MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski apologizes for homophobic comment
NEW YORK (AP) — President Trump attacked MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski on Thursday for using a homophobic slur on the air and tweeted that if a conservative person had said it, "that person would be banned permanently from television."

‘Morning Joe’ hosts Joe Scarborough, Mika Brzezinski marry
NEW YORK (AP) — Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski of MSNBC's "Morning Joe" are now co-hosts and spouses.
The network says the couple wed Saturday in a small ceremony attended by family and friends in Washington.
They tied the knot at the National Archives with U.S. Rep. Elijah Cummings, of Maryland, officiating.
Mika Brzezinski is right now looking good, even if she did not come out so well in a recent “Saturday Night Live” sketch.
It poked satirical fun at her as more a mindless toady than a journalist while portraying her partner, Joe Scarborough, as self-absorbed. The two host MSNBC’s commentary show “Morning Joe,” and part of the skit was about a recent interview with Michael Wolff.
CNN's recent town hall on guns in America was a tense broadcast event that sparked controversy and ignored industry ethics meant to preserve decorum and fairness on the airwaves. Things change. The two-hour program boldly breached barriers between entertainment, news and reality TV. But it also garnered big ratings for CNN, attracting an audience of 3 million about three times the number of viewers the network would typically attract during that time period.
Ford won’t contribute to MSNBC until resolving allegations

In early 2011, Comcast Corp. CEO Brian Roberts was asked on MSNBC’s Morning Joe what he thought of NBC News as the Philadelphia cable giant was closing on its $30 billion deal for NBCUniversal.
“It is the crown jewel of Comcast,” Roberts told hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski.

MSNBC hosts help Seeds of Peace celebrate 25th anniversary
ARUNDEL, Maine (AP) — Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski (MEE'-kah breh-ZHIN'-skee) of MSNBC's Morning Joe are in Maine to help Seeds of Peace celebrate its 25th anniversary.
Speakers at the event Friday evening at Vinegar Hill Music Theatre in Arundel include two Seeds of Peace campers and executive director Leslie Lewin.
It was inevitable. Eventually, President Donald Trump would treat a foreign adversary as harshly as Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski.
North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un was on the receiving end of the alliteration heard around the world, when Trump promised “fire and fury” if Pyongyang continued to threaten the United States.
“Morning Joe,” they say that breaking up is hard to do.
A month after saying he was leaving the GOP because it had sold out its core values to Donald Trump, MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough is still a registered Republican.
The GOP registrar of voters in Scarborough’s hometown of New Canaan, Joan McLaughlin, said there has been no change to Scarborough’s party affiliation since he told Stephen Colbert on July 11 that he was bolting from the Republicans.
Mika Brzezinski has a three-book deal
NEW YORK (AP) — "Morning Joe" co-host Mika Brzezinski (bruh-ZHIN-skee) has a three-book deal.
Weinstein Books told The Associated Press on Thursday that the first release would be a new and expanded edition of the 2011 best-seller "Knowing Your Value: Women, Money, and Getting What You're Worth." The book features commentary from Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Sheryl Sandberg, among others, and will come out next spring.
Two recent opinion pieces illuminate and clarify the apparent mission of the newspaper; to attack President Donald Trump. Mary Farrell seems to think that Trump is tweeting like a child (Sunday, July 2, 2017, Opinion, “Tweeting like a 5-year-old”) and Alma Rutgers’ column thinks Trump is a demagogue who would be a dictator and threatens the foundations of our democratic institutions (July 2, “A new challenge to answer freedom’s call”). It’s as if the anti-Trump and pro-Hillary crowd feels that the only way to survive the results of the recent presidential election is to continue to throw a temper tantrum.
NEW YORK (AP) — "Morning Joe" host and former Republican congressman Joe Scarborough is blaming the GOP's loyalty to President Donald Trump and its failure to live up to its promises for his decision to leave the party and become an independent.
MSNBC’s Scarborough says he’s leaving GOP
NEW YORK (AP) — MSNBC host and former Republican Congressman Joe Scarborough says he's leaving the GOP.
The "Morning Joe" co-host has become a sharp critic of President Donald Trump.
Scarborough said Tuesday during an interview with CBS "Late Show" host Stephen Colbert that "I've got to become an independent."
It started out like any other normal day in the White House.
President Donald Trump had a big energy policy speech to deliver. He had a meeting to attend with South Korea’s president on North Korea’s nuclear plans. On Capitol Hill he had “Trumpcare,” as critics were calling the Grand Old Party’s push to repeal and replace President Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare.
Critics hammered President Donald Trump for his "sexist" tweet in which he made fun of MSNBC's "Morning Joe" co-host Mika Brzezinski. Trump tweeted: "I heard poorly rated @MorningJoe speaks badly of me (don't watch anymore). Then how come low I.Q. Crazy Mika, along with Psycho Joe, came to Mar-a-Lago 3 nights in a row around New Year's Eve, and insisted on joining me. She was bleeding badly from a face-lift. I said no!" What did the morning show do to incur the President's wrath? During recent...
Unless one has a thesaurus, it’s difficult to describe Donald Trump. Despicable, disgusting, execrable, filthy, abhorrent, abominable, repulsive. Words that never come to mind, however, include presidential, distinguished, dignified, elegant, elevated. His most recent Twitter explosion allowed us to see him fall to a new low.
And all because Mika Brzezinski made fun of Trump creating a phony Time Magazine cover of himself to hang in the corridors of his golf clubs and resorts here and abroad.
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — The nation's only Latina governor says recent tweets from President Donald Trump about an MSNBC female host and a mock video attacking CNN were "not appropriate" and "not helpful."
New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez, a fellow Republican, said Wednesday the country needed to focus on more important issues like education and the economy.

