Mika’s praying for ‘friend’ of Morning Joe who is now under fire for sexual harassment

MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski again addressed the scandal surrounding her “friend” Mark Halperin and his suspension by NBC following allegations of sexual harassment.

A regular part of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Halperin was suspended by the network Thursday, hours after the accusations by five female former coworkers were revealed. Brzezinski addressed the breaking story before the suspension was announced Thursday.

On Friday, she spoke again on behalf of herself and co-host Joe Scarborough about the colleague who allegedly  propositioned female coworkers for sex, groped women’s breasts and kissed them without consent during his tenure at ABC News.

“Mark and Karen have been a part of Morning Joe’s extended family for years, they’re our friend,” Brzezinski began, mentioning Halperin’s wife.

“We believe it’s important to stand with our friends for even the most difficult of times.” she continued.

“I’ve spoken to, and heard from, some of these women. I feel their pain and I understand the difficult position they were in, because I’ve been through enough in this business to know what I hear,” Brzezinski said.

“I will speak for both Joe and myself here: Our hearts break for both Mark and his family, because he is our friend,” she concluded, saying they “fully support” NBC’s decision.

“And we’re not going to avoid the story just because he’s our friend…we’re going to cover it and we’re going to pray for everybody involved,” she added.

Twitter users were not impressed with Brzezinski’s attempt to walk the line between compassion and justice.
