>> The vicious feud between the President of the United States and a pair of TV anchors is getting uglier. On the show Friday, Morning Joe hosts, Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, questioned Donald Trump’s mental health after the President’s bizarre tweet about Brzezinski’s supposed face-lift, in which he called them psycho Joe and low IQ Crazy Mika.
The pair also accused the President of trying to exert pressure on them with the threat of bad press. In an OpEd in the Washington Post Friday, the two wrote that quote, top White House staff members warned that The National Enquirer was planning to publish a negative article about us unless we begged the President to have the story spiked.
We ignored their desperate pleas. The Presidential Twitter response seemed to confirm that Trump does in fact have that power over The Enquirer, a supermarket tabloid known for printing wacky conspiracies. Quote, watched low rated @Morning_Joe for first time in long time. FAKE NEWS. He called me to stop a National Enquirer article.
I said no! Bad show. But Scarborough responded claiming, he has evidence to back up his assertion though there's reportedly no plan yet to release any of the evidence. Trump's behavior drew a barrage of criticism on Thursday from leaders in both parties, though the White House defended his tweets, saying, it's just Trump being Trump.
>> They knew what they were getting when they voted for Donald Trump and he won overwhelmingly.>> In a statement on its website, The National Enquirer denied any knowledge or discussions between the anchors and the White House.
