Trump Lashes Out at Cable News Host — Was It Prompted by His Fake Time Magazine Covers?

Jun 29, 2017  •  Post A Comment

Donald Trump unleashed a vicious Twitter attack this morning, firing his harshest comments at cable news host Mika Brzezinski.

In a pair of tweets sent out back-to-back, Trump wrote: “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 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!”

The tweets targeting Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough, co-hosts of the MSNBC program “Morning Joe,” came after Trump was mocked on the show Wednesday over the revelation that Trump had fake Time magazine covers featuring himself posted at his golf resorts. Brzezinski in particular went after Trump over the Time covers.

Trump’s attack on Brzezinski drew a number of pointed responses.

“Brzezinski responded on Twitter by posting a photograph of a Cheerios box that has the phrase ‘made for little hands.’ That was a dig at Trump, who has long been sensitive about the size of his hands,” the AP reports.

In a statement, NBC News spokeswoman Lorie Acio said: “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.”

Mark Kornblau, senior VP of Communications for the NBCUniversal News Group, tweeted: “Never imagined a day when I would think to myself, ‘it is beneath my dignity to respond to the President of the United States.'”

  1. Mark Kornblau has no dignity. How can something be beneath it? After all the attacks NBC has made on Trump, did they expect him to take it forever? And the feigned indignation when he fights back…. What a crock.

    News outlets have got to understand that Trump can reach more people in one tweet than they can with 2 weeks of their “news”. If they don’t stop attacking him with fake news, they will kill any democrats chance of getting elected during the next mid-term election. There are many Democratic senators up for re-election in states won by Trump. If the liberal news outlets continue to attack Trump they are giving him a Senate with over 60 Republicans. They just don’t understand human nature.

    • Just because you don’t like it, that doesn’t make it fake news. And while the news media are far from perfect, they’re basically just getting attacked for doing their jobs. Or would you prefer a news media that just blandly reports whatever the president wants?

  2. 45’s constant insults and tweets are beneath the dignity of the office of POTUS. He has a long history of this kind of gutter crap. Not the mo of a rational man. It is absolutely fine for the press to call him out on the constant lies and chaos, whether he likes it or not. I find the critics of MSM by those that support 45’s history of lying and criticising President Obama (including the bull shit birther accusations by 45) to be two faced at a minimum.

  3. This is the best publicity for Mika. No one in America knows who she is. Now she is the most talked about woman in America. I am sure the ratings for Morning Joe will go up the next ratings cycle.
