they were just viscerally embarrassed to be American,” Brzezinski said. The MSNBC star’s co-host and fiancé, Joe Scarborough, perhaps realizing she wasn’t speaking to the average American, tried to intervene with a joke, asking, and “Paris, Texas right?” “Paris, France,” she responded. “They said it was the first time that it was sort of chilling.” Brzezinski said her friends “didn’t even want to share” that they were on vacation from the United States. Daily Caller media reporter Amber Athey didn’t appreciate the comment. “Maybe Mika’s friends should stay in Paris if they’re too embarrassed to admit that they are American,” she wrote. “We might be better off.” Last month, Brzezinski upset women who accused Mark Halperin of sexual harassment when she reported that she had tried to arrange a meeting so the now-disgraced political analyst could apologize. Brzezinski said Halperin, who was fired from MSNBC after being accused of sexual misconduct by multiple women, was “more than willing to meet with his accusers and apologize with them face-to-face.” The MSNBC star said she “actually tried to offer him to them” but the women “don’t want to talk to him.”
Of course they don’t…moron. Mika is SO out-of-touch with regular, mainstream America, it’s unreal. And, we agree with Amber A. If Mika’s liberal elitist friends are so “viscerally embarrassed to be American,” then they should leave and never come back. If their pride (or lack thereof) in being American is determined by who the sitting President is, then they don’t understand what it means to be an American. THEY are the ones who are embarrassments.
