MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski used a homophobic slur to describe Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on the air this week.
Comedian Kevin Hart lost his job hosting the Oscars last week when the media dug up some years-old homophobic jokes he made on Twitter. Why should Mika Brzezinski get a pass for this?

Disgusting Mika Brzezinski Slimes Mike Pompeo as ‘Wannabe Dictator’s Butt Boy’
The unhinged hosts of Morning Joe on Wednesday took it to a new level, sliming Secretary of State Mike Pompeo as unpatriotic and a “wannabe dictator’s butt boy.” The vulgar language was so bad that MSNBC producers tried to cut Mika Brzezinski’s audio, just missing her disgusting attack.
Referencing Pompeo’s appearance on Fox and Friends in which he was grilled about the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, Brzezinski snarled, “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?”
It was at this point that Brzezinski’s audio was cut. She didn’t seem to notice and kept ranting. After it came back, Brzezinski questioned the patriotism of the Army veteran, demanding, “I’m asking, are these the words of a patriot?”

Do you think her apology would be accepted if she worked for FOX News?
