MSNBC “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski went nuclear on rival Republican President Donald Trump Friday. Which followed the president tweaking her on Twitter a day before:
Trump stated, “Very poor morning TV ratings for MSDNC’s Morning Joe, headed by a complete Psycho named Joe Scarborough and his ditzy airhead wife, Mika, and also @CNN, headed by complete unknowns. Congratulations to @foxandfriends on dominating the mornings (thank you President Trump!).”

Then Brzezinski bashed him, “There’s clear disdain that I have for this president, but look at the facts. Look at how he’s worn us down from his paid off porn star to Russia lies to racism in Charlottesville, racism across the board, children in cages — I mean, lie after lie after lie, conspiracy theories.
Our country right now is really at a breaking point if we don’t find a way to hold this president accountable with his attempts to undermine the Post Office and also his apparent negligence, perhaps purposeful, on saving the American peoples’ lives in this pandemic.”
She added, “You can’t even show leadership on masks. And now you’re politicizing your lies against Joe Biden, who’s saying everyone should wear masks because it could reduce the numbers of transmissions of the coronavirus.”
In addition, “I ask for you to appeal to members of his administration, those who still have a brain, those who aren’t somehow brainwashed by the cult leader or those who aren’t such stooges and so interested in their own special interests and the money they might make somehow that they could care for one second about this country.
How stupid can you be at this point if you follow this president?!”
She declared, “I just wonder what ditzy means? Because if I’m ditzy, you’re disastrous. This has been a disaster. 167,000 people are dead, Donald Trump. Stop tweeting about Morning Joe and Morning Mika and do your damn job.”
