MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski cried on Monday that her dear friends were embarrassed to be Americans when they were on a holiday trip to Paris, France.
The Morning Joe co-host tied her friends’ embarrassment to the Trump presidency, apparently unaware of how callous and out-of-touch her admission made her sound.
“I had a friend that went to Paris over the holiday, and they said they were just viscerally embarrassed to be American,” Brzezinski claimed. “They said it was the first time that it was sort of chilling.”
“They didn’t even want to share where they were from,” she continued.
At one point, Brzezinski’s fiancé Joe Scarborough joked that her friends must have gone to “Paris, Texas,” but Brzezinski confirmed she was talking about Paris, France.
Maybe Mika’s friends should stay in Paris if they’re too embarrassed to admit that they are American. We might be better off.
