Mika and Joe Hit Back: Trump Is Not Well

Mika and Joe Hit Back: Trump Is Not Well

By    |   Friday, 30 June 2017 07:33 AM

MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough slammed President Donald Trump and said his Twitter claims about them are completely false.

The "Morning Joe" hosts made their comments in a column for The Washington Post on Friday. 

"President Trump launched personal attacks against us Thursday, but our concerns about his unmoored behavior go far beyond the personal," they said.

"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.'"

Trump on Thursday tweeted that "low I.Q. Crazy Mika, along with Psycho Joe came to Mar-a-Lago" in December. And he added that "she was bleeding badly from a face-lift."

"Mr. Trump claims that we asked to join him at Mar-a-Lago three nights in a row," the two said in the Post. "That is false. He also claimed that he refused to see us. That is laughable. The president-elect invited us both to dinner on Dec. 30. Joe attended because Mika did not want to.

"After listening to the president-elect talk about his foreign policy plans, Joe was asked by a disappointed Mr. Trump the next day if Mika could also visit Mar-a-Lago that night. She reluctantly agreed to go."

The two said they had a brief conversation with Trump and his wife Melania, politely declined to attend a New Year's Eve party and left after 15 minutes.

"Mr. Trump also claims that Mika was 'bleeding badly from a face-lift.' That is also a lie," they said.

"Putting aside Mr. Trump's never-ending obsession with women's blood, Mika and her face were perfectly intact, as pictures from that night reveal. "

They said Mika had a "little skin under her chin tweaked."

"More significant is Mr. Trump's continued mistreatment of women," the two said. "It is disturbing that the president of the United States keeps up his unrelenting assault on women.

"We were heartened to hear a number of Republican lawmakers call out Mr. Trump for his offensive words and can only hope that the women who are closest to him will follow their examples," they said.

The two noted that have known Trump for more than a decade and share fond memories of their relationship with him.

"But that hasn't stopped us from criticizing his abhorrent behavior or worrying about his fitness," they said.

The two claim they have noticed a change in Trump in recent years.

"Perhaps that is why we were neither shocked nor insulted by the president's personal attack," they said. "The Donald Trump we knew before the campaign was a flawed character, but one who still seemed capable of keeping his worst instincts in check."
