Mika Brzezinski, co-host of Morning Joe, has swiftly apologized for remarks she made on her MSNBC program directed at the secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, that were widely criticized as homophobic.

Brzezinski was commenting on an interview Pompeo had given to Fox & Friends in which he said the CIA’s conclusion that Saudi Arabia’s crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman, had ordered the murder of dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi were inaccurate.

“Why doesn’t Mike Pompeo care right now?” she asked. “Are the pathetic deflections that we just heard when he appeared on Fox and Friends … is that a patriot speaking, or a wannabe dictator’s butt boy?” she asked.
