Mika Brzezinski Is Disgusted By Gingrich’s Call For Occupy Protesters To ‘Take A Bath’

(By James Crugnale, Mediaite) - On Monday’s 'Morning Joe', Mika Brzezinski and economist Jeffrey Sachs were both visibly repulsed by Republican frontrunner Newt Gingrich‘s comments that Occupy Wall Street protesters should “get a job and take a bath.”

“That was about one of the most arrogant and un-self aware –and those are the only words I can use — things for any politician in this Republican field to say,” Brezinski fumed.

“Absolutely disgusting,” Sachs exclaimed, “No sense of any meaning in all of this. Absolutely revolting, actually, and especially when what they’re protesting against is the incredible abuse of power, the criminality on Wall Street and so forth that he, yes, taking his millions of dollars, it’s shocking.”

“get a job* and take a bath.”

* - To "get a job", you must have a perfect work history with no gaps, but no more than x number of jobs in the past x years, you must submit to a background check, a drug test, a personality test, a credit check which must be clear, you must be willing to accept a wage that can not possibly pay expenses and pay back any loans you have taken out at the same time, you must have at least five years of experience, a college degree, and these certifications, but don't worry about putting all of that to use because it is entry level, oh, and you MUST be currently employed too.
