MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski said she felt “terrible” for President Donald Trump’s supporters, on “Morning Joe” Friday, because they’re being played like “pawns” and being made to look “stupid.”

Brzezinski’s co-host Joe Scarborough played a clip of the president talking about former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her possible ties to Russia, before calling him a scam artist.

“Sorry. Who is stupid enough to believe that?” he asked. “I just got to ask the question. Who is stupid enough to believe that?”

Scarborough also expressed pity for Trump’s followers and called the president a “snake oil salesman.” (RELATED: ‘Morning Joe’s’ Mika Labels Sarah Huckabee Sanders A ‘Flack For A Misogynist’)


“There is no evidence that the Democrats colluded with Russia, never has been, never will be,” he continued.

“So the question I ask again is who does Donald Trump believe in that audience is so stupid as to believe that? And why does he continue insulting people that spend a lot of time going to his rallies?” he said. “He’s making fools of them and I feel really bad for them because he’s such a snake oil salesman.”

Brzezinski agreed with Scarborough and referred to the president’s supporters as “pawns” who’ve being taken advantage of.

“I’m really glad you said that because I do think he’s using them as pawns and I feel terrible for what he is doing to these people who are so excited to come to his rally, to see the president of the United States and then he uses them like that and makes them look stupid,” she said.
