On “Morning Joe” today, Sen. John McCain accused Mika Brzezinski of being “a supporter for Obama” and ribbed her for never visiting McCain’s website to research the issues.
“‘Supporter of Sen. Obama?’ I’m not sure I would characterize myself that way, but that’s okay.” Brzezinski later added: “I take objection to that.”
With a smile, McCain later called his comment “a cheap shot.”
Reviewing the episode, Brzezinski said: “I think he was kidding, to an extent. But I think that was bad joke in some ways because it’s a little bit hard for a journalist to be made fun of in that way. … No one has been more defensive about Sarah Palin as a working mother than me and I’ve taken on my own peers.”
