As I mentioned earlier, Mika Brzezinski got slammed for using a pretty vulgar slur against Mike Pompeo on air:
.@morningmika just asked if Mike Pompeo is a “wannabe dictator’s butt boy,” as homophobic a term as I’ve heard on national morning television. @MSNBC tried and failed to censor it, and did not transcribe her remark in the closed captioning. #journalism pic.twitter.com/3zK7H8evjh

A “wannabe dictator’s butt boy?” Really, Mika?
As I said then, I legitimately doubt Mika will have any consequences from this. MSNBC has made it clear they’re VERY against this kind of thing… unless it comes from one of their unhinged liberal personalities. In which case, they’ll happily sweep it all under the rug.
I mean, Joy Reid is still around, isn’t she?
Why does this surprise anyone? @JoyAnnReid tossed around countless homophobic and anti-Semitic slurs & @MSNBC did nothing. By doing nothing, they sent a message that anti-Semitism and homophobia is tolerated on their network. https://t.co/aEN1iDp7rB

Well… she has now issued an “informal” apology of sorts:
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

Whatever. Can it, Mika.
It’s all so grossly hypocritical.
