Donald Trump Morning Joe

Trump Targets Morning Joe Hosts on Twitter; MSNBC Calls the Attack 'Petty'

Never one to lose sight of the important matters at hand, President Donald Trump on Thursday took aim at the hosts of MSNBC’s Morning Joe, dropping a dizzying amount of insults and insinuations along the way.

Upon hearing that the news team — real-life couple Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski — has been expressing anti-Trump sentiments on air, he launched a serious of outrageous personal attacks on “Psycho Joe” and “Crazy Mika” via Twitter:

(Personally, I’m shocked that our president would go after a woman’s personal appearance for the first time that I can recall.)

In a statement, MSNBC responded, “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.”

And in a slightly-less-official statement, Brzezinski subtweeted Trump with a picture of the world’s shadiest box of Cheerios:

Meanwhile, NBC News’ Peter Alexander — concerned that First Lady Melania Trump’s anti-cyberbullying campaign isn’t proving as successful as it could be — checked in for an update:

  1. Big Mike says:

    And here I am wondering why it took him 6 minutes to send out the second half of that tweet?

  2. Coop says:

    Morning Joe propped him up during the Republican primary for ratings and money, just as other major media members and networks did. The other reason obviously being because they wanted Hillary Clinton to win the Presidency and facing Trump should have been an easy victory. Oops. People like Scarborough and others that boosted him are the worst kinds of hypocrites, acting as though they aren’t directly responsible for this mess of a Presidency. Trump and the Morning Joe deserve each other.

    • The Beach says:

      You are absolutely correct. I would put CNN in that category also. When he was a candidate they covered his every speech and rally like it was “Breaking News”. Without their, and others, over-coverage, Trump would likely not have won the Republican primary. Now they are all freaking out when they only have themselves to blame.

      • Coop says:

        It really wasn’t absent from any network. I understand from a financial standpoint, as Trump = ratings during the campaign. Now Trump hate drives ratings and they’ll follow the money. Smart business decision, but that’s not what the news media was ever supposed to be about. Of course you had other high-level conservatives that were vehemently against one of the other Republican primary candidates and “supported” Trump over that candidate, assuming that once they eliminated the guy they hated, the other (be it Bush, Rubio, Cruz, etc.) would beat Trump head to head. Instead, it never got to that point before it was too late. Bottom line, there’s a lot of blame to go around. Only a couple things the President has done thus far that are overwhelmingly positive. Also, he keeps preventing coverage of the good things by doing stupid stuff like he did today.

  3. Kim R says:

    He’s a child, plain and simple. My opinion has nothing to do with politics. I’m just embarrassed for him. The fake Time cover, name calling, just so childish.

  4. George says:

    His self-esteem must be terribly, terribly low. And it shouldn’t be, he’s a semi-successful businessman and he conned nearly half the country into making him president. But how he acts is how low self-esteem people act.

  5. Tomm Huntre says:

    Mika sees fit to sit on tv three hours a day and shriek, whine, carry on like a fool and CONSTANTLY talk over Joe and guest to get her snarky, crappy little comments about the President AND his family.

    I don’t recall once her calling out Obama and his folks out for lie after lie, slippery scheme after slippery scheme.

    She is a shrill and ridiculous human being. She loves to dish it out three hours a day, five days a week but can’t handle a few Tweets??? Idiot. Full out and out idiot

    • Lauren says:

      Um, every anchor on FOX News bashed Obama for 8 straight years. They cried and cried when he won the second time. Obama was criticized constantly – and he NEVER stooped to this level of childishness by bashing anchors on twitter. Anyone defending Trump over this has to be a complete fool. His tweets should be an embarrassment to you and every American.

      • Tony Lang says:

        Besides, she’s an entertainer, a private corporation pays her to do exactly what she does. Trump tweets, bullies, plays golf, kills the planet and objectifies cute Irish reporters on tax payers’ dime. But hey, “her emails”, amiright?

        • Tomm Huntre says:

          That is where you’re incorrect. Not an entertainer. She states she is a journalist. Can’t have it both ways.

          But again – I’m not defending him. Repeating. I didn’t like either candidate. It’s just fun to watch a liberal journalist who thinks she should be immune get as good as she gets!!

          • JScout says:

            When you say she “can’t handle a few tweets” that is defending idiot Trump. You should be ashamed.

          • jp says:

            I have no dog in the mika game but she is paid by a corporation to perform in whatever context you want to put that. If they were unhappy in that regard they would get rid of her. And the child president just added to their ratings even slightly. Said corporation is probably happy.

