BRZEZINSKI: “Susan?”

DEL PERCIO: “You made news this weekend talking about things you didn’t know firsthand, saying you believed it was true but you had no proof that the president had an affair with someone in his administration.”

WOLFF: “Yes.”

DEL PERCIO: “That’s pretty much what you said.”

WOLFF: “Yes.”

DEL PERCIO: “Then you kind of led and indicated if you follow the bread crumbs you can figure out who it was. After a lot of rumors came out, it was speculation that you meant Nikki Haley and you said ‘She’s embraced it’. Don’t you find that absolutely irresponsible at this point in time where we are as a society, when you’re talking about a woman who’s a high profile woman in the Trump administration —“

WOLFF: “Well, let me — let me —“

[crosstalk]

DEL PERCIO: “— to go after her without any evidence, without any facts, it just seems that it is so irresponsible.”

WOLFF: “Well, first thing, I didn’t go after her, and secondly, what I certainly was I meant was I found it puzzling that she would deny something she was not accused of.”

BRZEZINSKI: “Wait a minute. Can I just step in here? Let’s put this next question, the entire credibility of your book which was written really quickly.”

WOLFF: “Excuse me?”

BRZEZINSKI: “Your book —“

WOLFF: “Yes.”

BRZEZINSKI: “— let’s — let’s — let’s put it on this next question. Do you regret inferring anything about Nikki Haley?”

WOLFF: “I — I — I didn’t infer anything about Nikki Haley. What I inferred was that the president is many of the people around the president believe he is still involved with various women.”

DEL PERCIO: “No, but you said she spent a lot of time and private time with —“

[crosstalk]

WOLFF: “That’s — I totally — totally — I mean, that’s exactly what people report. And, now, and specifically that was about her bid to become the secretary of state. So everywhere in the White House —“

BRZEZINSKI: “OK.”

WOLFF: “— they were suddenly in a — in quite a panic that this was actually happening —“

BRZEZINSKI: “Michael, you said —“

[crosstalk]

WOLFF: “— which is why they pushed Pompeo out.”

BRZEZINSKI: “— she has embraced it. I’m going to go as far as to say that you might be having a fun time playing a little game dancing around this but you’re slurring a woman, it’s disgraceful.”

WOLFF: “It’s — and — and Mika, again, she has been accused of nothing, she has decided to deny something she was not accused of.”

BRZEZINSKI: “Right.”

WOLFF: “Certainly I did not accused her of this.”

GUEST: “Wait, are you suggesting that the language is not ambiguous in any way and the things that you’ve said and the way you’ve stated?”

BRZEZINSKI: “Come on, are you kidding? You’re on the set of ‘Morning Joe,’ we don’t BS here.”

WOLFF: “What’s — read me the language.”

BRZEZINSKI: “Are you kidding me? I am not reading you anything.

[crosstalk]

If you don’t get it — if you don’t get what we’re talking about, I’m sorry, this is awkward, you’re here on the set with us, but we’re done. Michael Wolff, thank you. We’re going to go to break now.”
