I wouldn’t have thought so, either, but here’s the unimpeachable proof. Yep, it’s Mika Brzezinski, the MSNBC hack who enjoyed a brief shining moment acting the part of a real journalist in her pull-no-punches interview with Joe Biden a few Fridays ago, back to her regularly scheduled programming. And that means relentlessly attacking Donald Trump for the ills of the world.

In this segment, she is taking the president to task for his mismanagement of the coronavirus pandemic, which is nothing new. But the charge she makes against him at 0:13 in the video that follows must be heard to be believed.

Maybe my hearing is going, but I could swear that Mrs. Morning Joe just accused Trump of “spreading germs on Twitter.” She even repeats the name of the platform, as though she herself finds it hard to believe.

I realize that the experts are forever updating their public guidelines — now they are telling us that COVID-19 “does not spread easily” through contact with contaminated surfaces. But if they have now determined that the virus can be spread through social media, shouldn’t they be making more of a point of emphasizing this discovery?
