MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski this Thursday shot back at Michael Wolff for his “slurring” of United State Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley over her rumored affair with President Trump branding the accusations as “disgraceful.” (video below)
Brzezinski then abruptly cut short a morning show interview with the bestselling “Fire and Fury” author and sent “Morning Joe” to commercial.
Wolff inferred that Trump was having an affair in “Fire and Fury” and pointed the controversial rumors towards Haley last Friday on Bill Maher’s HBO show. Haley has since denied these allegation.
Wolff stated this Thursday that he “found it puzzling that Haley would deny something that she was not accused of,” during his interview with co-hosts Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough.
“You might be having a fun time playing a little game dancing around this, but you’re slurring a woman; it’s disgraceful,” Brzezinski said to Wolff.
“Mika, again, she has been accused of nothing. She has decided to deny something she was not accused of,” Wolff fired back. “Certainly I have not accused her of this.”
“Come on, are you kidding?” Brzezinski questioned. “You’re on the set of ‘Morning Joe,’ we don’t BS here.”
After some intense crosstalk, Brzezinski cut short the interview.
“If you don’t get what we’re talking about, I’m sorry, this is awkward, you’re here on the set with us, but we’re done,” Brzezinski declared. “Michael Wolff, thank you. We’re going to go to break now.”
Wolff has been taken to task in recently by other journalists for the hurtful rumors about Haley.
