Mika Brzezinski, co-host of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” questioned and attacked the Christian faith of Mike Huckabee Tuesday over comments the Republican presidential candidate made about President Obama’s Iran deal. “I really like Mike Huckabee,” the brittle Brzezinski complained. “He’s been a friend of the show for years. He’s sat at this table many times. He’s smarty, witty, charming…. I don’t agree with everything he has to say but I love that he’s a man of deep religious convictions, or so I thought.”
Later in the show, an even more brittle and bitter Brzezinski praised Jeb Bush for being personally “hurt” by Huckabee’s comments, before again attacking the former Arkansas governor’s faith. “[Jeb Bush is] saying the right thing when the right thing needs to be said, and not saying the wrong thing. Certainly staying away from crazy comments. From destructive comments. From vitriolic comments. From quite frankly, uncivil comments — quite frankly, un-Christian comments.”
In a desperate attempt to keep the attacks on Huckabee and the GOP alive, like the rest of the media, Brzezinski is still pretending to be outraged by comments Huckabee made to Breitbart News over the weekend, when he said of the Iran deal, “This president’s foreign policy is the most feckless in American history. It is so naive that he would trust the Iranians. By doing so, he will take the Israelis and march them to the door of the oven.”
Six million Jews died in those ovens.
Currently, a little over six million Jews live in Israel.
Iran has repeatedly threatened a “holocaust” against Israel.
Obama’s deal with Iran gives the terrorist country the billions of dollars they need to keep that promise.
Obama’s deal is almost certainly going to ensure Iran gets the nuclear weapon they need to keep that promise.
Huckabee’s comments weren’t outrageous, if anything they were a little too on-the-nose.
It is quite obvious that the secular Brzezinski doesn’t understand that one very important tenet of the Christian faith is to loudly and clearly speak unpopular truths.
The only real moral outrage here (other than Obama selling out Israel) is Brzezinski prioritizing protecting Obama above speaking the truth.
