    Trump attacks 'Morning Joe' hosts in crude tweets about bleeding face-lift

    Trump attacks 'Morning Joe' hosts in crude tweets about bleeding face-lift

    By KELSEY TAMBORRINO 06/29/2017 09:25 AM EDT Updated 06/29/2017 10:05 AM EDT

    President Donald Trump sent out a crude tweet attacking the hosts of “Morning Joe” on Thursday, claiming co-host Mika Brzezinski was “bleeding from a face-lift” during a recent New Year’s visit to Mar-a-Lago.

    In a
    two-part tweet, the president said he “heard poorly rated @Morning_Joe speaks badly of me (don't watch anymore).” Then went on to hit Brzezinski: “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!”

    Trump’s tweets follow a similar one earlier on Thursday morning from White House social media director Dan Scavino Jr., who tweeted from his personal account: “#DumbAsARockMika and lover #JealousJoe are lost, confused & saddened since @POTUS @realDonaldTrump stopped returning their calls! Unhinged.”

    Brzezinski responded shortly after in her own tweet with a photo of a Cheerios box detailing a child and the slogan “Made For Little Hands” — a seemingly pointed reference to the campaign trail during which Trump’s hand size was often targeted.

    The “Morning Joe” hosts have a notorious love-hate relationship with the president. During the 2016 campaign, Trump was a frequent call-in guest to the show and as recently as March, retained Scarborough’s advice on matters before addressing Congress. But the MSNBC show has also faced criticism for being too cozy with the administration.

    In a Vanity Fair report from May on the co-host’s recent engagement, the couple acknowledged meeting with the president more than a week after his inauguration, where Trump reportedly suggested they have their wedding at Mar-a-Lago or the White House. According to Scarborough, Trump even suggested he could be the one to marry them.

    Scarborough and Brzezinski have since become increasingly critical of the president, and Trump has repeatedly attacked them on Twitter, but Thursday's messages marked a new low.

    It was not immediately clear what specific comments set off the Twitter attacks this morning, but the response has been swift.
    “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,” NBC said in a statement, echoing a similar sentiment from the organization's spokesman Mark Kornblau, who tweeted that he "never imagined a day when I would think to myself, 'it is beneath my dignity to respond to the President of the United States.'"
    This morning's tweetstorm is certainly not the only crusade against the media Trump took this week, targeting other outlets that he believes are publishing unfair coverage of his administration.

    Trump attacked The Washington Post on Wednesday, complaining that the “fake news” newspaper was protecting Amazon from tax liabilities with its coverage.

    Representatives for Brzezinski and Scarborough did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

    Their show is sickening. For Joe Scarborough to think anyone still believes he's a Republican, a Conservative, or a good person on any level, he needs a reality check. The things they say about our President are terrible and Joe is even worse than Mika.
