Trump again attacks 'Morning Joe' hosts on Twitter

Trump again attacks 'Morning Joe' hosts on Twitter

Since Trump assumed office, many U.S. media outlets, including CNN, have accused the United States president's team of having ties to the Kremlin.

Earlier on Saturday, Trump also tweeted his thoughts about MSNBC firing Greta Van Susteren, a conservative pundit who had been given her own show less than six months ago.

The northern Virginia congresswoman was one of several Republicans to denounce the president's tweets. He also accused her of "bleeding badly from a face-lift" on a past occasion when he encountered her.

Trump uses Twitter prolifically and often as a vehicle to attack critics, including the "Morning Joe" hosts, but Thursday's tweets were seen by many as offensive.

Referring to a meeting with the two anchors at his Florida resort Mar-a-Lago in December 2016, Trump posted a tweeted in which he called them "psycho Joe" and "low IQ insane Mika", and then, wrote that Brzezinski "was bleeding badly from a face-lift".

He called Scarborough "crazy" and Brzezinski "dumb as a rock".

Her "gut" said that Melania was only doing "the worst job in the country" for the sake of her young son, Barron.

The social media sniping with the Morning Joe anchors sparked bipartisan criticism, and Brzezinski fired back by posting a picture of a cereal ad about "little hands". In the article, Brzezinski and Scarborough refute Trump's story as to why the couple were at his Florida home around New Year's Eve.

"First of all, someone bleeding badly at your door and you say, "No"?

We will continue to WIN!" he posted, before ending the day at a rally in Washington that included a similar anti-media barrage.

Trump has repeatedly attacked the cable network since before he was elected, often calling it "fake news".

Trump, who created the commission through executive order in May, lost the popular vote to Democrat Hillary Clinton but has alleged without evidence that up to 5 million people voted illegally. "America's leaders and allies are asking themselves yet again whether this man is fit to be president", they wrote in the Post column.

The article itself includes what the Enquirer says are details about the private lives of Scarborough and Brzezinski, their relationship with each other - they are engaged to be married - and their previous marriages.
