President Trump unfollowed MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski on Twitter after his former supposed allies have become increasingly critical of his administration.
Trump’s @realDonaldTrump account as of Monday only follows 41 people. That number dropped from 43 in the last 36 hours after the “Morning Joe” co-hosts were unfollowed by POTUS.
Trump now only follows members of his cabinet and family, friendly media organizations such as Drudge Report, conservative personalities such as Sean Hannity and Ann Coulter, and a variety of Trump businesses.
Scarborough and Brzezinski have a bizarre relationship with Trump. They were early supporters and were once accused of feeding him questions during an MSNBC town hall. Scarborough has been spotted at Trump’s Florida resort as a New Year’s Eve party was kicking off; he was also seen clapping for Trump during the recent join address to Congress.
“Morning Joe” has since emerged as a show that is now extremely critical of Trump and his administration. Brzezinski has said that people are “scared,” and famously banned White House senior aide Kellyanne Conway from appearing on the MSNBC morning show.
Scarborough and Brzezinski has repeatedly both held Trump’s feet to the fire and flip-flopped regarding their support of the president. Some people within the industry have wondered if they offer such extreme hot takes for the sake of ratings. Either way, it appears Trump has had enough.
