(Newser) – MSNBC Morning Joe co-anchor Mika Brzezinski “was very scared” when she was mugged early this morning outside a Washington hotel, the Post reports. As she waited for a car, a man approached her and said, “Give me your money and you won’t get hurt.” Brzezinski gave him the only money she had: $6—though he asked for $20.
