Donald J. Trump seeks gay sex: Yesterday morning, we watched one of the strangest Morning Joe programs yet.
Inevitably, the strangeness involved Mika Brzezinski, who should be a political analyst in roughly the same way we should be running the Bolshoi Ballet.
Mika's conduct was so strange that we weren't sure we had heard what we thought we'd heard. As it turned out, we had heard what we thought we'd heard. To wit:
Mika seemed to be speculating that Donald J. Trump and Billy Bush had enjoyed some sort of "manroll in the hay" during the famous bus ride which produced the Access Hollywood tape.
More specifically, Mika seems to say that Trump made some sort of sexual play for Bush during that famous bus ride. As she vowed to say this, then did say it, Joe kept trying to make her stop.
Below, we'll link you to the pair of tapes in question. Perhaps for obvious reasons, Morning Joe's producers didn't post the second tape, where Mika finally spouted. The Washington Free Beacon did.
The background goes like this:
On the first tape, Mika starts to say that she's going to share her theory about what really happened on the bus ride which produced the Access Hollywood tape. Scoldingly, in apparent exasperation, Joe keeps telling her that she isn't going to do that.
Mika keeps saying she will. Starting at 6:19 AM, the semi-lunatic dialogue goes like this, absent some over-talking:
MIKA (11/27/17): Still ahead on Morning Joe, President Trump reportedly suggests the Access Hollywood tape is not authentic.At this point, John Heilemann tries to change the subject, but Mika persists.
Of course he does. He's already apologized for it!
We're going to dig into that, and I have my own take.
I know what happened on that tape, and I'm going to tell you. Because it's not what you think.
JOE: He apologized?
MIKA: He did.
JOE: But he says it's fake now?
MIKA. He says it's fake. Well, I'll tell you, there is something that has been massively misunderstood about it.
JOE: No, you can't. You can't say that on TV.
MIKA: Yes, I can. And I'm going to.
JOE: No, you can't. No, you're not.
MIKA: I am! Listen very carefully, because I want everybody to listen to it. And then you're going to hear what I hear.
JOE: Mika's not going to—
MIKA: I am.
JOE: It's a theory.
MIKA: No. It is a theory. And since theories are apparently on Maga Pig website true, I'm going to put mine out there.
"I'm 100 percent right, by the way. I'm always right about these things," she weirdly says. As Joe continues talking over her, she then says this, apparently correctly:
"I'm scaring Joe."
After a commercial break, the next segment starts. Sure enough, Mika does share her peculiar "theory" about what happened on the bus that day:
She seems to say that Donald J. Trump made some sort of sex play for Billy Bush. You can watch that second videotape at this Free Beacon post. Mika's theory comes near the 2:45 mark, as Joe tries to make her stop.
Mika has always been very strange. Beyond that, wealth and fame can be very destructive.
Is Mika completely losing it? Over the past twenty years, it has been stunning to see how crazy behavior has taken place right on TV, in plain sight, as our corporate "cable news" culture has started devouring the nation.
(All the obedient liberal careerists know they mustn't mention such things, except when the craziness can be seen on Fox.)
Even for her, Mika has been very strange in the past two days. On yesterday's tape, you can hear her offer her crazy, unexplained theory about Donald J. Trump's "misunderstood" play for Billy Bush.
Mika says Trump's play for Bush has been massively misunderstood. Joe tried and tried, then tried again, to dear God make her stop.
