Tuesday, MSNBC “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski called out Republicans for allowing President Donald Trump to “run roughshod” on the United States’ foreign policy in the wake of the debate over the president’s phone call Ukraine and his choice to pull soldiers out of Syria.
Brzezinski advised members of the GOP to check Trump on his actions instead of “protecting” and “schilling for him.”
” I believe it’s worth looking at a few of the Republicans who have actually been protecting this president and schilling for him,” Brzezinski argued. “Specifically simply looking in the past three days that Jim Jordan or Ron Johnson or Lindsey Graham on the Ukraine scandal, ‘Ah, he doesn’t suggest it,’ to what he said to George Stephanopoulos about taking dirt on a rival, ‘Ah, he doesn’t imply it,’ to his love affair with Kim Jong-un, ‘He does not suggest it.’ Truly?”
She continued, “How about if he had said, ‘You understand what? I’m going to desert our Kurdish allies and then ignite a slaughter.’ Would you state he just doesn’t indicate if he simply said that? Since he’s doing it. You have actually let this president run roughshod on our diplomacy. You’ve never ever called him into check. Look where we are right now. He does not mean it?”
