Co-host of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” Mika Brzezinski said Trump administration officials are “too stupid or smart” to challenge President Donald Trump on anything.
She called out Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, DHS secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and Ivanka Trump for thinking they have no other choice, but to follow the president blindly on major issues like immigration.

“This is a massive PR fail. And as far as his daughter saying something to him? Ivanka Trump has counseled to the president, you need to step up, I know you won’t. You need to step up and speak for yourself,” Brzezinski said Wednesday. “But keep in mind the way Trump works with people close to him, like Ivanka and other who is work for him, is those people actually don’t have to step up and take questions. They’re too feckless, too stupid or smart enough not to actually put themselves out there.”
“They get protected by the inner circle. Which is very small around this president,” she continued. “People like secretary Nielsen, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Sean Spicer at one point, they’re forced out there to make fools of themselves. Because they have no choice, they think. You do have a choice. And we need more people to step up.”
