Morning Joe cohosts (and newly engaged couple) Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski were all set to take their vacation, getting the jump on Fourth of July weekend. But then Donald Trump had to get disgusting on Twitter.
In case you missed it, the President of the United States angrily tweeted (after a piece in which they made fun of his fake Time magazine covers went viral) that Mika had a “low I.Q.” and that she was just angry that he wouldn’t let her into Mar-a-Lago with her “bleeding” face-lift.
Yeah. Very presidential.
Well, this morning, Joe and Mika decided to postpone their vacay to have a few words with 45…
Miz Brzezinski’s fiancé kicked off their last minute clap back, as he addressed their audience:
“Unfortunately, we’ve learned what we’ve always learned. He for some reason takes things very personally with women. He’s so much worse with women… He attacks women.”
You can say that again. And despite being the focal point of the Trumpster’s latest bout of cyberbullying (you gonna fix this or WHAT, Melania Trump?), the blonde TV personality says she’s doing just fine. The 50-year-old noted:
“I’m fine. My family brought me up really tough…He has a fixation. It does worry me about the country. He appears to have a fragile, impetuous, childlike ego that he can’t take it. It is unbelievably alarming that this president is so easily played. He is so easily played by a cable news host.”
Preach, girl, PREACH! Before concluding the topic, Mr. Scarborough had one piece of advice for POTUS:
“If you don’t like our show, and if you care about what’s best for America, turn us off.”
Although, we doubt Donnie will heed Joe’s advice as the pair revealed in a piece for The Washington Post that the president has an “unhealthy obsession with [their] show.” Staying in tune with their TV reaction to the controversy, the MSNBC stars once again called out Trump’s “mental health” as they wrote:
“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.”
Snap! Snap! Of course, the powerhouse couple didn’t stop there as they took Donald’s tweets to task and pretty much called the Commander-In-Chief a dirty liar. They continued:
“Mr. Trump claims that we asked to join him at Mar-a-Lago three nights in a row. That is false. He also claimed that he refused to see us. That is laughable.
The president-elect invited us both to dinner on December 30. Joe attended because Mika did not want to go. After listening to the president-elect talk about his foreign policy plans, Joe was asked by a disappointed Mr. Trump the next day if Mika could also visit Mar-a-Lago that night. She reluctantly agreed to go. After we arrived, the president-elect pulled us into his family’s living quarters with his wife, Melania, where we had a pleasant conversation. We politely declined his repeated invitations to attend a New Year’s Eve party, and we were back in our car within 15 minutes.”
Yeah, we’re gonna believe this side of the story. Sorry (not sorry), Mr. President.
Oh, and about those allegations Donald made regarding Mika’s supposed “face-lift,” the love birds dished:
“Mika has never had a face-lift. If she had, it would be evident to anyone watching Morning Joe on their high-definition TV. She did have a little skin under her chin tweaked, but this was hardly a state secret. Her mother suggested she do so, and all those around her were aware of this mundane fact.”
Well, there you have it!
Unfortunately, we’re sure Trump will HAVE to say something about this shade. *Sigh*