NEW YORK (AP) — Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski reached their biggest audience ever when they talked Friday about President Donald Trump's tweets about their show.
The Nielsen company said Wednesday that 1.66 million people watched the MSNBC morning show the day after the tweets. That narrowly beat the show's previous record, which came the day after Trump was elected last year.
A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger." (Proverbs 15:1) President Trump once referred to the health care bill passed by the House as "mean." So how should we characterize his remarks about MSNBC "Morning Joe" co-host Mika Brzezinski? The president of the United States, reacting to her criticism of him, claimed Brzezinski was "bleeding" from a facelift when he saw her last New Year's Eve at his Florida resort. He further described her as being "dumb as a rock." That's...
President Donald Trump is embarrassing himself and the nation with his public Twitter rants against anyone he believes has offended him.
This past week, President Trump sent tweets to Morning Joe hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski. Trumps disparaging remarks previously began with tweets calling the host Brzezinski "low IQ Crazy Mika" and said she'd been "bleeding badly from a face-lift" at a meeting in Mar-a-Lago, the President's Florida resort. Both hosts have denied the meeting ever took place.

Recently, Morning Joe hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough alleged that Donald Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway said she felt she had to take a shower during the campaign after she defended our president, and she defended him only because of the money. How much money does one need to defend a person such as our president? She also has said that she is soon to be done defending him.
NEW YORK (AP) — President Trump counselor Kellyanne Conway says statements made by MSNBC hosts that she was only working for Trump for the hefty paycheck are untrue.
"Morning Joe" show hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski said Conway told them she secretly disliked working for Trump and was only "doing it for the money."
It’s no great secret that Morning Joe hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough aren’t the biggest fans of White House counsellor Kellyanne Conway.
In fact, just last week Brzezinski went after CNN and host Andersoon Cooper for allowing Conway on the network. Brzezinski, who has banned Conway from appearing on her own show, called the Trump spokeswoman “a repeated liar” and dubbed the CNN segment featuring her “politics porn.”
