Morning Joe vs. President Trump: Whose 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.
So now that Matt Lauer is gone when will the Fake News practitioners at NBC be terminating the contract of Phil Griffin? And will they terminate low ratings Joe Scarborough based on the “unsolved mystery” that took place in Florida years ago? Investigate!
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."
