"Morning Joe" co-host Mika Brzezinski on Friday reached her breaking point with respect to GOP nominee Donald Trump's various threats and criticisms of his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton.

Trump this week stood by his veterans adviser, New Hampshire politician Al Baldisaro, who refused to apologize after suggesting Clinton face a firing squad for treason.

"Are you kidding me?" Brzezinki — an avowed Democrat — responded. "This actually happened ... This is not the way we want to win, but Hillary Clinton needs to win this election because this is sick."

Then, in an interview on Thursday with CNN's Anderson Cooper, the real estate mogul reiterated his claim that Clinton "is a bigot."

"You have no idea what you words mean," Brzezinski, staring coldly into the camera, told Trump. "I can't pretend and sort of cover this fairly and put it in the veil of objectivity. This is wrong. You have no idea what your words mean and what you're doing to this country."
