The first tweet contained the typical name-calling fare from President Trump, the kind of attacks that no longer surprise most people — labeling MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” as “poorly rated” and calling its hosts “low I.Q. Crazy Mika” and “Psycho Joe.”
But the second tweet, landing about six minutes later, caused an immediate and sustained uproar, as it contained a deeply personal and vulgar attack on Mika Brzezinski.
“She was bleeding badly from a face-lift,” the president tweeted Thursday morning, claiming that months earlier, Brzezinski and co-host Joe Scarborough tried to spend time with him at his private club in Florida. “I said no!”
MSNBC responded to President Donald Trump’s Twitter tirade Thursday against “Morning Joe” hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski by saying the president is putting personal grudges over the job he was elected to do.
“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,” MSNBC spokesperson Lorie Acio said in statement.
When asked whether the president’s tweets were “out of line” during his weekly press conference, House Speaker Paul Ryan said, “Obviously I don’t see that as an appropriate comment.”
