Mika On 'Church Revival' Equal Pay Event—When Obama Spoke You'd Hear Almost Like 'Praise Jesus'

Looks like the left might be getting some of that old-time religion.  Old-time, as in circa 2007-8, when Barack Obama was being hailed as The One and some sort of messiah.

On today's Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski described yesterday's White House equal-pay-for-women event which she attended, sitting next to Valerie Jarrett. Brzezinski said  "it was sort of like a church revival. I'm telling you, every time the president made a comment about why women should be paid equally to men. Equal pay for equal work, talking about the same jobs. You'd hear like "okay." Clapping, and almost like "praise Jesus." It was fun." View the video after the jump.

Your thoughts on this kind of overtly religious fervor for government regulation and the man who promotes it?



JOE SCARBOROUGH: Speaking of women, yesterday, big event at the White House. You were there along with Valerie. And a lot of other people. And of course, the president. Tell us about the event.

MIKA BRZEZINSKI: So this is the east room of the White House. And it was sort of like a church revival. I'm telling you, every time the president made a comment about why women should be paid equally to men. Equal pay for equal work, talking about the same jobs. You'd hear like "okay." Clapping, and almost like "praise Jesus." It was fun.
