"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 said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter.

Shortly after the president’s tweets, Brzezinski evoked the long-running joke about the size of Trump’s hands, posting a photo of a Cheerios box that says “Made For Little Hands.”

Trump and the Morning Joe hosts, who are reportedly engaged, have had a long running love/hate relationship.

On the campaign trail last year, Trump called the hosts "two clowns" after they criticized his speech at the Republican National Convention. 

Earlier this week, Scarborough defended CNN, which was subjected to a firestorm by Trump and right-leaning pundits over a botched story about Trump’s ties to Russia.

“@CNN has more integrity on its worst day than Donald Trump has on his best,” Scarborough tweeted Tuesday.

Since Trump’s tweets, Scarborough has retweeted colleagues and friends defending him and Brzezinski, including CNN’s Jake Tapper and NBC’s Michael Beschloss and Mark Kornblau.

Never imagined a day when I would think to myself, "it is beneath my dignity to respond to the President of the United States."