    • Lily says:

      Another member of Trump’s cyber bullying brigade, I see . . . How in the world do you still defend his behavior? He is the freaking PRESIDENT of the US!!! You really think this is appropriate behavior for someone in that position???? And yes, Morning Joe show DID criticize Obama all the time, You just CHOSE not to hear it!

    • Mary says:

      Guess you never heard the expression, or your parents never taught you, that two wrongs don’t make it right. Obama went through this for 8 years and not once did he stoop so low. Remember when they go low we go high. The only idiot is #45 and people like you who defend his behavior.

      • Tomm Huntre says:

        Not saying two wrongs don’t make a right.

        I’m pointing out how thin skinned Mika is. Period.

        And to other posters, I didn’t care for Clinton or Trump. But I like Mika less than either.

        • jp says:

          Thin skinned? I don’t watch this Mika but the jr president is the thin skinned one – you twisted that one. If I was her I would get fired over my response I’m sure.

        • kmw says:

          Our President is the most thin skinned person the planet and continually bringing completely unimportant subjects up to deflect from his inability to ruin this country properly is the real issue. And he proves every day with his tweets how thin skinned and childish he really is

        • Mary says:

          Who cares if you like her, that is not the point. There is no justification for the fool to do that period. He is the one who can’t control himself. I can’t stand #45 but I didn’t give a blanket okay for Griffin and her discussing post because I hate him more. Bad behavior is that bad behavior and should be called out.

          • Tomm Huntre says:

            He can’t control himself? Have you WATCHED her show? She’s relentless!! He’s controlled himself far longer than most human beings would have after 15 hours a week of her constant beratings of him AND his family.

            And to frame it as an attack on a woman is wrong. She constantly says she wants to be treated equal to men. Well, I think he’s treated her just as he has men.

          • Mary says:

            That’s is where you are wrong. If he did that to a man I would have reacted the same exact way, but then again the coward would never have attacked them personally regarding looks. Ironic that you can’t see that. No I don’t watch her show. I don’t care if she is relentless. Heck remember the clueless wonder who was relentless against Obama not to mention Fox News. NOT once did he go to the gutter like #45. Stop justifying this fool. This isn’t a one time incident. Remember Carla, Meagan, Rosie, Miss America contestant, the list is endless. He is a poor excuse for a man and the fact that you are excusing him says a lot about your character.

    • Walkie says:

      You embarrass yourself every time you defend Trump’s psychotic behavior. I wonder if there is anything he could do that you would criticize. Says a lot about you. Not good.

    • Angela says:

      Okay, but see, here’s the thing. Trump should be above whatever some journalist or pundit on a TV show says about him. Notice you didn’t see Obama throwing temper tantrums on Twitter every time Fox News criticized him? Notice you never saw him mocking them on a daily basis, or insulting a woman’s looks. Because he was mature and realized that he had an actual job to do, and decided to let their crap go. .
      If people, the president included, have a problem with what the pundits on TV say, there’s nothing wrong with calling them out. But there’s far, far better and mature ways to do so. Trump’s tweets are the wrong way to go about it. And considering how often he throws around the insults on a daily basis, he doesn’t have any room to complain about people insulting him. He’s lost that high moral ground completely.

  6. Lauren says:

    Petty, sexist, thin-skinned, schoolyard bully. This man is an embarrassment to our nation. On top of the fact that these tweets are disgusting, does he seriously not have anything more important to focus on? Nothing else going on in the country, or the world, that he should maybe be working on and talking about? Nope, let’s just keep attacking the media and personally insulting TV anchors. This man is a disgrace.

  7. Mary says:

    Really is a sad day in America with this mentally petulant child . Ironic how his daughter was shocked by the viciousness, and yet her Dad is the number one offender. The level of ignorance this family display is unreal. Sad part about it his minions are there cheering the fool on. It is apparent that this idiot wanted the title but not the responsibility that goes with the job. I don’t care what side of the fence you’re on, anyone who thinks this is acceptable behavior are ignorant classless people.

  8. Lily says:

    What happened to FLOTUS Melania’s campaign to end cyber bullying? Look across the room and tell your husband to shut up and that would be a start. How people still defend this man is beyond me! I do wish Mika had stayed above his level and not responded. Let him hang himself . . . unfortunately, he will take the country down with him.

    • johnsonju says:

      You make an excellent point. ‘We are all being played” including the Generals with 30 year careers and the United States Supreme Court. Trump said he is smarter than Generals, and Judges. Perhaps he is. The attempts to ‘brain wash” us is truly remarkable.

  9. Susannah says:

    Are all the problems in the U.S. solved? Does everyone have food, clothing and good paying jobs? No soldiers at risk around the world? Healthcare for all, etc? That should be the only reason President Trump has time to be on Twitter embarrassing himself and the rest of the country by association. It’s just ridiculous and pathetic!

