MSNBC “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski spoke directly into the camera this morning to ask Donald Trump if he lied when he accused former President Obama of wiretapping Trump Tower during the campaign.
“We’re just asking the question. I would like to know the answer to the question. Were you lying, Mr. President? Did you make it up? Was it some sort of little spurt of activity that you had out of need to have action? If the president was lying, don’t you think at some point he ought to say, ‘I apologize, I am just an idiot?'”
“I’d like to know where it came from because it’s a very serious allegation. And it questions everything that you’re about. And it questions whether we can ever believe you and whether Americans can believe you.
And whether this country is being run by someone who thinks this is a serious job or thinks it’s a joke and he can amuse himself on twitter every single day just ‘cause he feels like it. And spew out lies about people and call them names and make defaming claims about their reputation just because he feels like it.”
