MSNBC anchor Mika Brzezinski boldly declared that it’s the media’s job to “control exactly what people think” during an on-air discussion about President Donald Trump.
Brzezinski made the flippant remark while responding to a comment from her co-host Joe Scarborough during a panel discussion on ‘Morning Joe’ about Trump’s efforts to “undermine the media.”
The TV host who is the daughter of Zbigniew Brzezinski, former National Security Advisor to President Jimmy Carter and counselor to President Lyndon B. Johnson, voiced her concerns that the president was “trying to undermine the media and trying to make up his own facts.”
“And it could be that while unemployment and the economy worsens, he could have undermined the messaging so much that he can actually control exactly what people think. And that, that is our job,” she continued.
The remark sparked no reaction from the panel but received a blunt “yeah” from colleague Scarborough, who then went on to equate Trump with Mussolini and Lenin, as reported by Grabien News.
Former GOP Representative Scarborough said that Trump’s description of the media as the “enemy of the people” echoed Mussolini and Lenin and “makes him sound more like a dictator in training.”
The clip has sparked a growing reaction online with many trolling Brzezinski and rejoicing that the “truth” is finally out.
