Trump calls out “Morning Joe”, insulting Mika’s appearance

Renewal of friction present since last June

U.S. President Donald Trump has renewed his public feud with MSNBC daily program Morning Joe, co-hosted by Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski. In the series of tweets made by Trump in the early hours of June 29, he wrote, “I hear 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 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!” It’s unclear what exactly got Trump angered, although the leading theory is the show covering a story in which Trump was reported to have hung fake Time magazine covers of himself in his golf clubs. “Nothing makes a man feel better than making a fake cover of a magazine about himself, lying every day and destroying the country. It’s a good feeling,” Brzezinski said on the show. Brzezinski responded on Twitter with a picture of her box of Cheerios, with the caption “Made for Little Hands”, probably meant as an insult to Trump. MSNBC, meanwhile, released a statement saying, “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.”

Trump would sometimes come on “Morning Joe” in the early stages of his 2016 presidential campaign, probably taking a liking to former Republican politician Scarborough. However, Scarborough criticized Trump when the occasion arose, usually putting in doubt the fundamentals of his campaign. Trump began criticizing “Morning Joe” over their ratings and coverage of the campaign in June. Trump soon began poking at Brzezinski, calling her “neurotic and not very bright” in one tweet. Brzezinski and Scarborough, in response, began criticizing Trump more frequently, questioning his mental health and lobbing insults whenever possible.
