Mika Brzezinski: U.S. Is ‘Flying Completely Blind’ As Trump Lacks ‘The Mentality to Lead Us’

MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski slammed President Donald Trump’s response to Covid-19 on Monday. The Morning Joe host disagreed with her co-host Joe Scarborough and was not reassured by Trump’s most recent press conference.

Scarborough said that Sunday’s press conference had more ‘positives’ than previous ‘frightening’ installments, but Brzezinski simply did not agree that things had improved. Scarborough had some criticism of the President, however.

“Harry Truman says the buck stops here and in a pandemic, the buck doesn’t stop with the governor. The buck stops with the White House. This was the mistake George W. Bush made during Katrina,” Scarborough said.

Brzezinski’s comments were harsher.

“I didn’t see much difference between yesterday’s update and any of the others. In fact, I thought it was a lot worse,” she said.

“The entire country is flying blind. Flying completely blind as to whether or not they’ve had it, have it or are going to get it,” Brzezinski said.

“That’s where we are right now still. And the President talking about his salary, making snarky comments about Mitt Romney, this is a man who does not have the mentality to lead us through this crisis.”
