MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski apologizes for homophobic comment about Pompeo

Mika Brzezinski

"He doesn't care. But why doesn't Mike Pompeo care right now?"

Trump has a long and complicated relationship with Brzezinski and her husband, "Morning Joe" namesake Joe Scarborough. Richard Durbin, D-Ill., who described Trump's motivation to ignore the inculpatory evidence against the crown prince as financially based. Kelly's on-air gaffe resulted in segments on a variety of NBC News programs and her own colleagues, including Savannah Guthrie, Craig Melvin, and Al Roker, openly condemned her remarks before she was able to give her on-air apology.

MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski has not been penalized by MSNBC after making an anti-gay slur on the air yesterday during Morning Joe. Though we're no admirers of Pompeo and his handling of the situation (or lack thereof) either, Brzezinski's insult is a step too far.

MSNBC representatives declined to comment on Brzezinski's remarks - or the president's response to them - as well as any action the network may take over the incident.

Brzezinski also apologized to Sen. "Are the pathetic deflections that we just heard ... is that a patriot speaking, or a wannabe dictator's butt boy?".

Brzezinski was in the middle of sounding off on Pompeo's refusal to condemn Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman for his reported role in the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, when she made a decision to use a really bad choice of words. It was widely reported that Trump once offered to officiate their wedding.

Mr Varadkar did maintain his "preferred" option was to ratify the deal already agreed between the United Kingdom and the EU. He added: "It seems to me there is a majority in Westminster in favour of the proposition "there shouldn't be no deal".

So, why did she call him that?

Meanwhile, Brzezinski isn't the first MSNBC star to make homophobic remarks. Reid had even said she reported the hacking "crime" to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. "She'll be back with us tomorrow".

The network however did not immediately comment on the scandal, in contrast to its swift expression of support for host Joy Reid at the time she was criticized for homophobic posts written a decade ago.

Critics were quick to condemn Brzezinski because she had apparently used a homophobic slur.

"I'm dead serious", she went on.
