MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski told Republicans they can’t let President Donald Trump’s rhetoric continue after the week’s bomb scares.

“What happened may not be the president’s doing, but it is a reflection of his rhetoric,” Brzezinski said on “Morning Joe” Thursday. (RELATED: ‘Morning Joe’s’ Mika Claims She Feels ‘Terrible’ For Trump Supporters Who Are ‘Pawns’ Of The President)

“That’s important to note. And note to Republicans, this is something you can’t let go by any more,” she continued. “You can’t. Our country is at risk.”

In addition to CNN’s New York Bureau, “potential explosive devices” had reportedly been sent to the Clinton residence and former President Barack Obama. The Secret Service was able to intercept the devices and keep the families out of danger.

Billionaire George Soros also reportedly received an explosive device in his mailbox at his home in New York.


Two more similar devices were reportedly sent to former Vice President Joe Biden and Hollywood actor Robert De Niro as well.

Brzezinski said the GOP can no longer be selective about which parts of Trump they accept and which parts they condemn and called on them to “step up” and “do the right thing.”

“We have been attacked. It’s no longer okay to say, ‘I don’t like his tweets, but’ — it’s no longer okay to say, ‘I don’t like his bullying, but ‘– it’s no longer okay to say, ‘well I didn’t really support that, but.’ It’s no longer okay to say nothing. To not answer questions, to not speak out when it is very clear that we have dangerous rhetoric … from the White House every day … I am begging Republicans to step up, do the right thing,” she added.

“Do not turn away and turn your back to it. Please don’t. Please don’t.”