  10. Jane says:

    The “president” is trash.

  11. Pye says:

    Why is anyone surprised at this behavior? It is EXACTLY how he behaved before.

    Anybody who voted for Trump voted for racism, bigotry, misogyny, ignorance, and no responsibility. This man will never accept responsibility for anything he has ever done. He was and is clearly a narcissist and most likely a psychopath. Any man who can’t admit to ever having made a mistake is someone we do not need and should not have in the White House in any capacity.

    Now the folks who claimed that Hilary was in the pocket of Big Money stand by and cheer as Trump fills the White House with incompetents, more bigots, liars, and the very worst of the worst of Big Money interests who caused and THEN FED OFF the collapse of the real estate market that very nearly brought more than one financial institution to its knees.

    The Republican party is dead. It is being replaced with white supremacists, racists, and billionaires who are out to protect their own interests. The so-called “moral majority” remains silent on Trump and his self-admitted habit of assaulting women. The current Congress is attempting to pass laws on a “no-take-backsies” basis – trying to pass punitive laws that abrogate our rights with clauses that say they CANNOT be rescinded. If that’s not illegal it sure as hell needs to be. When this is over – if we survive the collapse of our society Trump is steering us towards – we will need a constitutional amendment to fix that and prevent it ever happening again.

    This administration is damaging our country and our people. If anything could destroy the USA, it is Trump and his cronyism and his involvement with a fascist dictator.

    I would not call his behavior childish. That’s an insult to children everywhere.

    • HEYScott says:

      What about Obama with his lies and thuggish behavior. Trump leads unlikevobama who is behind with head up people’s butt

      • JScout says:

        You love Trump so much, why don’t you tell us why this behavior is acceptable? And tell us how proud it makes you when you hear these things from your idiot president.

      • Mary says:

        You might not have liked Obama policies, okay. But he never lied like this fool nor did he demonstrate thuggish behavior. Your hatred for him has seriously clouded your thought process. Ironic when his minions can’t defend the ignorant one they throw in Obama, Clinton. I comprehend perfectly why you would vote for the clueless wonder, neither one of you were taught responsibility and integrity.

      • jp says:

        Pointing to someone else’s behavior in response to an allegation. You learned that from the jr president apparently.

  12. The Beach says:

    That Melania even has a “cause” to promote is pretty hilarious itself.

  13. sunshine says:

    Toddlers and media need to learn who is boss. Toddlers learn faster. Mika and Joe are not even close to the top of the heap, they are punching way above their class. Like him or hate him Trump is the big cheese and he fights back.

    • Mary says:

      See that is where you are wrong. #45 works for Americans not the other way around. NO excuse for him to act like a imbecile. They aren’t punching above their class, they are lowering themselves to be eye and eye with him. The man with no integrity or class is trying to bring the U.S. down in the gutter with him and it is a sad day when the GOP and his minions rather sell what little souls they instead of standing up for the Country.

      • Tomm Huntre says:

        Joe is about to take wife #3 – similar to Trump. Joe & Mika are cheating imbiciles. They definately ARE reaching up, laterally at best. To think they are reaching down is LAUGHABLE

    • jp says:

      lol – cheese – must be limburger – you know – the stinky one

  14. jp says:

    If he can’t keep a woman’s personal issue private – which most adults could do – what about real national secrets? Who can trust this bumbling boob.

    • Tomm Huntre says:

      Over Hilary, cheating Joe or twit Mika?? All. Day. Long.

      And that’s coming from someone that really wanted to vote for Bernie but the DNC screwed us outta that choice.

      • Mary says:

        GROW UP. The DNC didn’t screw you out of anything. Bernie didn’t get the VOTES period. He could have ran as an independent, because that is what he was, but even he knew he didn’t stand a chance. You are one of those alt lefts aren’t you.

        • Tomm Huntre says:

          I guess you have chosen not to read or to ignore stories of Deb Wasserman- Schultz and DNC folk manipulating cash flow, information and resources to benefit their chosen candidate. Or the CNN former Clinton operative that gave Hillary questions in advance of at least one debate.

          Wake up!! There is NO innocent politician. Corruption runs throughout DC.

          Mika is just pissed cause this President is fighting back. Husband thief Mika can’t say she wants to be treated equally and then turn around and try to play ‘poor little woman victim’. Mika has made herself a freaking JOKE.

