Photos have surfaced depicting the daughter of "Morning Joe" host Mika Brzezinski wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat.
Emilie Hoffer, the young adult daughter of Brzezinski, was captured wearing a hat with the slogan popularized by U.S. President Donald Trump during his 2016 presidential campaign.
The photo, posted to Hoffer's Instagram page, quickly made the rounds of social media in large part due to the ongoing feud between Trump and "Morning Joe" hosts Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough. In a tweet from June 29, Trump referred to the talk show hosts as "crazy low-IQ Mika" and "Psycho Joe," in addition to making reference to a botched face lift that he claimed left Brzezinski bleeding, according to the New York Times.
The photo of Hoffer, dug up by the Conservative Tribune, was posted to Hoffer's personal Instagram profile on July 1. Hoffer, Brzezinski's daughter from a previous marriage, is dressed up for the evening and dons a white cap with the "Make America Great Again" slogan.
The photo caused quite the stir on social media, with several users commenting that Hoffer's allegiance seemed to lay more with Trump than with her own mother.
"Emilie Hoffer (right), daughter of MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski loves Donald Trump," captioned one user on Twitter. "Guessing her and mom don't have a great relationship."
"Who would've known!" offered another. "Turns out Mika Brzezinski's daughter is a strong supporter of the MAGA agenda."
On the other hand, Hoffer also retweeted her mother's pointed reply to Trump on Twitter, in which Brzezinski posted a photo with a Cheerios box that read "Made for Little Hands." The photo, offered without comment, was taken by many to be a reference to the suggestion Trump has small hands. Hoffer retweeted the post June 29 with the caption: "[G]ood genes."
The public spat between Trump and the MSNBC commentators has rankled more than a few Republicans in Congress.
"My first reaction was that this just has to stop, and I was disheartened because I had hoped the personal, ad hominem attacks had been left behind, that we were past that,” Susan Collins, the Republican senator from Maine, told The New York Times.
MSNBC also offered an official response to the president's tweets attacking their hosts Brzezinski and Scarborough.
"It’s a sad day for America when the president spends his time bullying, lying and spewing petty personal attacks instead of doing his job," read the statement.
