One day after she made a homophobic slur on the air, MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski was missing from the “Morning Joe” set Thursday, though co-host Joe Scarborough said her absence was due to a “long-standing family event.”
On Wednesday, Brzezinski referred to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo as “a wannabe dictator’s butt boy.”
Brzezinski later apologized on Twitter.
Totally agree with you -SUPER BAD choice of words .. I should have said “water boy”… like for football teams or something like that.. apologize to @SenatorDurbin too! SO SORRY! https://t.co/zIqsGdK3Tk
