It only took a week for Mika Brzezinski to nab the elusive booking that escaped her last Friday: her father Zbigniew Brzezinski.
“Joining us now from Washington, a man that is very difficult to book,” Mika said. “I’m serious, you can’t get him on this show…at least I couldn’t book him,” she added.
The show then played a montage of all of the elder Brzezinski’s appearances on other networks—including other MSNBC shows—over the past week discussing the tumultuous situation in Ukraine, ending with last Friday’s “Morning Joe,” where Mika realized her dad wasn’t coming on.
“He’s here! It’s like Santa Claus,” co-host Joe Scarborough shouted, telling Mika her father is very busy and she has to be more patient.
“Totally,” Zbigniew answered Scarborough about whether his daughter is impatient. “You remind me in terms of personality of someone that we nowadays in our household call Daisy.”
“Very cute, very charming, a bit unpredictable…I won’t go into details,” Zbigniew said on Daisy—the family dog. “Thanks dad, I’m sort of diminished now,” Mika concluded.
