Kari Lake ran into leftist MSNBC hosts of “Morning Joe” Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough at Palm Beach International Airport, which quickly turned south.
Speaking with Steven Bannon on his “War Room” podcast, Lake said she introduced herself as the person they “spend an awful lot of time badmouthing” on their show.
Lake explained that Joe initially seemed “nice”; however, Mika wasn’t so much.
“I happened to be at the airport and … I was leaving, and I happened to see Joe Scarborough,” Lake told Bannon.
“He was heading into the restroom and I said, ‘Hey, Joe!'” Lake recalled. “And he was nice. He said, ‘Hey!'”
However, Brzezinski seemed less than happy about seeing Lake.
She was “not very pleasant,” Lake said.
Things then became somewhat frosty when Brzezinski whipped out her phone and began recording.
“I said, ‘Are you recording me?'” Lake recalled.
Lake said Scarborough told his wife, “Don’t do that.”
“He was a little bit perturbed that she was recording,” Lake observed.
Tensions began rise when one of the “Morning Joe” couple’s handlers erupted on Kari Lake.
“You’re a liar. You’re an election denier. You’re delusional!” the handler shouted.
The handler presumably referred to Lake questioning her state’s gubernatorial election results and her lawsuit to have them overturned.
“I’m in this because I’m a mom concerned about my children’s future,” Lake told Bannon. “That’s why I got into politics.”
Lake wanted to say hello to the leftist anchors because she felt they needed to see the person they mercilessly attack so often.
“You guys like to bash 24/7, and that’s okay. But I just wanted to introduce myself,” Lake told the MSNBC couple. “I just wanted to, you know, put the human being behind the face that you guys kind of go after.”
Lake is not backing down from election claims, as she told Bannon.
“I know that they [Joe, Mika and the staffer] don’t believe—or I actually do think they believe there’s election fraud—but they’re denying it. They’re denying the fraud because they don’t want the people to be aware of just how messed up our elections are, and that they’re really theater, and we don’t have a say in who we’re choosing,” Lake said.
Bannon then took at the handler (staffer) for overstepping their bounds:
“No, but I got to tell you for, for, for Joe Scarborough or for Mika, for her either body man or for the handler that was there—you can’t have a staffer jumping in principle. The world just doesn’t work like that. A staffer’s got to know their place,” Bannon said.
“You’re a producer, you’re a staffer—keep your mouth shut, and just, and just nod. Let Mika, if she’s got something to say to Kari, that she’s delusional, let her say it or let Joe Scarborough say it,” he added.
“But that just shows you a lack of professionalism, of control,” Bannon said.
“Personally, I agree that the staffer was out of line, but I don’t think that Joe or Mika—as representatives of a national news network—should be calling politicians liars in airports either.”
“Have her on your show and debate the issue professionally—or shut up.”
