It’s pretty well documented MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski likes to brag about her workout routine and showcase its effects on her physique. And perhaps for that reason, Brzezinski believes that entitles her to pass judgment on what consumers should put into their bodies.
On MSNBC’s July 6 “Morning Joe,” Brzezinski boasted about San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom’s vending machine soda ban that took effect today. But Brzezinski wanted to take it a step further – not to just ban them in city vending machines, but just stop people from drinking soda altogether.
Perhaps Brzezinski missed irony of making this statement during her show, “Morning Joe brewed by Starbucks Coffee.” Starbucks (NASDAQ: SBUX) is regularly under attack from food police group the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI). In 2002, CSPI accused the coffee of giant of “pouring food porn.”
“We need to stop producing things like this,” Brzezinski declared.
Brzezinski also revealed her other anti-junk food sentiments, but said ultimately getting “rid of soda pop” would be suit her.
“I don't like birthday cake,” Brzezinski said. “It's fattening. And no cupcakes either in schools. No, just get rid of soda pop. That would make me happy. We don’t need it.”
