President Trump angrily lashes out at ‘Morning Joe’ hosts on Twitter
President Trump lashed out at the hosts of MSNBC's “Morning Joe” in two vicious tweets Thursday morning, calling Mika Brzezinski “low I.Q. Crazy Mika” and claiming she had a facelift late last year.
Trump also called Joe Scarborough “Psycho Joe” and said the hosts came to Mar-a-Lago — his private club in Palm Beach, Fla. — three nights in a row around New Year's Eve “and insisted on joining me.” He claimed that Brzezinski “was bleeding badly from a facelift” at the time and that, “I said no!”
Brzezinski and Scarborough were both spotted at Trump's New Year's Eve party, according to pool reports at the time, prompting Scarborough to fire off numerous tweets defending his presence there. At the time, Scarborough said that he and Brzezinski were at the party to set up an interview with the president-elect.( i swear i am in a reality show and i don't even know itCollapse )wapofollowed by...Trump, Scarborough get in Twitter tangle over National Enquirer article
President Donald Trump and “Morning Joe” co-host Joe Scarborough sparred on Twitter on Friday over a National Enquirer article, one day after the president was widely condemned by fellow Republicans for crudely tweeting that Mika Brzezinski had a “low I.Q.” and had been “bleeding badly from a face-lift.”
“Watched low rated @Morning_Joe for first time in long time. FAKE NEWS. He called me to stop a National Enquirer article. I said no! Bad show,” Trump tweeted.
Trump’s latest missive came after Brzezinski and co-host Joe Scarborough wrote an op-ed in The Washington Post, published Friday morning, in which they said the president “is not mentally equipped to continue watching our show.”( I HAVE TAPES OF THIS REALLY THIS TIME I DOCollapse )politi'd'ohoh we are not done yet peopleWhat Really Happened Between Donald Trump, the Hosts of Morning Joe, and the National Enquirer
As a presidential candidate, Donald Trump used his close alliance with the National Enquirer to attack his enemies. Now that he’s President, he’s continuing to benefit from the tabloid’s support.
This morning in a Washington Post op-ed, Morning Joe co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski disclosed that White House officials offered to spike an Enquirer story about their romance if the pair apologized to Trump for the show’s critical coverage. In recent months, Scarborough and Brzezinski have questioned Trump’s mental state and fitness for office. They elaborated on the op-ed on MSNBC this morning. Morning Joe regular Donny Deutsch said it was “blackmail” for Trump to use a hit-piece in the Enquirer to extract an apology from media critics. Trump then tweeted a quasi-confirmation of the behind-the-scenes conversations, saying that Scarborough called to enlist his help to kill the story. Scarborough called Trump’s version a “lie,” tweeting that he never spoke to the president.( he went to jaredCollapse )nymag
