Joe Scarborough, host of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” attacked Mike Huckabee for the remarks that Huckabee made while defending his daughter. Scarborough called Huckabee “predictably stupid” for what he viewed as an attack on his fiancee and co-host Mika Brzezinski.
Huckabee appeared on Fox News on Wednesday night and slammed Brzezinski for lecturing women in the White House about morality, family, and marriage. He also castigated Brzezinski for verbally attacking his daughter, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, and said it amazes him that “feminists are doing everything they can to discredit my daughter.”
Brzezinski was visibly uncomfortable when Scarborough brought up Huckabee’s comments and told him not to respond to them, repeatedly saying “No, Joe. Come on” and “stop.” Scarborough did not back down, however, and went on a short rant against the former Arkansas governor.
“What a sleazy thing to do. What a sleazebag,” Scarborough said. “Mike, you go and you actually talk about marriage. Mika never talked about marriage. She never lectured on the morality of any of that. What a sleazy thing for you to do.”
Brzezinski then appeared to say that she thinks “they have an agenda” before Scarborough continued criticizing Huckabee.
“What a judgmental, predictably stupid thing for you to do,” Scarborough said.
It’s very clear that Mike Huckabee was simply sticking up for his daughter, like any respectable father would. Especially when Brzezinski brought this on by attacking Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
