President Trump Tweets Personal Attacks
President Trump tweets “Morning Joe” host Mika Brzezinski in unusually personal and vulgar terms. Early this morning, as the show was ending, the president referred to Mika and Her co-host, Joe Scarborough, as “low I.Q. Crazy Mike, along with Psycho Joe. He also described a meeting with Mika in which he said, “she was bleeding badly from a face-lift.” The president referred specifically to an incident at New Year’s. He said she went to Mar-A-Largo three nights in a row around New Year’s Eve, and insisted on joining me. She was bleeding badly from a face-lift. He reportedly said, “No,” to the meeting.
House Speaker Ryan Comments
The president has fumed for weeks about his coverage on “Morning Joe,” where Mr. Scarborough and Ms. Brzezinski have been increasingly blistering in their commentary about the Trump administration. They have openly questioned Mr. Trump’s mental state, comments that particularly upset the president, according to a senior administration official.
Mr. Trump has used the “psycho” moniker in private to describe Mr. Scarborough, and he views the “Morning Joe” criticism as a personal betrayal, the official said. Until recently, the president and the co-hosts had a relatively friendly relationship. Mr. Scarborough and Ms. Brzezinski visited Mr. Trump’s Florida estate, Mar-a-Lago, in January.
