Caught on Hot Mic During Break, Morning Joe's Mika Asks If She Should Ask Trump About Deportations, To Which He Replies "That's Right, Nothing Too Hard"

Before getting to that, Mike made some news when she announced she knows a print reporter has the transcripts of Hillary's Wall Street speeches and is "working" on publishing them.

Newsbuster's Tom Blumer asks if, however, the media will cover this up the same as the LA Times did when it refused to publish video of Obama giving a speech in favor of a Palestinian radical back in 2008.

On to the headline story. Gawker published this, and they deserve that credit (if they continue on this track they may actually gain some of the credibility they lost with their more prurient exposees), but actually the first to break the story (so far as I know) was comedian Harry Shearer on his "Le Show" podcast. Click down to "Found Items" here, at 21:25, to hear the mic recording Joe Scarborough, Mike Brezinski, and Trump talking during a commercial break during the "Trump Townhall" -- an event already widely criticized as puff-piece softball for Scarborough's apparent close friend Donald Trump.

From what I understand, Mike Brezinsky says she wasn't asking Trump which question to ask, and so she says she wasn't asking him if it was okay to ask about deportations. She claims she was asking her producer, over, I guess, the mic.

And I guess she would further claim that while Trump answered the question -- "No, nothing too hard" -- in fact the question wasn't posed to him.

Mika's explanation seems plausible; it also seems convenient. I can't say whether she's telling the truth or not.

By the way, don't take this as an "anti-Trump" piece. It's about Joe Scarborough and Mika Brezinsky, not Trump. They're the ones tasked with being both independent and probing with Trump. He's not tasked with insisting they be so.
