“Fire and Fury” author Michael Wolff and President Donald Trump have something in common: They both hate “Morning Joe” host Mika Brzezinski.
On Thursday, Wolff appeared on MSNBC to discuss his book — but he took his ramblings too far for even MSNBC. The author’s nasty suggestion that U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley had an affair with Trump was too much, even for the liberal show that has made a fortune bashing Trump.
Wolff accused Haley’s rejection of the rumor as somehow being a round-about confession — and that led to Brzezinski throwing the disgraced author off set for going too far.
“I didn’t go after her,” Wolff said, “but what I found puzzling was that she would deny something she wasn’t accused of.”
Watch the incredibly awkward exchange here —
“Do you regret inferring anything about Nikki Haley?” asked Brzezinski.

Wolff responded, “Many of the people around the president believe she is still involved with President Trump…That was about her meaning to become the Secretary of State.”
The MSNBC host may be publicly anti-Trump, but she was trapped her by her feminist principles. “You’re slurring a woman. It’s disgraceful.”
“She’s been accused of nothing… Certainly I didn’t accuse her of anything,” said Wolff.
This is untrue, insiders say. Wolff started the rumor that Haley was having an affair, critics have said.
Brzezinski was over the interview by that point. Things quickly took a turn for the worst and Wolff was told to leave. “This is awkward,” Brzezinski said back, “you’re on the set with us. I’m sorry, but you’re done.”
Moments after being kicked off the show, Wolff shot back at Brzezinski like a coward on Twitter.
My bad, the President is right about Mika.

And just like that, another liberal has fallen from the comfortable protection from his fellow snowflakes.
