Turntables: Mika Brzezinski was interviewed about her relationship with President Trump by human rights activist Zainab Salbi on her show Through Her Eyes (above)
Former friends: She remembered the time she had privately spoken to President Trump about his use of what she considered racist remarks and language (Brzezinski, Scarborough and Trump in 2016)
& # 39; Many people misunderstood the relationship. We were very critical of Donald Trump during the campaign, & Brzezinski said.
& # 39; When he said racist things, we called him out. We even went and attacked him privately and said, "You have to stop this, it's disgusting, it's wrong, and it's not what we know."
According to Brzezinski, President Trump has rejected the idea.
& # 39; He said, "Well, it works," or he would say, "OK, OK, I won't do it, but, you know, it works," & # 39; Brzezinski claimed.
& # 39; And we say something like: & # 39; You know what, we can't support this. & # 39; & # 39;
In the same interview, Brzezinski also talks about the changes she has had to make in her life since she spoke to President Trump.
& # 39; There have been times when he sent the National Enquirer after us & # 39 ;, Brzezinski claimed.
& # 39; Calling my daughters, calling people who have worked for me over the years, personal friends. & # 39;
She later commented: & # 39; It has become scary. And we have made changes in our lives to deal with the fact that it has become frightening & # 39;
The quarrel between the hosts of Morning Joe and President Trump became very public in April 2017 when the later tweeted: I heard poorly rated @Morning_Joe speaks badly about me (don't look anymore). Then how come layer I.Q. Crazy Mika, along with Psycho Joe, came to Mar-a-Lago for 3 nights in a row around New Year's Eve and insisted on joining me. & # 39;
He added: & # 39; She was bleeding badly through a facelift. I said no! & # 39;
The pair told President Trump how soon after these tweets were posted, they & # 39; screaming & # 39; called about Scarborough & # 39; s treatment of Stephen Miller on their schedule.
& # 39; He said, "I invited you to lunch and you're so rude! You're killing this boy!" Said Scarborough, referring to a lunch at Mar-a-Lago.
He went on to claim that President Trump had told him that he should have invited Sean Hannity for lunch.
Buds: "He said," Well, it works, "or he would say," OK, OK, I won't do it. "But, you know, it works," Brzezinski claimed (getting a playful blow from Trump in January 2016)
Brzezinski fired back after those tweets by sharing her own narrative story about a frustrated Ivanka Trump forced to shout at her father at a White House meeting when he ignored her attempts to talk about women's issues.
Brzezinski said the & # 39; disturbing & # 39; interaction made it clear that the billionaire businessman & # 39; way too far away & # 39; was president.
At that time, the two already believed that President Trump & # 39; long ago & # 39; Scarborough claimed that winning the election was just strengthened because of his uncertainties, a conclusion he came too late after the inauguration when he received a call from the new commander-in-chief.
She said that was when she and her husband Joe Scarborough realized & # 39; we can't support this & # 39;
& # 39; I spoke with him for three seconds. You know when you talk to someone and you know they are gone, & Scarborough explained in an interview with New York last year.
& # 39; Oh, this place is so big!, & # 39; he reminded the president during that call, while he also & # 39; talked about the phone system and all the toys he actually had, not about his words. & # 39;
Scarborough added: & # 39; I remember talking on the phone very quickly and, to Mika, I said: & # 39; He has long since disappeared. This is bad. & # 39;
Brzezinski soon discovered firsthand that she said in the interview.
& # 39; When I spoke to Ivanka that morning, she thought: & # 39; We're really going to talk to him about some of these things that I want to do & # 39 ;, Brzezinski recalls.
& # 39; And I was all about supporting everything that is good for empowering women, whether it's a republican as a president or a democrat. I am open to hearing everything. & # 39;
Ivanka was months away from the fact that she had a formal position at the White House at the time, but that was no excuse for the way her father treated her that day, Brzezinski said.
She claimed that the First Daughter tried to discuss the woman's issue, but was ignored by her father, who eventually received a & # 39; what? & # 39; Offer.
That eventually resulted in the calling out of & # 39; Women! & # 39; By Ivanka. and then & # 39; Woah-men! & # 39; for the emphasis said Brzezisnki.
Ivanka also began to draw the figure of a woman in the air with her fingers to help her father.
Brzezinski further stated that President Trump finally responded to the outburst of his frustrated daughter by saying: & women. Yes darling. Yes darling. We can do that. & # 39;
In addition, President Trump also kicked things off that day by asking Brzezinski if she had been to the White House in the Oval Office earlier that month to visit him.
Brzezinski explained that she first came to the age of nine because her father, Zbigniew Brzezinski, was the national security adviser to former President Jimmy Carter.
President Trump tried to bounce back by saying: & # 39; Well, I bet it was your first time, Joe. & # 39;
Scarborough informed President Trump that he had the opportunity to visit earlier when he served in Congress two decades earlier.
& # 39; That was it for both of us & # 39 ;, Scarborough said.
Brezezinski spoke about her father while she appeared on Through Her Eyes.
& # 39; When the name of Trump came into existence when I read him the newspaper in the hospital, how his face would collapse, & # 39; she said.
& # 39; And what I saw in his face was real pain, a real kind of knowledge that this was bad. & # 39;
