There were some people laughing Wednesday when conservative radio talk show host Howie Carr launched into an imitation of Native American war whoops while introducing Donald Trump and insulting Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, but MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski wasn't one of them.
"I just think he might want to hide under a rock," the "Morning Joe"
show co-host said Thursday. "I remember back in the dark ages when I was growing up, [our] school had a controversy over its slogan. Back then it was inappropriate. What's he doing?"
On Wednesday, before a Trump rally in Bangor, Maine, Carr slammed into Warren and presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, poking fun at their campaign stop earlier this week in Cincinnati, reports Politico
"You know Elizabeth Warren, right?" Carr said, and then put his hand over his mouth and doing a war whoop imitation, in a reference to Trump's criticism of her claims to Native American ancestry.
Trump earlier this week called Warren "very racist" and "Pocahontas" in an NBC News interview, and his surrogate, former Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown, who Warren defeated in 2012, suggested that she could "take a DNA test."
Thursday morning, NBC's Willie Geist commented that Carr's actions were the kind of thing Trump does not need at this point in his campaign.
"I don't think Howie Carr's audience is offended by it," said Geist, but Trump has made a serious turn to talks about jobs or the economy, but that gets "overshadowed by these moments."
Show host Joe Scarborough also noted that Trump already has the votes of the people who like his stance against political correctness, but there are others who could be turned off by antics such as Carr's.
