Mika Brzezinski Has a New Toughest ‘Get’…Her Father

MikaYou would think the easiest guest bookings for TV news hosts would be family, but MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski showed that’s not always the case this morning on “Morning Joe.”

“Is my dad coming on today?” Brzezinski asked at the top a segment on ongoing violence in Ukraine.

“No…he turned us down,” Mika said about her father, a former U.S. National Security Advisor.

Her panel then began a round of teasing at Mika’s expense about her father appearing everywhere but on “Morning Joe.”

“I heard him on Bloomberg Radio this morning,” guest Steve Rattner said. “What?” a disturbed Brzezinski responded.

“He’s probably on CNN right now, Mika,” co-host Joe Scarborough said mockingly. “C’mon, you need to talk to your dad.” Andrea Mitchell then pointed out Mika’s father was on “The Daily Rundown” with her on Tuesday.
