One day after Donald Trump took to Twitter to attack MSNBC hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough, the duo fired back to clear their names of the lies Trump “packed into two tweets.”
“I’m fine,” Brzezinski said Friday morning in response to dig about an alleged face-life. “My family brought me up really tough. This is absolutely nothing for me personally. But I am very concerned as to what this once again reveals about the president of the United States.”
“We’re OK, the country’s not,” Scarborough chimed in. “Yesterday was just another example of how deeply personal he is. He attacks women because he fears women.”
“He appears to have a fragile, childlike, impetuous ego that we’ve seen over and over again, especially with women,” Brzezinski added, as she revealed that held no regrets about the joke that allegedly sparked Trump’s attack. “It’s like he can’t take it.”
The pair also addressed Trump’s claim about their visit to Mar-a-Lago, revealing it was a lie. In addition, the two took the time to further address Trump’s face-lift claims, saying that that too was a lie.
“She did have a little skin under her chin tweaked but this was hardly a state secret,” the two said.
“It is disturbing that the president of the United States keeps up his unrelenting assault on women. From his menstruation musing about Megyn Kelly, to his fat-shaming treatment of a former Miss Universe, to his braggadocio claims about grabbing women’s genitalia, the 45th president is setting the poorest of standards for our children,” they added.
In turn, Trump refuted the hosts’ claims, after they revealed that the White House threatened to blackmail them unless they personally asked the president to kill the story.
“Watched low rated @Morning_Joe for the first time in a long time. FAKE NEWS. He called me to stop a National Enquirer article. I said no! Bad show,” Trump, who is friendly with the National Enquirer’s publisher, tweeted.
