“Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski said that only a “moron” would attack the free press, while discussing President Donald Trump’s tweets on media licensing Thursday.
“President Trump reacted to yesterday’s NBC News’ exclusive report about what happened during a meeting at the Pentagon last July by attacking the press and seemingly freedom of the press,” Brzezinski said.
Trump called mainstream media networks “fake news,” questioning their legitimacy and asking if their licenses should be revoked.
Brzezinski cited a New York Times article that read, “Networks themselves do not hold federal licenses, their individual television stations do.”
“I mean only a moron would think that anyhow,” Brzezinski said.
