Mika Uses Homophobic Slur To Describe Secretary Of State Pompeo

Mika Uses Homophobic Slur To Describe Secretary Of State Pompeo

"Are the pathetic deflections that we just heard when he appeared on Fox & Friends - is that a patriot speaking?" Khashoggi was a foe of the crown prince's.

Co-host Joe Scarborough opened the show by saying "Mika has the day off with her family, a long-planned family event". "I'm asking, are these the words of a patriot?" Earlier this year, the network stood behind host Joy Reid after she apologized for controversial years-old blog posts about gay people and same-sex marriage.

She said it sounded like Pompeo was carrying water for a "wanna-be dictator", using a cruder term. I should have said "water boy". like for football teams or something like that. apologize to @SenatorDurbin too!

He added: "She will probably be given a pass, despite their bad ratings".

The host was quickly met with accusations of homophobia and told her word choice implicated homosexuality as equivalent to Pompeo's support of the crown prince's authoritarianism. "Congratulations to @RichardGrenell, our great Ambassador to Germany, for having the courage to take this frightful issue on!"

Richard Grenell, who is President Trump's ambassador to Germany and openly gay, weighed in on the controversy, tweeting: "Outrageous".

She also questioned whether Pompeo is a true, red, white and blue-blooded American. "Sexualizing gay people this way is created to control them & minimize our worth", he said.

"I understand that [President] Donald Trump doesn't care", Brzezinski reacted. The direct evidence, this is what I've said before, the direct evidence isn't yet available.

Donald Trump, Jr., called out the double standard of MSNBC's lack of response to date in contrast to the recent Oscar controversy, tweeting out: "This is disgusting!"

David Hogg would be calling for boycotts and firings.

Richard Grenell, the openly gay US ambassador to Germany, responded to her tweet with one of his own: "accepting apologies is important".

"I hate to expend energy defending Brzezinski, but she was using that problematic phrase in a different way. This is a problem we have in all of media".

If Trump is accurate that Brzezinski will get a pass, it's a drastic difference compared to the way NBC News handled now-former host Megyn Kelly's infamous "blackface" comment.
