Donald Trump aimed a series of tweets at familiar targets on Saturday, complaining about the media and so-called voter fraud but saving his most direct fire for MSNBC hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough, the subjects of a fierce controversy over online bullying, sexism and accusations of White House blackmail.
The president sent his tweets from his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, where he was spending the Fourth of July holiday. He began with best wishes to Canada on its national holiday but ended – at least for the time being – with another attack on the hosts of Morning Joe.
“Crazy Joe Scarborough and dumb as a rock Mika are not bad people, but their low rated show is dominated by their NBC bosses,” Trump wrote. “Too bad!”
The president first attacked Brzezinski on Thursday, describing her as “low IQ Crazy Mika” and claiming she had been “bleeding badly from a face-lift” during a meeting at Mar-a-Lago, the president’s Florida resort, last New Year’s Eve.
His tweets drew immediate and widespread condemnation from across the political spectrum and the media landscape.
