“Fire and Fury” author Michael Wolff was abruptly dumped after an exchange with “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski and Republican strategist Susan Del Percio.

Del Percio and Brzezinski had accused the writer of alluding to an affair between President Donald Trump and UN Ambassador Nikki Haley in his book.

On a podcast with Politico last week, Haley denied having ever had an affair with the president.

During the Thursday morning encounter, Brzezinski criticized Wolff for “having a fun time dancing around this, but you’re slandering a woman. It’s disgraceful.”

Brzezinski cut off Wolff’s response by waving to the director to go to commercial. “We’re done,” she said.
