Mika Brzezinski of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” reported on the lawsuit filed against Fox News by former Fox contributor Rod Wheeler — while playing Fleetwood Mac’s “Little Lies” in the background. The suit claims Fox ran the story of the homicide of Democratic National Committee aide Seth Rich only after running it by President Donald Trump first.
Mike Opelka called her out for hypocrisy after unearthing evidence of Brzenzinski doing the exact same thing for the exact same person. Brzezinksi can be heard on a hot mic clearly running which questions then-candidate Trump wants to be asked.
She said, “You don’t want me to do the ones with deportation?” to which Trump responds, “That’s right. Nothing, nothing too hard, Mika.” She then says, “Okay.”
Mike said on Wednesday’s “Pure Opelka” that this is “exactly the kind of thing that this lawsuit … is talking about.” He also drew attention to Brzezinski’s relationship with former President Barack Obama’s close aide Valerie Jarrett, whom she even talked about texting and calling on air.