          • Mary says:

            Trump has made himself a freaking JOKE, only he is suppose to represent America. This isn’t just about her, although you hatred is in full force, it is about a imbecile who has made the U.S. a laughing stock of the world. It is idiots like you that justifies his behavior that is even worse. Why wouldn’t the DNC support their candidate? Bernie was not a Democrat never should have been allowed on the ticket in the first place. Hate to break it to you but she isn’t p..d because he’s fighting back, they are loving it, might increase their ratings. We truly do have ignorant people with no integrity in this world. I would say many Parents failed in teaching their children.

  15. kmw says:

    Why should any of us by now be surprised about Trump’s tweets especially where women are concerned. But again he is proving that world and nation matters aren’t as important as skewering a morning shows hosts and insulting said woman host. Sleezeball in chief bashing a woman what a shock. What will be more shocking is when this country re elects this moron. Every day gets more and more idiotic with Trump. if someone would take away his twitter and told him to concentrate on ACTUALLY being the President of the United States maybe people would stop bashing him( at least not as much). insulting people on a daily basis on Twitter isn’t leading a country to be ” great again” its leading to the ruining of this country’s reputation.

  16. AngelWasHere says:

    All I got to say is LOL @ that cereal box. 😂

  17. Larc says:

    Trump is petty, so why should anybody expect what he responds to and what he says to be otherwise?

  18. Angela says:

    “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.”
    Agreed. It’s almost like some of us tried to warn people before the election that Trump’s nasty behavior and temperament was another sign he wasn’t fit for the presidency.
    Love how this article called out Trump for insulting a woman’s looks, too.. Keeping it classy as always, that Trump. How anyone can still support this guy is beyond me.

  19. Tomm Huntre says:

    If anyone should be offended, it’s Conan O’Brien. Joe not only stole Conan’s hair style, Joe managed to get it higher in the air!!!!

  20. BeHumble says:

    Damn, I would love to be a fly on the wall in the white house and see how she talks to her husband after claiming she was going after the bullies when her husband is the number one instigator. Smh

  21. Morisot says:

    How smart is a salesman who talks down his own product?! Any and all who claim to want what is best for America but constantly rant about and “talk down” The President — are as foolish and self destructive as a salesman who rants about his own product. In our own self-interest, we should be trying to sell him to the world, not constantly tear him down.

    • Lily says:

      And the award for the stupidest reply goes to you . . .
      If he acted presidential and worked in the best interest of the country, we wouldn’t have to “sell him to the world” nor “constantly tear him down.” Trump is the hustler, con-man who is a lemon president who I wouldn’t sell to my worst enemy. I would like to tow him to the dump!

      • Morisot says:

        Thanks, Lily, for totally illustrating my point.

        • Lily says:

          No, I don’t think so. You want the American people to ignore his foolish behavior and pretend to the world we agree with him and are behind him all the way?? That, sir (or madam), is not a point; it is a delusion. Even today with all the vital issues at hand, he is still tweeting from his NJ resort about this stupidity. Can you not see his obsessive, petty behavior? Why in the world should I or any other sane American support it?

  22. johnsonju says:

    ‘We are a part of the “best game in town”, including the Generals with 30 year careers and the United States Supreme Court. Trump said he is smarter than Generals, and Judges. Perhaps he is. The attempts to ‘brain wash” us is truly remarkable.

  23. Bark Star says:

    The world continues to be ashamed of america.

  24. Carol Ann Wilson says:

    O my gosh, Mika & Joe, what a couple of assholes. Please you two go away. No one who is invested in what is best for this country wants to hear you go on and on and on how terrible the president is because you don’t like him. Well, guess what? I don’t like you. I think you two are a couple of slime balls. You both need to hang up your journalist hats, if you can even call yourself journalists??, and go away. You are what’s wrong with this country. You don’t oppose the president’s policies; you oppose him, such ignorance from people who are supposedly intelligent?? How do you have a show on television is beyond me…I never tuned in….And now I know why…You’re both horrible. Go away. Pick up Kathy Griffin, Jay Z & Bee (whatever she calls herself these days), Hillary & Bill Clinton, and fly to Johnny Depp’s island and live forever so we never have to hear from any of you again ever….O don’t forget to pick up those other creeps, Obama, his ol’ lady and Susan Rice…You all will live very well together in your ignorance on your own island…You all may be able to get a reality show??!! Isn’t that exciting for you?

    • Mary says:

      Not as excited as you are for defending the TV reality man childish words and acts. Yes by your statement I can see you are one of those die hard minions that no matter what will defend the clueless wonder, one of the 37%. Well by #45 actions he needs to hang up his hat and stop pretending to be holding the highest office. Ignorance is not a good look, either is defending the indefensible.

  25. I.Jean says:

    I miss all past great President that use to Lead America.
