'Morning Joe' hosts suggest media should boycott White House aides 'who repeatedly lie'

“Morning Joe” host Mika Brzezinski on Monday suggested media outlets should boycott White House aides “who repeatedly lie.”

Brzezinski on the MSNBC show specifically pointed to White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, saying that items uncovered in special counsel Robert MuellerRobert (Bob) Swan MuellerLewandowski says Mueller report was 'very clear' in proving 'there was no obstruction,' despite having 'never' read it Fox's Cavuto roasts Trump over criticism of network Mueller report fades from political conversation MORE's redacted report prove Sanders has lied.

“I don’t understand why anybody would have Sarah Sanders on if they know that she is going to lie, Kellyanne Conway if they know that they are going to lie,” Scarborough said on the show, according to a clip shared by Mediate.

“This isn’t opinion, it isn’t subjective, you can stack their words up against words they’ve used in the past and they just lie and they do it openly and if they would like to get angry about that, we’d be glad to run clips all day tomorrow showing their lies.”

Sanders said her misstatements were a "slip of the tongue.”

“I don’t think reporters should have White House staff on who repeatedly lie,” Scarborough concluded Monday. “We can’t have people coming on programs who are going to deliberately lie.”

Brzezinski, who has also regularly criticized the president, added that “it’s time to take a stand,” referring to the media’s interaction with Trump’s White House.

“If [Sanders] won’t step down, we need to step up,” the co-host said.
