‘Morning Joe’ Host Says Show Will No Longer Book Conway
Mika Brzezinski of “Morning Joe” will not allow Kellyanne Conway to appear on the show while she is a host.
The Hill reports:
Co-host Mika Brzezinski says she will no longer allow senior White House counselor Kellyanne Conway on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”
“I know for a fact she tries to book herself on this show; I won’t do it,” Brzezinski said of Conway on Wednesday morning.
“I don’t believe in fake news or information that is not true. That is — every time I’ve ever seen her on television something is askew, off or incorrect,” she added.
Co-host Joe Scarborough chimed in to say Conway may not have been knowingly spreading false information but was just making statements “to prove her relevance.”
“I don’t even think she’s saying something she knows to be untrue,” Scarborough said.
“She’s just saying things just to get in front of the TV to prove her relevance because behind the scenes she’s not in these meetings and any reporter can ask anybody in that White House and they will say the same thing. She’s not in these meetings. So why does the president allow her to keep going out and spreading false information?”
Brzezinski said Conway is “not credible anymore.”
“Kellyanne Conway does not need to text our show, as long as I’m on it,” Brzezinski said. “It’s not happening here.”
