(Allow me to go on the record and state I am NOT a Russell Brand fan, I think his sophomoric humor is absurd. He is a less than talented actor and his personal choices are not to my liking.) Never the less, Brand was booked as a guest on the Morning Joe show.
In the introduction, Mika Brzezinski, with her pouted upper lip and nose in the air proclaimed that she was “told” this was a “really big deal.” Mika went on to proclaim that she was “not very pop cultured” and feigned ignorance to Brand’s very existence.
EARTH TO MIKA…. stop being rude to your guests! Your above it all, blue blood attitude wears thin to the viewers and guests.
Here is a novel idea, do a little research BEFORE the red light goes on.
If you are going to have someone on your show, at least do them the service of knowing what they are on to discuss and maybe just maybe know something about them.
We all get it, you don’t want to talk about anything but politics and how Americans are going to hell because we don’t eat right… we get it Mika, but there is more to your show than that and if you are going to be a HOST maybe you should do a service to the guests and viewer and not be rude!!!!!
Today Mika “apologized” for the interview with Russell Brand and for “not knowing” who he was. The less than sincere apology revolved around the hatred that Mika had received through the Twitter-verse and not about how she disrespected a guest.
Mika, I have been a fan of Morning Joe for years, I have praised the show and the hosts on numerous occasions. I remain a loyal fan and honestly, I don’t tune in for the Russell Brand style interviews either, but if you are going to have them, at least be respectful and get over yourself with the attitude!
