MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski referred to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo as “a wannabe dictator’s butt boy” on Wednesday. She later apologized for the remark.

On Twitter, Brzezinski expressed regret for her “SUPER BAD choice of words.” She made the comment during a discussion of the Trump administration’s muted response to journalist Jamal Khashoggi’s murder in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

Raw Story reported that MSNBC “cut Brzezinski’s audio” as a result of the comment. An MSNBC spokesperson declined to comment.
