While visiting in France last week, President Trump paid a compliment to the First Lady of France by stating she was in great shape physically. The media had a field day with Trump’s comments, claiming the president was “hitting” on the French first lady, or “flirting” with her.
In friendly conversation, Trump was overhead telling First Lady Brigitte Macron, “You’re in such good shape… beautiful.”
The subject came up again on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” panel Monday morning, and co-host Mika Brzezinski ended up creating an awkward situation for herself when she attempted to mock President Trump’s compliments even further.
Mika, in an attempt to show how it might sound if the situation were reversed, told the panel that MSNBC reporter Kasie Hunt thought both panelist Bob Costa and her co-host Joe Scarborough were “in great physical shape. I mean, like, really beautiful.”
Her comment befuddled Hunt, who didn’t understand the joke, which created an awkward silence that Scarborough finally had to interrupt, saying, “I’m going to jump in right here, Mika. We have a 47 second delay so this really isn’t the time to have awkward silences… because Bob and you look even more awkward than usual.”
