MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski is saying no to future appearances by senior White House counselor Kellyanne Conway.
The “Morning Joe” co-host called Conway’s credibility into question, announcing that she would no longer say yes to Conway’s texts requesting an interview.
“I know for a fact she tries to book herself on this show. I won’t do it,” Brzezinski said on Wednesday.
“I don’t believe in fake news or information that is not true. That is — every time I’ve ever seen her on television something is askew, off or incorrect,” she said.
Co-host Joe Scarborough suggested that Conway may not knowingly have given false information while appearing on several other news programs.
“I don’t even think she’s saying something she knows to be untrue,” Scarborough said. “She’s just saying things just to get in front of the TV set to prove her relevance because behind the scenes she’s not in these meetings and any reporter can ask anybody in that White House and they will say the same thing. She’s not in the meetings. So why does the president allow her to keep going out and spreading false information?”
Brzezinski responded with a blunt, “She’s not credible anymore.”
“I will say: Kellyanne Conway does not need to text our show, just as long as I’m on it,” Brzezinski continued, “because it’s not happening here.”
