Here he goes again: Trump calls MSNBC's Mika 'dumb as a rock'

Posted July 03, 2017

The National Enquirer denied it had coordinated with the Trump White House to publish a story about Morning Joe hosts Joe Scarborough and Mike Brzezinski's alleged romantic relationship.

Two US television hosts attacked by Donald Trump on Twitter have questioned his mental health.

"We have our doubts, but we are both certain that the man is not mentally equipped to continue watching our show, Morning Joe".

"It's blackmail", Brzezinski added on Morning Joe's Friday, June 30, episode.

The National Enquirer responded to the allegations Friday. If anybody's a lawyer in the house and if you think I have a good lawsuit, because I feel like we do.

If anyone believed that Donald Trump was about to stop tweeting about Morning Joe hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough, they were sadly mistaken.

"At the beginning of June, we accurately reported a story that recounted the relationship between Joe Scarborough and Mika Brszezinski, the truth of which is not in dispute".

Maher also had a suggestion for "whoever is doing the babysitting lately": get Trump a toy smart phone designed for children 18 months and older.

Trump's latest tweet came after he was widely condemned for tweeting earlier in the week that Scarborough was a "psycho" and that Brzezinksi has a "low I.Q". "The White House claims that we attack him. No".

"He attacks women because he fears women", Scarborough said.

And Dan Scavino Jr., an assistant to the president, tweeted from his personal account in defense of Trump.

"Word is that @Greta Van Susteren was let go by her out of control bosses at @NBC & @Comcast because she refused to go along w/'Trump hate!'" Mr Trump tweeted at 8:59am (local time).

Mr Trump was friends with Mr David Pecker, chief executive of the National Enquirer's parent company, American Media.

"I'm just telling you, Melania's got the worst job in the country and I don't think she wants do it a lot longer", Brzezinski said.

Brzezinski also said that they received a call about the Enquirer story - actually she said "three people at the very top of the administration" were calling her to urge her and Scarborough to apologize to the president. He called Scarborough "crazy" and Brzezinski "dumb as a rock" but insisted they "are not bad people".
