“Morning Joe” Hosts Claim Conway Complained About Defending Trump Off-Air

“Morning Joe” host Mika Brzezinski said on Monday’s broadcast that Kellyanne Conway complained to both her and her co-host, Joe Scarborough, in private conversations about defending Trump.

Both Brzezinski and Scarborough claim Kellyanne told them she had taken the job for the money. According to them, Kellyanne once mentioned how she’d “have to take a shower, because it feels so dirty to be saying what I’m saying.”

Brzezinski said “She would get off the air, the camera would be turned off, the microphone would be taken off, and she would say ‘Blech, I need to take a shower,’ because she disliked her candidate so much.”

On Tuesday, Kellyanne tweeted out a response to the “Morning Joe” hosts’ claims. She called their claims “absurd.”

“Ignoring insults and insinuations is valuable skills,” she said, “but when sentiments are attributed to me that are not true, it is necessary to respond.”

In February, Brzezinski stated that she would no longer allow Conway on the show, citing her tendency to say false and incorrect things on-air. Scarborough added that he does not think “she’s saying something she knows to be untrue.”

Last week, she reiterated her position on Conway appearing on the show. She labeled Conway “not credible” and criticized media outlets for bringing Conway onto their shows. “Your hosts look pained when they interview her,” Brzezinski said, “because they know they’re just doing politics porn.”
