Mika Brzezinski on Wednesday ripped into Secretary of State Mike Pompeo after he deflected questions on the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi during an interview with “Fox & Friends.”  The MSNBC host said, “Are the pathetic deflections that we just heard – is that a patriot speaking? Or a wannabe dictator’s butt boy?” Brzezinski later apologized for her commentary after she was accused of homophobia.  Pompeo defended the Trump administration’s response to the killing and emphasized the strategic partnership between the US and Saudi Arabia.  Pompeo was set to brief the House on Khashoggi’s killing later on Wednesday.
