Now that “Morning Joe”‘s Mika Brzezinski has apparently seen the light on Donald Trump’s true threat to Democracy, she isn’t afraid to call him out frequently, but it leaves the rest of us wondering why it took her so long?

During broadcast this week, Mika proclaimed that Trump’s behavior “[is] not funny anymore,” but for most of us, it never was!

“The fact remains that he never stepped up,” Brzezinski said. “He only doubled down. He hasn’t even tried to think about what impact he might be having on this country or that he could have. He hasn’t tried to educate himself. He hasn’t tried to tell the truth. He’s still doing a reality show and having fun on his whim and laughing.”

That was Mika and the rest of Conservative media’s mistake – thinking that they could work with Trump, or that he might “pivot” or “soften” the hateful words he spews. Now that they are stuck with him, some find themselves too overwhelmed at the possibility of being forever tied to an orange demagogue and instead revolt.
