Morning Joe addresses controversy with Trump

Still going on about President’s Trump’s tweets against them, “Morning Joe” co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski continued to fight back against the President on Friday morning by questioning his mental state — something they’ve done many times before.

Outraged that the President would finally turn around and call them out for the horrible things they’ve been saying about him for months, Scarborough and Brzezinski actually postponed a scheduled vacation to address Trump’s remarks after writing a scathing opinion piece for the Washington Post which was released on Friday morning, right before “Morning Joe” went on air at 6 a.m.

Brzezinski had fired back on her own with a targeted tweet that suggested that the President has small hands, but on Friday the two got serious.

“President Trump launched personal attacks against us Thursday, but our concerns about his unmoored behavior go far beyond the personal. America’s leaders and allies are asking themselves yet again whether this man is fit to be president. We have our doubts, but we are both certain that the man is not mentally equipped to continue watching our show, ‘Morning Joe,'” wrote the couple, as though one needs a license to watch their talk show.

Keeping with their long-running narrative that Trump’s “mental health” is questionable, they claimed that Trump has an “unhealthy obsession” with their show and stated that “top White House staff members warned that the National Enquirer was planning to publish a negative article about us unless we begged the president to have the story spiked.”

News outlets are claiming that the controversy began Thursday morning with Trump’s tweets about the Morning Joe couple, but everyone seems to forget that Scarborough and Brzezinski have been slamming the President and questioning his mental health ever since he took office.

Finally striking back, President Trump tweeted: “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!”

In their Washington Post column, Scarborough and Brzezinski claimed that Trump was the one who had requested multiple meetings with them. They also denied that Brzezinski had a face lift or was bleeding from a procedure, explaining instead that she just had “a little skin under her chin tweaked.”

MSNBC contributor Donny Deutsch was so angry about Trump’s latest tweets targeting Morning Joe that he got in on the verbal assaults, declaring that when Trump “goes low” he would go just as low. “He’s physically disgusting to look at,” Deutsch said, adding, “He’s not mentally okay.”
