(NationalSentinel) If you want to fully understand why the ‘mainstream media’ is every bit an “enemy” of the American people, just like President Donald Trump has said, MSNBC “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski provided a stellar example this morning.
As reported by Grabian News, seems that Brzezinski and her co-host, Joe Scarborough, former “Republican” congressman from Florida, are still upset by Trump’s characterization of them and the rest of the Beltway-New York media, which has relentlessly attacked Trump since he won the Nov. 8 election, as well as published fake news story after fake news story featuring a host of unsubstantiated allegations and insinuations that have turned out to be bogus.
But what really has them going is that Trump has more mojo than they and their brothers and sisters in the establishment media - and that’s just not fair or right. After all, it is they, not the president, who determine the narratives of the day and what Americans should be thinking.
Here’s the exchange:
While discussing President Trump’s entreaties to the American people to remain skeptical of the press, Bzezinski worried that if the economy turns south, Americans may end up trusting him over the media.
“And it could be that while unemployment and the economy worsens, he could have undermined the messaging so much that he can actually control exactly what people think,” Brzezinski said. “And that, that is our job.”
SCARBOROUGH: “Exactly. That is exactly what I hear. What Yamiche said is what I hear from all the Trump supporters that I talk to who were Trump voters and are still Trump supporters. They go, ‘Yeah you guys are going crazy. He’s doing — what are you so surprised about? He is doing exactly what he said he is going to do.'”

BRZEZINSKI: “Well, I think that the dangerous, you know, edges here are that he is trying to undermine the media and trying to make up his own facts. And it could be that while unemployment and the economy worsens, he could have undermined the messaging so much that he can actually control exactly what people think. And that, that is our job.”
The comment failed to raise any eyebrows from her co-panelists. Instead, her co-host, Joe Scarborough, said that Trump’s media antagonism puts him on par with Mussolini and Lenin.
SCARBOROUGH: “It’s the — it’s the ground noise that he is throwing out there also, whether he is questioning, Mark, the legitimacy of federal judges to do what they have done since Marbury v. Madison. It’s when he says the media is the, quote -“
SCARBOROUGH: “- ‘enemy of the people’, where he sounds like Mussolini or Lenin which obviously causes concern that phrase right there makes him sound more like a dictator in training, when he sends Stephen Miller out and says, basically the president has absolute power, he shall not be questioned.”
The other nonsense aside - that Trump is Mussolini and Lenin (actually, that’s the Left in America, Joe) and that Trump ‘shall not be questioned’ - Brzezinski’s brutal, if unintended, honesty tells you everything you need to know about why the establishment media is as mistrusted as it is loathed. But it also tells you why they are so upset with Trump - he’s taken away their ability to be relevant.
And they hate that about him more than anything else.
