On Wednesday Mika Brzezinski became the latest MSNBC host to drop a homophobic slur. On live TV she accused Secretary of State Mike Pompeo of being a “wannabe dictator’s butt boy.”
Somehow she still has her job because only Democrats can get away with using vile homophobic slurs. Apologizing didn’t work for Roseanne. You need to lose your job because this is the new norm Mika Brzezinski helped create.
.@morningmika just asked if Mike Pompeo is a “wannabe dictator’s butt boy,” as homophobic a term as I’ve heard on national morning television. @MSNBC tried and failed to censor it, and did not transcribe her remark in the closed captioning. #journalism pic.twitter.com/3zK7H8evjh

“So Joe, I just have to ask because I don’t think — I can’t think of anyone here who can put it more clearly than you. I understand that Donald Trump doesn’t care, Heilemann makes a good point, he doesn’t care,” Brzezinski added. “But why doesn’t Mike Pompeo care right now? Are the pathetic deflections that we just heard when he appeared on ‘Fox and Friends,’ is that a patriot speaking or a wannabe dictator’s butt boy? And I’m dead serious, I’m asking, are these the words of a patriot?”
MSNBC morning host Mika Brzezinski used a homophobic slur on air Wednesday morning while questioning Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s motives in regards to the Saudis.
Her comments were made following an interview with Illinois Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin where they were discussing the murder of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi and how Pompeo has responded to the intelligence community’s assessments. More
@morningmika and @JoeNBC are just despicable human beings. I used to think they had occasional moments of insensitivity but these incidents are far too repetitive to be anything other than their true feelings/personalities coming to light. @MSNBC ANYONE else would be FIRED!

Donald Trump Jr. weighs in on Twitter:
This is disgusting! How can @KevinHart4real essentially be forced to lose his Oscar’s gig for comments he made years ago as a comedian, but Mika can make a seriously homophobic slur on a major news station, have the network try to cover it up & its not an issue? Give me a break! https://t.co/dTaBMkJa7x

Will MSNBC ignore this because they will benefit from ‘sensational’ ratings? Please comment below and let us know your thoughts.
