While #Donald Trump is typically the one to grab the majority of the headlines when it comes to his administration, some of his top advisers often find their way into the news. When it comes to Presidential Counsel #Kellyanne Conway, she has often come under fire for questionable remarks she makes on a routine basis.
Mika on Kellyanne
When Donald Trump announced that he was running for president back in the June 2015, the consensus was that his candidacy was a joke and would flame out before the race got too serious.
By the time last summer rolled around, the former host of "The Apprentice" was on his way to locking up the GOP nomination at the Republican National Convention. While Trump was moving in the right direction, his campaign manager at the time, Paul Manafort, was forced to step down after his financial ties to Russia were exposed to the public. Trump quickly made a change, replacing Manafort with veteran pollster Kellyanne Conway, who would go on to become one of the leading voices of the campaign. Following Trump's big win last November over Hillary Clinton, Conway was bumped up to the role of presidential counsel in the White House, but has found herself on the negative side of the headlines ever since. Pointing out these troubles was MSNBC host #Mika Brzezinski during the April 14 edition of "Morning Joe."
During Friday's edition of "Morning Joe" on MSNBC, co-host Mika Brzezinski ran a video clip that first showed Kellyanne Conway making her now infamous comments about the government using microwaves to spy on the American people, before jumping to CIA Director Mike Pompeo dismissing that notion during a recent speech earlier this week.
In response, Brzezinski unloaded on Conway.
"I mean, that's the CIA director seemingly throwing a little shade at microwaves and Kellyanne Conway," Mika Brzezinski said, before adding, "it's unbelievable she works in the White House." Brzezinski went on to refer to Conway's comments as "ridiculously stupid," while fellow co-host Joe Scarborough and the rest of the panel mocked the presidential counsel. Brzezinski didn't stop there, chiming in and calling her "really kooky," while concluding, "that's being kind."
This isn't the first time that the crew of "Morning Joe" have gone off on Kellyanne Conway. Earlier this year, Mika Brzezinski announced that she would no longer allow Conway on the show due to her non-top falsehoods, while Joe Scarborough has become increasingly critical of Donald Trump and the administration, despite being a Republican himself.
