Mika Brzezinski cuts off Michael Wolff on Nikki Haley: 'You’re slurring a woman, it’s disgraceful'

 
Brzezinski then abruptly ended a morning show interview with the bestselling "Fire and Fury" author and sent "Morning Joe" to commercial. 
 
Wolff hinted that Trump was having an affair in "Fire and Fury" and fanned the flames of rumors about Haley last Friday on Bill Maher's HBO show. Haley has denied the allegation.

Wolff said Thursday that he “found it puzzling that she [Haley] would deny something that she was not accused of," during his interview with co-hosts Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough. 

“You might be having a fun time playing a little game dancing around this, but you’re slurring a woman; it’s disgraceful,” Brzezinski said to Wolff. 

“Mika, again, she has been accused of nothing. She has decided to deny something she was not accused of,” Wolff retorted. “Certainly I have not accused her of this.”

“Come on, are you kidding?” Brzezinski asked. “You’re on the set of 'Morning Joe,' we don’t BS here.”
 
After some heated crosstalk, Brzezinski ended the interview. 

“If you don’t get what we’re talking about, I’m sorry, this is awkward, you’re here on the set with us, but we’re done,” Brzezinski declared. “Michael Wolff, thank you. We’re going to go to break now.”

Wolff has been taken to task in recent days by other journalists for the insinuation about Haley. 
"Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House" sold 1.7 million copies in its first three weeks of release.
