Things got very awkward on Wednesday morning when MSNBC “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski “joked” that President Donald Trump has a sexually transmitted disease.
As reported by The Daily Caller, it all started when the panel of left-wingers were criticizing the Trump administration for not supporting the media.
After mocking the president for not being cozy with them, they launched into a sick diatribe and found it humorous to claim Trump had a disease.
They began discussing the alleged raid on Trump’s personal doctor, Dr. Harold Bornstein, where it was reported that the president sent officials to Bornstein’s office in early 2017 to seize all of his medical records.
While slandering Trump’s character and administration, MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle offered a ridiculous theory about those who work for the president.
“It’s truly like every time I’ve ever dated an awful jerk out there and then thought, you know what? I’m going to be the girl to change him,” Ruhle said. “And every person that touches President Trump thinks that: I’m going to be the girl that turns this guy around.”
She added: “And nobody can, because this is who he is.”
“I like this analogy from Stephanie,” said MSNBC’s Elise Jordan. “You leave [the White House] with the political equivalent of an STD, to talk about something that Donald Trump worries about constantly.”
“It’s something that you just don’t get rid of easily,” Jordan added.
Watch below, and bask in the awkwardness:
Co-host Joe Scarborough carried on the STD joke, saying Trump claimed years ago that avoiding sexually transmitted diseases was his “personal Vietnam.”
“Donald Trump would even say that this would be like one of his staffers’ personal Vietnams,” Scarborough joked.
“Wait a minute!” Mika Brzezinski exclaimed. “Maybe that’s why they raided his doctor’s office?”
It got downright awkward from that point, with a few seconds of complete silence.
The panel was visibly shocked that Brzezenski, without a shred of evidence, claimed Trump seized the documents because he wanted to cover up evidence of a sexually transmitted disease.
Perhaps the entire panel joking about Trump having an STD is fair game, but actually saying he does is off-limits?
Just imagine the outrage and endless coverage if any Fox News host randomly stated that former President Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton had a sexually transmitted disease.
Another day, another inappropriate and embarrassing comment from deranged liberals.
