Morning Joe hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski have been feuding with President Trump for over a year now. While Trump was once friendly with the MSNBC anchors, things have since deteriorated. Trump mocked Mika for "bleeding badly from a face-lift" and recently drudged up a conspiracy theory insinuating Joe committed murder. Many have applauded Morning Joe for sticking to their guns and challenging the president, but others think Trump is right to defend himself. Who's side are you on?

Morning Joe hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski have been feuding with President Trump for over a year now, and things have only gotten uglier with time. The MSNBC hosts were criticized for cozying up to then-candidate Trump, who used to be frequent guest on their show. But in May 2016, the friendship appeared to go sour.

Since then, Trump has ruthlessly attacked Scarborough and Brzezinski, and the Morning Joe hosts have ramped up their criticism of the president, accusing him of being mentally unstable. Trump attacked Brzezinski's looks, claiming she couldn't stay at Mar-a-Lago one New Years Eve because she was "bleeding badly from a face-lift." He also nicknamed the pair "low I.Q. Crazy Mika" and "Psycho Joe," and most recently drudged up an old conspiracy theory about a congressional staffer who was found dead in Scarborough's office back in 2001.

Joe and Mika responded to the president's tweets by reiterating "he is not well," and spoke at length on their program about Trump's fitness for office.

But White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has defended Trump's Twitter attacks against the Morning Joe hosts, claiming he has every right to defend himself.

"I don't think you can expect someone to be personally attacked day after day, minute by minute, and sit back," Sanders said, arguing that the criticism the president and his aides endure is often personal in nature. "When the president gets hit, he's going to hit back harder."

And Trump believes the Morning Joe hosts are just bitter because "their ratings are terrible" and Trump refuses to go on their show.
