"Photographer and writer G.E. Anderson tweeted, "[email protected] just asked if Mike Pompeo is a 'wannabe dictator's butt boy, ' as homophobic a term as I've heard on national morning television.

"SUPER BAD choice of words", she wrote on Twitter.

Grenell called Brzezinski's original comment "totally unacceptable & deeply disturbing" and later criticized her for not apologizing to gay people when she tweeted she was sorry for the choice of words.

Sporting a brand new cropped hairdo and with her husband Doug by her side, Kelly volunteered to comment on Brzezinski, who sparked outrage on Wednesday after she referred to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo as a "wannabe dictator's butt boy".

Brzezinski's remark is hardly the first instance when critics of Donald Trump have used homophobic biases to target him or his policies.

While Anderson wrote he accepted Brzezinski's apologies, dozens of other Twitter users did not think her apology was satisfactory-some even called for the Morning Joe host to be fired. I'm dead serious, I'm asking: "are these the words of a patriot?"

Trump slammed Brzezinski for the comment on Thursday, calling her "crazed" and dissing her for contributing to "terrible ratings". @MSNBC tried and failed to censor it, and did not transcribe her remark in the closed captioning.

UPDATE: 1:57 P.M.: After initially declining comment on Brzezinski's absence, MSNBC said Scarborough's reason for her not being on the program was correct.

There was criticism from the Right; Donald Trump Jr. tweeted, "This is disgusting! I should have said "water boy"... like for football teams or something like that", Brzezinski tweeted in response.
