During MSNBC’s Thursday broadcast of “Morning Joe,” host Mike Brzezinski stated she doesn’t believe Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is motivated by a love of country.
“Look, all of the people you just named — whether you supported them or not — they all had one thing in common,” Brzezinski explained. “I’m sorry to say this, but they all loved this country, and I don’t get that” from Donald Trump.
“I don’t get a person who is driven by a love of country or a respect for Democracy or respect for the principles it’s built upon,” she added. “He’s just running it over.”
Brzezinski clarified that she knows it’s “a horrible thing to say, and it’s taken a long time to say it, but I just don’t feel it.”
“You have people on both sides of the aisle who may have made mistakes along the way or let us down along the way, but they love this country.”
“You don’t think Donald loves this country?” posed co-host Joe Scarborough.
“I’m saying I don’t think he’s driven by that,” Brzezinski responded. “I’m sure he loves this country, and he loves making money in it, but I don’t think he’s driven by it.”
