On Friday’s episode of Morning Joe, co-host Mika Brzezinski seemed to suggest that President Donald Trump isn’t really First Son Barron Trump’s father.
The panel was discussing former Vice President Joe Biden’s performance on Thursday when co-host Joe Scarborough referenced to Trump’s statement during a photo op announcing the banning of flavored vaping products.
At that event, Trump remarked that “that’s how the First Lady got involved. She’s got a son — together — that is a, a beautiful young man.”
At one point Scarborough said, “We’re going to have a new segment on Morning Joe and it’s going to be called ‘Adventures in Syntax’,” and added “We’re going to have Donald Trump yesterday in the White House talking about Melania’s son, and mumbling the word together.”
“Maybe it is Melania’s son,” Brzezinski said.
“It is Melania’s son,” Scarborough replied.
“That’s what he was saying, it was just her son. That’s not — that’s just what he said,” Brzezinski said, with a smile.
After an awkward pause, Scarborough said “Let me get back to Biden because I don’t know what you’re saying.”
“Well, it seems like he didn’t remember Barron’s name or…” Brzezinski said.
“Just stop,” Scarborough said. “We’ll let the tape play itself, okay?”
Mika Brzezinski’s comments didn’t go unnoticed on Twitter. Many users quickly pointed out that she is “blinded by her bitterness.”
“She was never too bright but now Mika has just become engulfed and blinded by her bitterness” wrote one user.
“What an awful thing to suggest. SMDH” added another user.
“Can she get any lower? Probably“
“Oh, come on, @morningmika . The kid looks like Trump.” noted another user.
“Can they be that stupid? He spoke that way because he was referencing Melania and her concerns as the mother she is of a teenager. But they know this and don’t care how dumb they make themselves look.” wrote other user.
