"I respect women — beautiful women and women with value — but a woman who sells her body for sexual exploitation, I don't respect," Giuliani said, adding that he doesn't believe Daniels's claim that she had an affair with Trump in 2006.

"So, Stormy you want to bring a case? Let me cross-examine you," Giuliani, the former New York City mayor, added.

"Yeah, let's do that. Let's do that, you misogynistic fool," Brzezinski shot back on "Morning Joe" on Thursday. "Are you kidding me? 'Just look at Stormy Daniels'? Just look at yourself. Are you kidding me? At this moment, where we are with women, you're going to ask us to just look at her?"

"He was incredibly degrading," she added. "On top of the fact that you are hurting the president's case on so many levels.

"So good on ya, keep going, Rudy," Brzezinski finished. "I'm absolutely sickened."

The MSNBC host also tweeted about Giuliani's remarks, calling on women to stand up against Trump and Giuliani's "misogynistic" attacks.

"#stepupforstormy or #speakforyourself Women, no one going 2do this 4us. Speak up against our misogynistic prez & his dispicable lawyer Rudy," she wrote early Thursday.

Daniels's lawyer, Michael Avenatti, also responded to Giuliani's comments on Wednesday, calling the former mayor an "absolute pig."

"Mr. Giuliani is an absolute pig for making those comments, he's basically stating that women that engage in the adult-film industry and other forms of pornography don't have reputations and are not entitled to respect," Avenatti said on CNN.
