Donald Trump took to Twitter Thursday morning to blast Morning Joe hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, calling the duo "Psycho Joe" and "Low I.Q. Crazy Mika."
I heard poorly rated @Morning_Joe speaks badly of me (don't watch anymore). Then how come low I.Q. Crazy Mika, along with Psycho Joe, came..— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 29, 2017
...to Mar-a-Lago 3 nights in a row around New Year's Eve, and insisted on joining me. She was bleeding badly from a face-lift. I said no!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 29, 2017
Trump also claimed that Brzezinski and Scarborough insisted on visiting Mar-a-Lago, his resort in Palm Beach, Fla., around New Year’s Eve and claimed she was “bleeding badly” from a facelift.
"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.”
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.
