“Morning Joe” co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski penned an opinion piece in the Washington Post on Friday titled, “Donald Trump is not well,” in response to the president’s Twitter attack on the pair. Among the numerous insults jammed into a pair of Thursday tweets, Trump said Brzezinski was “bleeding badly from a face-lift,” but they call that a lie.
The co-bylined piece starts off, “Trump launched personal attacks against us Thursday, but our concerns about his unmoored behavior go far beyond the personal. 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.'”
The op-ed continues: “The president’s unhealthy obsession with our show has been in the public record for months, and we are seldom surprised by his posting nasty tweets about us.”
Scarborough and Brzezinski wrote, “The president’s unhealthy obsession with ‘Morning Joe’ does not serve the best interests of either his mental state or the country he runs.”
On Thursday, Trump got personal while attacking the MSNBC hosts on Twitter. The morning show pair go on to detail a variety of threats and lies made by the president, calling his Twitter claim that he refused to see them at Mar-a-Lago “laughable.”
