CNBC’s Mika Brzezinski is sarcastic and skeptical during an interview with Mike Huckabee on morning joe.”
Mike Huckabee is questioned by Joe Scarborough and about a “subliminal cross” that floats across the background of his Christmas message. In actuality the “floating cross” is the intersecting vertical and horizontal components of a white bookshelf that appears to be moving because of a panning camera that is fixed on Mike Huckabee.

“I don’t know about that Governor. It looks like a cross to me,” Mika said.
Huckabee joined with a little satire of his own, joking that he was signaling with eyes in Morse code a very secret message to Evangelicals.
“Well I have to tell you Governor, I felt blessed … I felt the light shining down on you,” she added.
