On the other hand, Donald Trump says MSNBC and the co-host of “Morning Joe,” Mika Brzezinski, should “immediately” apologize to Pastor Burns. Trump says Friday’s interview of Burns was a “coordinated gang attack.” In a statement on Sunday, Trump calls it “one of the most appalling things I have ever seen on television.”
On Monday’s show, Brzezinski made no mention of the controversy.
