Mika Brzezinski: ‘I have never gotten more vitriol and anger’ Than After Russell Brand Interview

MSNBC “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski says that the response to the show’s interview with comedian Russell Brand earlier this week was one of the most intense she’s ever seen.

“I didn’t know Russell, and I don’t think Russell liked that,” Brzezinski said this morning. “I have never gotten more vitriol and anger and hatred than I have over this, so I apologize for not knowing.

“I am sorry, it was a very long day,” she added.
