‘Morning Joe’ hosts accuse Trump of ‘fat-shaming’


Today, in an op-ed in the Washington Post, “Morning Joe” hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough attempted to clarify that Brzezinski has only been “tweaked,” and has not undergone a face-lift as President Trump suggested in a tweet Thursday.  In an attempt to turn the tables on Trump, they accuse him of “fat shaming” and bring up other accusations of bad behavior.

In the op-ed,  Scarborough and Brzezinski deny that Brzezinski ever got a face-lift, writing, “If she had, it would be evident to anyone watching ‘Morning Joe’ on their high-definition TV.” They admit Brzezinski “did have a little skin under her chin tweaked,” but they insist it was no “state secret” and people she knew were aware of the procedure.

The engaged couple confess that the work was done after Brzezinski’s mom “suggested she do so.” After explaining that Brzezinski’s own mother prompted her to undergo cosmetic surgery, the hosts go on to accuse President Trump of  “fat shaming.”

“From his menstruation musings about Megyn Kelly, to his fat-shaming treatment of a former Miss Universe, to his braggadocio claims about grabbing women’s genitalia, the 45th president is setting the poorest of standards for our children,” Brzezinski and Scarborough wrote.

They are referring to Alicia Machado, who was Miss Universe in 1996, at a time when Donald Trump owned the pageant. Machado was contractually obligated to maintain a certain look, but in 1997 she admitted she’d gained at least 15 pounds. Instead of taking her crown, Trump supported her weight loss efforts. During a televised event, during which Machado was working-out in front of the media, Trump said, “she likes to eat — like all of us.”

Machado has accused Trump of making her feel bad about her weight, and she was paraded around during Hillary Clinton’s failed presidential race.
