Kari Lake and MSNBC “Morning Joe” co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski reportedly had a contentious encounter at a Florida airport, during which a cable news aide is reported to have dubbed the former Arizona GOP candidate for governor a “liar” and “election denier.”
An amateur video of the event shows Lake, a fervent admirer of former President Donald Trump, bumping into the left-leaning MSNBC power couple at a terminal in Palm Beach International Airport on Wednesday.
According to Lake, she ran into the pair on her way to the bathroom.
“You guys like to bash 24/7, and that’s okay. But I just wanted to introduce myself,”Lake recalled saying.
“I just wanted to, you know, put the human being behind the face that you guys kind of go after.” she continued.

Following greetings, the conversation became tense when Brzezinski pulled out her phone and began recording them, according to Lake.
Things reportedly escalated more when one of Joe and Mika’s assistances verbally assaulted Lake to her face, saying “You’re a liar. You’re an election denier. You’re delusional.”
Ran into Joe & Mika from @MSNBC at the airport. @joenbc was fairly nice, but his wife @morningmika started recording me, called me a “Liar” & said I was “Delusional”
They constantly lie & disparage me on National TV. I wonder if they’d be brave enough to have me on their show? pic.twitter.com/2HZZSG9yDM

Lake has said that she was the true winner and that the election was invalidated by defective ballot printers. Doug Ducey, a Republican who could only serve two terms, was replaced by Hobbs.
An Arizona appeals court denied Lake’s plea to nullify the election results in February.
