White House counsellor Kellyanne Conway may no longer appear on MSNBC's “Morning Joe” after a co-host said she will never allow her to guest on the show. Mika Brzezinski has admitted that she does not want Conway on her show because she does not believe in fake news. She said the counsellor to the US president is “not credible anymore.”

Brzezinski said Conway does not need to text their show. She insisted that as long as she is on it, her appearance on “Morning Joe” is not going to happen.

The American television host and political commentator knows for a fact that the White House counsellor tries to book herself on “Morning Joe.” But Brzezinski is determined to not do her interview. "I don’t believe in fake news or information that is not true. That is — every time I’ve ever seen her on television something is askew, off or incorrect,” she explained.

Co-host Joe Scarborough, a former Republican representative, has also commented about Conway’s television appearances. He believes that she may have been knowingly spreading false information. Conway may only be making statement merely “to prove her relevance.”

“She’s just saying things just to get in front of the TV to prove her relevance because behind the scenes she’s not in these meetings,” Scarborough said. The host is wondering why US President Donald Trump allows her to keep going out to the media and spread inaccurate information.

Conway has been in hot water after her latest appearance in “Fox & Friends,” in which she has endorsed Ivanka Trump’s clothing line. “Go buy Ivanka's stuff, is what I would tell you I hate shopping but I'm going to go get some for myself today,” she said.

Kathleen Clark, a government ethics expert, says Conway may have violated the Code of Federal Regulations’ Section 2635.702 of Title 5. The White House counsellor may have complied with the statute describing “appropriations for the Executive Office were not made for the purpose of endorsing commercial products.”

Prior to joining MSNBC in January 2007, Brzezinski was an anchor of CBS Evening News Weekend Edition and news correspondent for the same network. She is a Williams College alum and member of non-profit group Council of Foreign Relations.

Scarborough, on the other hand, served in the United States House of Representatives from 1995 to 2001 as a Republican from the first district of Florida. He has previously hosted “Scarborough Country” on the same channel.
