Mika Brzezinski’s absolute abhorrence of all things Trump was on display on today’s Morning Joe.

Brzezinski opened the show by joking about the news that Trump lawyer Jenna Ellis has tested positive for COVID, saying:

“There are now more Trump attorneys with COVID than they have election challenge wins.”

Hilarious, Mika! So long as they’re Republicans, nuthin’ like joking about people contracting a disease that has killed 286,000 Americans! Mika employed the transparent ploy of putting her “joke” about Jenna Ellis contracting COVID in the mouth of an unidentified tweeter.

Here’s the full quote from Brzezinski:

Meanwhile, yet another member of the president’s circle has tested positive for the coronavirus. This time, it’s his lawyer Jenna Ellis, who attended a White House high-level staffer Christmas party on Friday. Someone pointed out on Twitter that there are now more Trump attorneys with COVID than they have election challenge wins.

Later, Michael Steele, the Never Trumper and member of the failed Lincoln Project, said that President Trump’s goal in claiming the election was rigged:

“Is about ginning up the kind of momentum he wants to carry with him out of the White House, so that he will be able to sit on the sidelines, and rant and rave in his underwear at Joe Biden.”

Mika responded:

“That image this early in the morning is uh, uh, nauseating.” 

As opposed, of course, to the delightful image of a nude Joe Biden running out of his shower, grabbing his dog by the tail, and slipping and fracturing his foot! But of course Mika would never joke about that. For starters, it’s heartless and cruel to joke about people being injured or ill. Oh, wait.

Mika Brzezinski joking about a Trump lawyer contracting COVID, and saying she found the image of President Trump in underwear “nauseating,” was sponsored in part by Lincoln and Subway.
