Mika Brzezinkski: Ivanka ‘Sick,’ ‘Twisted’ for Thanking Trump for Reunited Migrant Families

Friday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” co-host Mika Brzezinski said Ivanka Trump was “sick” and “twisted” for tweeting a thank you to her father, President Donald Trump for issuing an executive order ending the family separation policy when they crossing the U.S.-Mexico border illegally.

After playing a clip of Angelica Gonzalez-Garcia being reunited with her 8-year-old daughter after being separated for 55 days, Brzezinski said, “For some reason, some people who work for President Trump, including his daughter, are twisting this and actually thanking President Trump for creating moments like this. How sick, how sick for someone in the White House to tweet, thank you to Donald Trump for these reunions. Because these reunions, they should have never happened. These children should have never been taken away from their parents.”

She added, “Thank you, President Trump? How sick. And how twisted. We are doing this with our policy and we are twisting the truth to make it look like the president created a happy day for these people? How utterly sick. This is not where we need to be.”
