At least she’s being honest. That’s hard to come by these days in the media.
In a discussion about how Trump is trying to undermine the media, Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski said that Trump and his administration are “trying to make up their facts.” She said that even if unemployment goes up, and the economy goes sour, it won’t matter to Trump’s supporters, because he would have “undermined the messaging” so much that he would actually be controlling what people think.
Mika said, “And that is our job.”
SCARBOROUGH: Exactly. That is exactly what I hear. What Yamiche [Alcindor] said is what I hear from all the Trump supporters that I talk to who were Trump voters and are still Trump supporters. They go, ‘Yeah you guys are going crazy. He’s doing — what are you so surprised about? He is doing exactly what he said he is going to do.’
BRZEZINSKI: Well, I think that the dangerous, you know, edges here are that he is 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.
