Mika Claims Trump Hugs Were ‘Pornographic’ and ‘Handsy’

MSNBC "Morning Joe" co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski joined "The View" panel on Thursday where Mika claimed President Donald Trump's hugs were pornographic and handsy.

Host Whoopi Goldberg started by mentioning Trump does have an obsession with Brzezinski, referencing his previous interactions and personal attacks aimed at the morning TV host.

"It’s been that way from the very beginning," Scarborough said. "And people are like, ‘why is he always so mean to Mika?’"

Joy Behar cut in to answer Scarborough’s rhetorical question.

"He’s attracted to her, maybe," Behar said as Scarborough expressed agreement.

Scarborough said he felt Trump had an "obsession" and "attraction" to Brzezinski even before he ran for president. The MSNBC host then began to demonstrate how he said Trump would walk right past him on set, and go straight up to Brzezinski with hands stretched outwards.

"Don’t do it, it’s pornographic," Brzezinski said, chiding her co-host and fiancé.

Scarborough argued it wasn’t pornographic, and Brzezinski clarified his actions towards her were "handsy."

"It’s just, handsy," Brzezinski said.

"It’s a funny way to hug," Scarborough added.
