Mika Brzezinski Uses Bush’s Passing to Denounce Trump

17 views

Mika Brzezinski, on her first morning back from her honeymoon with co-host Joe Scarborough, opened Monday’s Morning Joe by using the passing of former President George H.W. Bush to denigrate the current president. “This morning we remember his life and his tremendous legacy, and how his approach to leadership stands in stark contrast with the politics and the news and the policies of today.”

She contrasted Bush’s half century of accomplishments in the military and politics with how “over the last two years deviancy has continued being defined down by this current president.” She concluded: “The presidency does not shape character, it reveals it in a raw fashion and that is why we celebrate George H.W. Bush’s legacy and fear the next two years of Mr. Trump’s wild White House ride.”

Brzezinski began her harangue after running, at the top of the show, this clip from Bush addressing Congress in January of 1991:

“What is at stake is more than one small country, it is a big idea, a new world order, where diverse nations are drawn together in common cause to achieve the universal aspirations of mankind, peace and security, freedom, and the rule of law. Such is a world worthy of our struggle and worthy of our children’s future.”

Brzezinski then intoned, over video of glad-handing between Vladimir Putin and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman:

“Twenty-seven years after President Bush called for international order, the strong men of Saudi Arabia and Russia celebrated the lack of it as America pulls back under Donald Trump. Friday marked that sharp split as the 41st President of the United States, George Herbert Walker Bush, died at the age of 94. This morning we remember his life and his tremendous legacy, and how his approach to leadership stands in stark contrast with the politics and the news and the policies of today. Welcome to Morning Joe...”

She soon added:

“What becomes undeniably obvious with every bio run about Bush 41 is that stark contrast between these two men. Bush served in the military, treated people with respect and dignity and put country ahead of party and self time and time again over his half century in public service. Half century. Over the last two years deviancy has continued being defined down by this current president, his cronies, his supporters, who love telling reporters that they don’t care how deviant his behavior becomes....

“As is always the case, the presidency does not shape character, it reveals it in a raw fashion and that is why we celebrate George H.W. Bush’s legacy and fear the next two years of Mr. Trump’s wild White House ride.”
