Former DNC Chair Joins Those Blasting Trump For Twitter Attack On "Morning Joe" Hosts

If you’re going to lash out at President Donald Trump, you had better be prepared to be hit back. That’s pretty common knowledge at this point in time, but it doesn’t make Trump’s behavior seem any more presidential. He created another unnecessary controversy by sharing some unfiltered thoughts on social media, and the firestorm continues to grow.

As The Hill shares, Trump’s target this time was Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, co-hosts of MSNBC’s ‘Morning Joe.’ At one point in time, the pair seemed to have a solid relationship with the commander-in-chief, and they were even called out by other members of the media for being too cozy with Trump. Somewhere along the way, things took a dramatically different turn.

Scarborough and Brzezinski have turned into two of Trump’s harshest critics, and they have made a sport out of blasting him as often as possible. Some of their commentary has been way too far over the top, as it seems like neither one of them has any concept of respecting the office of the presidency. That being said, they’re cable news talking heads, and they are paid to deliver their opinions while generating interest from viewers.

It appears as if Trump has finally had enough of being treated like a pinata by the pair, and he shot back at them with a pair of tweets.

“I heard poorly rated @Morning_Joe speaks badly of me (don't watch anymore). Then how come low I.Q. Crazy Mika, along with Psycho Joe, came..” read the first post.

“...to Mar-a-Lago 3 nights in a row around New Year's Eve, and insisted on joining me. She was bleeding badly from a face-lift. I said no!” read the second.

Perhaps that seemed like a good idea in the confines of Trump’s cranium, but it did not go over well. As in not even a little bit. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL), former chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, was among the many to lay into Trump for his comments.

“Women are strong. The weak man in the White House can't change that. Neither can his disgusting comments,” read one post.

“We cannot ignore that the President of the United States views women as objects to be rated by their appearance. It's absolutely disgusting,” read another.

“This isn't just about the message this sends to young women, but also to young men. Let's be clear: this is not how a real man behaves,” read a third.

She was not the only one to offer up her take by a long shot, and the criticism would come from both sides of the aisle.

“Mr. President, your tweet was beneath the office and represents what is wrong with American politics, not the greatness of America,” shared Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC).

Quite simply, Trump’s in the wrong here. While there’s no question that the commentary on ‘Morning Joe’ has crossed the line into personal attacks against a sitting president, he needs to stay above the fray here. Informed voters can see right through Scarborough and Brzezinski’s opinions to see that they are advancing an anti-Trump agenda as much as humanly possible. You can certainly see how that would be annoying if you’re the target of the bias, but the president needs to stay above the fray at all times.

By not doing so, he has flipped the script and made Scarborough and Brzezinski into poster children for the anti-Trump movement. It’s a bad look for Trump, and he has no one to blame here but himself.
