'Morning Joe' Hosts Respond To Trump's "Bleeding Face" Tweet

Having replied to President Trump's outburst with a snarky tweet yesterday, 'Morning' Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski made a more considered response this morning suggesting...

"We believe it would be better for America and the rest of the world if he would keep his 60-inch-plus flat-screen TV tuned to ‘Fox & Friends.’"

As The Hill reports, The hosts of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” accused President Trump of lying and called on him to end his “unhealthy obsession with our show” in a Friday morning op-ed responding to the president’s Twitter attack the day before.

“For those lucky enough to miss Thursday’s West Wing temper tantrum, the president continued a year-long habit of lashing out at ‘Morning Joe’ while claiming to never watch it,” Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough wrote for The Washington Post, saying Trump “fit a flurry of falsehoods in his two-part tweetstorm.”

Brzezinski and Scarborough call it "false" that they asked to join Trump three nights in a row, "laughable" that he refused to see them and "a lie" that she was bleeding from a facelift.

"Putting aside Mr. Trump's never-ending obsession with women's blood, Mika and her face were perfectly intact, as pictures from that night reveal...," the co-hosts write. "Mika has never had a face-lift. If she had, it would be evident to anyone watching 'Morning Joe' on their high-definition TV."

 

They add: "She did have a little skin under her chin tweaked, but this was hardly a state secret."

 

Scarborough and Brzezinski said in their Friday op-ed Trump is clearly “not mentally equipped to continue watching our show” if it so upsets him.

We suspect this feud is far from over and with a long holiday weekend ahead, we're sure President Trump will have some downtime to tweet a response.
