Mika Brzezinski's Attempt to Get Trump Kicked Off Twitter Backfires Spectalularly: 'Final Boss Karen'

Commenters mocked Mika Brzezinski as the ultimate “Karen” after the MSNBC host appealed directly to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey on Wednesday in an attempt to get President Donald Trump booted from the social media platform.
 

The reaction: Twitter users responded en masse by branding Brzezinski a “Karen,” a pejorative term for a middle-aged white woman perceived to be entitled or excessively demanding.
  • “You really asked to speak to the manager of Twitter,” tweeted conservative social media guru Caleb Hull.
  • British rapper Zuby called Brzezinski the “Final Boss Karen.”
  • Others, such as Australian opinion columnist Rita Panahi, reacted with memes:
What set Mika off: Brzezinski’s hugely viral tweet, which racked up nearly 200,000 likes and more than 100,000 retweets, was sparked by Trump’s latest insinuations about her husband and “Morning Joe” co-host, Joe Scarborough. During a Wednesday episode of “Morning Joe,” a visibly upset Brzezinski addressed Trump’s promotion of “conspiracy theories” regarding the decades-old death of an aide to Scarborough. What authorities said about the case: Medical examiners determined that Lori Klausutis’ 2001 death was caused by an accidental head injury after she lost consciousness due to a heart condition.
  • Police said there was no evidence of foul play.
  • Scarborough, then a Florida congressman, was in Washington, D.C., when Klausutis’ died in his Florida office, according to the Pensacola News Journal.
Crickets: As of Thursday, it appeared that Twitter was ignoring Brzezinski's attempts to get the president of the United States removed from its platform.
