It took just a few little words for bumbling anti-Trump morning host Mika Brzezinski to set the internet on fire.
After Franken sort-of-resigned from the Senate in a bitter speech accusing several women of lying about his predatory behavior, Mika tweeted out the following:
The backlash was swift from all sides. Liberals joined in, with one pundit calling Mika’s hypocrisy “staggering.”
Another said wisely that he looks forward to a world in which Democrats have the integrity to hold one of their own accountable.
The run-down from Daily Caller:
MSNBC “Morning Joe” host Mika Brzezinski reacted to Al Franken announcing his impending resignation with five words: “This does not feel right.”
Franken said Thursday on the floor of the Senate that he will be resigning “in the coming weeks.”
He faced backlash from allegations by eight women that say he groped or touched them inappropriately, but during his Senate speech, he did not apologize, saying that some of the accusations are false and that other incidents he remembered differently.
The instances of sexual assault came from a diverse chorus of women and spanned decades. Dozens of his Senate colleagues called for his resignation Wednesday.
In response, Brzezinski got torched for hypocrisy.
When Republicans and Democrats agree that MSNBC is full of crap, you know their network is headed down the toilet…alongside Al Franken.
