As Twitchy reported, yesterday Mika Brzezinski said Mike Pompeo is ‘just a wannabe-dictator’s butt boy’ (SAY WHAT?!), and then this morning Mika was mysteriously missing from her Morning Joe co-hosting gig.
Things that make you go, ‘Hrmmmm …’:
Mika Brzezinski was not on Morning Joe this morning due to "a long-planned family event." https://t.co/xkwJgDtuuS

Sounds like they’re claiming it was due to a long-planned family event.
From the Washington Examiner:
“ Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski was absent from the show Thursday morning, one day after she called Secretary of State Mike Pompeo a “wannabe dictator’s butt boy.”
“Mika has the day off with her family — a long-planned family event, which she’s sorry she’s not here because we are going to be talking about baseball most of the morning,” Brzezinski’s co-host Joe Scarborough said Thursday morning. “She’ll be back with us tomorrow.”
Tell us another one, Joe.
So she was suspended.

They are gonna keep her out of sight until they think this blows over and then let her keep her job. They only call for conservatives to lose their jobs for these types of offenses. Even if they apologize it doesn’t matter.
