Mika Brzezinski Calls Out Trump’s ‘Truly Pathetic’ Hypocrisy on His ‘Total Authority’

MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski highlighted President Donald Trump’s hypocrisy on Tuesday after the President claimed to have ‘total authority’ to reopen the states. In fact, the state governors will ultimately make the decision to end Coronavirus measures.

The Morning Joe host pointed out that early on in the crisis, Trump refused to act decisively and said governors were responsible for containing the virus. He also attacked some Democratic governors. Brzezinski was also critical of a ‘propaganda video’ shown at Monday’s press conference.

“Then his top scientists were sitting there, watching this video instead of doing what they need to do to save lives,” Brzezinski said.

“So let’s see, you’ve got your scientists at your two-hour press conferences. You won’t invoke the Defense Production Act to actually coordinate something nationally and use your power. You won’t do that?”

“And then you say it’s all on the governors” she said. “So the governors step up. They step up and they try and help. They step up to fill the void in leadership that you left wide open and you told was on them. And now you’re freaking out”

“This is truly pathetic but sad for Americans who are struggling through this, who need so much more from the President of the United States and the White House, the people in the White House who work for him.”

Brzezinski suggested Trump is worried about governors are ‘outshining’ him.
