MSNBC Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski gave an on-air apology to her viewers this morning for making a crass comment live on-air about Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. She referred to the Secretary of State during Wednesday’s broadcast as “a wannabe dictator’s butt boy,” though she did not use the term again during today’s on-air apology.
She tweeted an apology not long after the Wednesday broadcast:
Totally agree with you -SUPER BAD choice of words .. I should have said “water boy”… like for football teams or something like that.. apologize to @SenatorDurbin too! SO SORRY! https://t.co/zIqsGdK3Tk

And then appropriately delivered one today on the air.
