President Trump again attacked MSNBC hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough on Saturday morning, dragging out a feud that has been criticized by both Republicans and Democrats. The President is spending the Fourth of July weekend at his golf club in Bedminister, New Jersey, and he began a series of tweets by congratulating Canada on its 150th birthday. But he quickly returned to his familiar hobby of trashing the media.
Crazy Joe Scarborough and dumb as a rock Mika are not bad people, but their low rated show is dominated by their NBC bosses. Too bad!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 1, 2017
Trump’s tiff with the two hosts, who have often been critical of him on their show, Morning Joe, started earlier this week when the President tweeted several crude comments. He called Brzezinski “low IQ Crazy Mika” and said she’d been “bleeding badly from a face-lift” at a meeting in Mar-a-Lago, the President’s Florida resort. Both hosts have denied the meeting ever took place.
Trump’s comments about Brzezinski appearance were condemned by political leaders on boths sides, and the White House brushed the comments off. Spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters that Americans “knew what they were getting.”
