Mika Brzezinski Blasts ‘Shallow and Transactional’ Fox News for ‘Trashing’ John Bolton

Morning Joe host Mika Brzezinski took aim at Fox News on Tuesday for their treatment of former National Security Adviser John Bolton. The MSNBC personality had harsh words for the conservative network’s sudden turn against a lifelong conservative.

“And even his [Trump’s] followers and his folks on Fox, this constant, you know, watching people who have broken the loyalty oath, and watch how they get so easily tossed out,” Brzezinski said.

“I mean, the slandering now of Bolton. All of a sudden he’s the enemy. All of a sudden you hear people on Fox trashing him. It’s so unbelievably transactional and shallow I would think that Trump’s followers even, some of them, might feel a little unnerved watching this people constantly failing the loyalty oath and getting tossed out.”

“And again you better believe that there are some people on Fox who will actually be defending John Bolton,” co-host Joe Scarborough said.

“Why? Because John Bolton has been a part of the conservative movement his entire adult life.”

“Well you would think,” Brzezinski replied.

Scarborough then predicted that there may be trouble among conservatives if these attacks continue.

“I think every attack against Bolton actually is going to have a backlash in certain corners of the conservative movement,” he said.
