MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski made a strange declaration on the air about America’s vulnerability and how that will be interpreted by our enemies. She tried to seem as though she was worried about this but the implication was pretty clear. One has to wonder if she realized how this came off to viewers.
News Busters reports:
Mika to US Enemies: Now’s the ‘Moment to Act!’
Mika Brzezinski framed it as a “worry,” but her statement can also be seen as giving advice [unintentionally, one would hope] to America’s enemies, encouraging them to seize the current moment to act against us.
On today’s Morning Joe, Jeffrey Goldberg of The Atlantic imagined America’s adversaries being confused by Trump’s unpredictable behavior. Mika was not confused.
Here’s the transcript:
JEFFREY GOLDBERG: Adversaries right now might look at us and say, we don’t know what the hell they’re going to do because this President is completely unpredictable. Their intelligence agencies are trying to analyze our moves, and can’t understand them . . .
MIKA BRZEZINSKI: I would take it a step further and worry we look weak, and that this is the moment that anybody with ill will has to act, or to get further than they have been able to get in the past, as it pertains to us on the national stage.
